Looking into Jorgensen family history to see if any matches. Karen Anderson was b. Denmark 10/1865 died in WI 4/1935. Her mother died shortly after birth. Raised by the moms family. Hans Jorgensen and wife. Her, Karen/Carries father and her mother were not married, he was a farm hand in Denmark, either he was already married or ran off I don't know. His name was Anders Laursen. That is where Karen/Carrie gets her maiden name Anderson.
She immigrated with grandfather at abt 15 years old in April 1881 to Menominee County Menominee Michigan. My Carrie Anderson married Charles Johnson Aug 1882 in Stephenson Michigan and had children: Matilda, Emma, Edward, Carl, Anna, Clara. Carrie and Charles divorced in 1919 and lived with daughters in Wisconsin in their older age.
