Anna Marie Hansen - Need Help Finding Info...

I am in need of help. I am trying to find information on my Great Great Grandmother who I have no info on. She was Anna Marie Hansen (assuming Hansen was here married name as my Great Grandmother was also a Hansen). She was born somewhere in Denmark in 1850 and imigrated to St. Louis, Missouri, USA in 1868. If anyone can help me find information about her husband, parents, siblings or even where she was born it would be great. Information on her from St. Louis is also limited. I do have a couple of pictures of her, but anyone with information here in Missouri has now passed away. Many thanks for anyone who can help.

Here is a possibility.

Name: Hansen, Ane Marie Occupation: Hustru
Age: ? Destination: New York
Contract no.: 76300 Registration date: 10/9/1868
Last res. parish: Rønninge Last res. county: Odense
Last residence: Rønninge, Odense Amt Destination country: USA
Destination city: New York City Destination state: New York State
Name of ship: Indirekte
Remarks: Opr. Idnr: I680011802. ALD: Ingen oplyst IDcode: I1868H0017

Here is a Ane Marie Hsnsen of Rønninge in the 1860 census.

All persons in the household

Odense, Aasum, Rønninge, Rønninge, , et huus, 87, FT-1860
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Hans Wilhelmsen 33 Gift huusmand, dagleier her i sognet [Rønninge]
Marie Kirstine Nielsdatter 37 Gift hans kone do [Rønninge]
Ane Marie Hansen 10 Ugift deres børn do [Rønninge]
Karen Hansen 7 Ugift deres børn do [Rønninge]
Wilhelmine Hansen 4 Ugift deres børn do [Rønninge]

The one problem is the parish records show an 18 year old Ane Marie Hansen going to Vlødstrup??.

Have you found the manifest of the ship on which your ancestor came to the US. If so does it give her age as 18?

Sincerely,
Paul

Perhaps details of her daughter (your great grandmother) would help us trace the family back in censuses and other records:

What was your GGM's name and when & where was she born? Did she have siblings whose names you know? Who was your great grandfather?

my Great Grandmother was also Anna Marie Hansen. She was born in Oct 1874 in St. Louis, Missouri. She married Clyde Wallace Clark b: June 1874 d: 1928. I am not aware of Anna Marie having any brothers or sisters, but that doesn't mean there were not any. My Great Great Grandmother Anna Marie was born in 1850 in Denmark and came to the US - St. Louis, Missouri in 1868. That is all I know. I have no info on her husband or if there were any other children besides Anna Marie. Strange thing is I believe she died somewhere between the 1920's and 1940's but there is no record of her death I can find in St. Louis, Missouri. After her husband died, she lived with her daughter Anna Marie who died in 1943. I am wanting more info from back in Denmark and who her husband was here in the US.

I believe this is your GGM's family:

1880 St Louis census
Herman Hansen 40 Denmark, carpenter
Annie Hansen 31 Denmark
Helena Hansen 8 Mo
Mary Hansen 6 Mo [Anna Marie]
Sophia Hansen 4 Mo
William Hansen 2 Mo

1900 St Louis - 2846 Lemp
Anna Hansen, June 1849 Denmark, widow, to US 1869
Willie Hansen, Dec 1878 Mo
Christina Hansen, Dec 1883 Mo
Arthur Hansen, Jan 1888 Mo [Christian A.]

1910 St Louis - 2846 Lemp
FAMILY 50
Anna Hansen 60 Denmark, widow, to US 1868
Christine Spain 26 Mo, daughter
Charles E. Spain 27 IL, son in law
Christian A. Hansen 22 Mo, son
Christian P. Smith 66 Denmark, brother [Smith = Schmidt]
FAMILY 51
Clyde W. Clark 35 IL
Anna M. Clark 33 Mo, wife
Hile H. Clark
Clyde W. Clark Jr.
FAMILY 52
Herman W. Hansen 31 Mo, parents born Denmark
Martha Hansen 29 Germany
Herman Hansen Jr. 8 Mo
Elmer F. Hansen 3 Mo

Here are Christian Hansen and Herman W. Hansen Jr's death certificates listing parents as Herman W. Hansen and Anna Schmidt:

ADDED: Here is data of this family posted on WorldConnect by a Danish man:

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&d...

But he lists the mother Anna's middle name as Christina and her birth place as Prussia, which conflicts with the U.S. censuses.

A message from a person who is a family researcher in this family, re. Hermann Willer Hansen, died 20 Aug 1896, buried St. Matthew Cemetery, and gives his contact information:

http://www.cravescavesandgraves.com/2009/11/st-matthew-cemet...

Online post by him says he is descended from

Herman Willer Hansen
married
Anna Christina Schmidt
both of Denmark, married in St. Louis MO.

Their son Herman Willa Hansen b 1878 [= "Willie" probably]
married
Martha Roelke

Their son
Herman Willa Hansen b 1901

Here is the death of Anna's brother Christian, listed as a widower and cigar maker in the household 1910.

Anna M. Clark provided the info, and listed their parents as Peter Nissen Schmidt and Helena Tomsen:

http://www.sos.mo.gov/images/archives/deathcerts/1924/1924_0...

------------------------------

And this matches the family in the 1845 Danish census:

Flensburg, Husbyharde, Adelby, Süderhohlweg, , Kathengebäude, 194 F2, FT-1845
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Peter Nissen Schmidt 35 Verheir. Häuerling, Tagelöhner Hadersleben
Helena Thomsen 34 Verheir. seine Ehefrau Jürgensby
Knud Jensen 18 Unverheir. ihre Kinder Adelbye
Maria Jensen 15 Unverheir. ihre Kinder Adelbye
Christian Jensen 13 Unverheir. ihre Kinder Adelbye
Christian P. Schmidt 2 Unverheir. ihre Kinder Hohlweg
Anna Schmidt 1 Unverheir. ihre Kinder Hohlweg

(The Anna listed may be an earlier Anna who died, and Anna born 1849 named for her as was the custom)

There is a Hohlweg now part of Kappeln, SE of Flensburg, today part of Germany.

I believe this is her. Thank you all so much for the help. I had seen Herman at one time, but wasn't sure. I wish I could figure out when Anna Marie Schmidt died. All I can find is the census where she is living with her daughter in the 20's or 30's
