Birth Notes: Husband - John Jacob Johnson

1900 Census has John J Johnson and his parents born in Germany. Mary reported born in Denmark. Census has born August 1844, which differs from the obituary. His obituary has his birthdate as 15 August 1854. Mark Johnson has a source with 27 August 1854. It is my guess that 27 August 1854 was the date of his christening.

Obituary says "Bau, Denmark," but there is no such place. However, "Bau" is the German for Bov in Sonderjylland (South Jutland) county on the Jutland peninsula in south Denmark. The main town is Padborg. Since Bau/Bov was held by Germany from 1864 to 1920, that explains the discrepancy. Bov was Danish at the time John Jacob was born.

The city of Bov (German Bau) in the area of Flensborg in Denmark was the site of the Battle of Bov, which began the First Schleswig War on 9 April 1848. Schleswig-Holstein was trying to separate from Denmark. Danish troops defeated a combined force of German, Austrian and Prussian troops. The First Schleswig War lasted from 1848 through 1851, resulting in a Danish victory. The Second Schleswig War erupted on 1 February 1864, when Prussian forces crossed the border into Schleswig. That war ended on 30 October 1864, when Denmark ceded the duchies of Schleswig, Holstein and Saxe-Lauenburg to Prussia and Austria. The Schleswig Plebiscites in 1919 and 1920 resulted in the return of the Aabenraa district to Denmark.


Death Notes: Husband - John Jacob Johnson

Died in St Marys Hospital in Fort Dodge. His residence was in Paton, Iowa. He was a retired farmer at the time of his death. The handwritten notes on his death certificate are difficult to decipher. The best guess is that he was in the hospital from 25 Sept 1929 to 29 Sept 1929, with death about 8:50 p.m. Exploratory surgery had been conducted on 28 Sept 1929. The immediate cause of death was shock due to surgery after attempting relief from an obstruction having to do with his liver (?). A contributory cause was "carcinonotisis."

His death certificate gives his parents' names as Lauretz Johnson (b. Denmark) and Carloine Casperson (b. Germany). The informant was Wm. J. Johnson [his son] of Plover, Ia.


Burial Notes: Husband - John Jacob Johnson

From FindAGrave.com:
John immigrated in 1881 from Germany or Denmark. He married Mary in 1884 probably in Illinois where Lena was born. In 1900 they were the parents of 7 children, all living: Lena, Alexander, Hannah, William, Charlie, Minnie, and Mary.


Research Notes: Husband - John Jacob Johnson

Eldest son of Laurtiz and Caroline Johnson.

The Iowa marriage record for Minnie Johnson and Daniel Urquhart at FamilySearch.org gives Minnie's father as George Johnson (mother Mary Johnson). Although J. J. Johnson's obituary gives his name as J. J. Johnson, and family records have John Jacob Johnson, other sources indicate that he was also known as George J. Johnson. His obituary has John J. Johnson. He appeared as John J. Johnson in the 1910 Census.

Mark Johnson's research has found his name as Jorgen Jacob Jorgensen (Possiblly after Lauritz's and Caroline's fathers). Birth records list J.J.'s father as Lauritz Jorgensen, born Denmark. Mother listed as Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen, born Denmark.

Obituary <Fort Dodge or Paton, Iowa> reads:
Obituary of John J. Johnson

John Jacob Johnson was the eldest son of Lauritz and Caroline Johnson and was born in Bau, Denmark on August 15, 1854, and passed away at the Mercy hospital in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Sept. 29, 1929, at the age of 75 years, 1 month and 15 days.

He was ill at his home in Paton for six weeks when his condition became such that it was necessary to take him to the hospital for special treatment, but little could be done to relieve him.

The funeral services were held at Humboldt last Thursday afternoon. Many from West Bend and Rodman were in attendance.

He was confirmed in the Danish Luthern faith at 16 years of age. In 1881 he came to America with his parents, who settled near Gilmore City, Ill. The following year he became a citizen of the United States.

At the age of thirty years he was married to Mary Johnson on Dec. 22, 1883. To this union ten children were born, all living with the exception of two who passed away in infancy.

