Thank you so much for your help. The clue I spoke of was the possible birthplace of Gjertrud.
Johan's son Ferdinand was my 2nd great-grandfather. I've seen the message from John Brathen & tried to reply, but never received a response. I communicate with my relatives in Norway but none of them can find where Johan was born. I think one census said he was from Copenhagen.
I've found so many possible clues, like:
Ferdinand's sister-in-law married Christian Fenger, who was a famous surgeon in Denmark. Ferdinand named his son Christian Fenger(Martini).
Some of the Danish parish records are unable to read, but I've searched through alot of them, with no luck.
Thank you again. The search goes on, Lori
