Christian Madsen Christensen (born 1873), the oldest nephew of my great grandmother, was son of her sister, Kjestina Rosenblatt (1840-1912), and Hans Peter Soerensen Christensen (1845-1912), who lived at Gallehus, Moegeltoender Parish - later Oesterby, Daler Parish in the Duchy of Schleswig.

He departed from Hamburg in 1891 and was married in Greene County, Iowa on March 3rd 1899 to Danish-born Agnes M. Christensen (born 1878).

In November 1899 they were living in Stuart (Adair County), Iowa where he was mentioned as destination for his brother, Peter Christian Christensen (see below), arriving at Quebec, Canada and crossing the border to the US.

1900 they lived in Highland Township, apparently at (or close to) the property of his uncle, Adolph Iversen Rosenblad (link at left), but 1905 they were registered in Cass County, 1910 in Audobon County, 1915 in Guthrie County (Guthrie Center), 1920 in Baker Township, and in 1925 they lived in Decatur County, as they still did in 1930, but after the latest available census from that year neither of the parents has so far been identified accurately anywhere.

They had 2 children, Clarence P. Christensen (1899-1995) and Marie C. Christensen (1903-1981), for whom some details will follow below.

 

Clarence P. Christensen (1899-1995), son of Christian Madsen Christensen (see above), lived at home even after his marriage about 1924 with Clara Main (1903-1981), as they lived in the household of his parents at Decatur (Township and County) by the 1925 Census.

By 1930 they had their own household in the same township on a rented farm (Clarence was, in fact, though probably mistaken, registered at the household of his parents at Center Township, too), but by their deaths, respectively 1995 and 1981, they lived in Leon Township (still Decatur County).

Children have not been identified, so far.

Living descendants, acknowledged or assumed, and their life events will not be published, unless they present their biographical information by themselves with permission to make such content public.

 

Marie C. Christensen (1903-1981), daughter of Christian Madsen Christensen (see above), lived at home until her marriage about 1924 with V. R. Davis (born abt. 1902). His given name(s) were recorded rather unclear, changing between Ben, Bon, Von, Van and Vaughn, quite often extended with the R initial as middle name, and once (by the 1925 Census) just the initials were used.

By the 1930 Census Marie lived again divorced at the household of her parents. She died 1981 still carrying the Davis-surname in Des Moines.

Van R. Davis lived alone 1930, directly neighbouring his parents in Ducatur County, Burrell Township, as owner of his farm. His death could not be convincingly determined due to inadequate match of names and insufficient other sources.

They had two twin-sons, Lenard Davis and Lyle Davis (born abt. May 1925).  

 

Further details will, if available, follow below.
