I'm attempting to discover something about my family history and genealogy
in Nebraska, and further back, in Germany. My paternal Grandfather
was Herbert Harry Pfeiffer, Sr., and I know my father's family lived in
Hooper, or around Fremont, NE.
I have discovered the names of Sue Pfeiffer, George Pfeiffer, Margaret
Pfeiffer, "Mag" and Edna Pfeiffer. My paternal Grandmother may have
had the surname Bendle, and I know was related to a Ben Bendle.

I am trying to learn of my Grandfather's activities and residence when
he first arrived in America in 1888. His destination on his ticket
was Hooper. He was escorting Elna Persdotter Lund, 34 years old and
her daughter Ingrid Lovisa, 4 years old. They were joining Ola Lund
(born 6/17/1849) who had gone ahead to prepare their home a year earlier.
I would like to learn what I can about the Lunds, also.
I have notes indicating Peter Thurstenson was on a farm near Craig until
about 1905 when he purchased a farm in Anoka, NE. I also learned
from a newspaper clipping from an Oakland newspaper that he took care of
his nephew, Swen Anderson (April 26, 1901) while Swen was very sick.
This was done in Peter's home in SE Logan twp. Where would this location
I believe he may have had his sister, Elsie Thurstenson (Elna Jönsdotter)
living with him during this time as well as a nephew, Emil Anderson.
Swen's brother, Per Anderson and sister Anna may have also lived with Peter
for a time after their immigration to the US. Anna later married
Ben Benson and moved to near Kansas City - could Ben Benson have come from
Dodge Co? Another clue - I think they would have attended the Swaburg
Lutheran church north of Hooper. I know Swen and
his wife Hannah are buried there. Does this church still exist?
Any clues on any of these people would be appreciated. My wife
and I are planning a researching trip to this area during the first two
weeks of July. Hopefully we can tread upon some of the same ground
my ancestors did.

Searching for information on the HILDING or HILLDING family that migrated
from Sweden. There were five sisters all born in Hässleby,
Jönköping Län, Sweden. The five sisters were Johania
Maria Hilding (born Aug 21, 1842), Christina Carolina Hilding (born Apr
4, 1845); Sarah Mathilda Hilding (born Dec 4, 1847); Anna Sophia
Hilding (born Aug 13, 1855), and Augusta Louisa Hilding (born Aug 28, 1858).
Johania Maria Hilding married Jones Magnus CARLSSON in Burlington, Iowa
in 1880 and I believe soon after migrated to Omaha, NE. They may
have had a daughter named Geneive. I do know that at least one of
the sisters migrated to Dodge Co. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

who lived in Dodge, Nebraska and later moved to North Bend. Edward
died around 1938. They had 6 children, 3 who lived to be adults.

Mabel who died as a young child. Any information would be so appreciated.

We did not know much of our relatives in USA or Denmark. We had in
the past years found out a lot of our family. And only because the American
part of the family had found some old letters written in Danish to the
uncles in USA. 3 brothers emigrated, In 1884, 1888 and 1901. And all to
Fremont, NE.USA. The brother emigrated in 1884, Christian Christensen,
born in1860, had left a huge family, and they are calling for a reunion
in Fremont, NE, in July. 1999. Lars or Louis Christensen, born in 1874,
the brother emigrated in 1888, left no family alive at all. The oldest
brother, Niels Peter Christensen, born in 1854, emigrated in 1901
is giving me all the troubles. But we know for sure, that all three
brothers first stop in USA were Fremont, NE.
File from the Danish police emigration office, when he emigrated:
Name, Occupation, Age, Destination, Contract No., Reg.date, Birthplace,
Birth Parish, Last res, Dest. country, IDcode
Christensen, Niels Peter, Mejerist, 47, Fremont, Nebr., 640, 5/20/01,
Jerlev, Jerslev, Understed, USA, D9701C2613
He arrived on vessel "Norge" in New York early July 1901. I know
from other Danish source material that he was born 1854, May
22nd, in Sterup, Jerslev, Hjørring. He became a widower in
1888, and a his only child died in 1892. The only link we have to Niels
Peter Christensen are two very old letters. One mentioned his only daughter
Astrid, and the other one where the heading is Dear uncle and aunt, and
signed Henry Christensen from Wisconsin. This letter dated 1924. December
I will, yes all in our family will be very grateful, if it will be
possible for you to help us, to find our relatives.
