Missing Danish cousins from Akron

I am trying to turn up some information on 3 ladies whom I have always been told were "cousins", but I don't know exactly what the connection was.

Astrid Hansen, b.1901, d.1982. She married Emil Feddersen, b.1890, (possibly born in Denmark), d.1965. They had a son Charlie. Astrid worked at BF Goodrich.

Her sister Mette Hansen, dates unknown. She worked for the US State Dept. for many years. Reportedly had a fairly important job for a woman at that time. Never married. Retired to Akron.

Ebba Larsen, b.1895, d.1983. She worked for some time as the Registrar at Akron U. Never married.

There were evidently other, related, Larsens, quite well-to-do. One of them had a large estate in the Ghent/Bath area.

If anyone has any information on these ladies, I woould surely appreciate hearing from you. Especially if it can shed light on how they were connected to the Petersen and Nielsen families. Although I tend to suspect that the connection goes back to the old country.

Thank You!
