The Mott family in Denmark was given the right to use the name as a family by royal decree in 1904, October 10 to my great-grandfather, Christen Larsen Mott.
I have done extensive research on the family tree in Denmark since 1975.
Of my Great-Grandfather's 8 children three emigrated to North America in 1899 and 1903. There names were: Sofus Larsen Mott (1903), Aage Johannes Larsen Mott (1899), and Jørgen Peter Reinhold Larsen Mott (1899) (the last one is my grand father, who later returned back to Denmark where he married my grandmother, Dagmar Lassen (his third wife).
My grand father's two oldest children joined him later in USA. Their names were Emanuel and Steffen. Steffen is supposed to have gone to Canada to join his mother there, and is has been sand that he later enrolled in the RCMP.
The whereabouts of Sofus is completely unknown to the family in Denmark.
Johannes died in the 1950's. He was married to Louella. They had three children: Doris, Elmer, and Margaret. Any information of that part of the family would be very welcome.
