I am interested in any information on or communication with descendants
of Hans Christensen Farsensen and Maren Christensen Farsensen.
Hans (aka Jens and Christ) was born Oct. 4, 1853 in Taebring, Denmark.
He died Dec. 18, 1936 in Beloit, WI.

Maren was born in Rakkeby, Denmark, on Feb. 16, 1847. They were married
Feb. 13, 1880, in Taebring. They moved to McHenry County near Alden in
1882. Maren (or Marion) died Feb. 25, 1917, on their farm near Alden.

Their children included:
Christina Farsensen, born June 20, 1880, in Denmark. She married William
L. Martin.
Fredricka Farsensen, born Sept. 14, 1881, in Denmark. She married Nels
Nelsena "Sena" Farsensen, born March 27, 1884, in Illinois. She married
Eugene Chilson.
Petra Martha Farsensen, born abt 1885 in Illinois. She married Jeff
Perhaps a Viola Farsensen born in 1904.

Maren had three children from a previous relationship:
Katrine Maria Christensen, born July 27, 1872, in Denmark. She married
Robert Wimmersted.
Ben (Bendt) Christensen, born Sept. 5, 1870, in Denmark. Married Daisy.
Hans Christiansen born Aug. 16, 1878. Died 1925 perhaps in Sharon,
