I tried sending you a long followup and it came back. I will try again. The Clayton Library in Houston, Texas has a book in the Wharton County Section called:
DANEVANG TEXAS, A History & Genealogy of the Danish Colony, compiled by Jeanette Lucille Larsen. It is a large Red colored book over 400 pages in length. A large portion of it deals with the Lineages of the Danish immigrants. The Rasmussen's are listed in it, at least 4 to 6 pages of it. Someone who is about a fifth or sixth cousin to me has a Rasmussen who married into his line. The good news is if another Danish family married into the Rasmussen line there will be a notation telling you to go to that family for other descendants. Since my wife died last April I can only go there during days of vacation. I will not be going anytime soon. You have a number of options:
1. Go yourself if you live in the Houston area.
2. You have a friend who lives in the Houston area who could go for you.
3. Call the library and maybe a Research Librarian [they assign a different one each hour] will look the information up for you. You then call back a few days later and they will relay the information to you.
4. See if they would send the whole book out to a library you live near to on what is called "Inter-libary loan" These book can not be checked out but you could make copies of the pages you need and they would then send the book back to Clayton, usually at no charge.
Good luck and good hunting,
