Generic Silhouette Couple

Johan was born October 16, 1813.

Barbara was born December 19, 1820. Her parents were Hans Jensen and Karen Nielsdr. She was christened in Viby Sogn, Odense, Denmark.

Johan and Barbara's first son Hans was born in 1845 before they were married. He was christened under the name Hans Hansen, his mother's surname, instead of Johansen because they were not married. His first name was probably after Barbara's father.

Johan and Barbara were married on November 12, 1847 in Dalby, Denmark.

Their next child Peder was born a few weeks after their wedding. Peder was probably named for Johan's father. He died one day after his christening. About a year later, Johan and Barbara had another boy and also named him Peder. He was christened exactly a year after the first Peder died.

Their son Ole was born in 1851.

Their daughter Karen was born in 1854.

In about 1871, their son Ole emigrated to the United States. There he met and married Christina, a Swedish immigrant. They had two children, Oscar and Alma. After the children were grown, Ole and Christina returned to Denmark for a visit in 1913. A photograph (presumably of Ole?) shows Johan and Barbara's home in Dalby. The siblings' names are also written on the frame of the photo.

Research & Leads Edit

Maybe Johan:

  • Denmark Baptisms - christened October 19, 1813 in Dalby; most like to be him
  • Denmark Baptisms - christened August 19, 1813 in Viby; wrong location (close though) and 2 months too early
  • Interestingly in both of these records, the mother is named "Maren Jensdr"
  • DanishFamilySearch.com
    • Baptism - hard to read, but appears to be: October 19, 1913; Johan; Peder Johansen
    • 1840 Denmark Census - born about 1813
    • Parish Arrival - name, age, and estimated moving date of 1845 are all correct; no mention of his wife or son

Maybe Barbara:

Johan might have died about 1870, and then Barbara, her two daughters, and son Ole all moved to the United States. Ole certainly emigrated, but the only evidence for the reset of this information comes from the Johnson Violin story which does not mention Johan and Barbara by name.

Literature about illegitimate children Edit

Hans seems to have been born 2 years before his parents' marriage. The handwriting on the record is hard to read though.

MyDanishAncestors.com:

Illegitimate children were common being that 11% of Danish children were born out of wedlock during this time period [19th century]. Most of the time, the couple would get married then the child was not be considered illegitimate... Most birth records list the father first and the mother second, but in many illegitimate births, the mother is listed first and the term "Uagte" (illegitimate) is used in the record.
FamilySearch.org Wiki:
1844 In cases where the child was born out of wedlock, there should be a note stating where the mother was residing 10 months prior to the birth.
