  • Notes 

    • [from Clara [Rix] Haney (?)] & [LDS Pedigree Chart]


      Anna Kristine Jensen was born in Svindborg, Ørum, Thisted, Denmark, on 15 April, 1887.
      As a teenager a doctor offered her an opportunity to study nursing, but her father refused to let her go to school because he needed her labor on his farm. Anna is said to have received a loan from an uncle in the United States so that she could "run away from home" and emigrate to the USA.
      A 17 years 10 month old Anna Jensen arrived in New york aboard the SS Oscar II from Copenhagen on 7 March, 1905. Her occupation was listed as servant. Her former residence was Aarhus, Denmark.
      Her destination was shown as Volga, South Dakota, where her uncle, Karl Josepson lived. She had a paid ticket to Volga, and may have had $35 in her possession (although it was crossed out on the immigration form).
      Anna may or may not have gone to Volga, but she eventually ended up working as a maid for a wealthy family in Fremont, Nebraska . There she met Søren Peter Rix and they were married in 1908.

      [later census information suggests that the Anna Jensen who arrived aboard the SS Oscar was not our Anna].

    • Anna died in a nursing home, probably at the Genoa Community Hospital in Genoa, Nebraska which is located about 60 miles west of Fremont.


    • According to the 1920 US Census, Anna Rix was naturalized in 1912. Her husband, Soren Peter Rix, also reported being naturalized in 1912.

      My Aunt Harriet had told my mom that when she worked on the family genealogy she discovered that Anna was an illegitimate child??
