Peder Ferdinand Pedersen  

Hi Peter,

Petra Danielsen might be Petra Albine Danielsen *January 14, 1866

Maribo/Fuglse/Femø sogn/Kirkebøger/Kirkebog 1854 - 1883 Femø, Ny udgave/Opslag Nr. 73

Do you have further data of the couple/Petra? Marriage certificate, death certificates, orbituaries, any other data from original sources?

I found Petra Danielsen in the Copenhagen Police Emigration Protocols,      The record does not confirm that this person actually is Petra Albine.

Peder Ferdinand Pedersen's mother Mette Christiane Pedersen was born on the island Femø as well.

Kind regards

Yes.

Milton was my grandmother's brother. He had a son named Milton who would have been my mother's cousin.

Excuse me please for neglecting to say thank you, thank you, thank you before. After so long with no information it is nice to know something. My mother visited Denmark once, and probably knew something of her history, but she died before any of our generation cared about genealogy.

 

Thank you,

 

Peter

Peter,

I'm so pleased to help. I found the proof of your Petra being Petra Albine and married to baker Peter Petersen.

Petra Albine's father Niels Peter Danielsen died in 1903 Femø Parish:

The record from the Probate Court (Fejø Birk Skifteprotokol) states that her father died on September 3, 1903 leaving a widow and nine children. The youngest is 24 years old. One of the children is staying in North America.

Next step was to find her mother's dead:

Dorthea Marie Danielsen, born Jørgensen died on May 22, 1912: Probate Court record

Next court record lists the children:

3. Petra Albine Petersen, f. Danielsen 12/1 [Jan 12,] 1866 gift med Bager [married to Baker]

Peter Petersen, 50 Aar gl, boende [living at] 2806 Bristol St. Omaha Nebraska,  Nord Amerika

 

Best regards

Thank you again Britta. I found Peter's grandmother. It appears she raised Peter's mother wither her stepfather as a result of a possibly unfaithful incident.

I am extremely grateful for the resources made available through the efforts of many people.
