Looking For Martin JENSEN (Martinus Willemus JENSEN) born abt 1879 in Manna, Thise, Hjorring, Borglum, Denmark.
I am seeking information on Martinus Willumus JENSEN who was born 15 Jan 1879 in Thise, Hjorring, Borglum, Denmark.
Martin's Father: Willum Marthinus JENSEN, (son of Jens Sorensen & Anne Sorensen born Simonsdatter)
Martin's Mother: Ane Jensen born Jensdatter.
Martin's Siblings are:
F: Jens Andreas Jensen, b. 06 Jan 1876,
M: Martinus Jensen b. 15 Jan 1879, (my great grandfather)
F: Ansine Othea JENSEN, b. abt 1884,
F: Johanne Jensen, b. 07 April 1886,
M: Per Gronborg Jensen, b. 20 Jul 1890,
F: Else Jensen, b. abt 1901
F: Karen Marie Jensen (no d.o.b.)
M: Carl Jensen (no d.o.b.)
Martin JENSEN immigrated to New Zealand where he met and married my Great Grandmother Tai Ngunguru Moana TIPENE (English translation = Nguru Moana STEVENS) abt 1900. They had 13 children. My Grandmother (Moana Mary JENSEN) is his daughter and my mother (Charlotte) is his grand-daughter.
They spoke of him with much love and admiration. She said he had a kind gentle manner and where they settled in Aotearoa (New Zealand) he was highly respected and regarded in the community and was dearly loved by his family. He spoke of his siblings with much affection and recalled many stories about them. We think he kept in contact with Jens, 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.
