I'am looking for the Parents names of Rasmus Jensen Petersen. Rasmus was born in Denmark in Jan. of 1855 he emmigrated to America with his parents at the age of 10 in 1865. They settled in New Denmark Brown county Wisconsin. On July 3rd of 1885 he married Susanna Mortensen also of New Denmark. They moved to Minneapolis Minnesota where they had 3 children Anthony, Jesse and Ellen. Rasmus died in 1896. They sent Rasmus's remains back to New Denmark for burial and I assume he was buried with his parents. Rasmus is my great grandfather.
