Am looking for info on Clausen family in Denison 1882-1906.
Fredrick Clausen Jr. immigrated to Iowa from Schlesweg-Holstein, Grm. ca
1882, married Margaretha Gradert, also from Sclesweg in Mar 1885 in Crawford
County. Five children were born in Denisen.
According to the 1900 census, his brother Asmus also farmed in Denisen with
They were joined in 1885 by their parents: Frederick R. Clausen b. 1829 in
Jacobsen Clausen b. 1821 in Schlesweg and died in Denisen July of 1895
She is buried in Zion Lutheran Cemetery in Denisen and about 1906
the family of Fred Jr. relocated to So. Dak.
Have not found death of Fred Sr. b.1829 in So. Dak. and think he may have
died in Iowa.
Any help will be appreciated,
