I am looking for ancestors of Marius Oliver Emanuel Nielsen in Denmark. He was born 16 April 1880 in Nakskov, Denmark. He is the only sibling of 7 to come to the U.S.
His nephew, Axel Nielsen, also emigrated to the U.S.
His parents are Ferdinand William Nielsen and Sophie Andersen. Marius' siblings include Erhardt, George, Hubert, Claudia, Vilia, and Dagmar. Marius was the youngest of the children.
Many thanks to Stig Lenskjaer for sharing dates of birth, baptism records, and census data with me from Denmark.
Marius wrote a book which he entitled "My Life Is No Secret Anymore". I will include it on this site in sections as I get it data entered. It is not corrected gramatically, but reads as Marius spoke it to his granddaughter Vilia Buterakos, who typed it in its original form.
Most of the photographs used here are from the personal collection of Petra Jespersen Nielsen, my Great Grandmother and wife of Marius. They were passed on to her daughter, Vilia Jennings. They are on loan to me from my mother, Janice Walton. Thank you for so lovingly preserving our history in pictures for following generations.
