I am looking for more information on the following couple (perhaps an obituary, death index listing or city directory listing):
-Peter JOHNSON, b. about 1846 in Denmark
-Annie Sophia JENSEN, his wife, b. about 1848 in Denmark, who seems to have died between 1896 and 1900. If so, it was most likely in Eureka or at least Humboldt County. She may have been buried in Myrtle Grove, where most of my Jensen family was also buried.
Peter and Sophia were married 6 Jun 1875 in Eureka as Peter JOHANSEN and Annie Sophia JENSEN.
The 1880 census shows them in Hydesville as Peter and Sophia JOHNSON. Peter was head of household with his wife and several boarders. They don't seem to have had any children.
I have not been able to find them in the 1900 census.
I think Sophia is my ancestor's sister, Ane Sophie JENSEN, b. 6 Dec 1848 in Denmark. The JENSEN family lived in Humboldt County. A letter written to Denmark by Ane Sophia's mother says that she (the mother) was living for years with Sophia and Peter, first at Hydesville, and then in Eureka.
Any information on this couple will be very welcome.
