Looking for descendants of Mads Lauritz Madsen, born Feb 26 1865 in Hvirring, Skanderborg, Denmark. Came to the US about 1884. Was a watchmaker/jeweler who settled in Jamestown, ND. He married and had children, then moved to Minneapolis. When his half-siblings came to look him up, he had left his wife and children and gone west. We think he may also have gone by the name of Mads Lewis Madsen, who we find in Glen Ullin, ND from 1920-1948 when he died, but we cannot confirm that they are the same man.
I'm looking for information on Peter Paulson (b. Oct.1831) and his wife Maren Kristine Paulson. Their daughter Karen Elizabeth Peterson (b. March 24, 1852) married Pedar Madsen (b. July 5, 1851). Pedar Madsen's parents were Mads Madsen (b.1818) and his wife Margaret Martinsen. Any information on his parents would be helpful also.
