In Reply to: Mikkel and Peder Madsen, from Sdr Darby, Mors, Denmark by Joan Pedersen of 389

I haven't found the Madsen brothers in Wilton, Muscatine County, Iowa so more hunting needed.

Here's the family in Denmark. At least this gives the full name including middle name and birth years of the brothers, which will help in locating them:

1880
Sønder Draaby Flade Sogn (Parish), Sønder Draaby, Morsø Nørre, Thisted, Denmark
Villads Madsen 39 married, all people in family born in Draaby parish, Thisted amt
Ane Nielsen 37
Mikkel Knudsen Madsen 8 [born about 1872]
Peder Kristian Madsen 6 [born about 1874]
Niels Kristen Madsen 1 [born about 1879]

This place in Denmark is situated on the island of Mors, in the Limfjord of northwest Jutland. [Sønder = South]


1890
Sønder Draaby, Sønder Draaby, Morsø Nørre, Thisted, Denmark
Villads Madsen 49 widower murer (brick mason, I think)
Maren Kjerstine Kristensen, 67, housekeeper
Niels Kristian Madsen 11


1892 Immigration (entering USA) found by Danish genealogist poster:
Arrive New York 05 March 1892 on the ship Hekla
Mikkel K. Madsen age 20 [born about 1872]
Peter K. Madsen age 18 [born about 1874]
Destination Wilton, Iowa


On this link you will see the Danish emigration (leaving Denmark) record for Mikkel Knudsen Madsen age 20 and Peter Madsen 18 ** Registered to emigrate on 17 February 1892 **
Last residence Sr. Draaby, Thisted (on Mors) ** Destination Wilton, Iowa
