  • Notes 

    • (Information fom Clara Rix & the LDS International Genealogical Index; Family Group sheet completed by unknown person~probably Ray Rix; Tulstrup Parish Record Book; Danish Censuses) (e-mail from Hanne Rix 3 Aug 2007).

      Aunt Clara spelled Hans' middle name "JORDAN". The other spelling is from the LDS IGI and sounds more like a Danish name. It is also possible that it was actually spelled Jørgan or Jürge [1860 Census of Denmark shows a "Hans Jørgen RIX" born ca 1846 living in Fruering Parish in the County of Skanderborg. He was employed as a "farmer's boy"].
      Rix is NOT a common name, and most of the information I have found on Rix's show them coming from Germany. Perhaps the family originated in the Schleswig/ Holstein area and Elaine's ancestors elected to remain in Denmark after that area was annexed by Prussia.
      *************************************************
      An old Family Group sheet shows Hans' birthplace as Germany.
      He was born 24 February, 1846, in an unidentified part of Germany.
      Hans married Dorothea Marie Nielsen on 24 February, 1866, in Tulstrup Parish, Gjern, Skanderborg, Denmark. Their first child was born in Javnsgyde, Skanderborg, Denmark, after which they apparently moved to Laasby, Aarhus, Denmark.
      He died in Losbry (?) [probably Laasby/Låsby], Denmark in 1922.
      *********************************
      Hans Jørgen Rix was working as a "farm boy" for the Rasmus Nielsen family in Fruering, Skanderborg at the time of the 1860 Danish Census.
      He married Dorothea Marie Nielsen in Tulstrup Church, Gjern, Skanderborg, Denmark, on 24 February, 1866.

    • [Tulstrup, Gjern, Skanderborg, Denmark Kirkebøger 1848~1869]

      Hans Jørgen Rix was lving/working in Hørning, Skanderborg, Denmark when he met his wife, Dorthea Marie Nielsen who was also living/working in Hørning at the time. They both moved back to Dorthea's hometown on 20 January, 1866, about a month before their wedding. They had their first child on their wedding day, 24 February 1866!!!
      Hans and Dorothea lived in Dorthea's hometown of Jaungyde for about half a year until 19 October 1866 when they moved to Flensted, Låsby, Aarhus.
