I am looking for the ancestor's of Herman L. Jensen (b.1869, d. 1937) who at age 21 immigrated from Denmark to the USA. He arrived in New York City, NY, in 1890. He was involved in the Alsakan Gold Rush, moved to another state (I"m not sure where) where he met and married Julia Ann Place. Their only child was my great-grandpa, Clair Luther Jensen. Herman Jensen's naturalization papers are in possession of my family as are the obituaries of all three family members.
I would appreciate any and all help with my research, so I can verify his birthdate and parentage. I would very much like to go as far back as I can.
My Sutter's came from either Hannover, Germany or the Netherlands. As far as I know the family ultimately settled in Wisconsin. I do not know where they might have landed, but I'm guessing either California or New York would be possibilities. They came to the United States in
John Zutter was born in 1836 in Holland or Germany, married before 1870 to a lady who's name is Jacoba or Jacoby, and died in 1921. He nad his wife had at least 6 children, their oldest, Peter, having been born in 1870 in whichever country (Holland according to the 1880 USA census). The rest of the children, Heinrich (1871), Jane (1874), Adriana (1875), Cornelia "Nellie" (1878)*, and Jacob (1879) were born in Dubuque, Iowa.
*Nellie Sutter married Henry John Soule(i)n, also of Holland. They had two children, Ruth Nellie Soulen and Roger John Henry Soulen. Both married and had children who are still living. Both Nellie Soulen Jensen (married Clair Luther Jensen**) and Roger "Uncle Bud" Soulen (married Lousie Henrietta Howe)have since returned to their eternal homes.

I have lots of research on the Sutter/Soulin families but am always looking for additional information to confirm my findings. In addition, I am searching for their European roots and to see how far back I can travel.
Oringially from Ireland, the Bunting family immigrated to Cherry Valley, New York, United States. In the 1770's some of the family moved to Orange County, Ontario, Canada. Returning to the United States, the family settled in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and in Oakland County, Michigan. At some point, one of the Bunting ancestor's married a Dod(d)s of Scotland. One of the Dodds' ladies, in turn, went as far as marrying George Britton McClellan who served as a general in the United States Civil War!
This section of my research is quite large, and I would love to share with whomever would be interested. I have solid resources to back up most of my research.
The brick wall that needs to be busted is within the first two generations that immigrated to the United States from Ireland. There is no connecting link between them and the rest of us. There is also no solid information as to where in Ireland the family is from. Any and all infomration would be appreciated.
