Their was no contact info. attached. I researched a little more for you and found the children of Anna and Jonathan were: Elsie (no dates attached)
Elmer Richard b. 20 Oct 1897 in Irene S. Dak.
d. 27 Aug. 1989 in Amery Wisc.
Also found a 1930 census listing for an Elmer R. Jensen and Gertrude Jensen (nee Carr-her parents were living with them) They had two children Robert George b. 11/20/1923 and Patricia Ann b. 4/13/1927. Gertrude was b.9/6/03 in Minneapolis and d. 9 Oct. 1983 in Robinsdale Mn. You could go to the Minnesota historical website (and for $15 they could send a copy of the newspaper obit (http://www.mnhs.org/people/index.htm)-if there was one- and get the names of her children because they could very well still be alive.
Roy Henry
Ethel Marie b. 12 March 1902 (no place listed). She married Victor Valdman Nelsen b. 28 Nov 1897 in Aalborg Denmark and d. 19 Nov. 1964. 3 of their children were Holger Leroy Nelson b. in Storden Mn. and Rachel b. Sept 1930 d. Sept 1930 in Sioux Falls S.D. and Richard Dean Nelsen b. 2 Feb. 1937 d. 2 Feb. 1937 in Sioux Falls S.D.
I found a 1930 census listing for Ethel in Sioux Falls (Victor not there) She was listed as married and as the Head of household (hmmm). Also child Helen b. about 1921 in Mn, Holger, Lucille b. about 1925 in S. Dak. and son Sydney b. about 1928 (also found a 2002 phone # for a Sydney Nelsen in Sioux Falls if interested.)
Wasn't sure how much info you had on Roy so didn't include it here. I've copied alot of this on paper. If you want it just email me at jelvebak@att.net with address and I'll send it to you.
Personally, am research Jens and Mary Jensen from the Albert Lea Mn, area. Had children Christian, Jens Peder, Peter Christain, Nels Martin, Dora, Andrew and Laura. I've done pretty good on all except Nels-can't find him anywhere, but always listed as survivor in obits. Also research Jens' brother Rasmus and wife Christina from the same area.
Let me know if any of this pans out for you or anything else I can do for you.
Jeff
