Looking For Martinus JENSEN born abt January 15, 1879 in Brnderslev Denmark and raised in Manne Mose, Tise Sgn, Hjrring, Danmark

Father: Willum/Villum Marthinus JENSEN, (son of Jens Srensen & Anne Simonsdatter)
Mother: Ane JENSEN born JENSDATTER

Children of Willum and Ane Jensen:
Jens Andreas Jensen, b. 06 Jan 1876,
Martinus Jensen b. 15 Jan 1879, (my great grandfather)
Ansine Othea JENSEN, b. abt 1884,
Johanne Jensen, b. 07 April 1886,
Per Gronborg Jensen, b. 20 Jul 1890,
Else Jensen, b. abt 1901
Karen Marie Jensen (no d.o.b.)
Carl (Karl) Jensen

Martin JENSEN immigrated to New Zealand where he met and married Tai Ngunguru Moana TIPENE (English translation of name is = Nguru Moana STEVENS) abt 1911. They had 13 children. My Grandmother (Moana Mary JENSEN) is their daughter.

They spoke of him with much love and admiration. My mother was very close to Martinus Jensen and spoke of his kind and gentle manner. The area where they settled in Aotearoa (New Zealand) is Wharekahika (Hicks Bay) and he was highly respected in the community.

My mother said he often spoke of his siblings and with much affection and she recalled many stories about his family, most residing around the Furreby area. We think he kept in contact with Jens Andreas, Ansine, Johanne and Per Gronborg.

Information suggests he immigrated to America along with his brother (not confirmed), he then travelled to Australia and from there to New Zealand. Martin JENSEN died at the family homestead in Wharekahika (Hicks Bay) NZ on 11 Oct 1948. He was mourned deeply.

Any information would be appreciated.

Kia ora RKH - thank you for your email - it's always a pleasure meeting more whanau and especially so close. My mother is Harata Te Moana daughter of Moana Mary Te Moana and she remembers her Aunty Punky (your nanny) fondly and with much aroha.... I have a research site on MyHeritage.com which I'm using to gather more information on our Danish rellies.... If you would like access to it just send me an email address and I'll send you a link. I'm just heading out now and will chat more later.

Take care
Max Simpson