He farmed for a number of years in Nebraska and in 1897 came to Iowa where he farmed at West Bend and Rodman. In 1912 he retired and moved to Rodman, later moving to California. Five years ago Mr. and Mrs. Johnson came to Paton, Iowa, where they have since made their home with their daughter, Mrs. O. E. Pearson. He was devoted to his family always thinking of their welfare. He was temperate in his habits and a good example to his family and to those about him. There remains to mour his loss his loving wife and eight devoted children; also six brothers and four sisters and thirteen grandchildren. The children are: John C. Johnson, Chas. J. Johnson, Mrs. Hannah Shriner, all of Long Beach, Cal.; Alex L. Johnson, Newman Grove, Nebr.; Caroline K. Klinge, Curlew, Iowa; Mrs. Minnie Urquhart, Rodman; Wm. J. Johnson, Plover; and Mrs. Mary Pearson, Paton, Iowa.

And now the time has come when hosts of friends far and near have been called upon to part with an esteemed friend and a loving husband and father.

Although the parting has come he has left us with an assurance that he has faith in us in whom he has believed and trusted that we will carry on to successful completion the work he has been forced to leave unfinished. The thought of him watching us from the ramparts of heaven should be an inspiration to us as friends and relatives to carry on reverently and sincerely and to make the outstanding characteristics of his life, which were faith in all things good, honesty and punctuality in all his walks of life and then his benediction will be: "All things whatsoever you would that men should do unto you do ye even so to them."

Death Notes: Child - Alexander L Johnson

From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska, newspaper: "The community was shocked and saddened Friday morning by the news of the sudden death of Alex Johnson while he was visiting relatives at North Platte. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and family left here on Saturday, May 24 for a visit with her sister and her family at North Platte. On Thursday Mr. Johnson was taken very sick with ptomanine [sic] poisoning. A physician was called and he began to improve. Friday morning he was able to be up, but complained of a headache and was lying down. Mrs. Johnson had gone to another room to get some medicine for his headache and was gone only a very short time but when she returned he had passed away. Physicians were called, but could do nothing, death being due to a sudden heart attack."


Research Notes: Child - Alexander L Johnson

Middle initial L does not stand for anything. It is simply L without a period. It may not be on his birth certificate.

Excerpts from obituary in Newman Grove weekly newspaper, fully quoted in a letter to daughter Janine Johnson 8/17/1986, p. 4:

Alexander L. Johnson was born in Seward county, Nebraska September 28, 1885 and and passed away at the home of relatives at North Platte May 30, 1930 at the age of 44 years and 8 months.

At the age of 11 he went to Iowa with his parents where he lived for ten years. In 1907 he went to the new town of Polk, Nebraska where he worked at his trade as a carpenter for five years. On february 12, 1912 [actually Feb. 14, Valentine's Day] he was married at Grand Island to Lulu [Lula Mae] Talbot of Polk. They established their home in Newman Grove [occupying the house recently vacated by Conrad Erickson and known forever as 'the Erickson House'] and have resided here continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough, conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken.

Surviving him are his wife, three children, Clifford, DeWayne and Dorothy Maude; his aged mother, Mrs. Mary Johnson of Paton, Iowa; three brothers and four sisters John C., Chas. J. and Mrs. G. S. Shriner all of Long Beach, California; William J. of Plover, Iowa; Mrs. Lena Klinge of Curlew, Iowa; Mrs. Dan Urquhart of Rodman, Iowa; Mrs. Oscar Pearson of Paton, Iowa.

The remains were brought here from North Platte on Sunday and funeral services were held Tuesday morning from the Methodist church with the pastor, Rev. Walter H. Jackson officiating. Interment was made in Hope cemetery beside his daughter Marjory who passed away a few years ago.

Those from a distance who were here to attend the funeral were his mother, Mrs. J.J. Johnson, Mrs. O.W. Pearson of Plover, Iowa; Mrs. Dan Urquhart of Rodman, Iowa; Anthony Johnson of Wauneta, Nebraska; Mr. and Mrs. Logan Dyghart and daughter of Beaver Crossing; Mrs. [Ralph] Talbot of North Platte; Mr. and Mrs. W.

Research Notes: Husband - Jens Jensen

Note: Based on a letter from Donald M. Johnson to his sister Alice on 23 July 1972, the present researcher originally identified the parents of Jens Christian Jensen as Jens Hansen Smed and Christiane Jensdatter. These were probably the parents of a different Jens Christian Jensen born on 21 Oct 1821 in Bolle, christened on 28 Oct 1821. According to Donald M. Johnson, Jens Hansen was buried in the churchyard of Dronninglund Church, but neither he nor his father before him was able to locate the grave.

According to the church records examined by Finn H. Thomsen, "our" Jens Christian's parents were Jens Jensen and Mette Nielsdatter
