Cathrine Christine Juul (1853-1932), a cousin of my great grandmother; daughter of her father's sister, was born 1853 at Moegeltoender, Toender County to labourer Peter Petersen Juul (1812-1884) and wife Cathrine Christine Rosenblad (1810-1898).

She left 1871 and arrived - via Liverpool, England - at New York harbour on April 25th on board the SS Nemesis among a total of 1040 steerage passengers - most of them Irish, but minor groups from other North-Western European nations.

"Catherine Juhl" was - clearly identified as coming from "Denmark" - listed among the 21 Swedish passengers, and as she - apparently within the next year - married Swedish born Peter Larson (1840-xxxx), this might indicate that a connection to some Swedish community was maintained in the US, because Peter Larson was not on board the SS Nemesis. The time and place of his arrival into the US couldn't be documented properly, so far. Censuses claim - almost unanimously - 1872, but no passenger lists from that year approximately matching both name, age and origin has been found, yet. 

According to the 1900 Census they were married about 1872, but assumedly not in Illinois, as the marriage was not recorded there among those accessible at www.ancestry.com. Their first child, however, was born in Illinois about 1873, and by the 1880 Census the family lived at Chicago.

By the 1900 Census they had split up, perhaps for occupational reasons, but more likely due to serious discrepancies. Anyhow, Peter Larson lived alone as a day labourer at the City of Stillwater, Washington County, Minnesota. He had a rented dwelling by a Swedish born widow in the same neighbourhood as an Olson-family (see below), which was, apparently, his sister and brother-in-law, as he later - 1920 - lived at the household of their children, registered as "uncle". 

Peter was still registered as married and anything else matched the entries by the 1880 Census as well as those by Cathrine at Chicago, who also was registered as married, but living alone with the youngest three children at home by the 1900 Census, and by Cathrine was furthermore entered, that she had born 6 children, from whom 4 was alive by 1900. This means, that just one of the oldest three children (registered in 1880) had survived by then, but it has not been possible to trace any of them, yet.

In 1910 Peter Larson, still living in Minnesota, was registered as divorced, while Cathrine stayed at Chicago, now at the household of son Perry Larson (see below) and registered as widow, and in 1920 Peter lived - as mentioned above - at the household of his nephews and nieces at Golden Valley, Minneapolis Township, Hennepin County, Minnesota, now registered as widow, just like Cathrine, who lived - by then - at the household of daughter Mabel (see below) and still at Chicago.

Several persons named Peter Larson from counties in the Minneapolis-St. Louis area appear in the Minnesota Death Records from 1920 on. One of them will definitely - considering his age - be the former husband of Cathrine, but an accurate identification wasn't achieved, so far.

Cathrine still lived by daughter Mabel at Chicago in 1930, and - considering her middle name - it was apparently her that was entered in the Death Records of Cook County, Illinois under April 29th 1932 as "Catherine C. Larson".

In 1912 Adolph Iversen Rosenblad (link at left) had, according to a newspaper-note, a visitor, Mrs. Larson from Chicago, at his home at Highland Township, Guthrie County, Illinois. She was presented to the readers of "The Bayard Advocate" as his cousin,  accompanied by a daughter, Mrs. McGraw of Chicago, who hasn't been accurately identified, so far (see below).

Allegedly it was "the second time in thirty-nine years the cousins have met, the former occasion being two years ago". This indicates they met in the US, because Adolph arrived 1872, and thus "Mrs. Larson" must have been present there, too.

Tracing the faith of all children of Adolph's uncles and aunts, Cathrine seems to have been the only one of those, who could possibly have emigrated from Denmark/Schleswig being of appropriate age at the time in question to become "Mrs. Larson", and the findings above confirm this fairly satisfactory, even if her marriage and the identity of "Mrs. McGraw" could not be detected, so far.

Two nephews of Cathrine, Peter Christian Slot (Sloat) (1869-xxxx) and Peter Petersen (Perry) Slot (Sloat) (1872-xxxx). They were sons of her sister, Jette Christine Juul (1842-1920), and Jens Petersen Slot (1835-1901).

Someone else (living in the US) collects knowledge of the Sloat-lineage. Contact will, of course, be established on request!

Cathrine Christine Juul and Peter Larson had the following 6 children: Edward Larson (born about 1873), Tena Larson (born about 1876), Ellen Larson (born about 1878), Julia L. Larson (born 1880), Mabel P. Larson (born 1883) and Perry Frederick Larson (born 1885). Their biographies and descendants will - as far as possible - be sketched below.
