Christ/Christian Larson family, Becker, Sherburne, MN
Posted by: Sheila Knudson (ID *****1084) Date: February 28, 2012 at 12:27:37

Hi,
I have been looking for information on Christ (Christian) Larson, a farming family in Becker, MN.

Christ is from Denmark b. 2/22/1834

I beleive Christ was married a few times. He had a wife when he came from Denmark, a message I received indicated her name Ane. Ane died with the birth of their fourth (4) child, Christ had a son born in Denmark ~ Louis P. and a child born on board the ship on the way to the U.S., his name was Harry. two (2) more children Christina and Charles were born in Illinois.

Then Christ moved to St. Paul, MN, (he wasn't here very long) but I think he met and married Christina Fredricka, Buck, Larson, in St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota. They married in 1888. However I can not pull up any info on their marriage?

From MN they moved to Becker and had 6 children,all born in MN., Annie, Margaret (Maggie), James, John, Rosie and Lillian.

To make things even stranger, the 1910 Census shows Christ has another wife ~ Gustava (not sure of that spelling) I think she had a child John II ~ I can't find anything on her either. He would have been about 6 months old in the 1910 Census, he also is in the family plot.

The other conusing bit of information is Christs' wife Christina didn't die until 1913, but, in 1910 he's married to someone else??

Both Christ ans Christina are buried in Becker, in the family plot.


HELP!!! Thanks for any and all help you can provide to help in the mystery search....

Sheila
