Jenny Jorgensen, dau of Rasmus Johan Jorgensen and Ingeborg Olsen, was born ca 1884 in Norway, probably in Stavanger. She came to Philadelphia, PA in 1904 via Liverpool from Stavanger Norway. In the 1900 census of Stavanger she is shown as a maid to a ship captain and his family. Her brother was in an orphan home for boys in Stavanger at that time. At any rate, Jenny/Jennie apparently (according to family story) became a Olympic swimmer. WOuld love to know what happened to her! Trish Elliott-Kashima, Lawrenceburg, TN
