News: Rasmus Christensen and Karoline Karlsdatter
New information about their children
My great-great-great-great-grandparents Rasmus Christensen and Karoline Karlsdatter had 8 children which I have tried to find more details on, and in most cases I succeeded in following their lives to the end.
Two of the children died before they were adults. The first daughter Zidsel Marie was only 1 year old when she died. The parents followed the customs of that time of naming the next daughter after the dead one, so their second daughter was given the exact same name. The son Christen died at age 15. Unfortunately, the cause of death is rarely stated in the Danish death records, so it is not known why the two children died.
The oldest child, the son Anders coped differently, because he had two spouses, with whom he had a total of 10 children. The daughter Bodil was harder to follow and I haven't found her death, yet, but I found her eight children and one of her grandchildren. The daughter Else Marie was married in 1851, but died 5 years later, so she only reached the age of 27 and had 2 children.
As for the youngest daughters Anne and Karen, I had to give up following them, so I have not found either spouses or deaths to them. However, Rasmus and Karoline had a foster son named Carl Johansen and I found out that he was actually their daughter Zidsel Marie's son. He was born out of wedlock, but fared well in spite of everything, for he owned a house in Alderslyst for many years.
Naturally, I will continue to search for information on all the above persons, but if you have information about any of them, I would love to hear from you.
