I recognized your listing of Norwegian names from a project I'm doing for a descendant of Jens Jenson (1808-1891) who settled in Bosque County 1853 and arrived at the Port of New Orleans. Jens came with $1,000 then and built a log cabin that I think still stands.
His children were by Thornje Knudsdatter (Knuds Daughter?).
According to borrowed family bible documents these are the names of children:
Jens, Knud, Christopher, Even, Imma Stephen, Jens Thomas, Amalia & Martythe Marie.
Jens Junior Jenson was born 1835 in Brovold or Ottersland, Norway. He married Sarah Swenson in Oct 1869 and had:
Therese, Jens Thomas, Clara, Alma, Benny, Julia, Jody, Palmer, Canute, Joseph and Edna.
The various daughters married Grimlan, Knudson, Wallace, Bryan, Reesing, Smith, Morgan, and Adams.
I also have a reference to a Rev. Tilden M Jenson was a Lutheran Minister in Texas between Bosque, Ellis, Dallas Counties before his death in late 1960's. His daughter married a McLennan County Texas Morgan who I'm doing this research. I have a Jenson report of ancestry listing several generations back to Arendahl and Brovold, Norway in 1600's.
Jens Thomas Jenson had 8 children; Therese Jenson Grimland married and had 13 children(?).
Jim Jenson married Miss Rohne and had 3 children.
Selma Petra Jenson married George McNamara Harris in 1936 and had 3 sons.
Contact me at below e-mail for names of other chidlren's husbands and grandchildren.
