Looking for help locating information on Lene/Lena Pedersen from Denmark

Looking for help locating information on Lene/Lena Pedersen from Denmark

Surnames: Pedersen, Jensen
I am looking for any information available on my 2nd great grandmother, Lene (or Lena) Pedersen from her life in Denmark until she immigrated to the United States. Lene was born around June 25, 1858 in Gullerup, Denmark; married to Jens Peter Jensen on June 12, 1885 in Skanderup, Ribe, Denmark; immigrated to the United States from Frederikshavn, Denmark on the ship Thingvalla with arrival in New York in 1892. Children who immigrated with Jens and Lene (Pedersen) Jensen were James, Bertha Christina, Andrew, and Mette (Mattie). Most interested in identifying Lene's parents, siblings and any children who may have died prior to Jens and Lene's arrival in the United States. My great grandmother, Dusina, always stated she was the 12th child born to this union, but I can only find records for 8 children. Thanks to anyone who can help!

Hi Adam:

This is part of my family as well. Have you seen the family webpage? It hasn't been updated in years but it is very informative.

Take a look at my tree, called Traylor/Lute/Jorgensen/Elkjaer-Petersen family tree

Best of luck to you
