My wife is a descendant of Maren Rebecca Bruhn, youngest daughter of Jørgen Bruhn. We're interested in learning where around the globe the descendant's of Jørgen Bruhn live. My wife was born in Germany, but she and five other descendants from her immediate family now live in Michigan.

I am a descendant of Peter Bruhn of Denmark. His children (8) were all born in Saeby, Denmark, and five of the children came to the U.S. The ancestors of Peter are: Hans Christian Bruhn (father), Jurgen Bruhn (gr-father), Hans Bruhn (gr-gr-father)- who was married to Maren Rebecka Bargum. Does your family tree fit in with this?

Hello Melanie.

It is very possible that there is a connection. Do you have birth and death dates for the individuals that you list? The "Jurgen Bruhn (gr-father)" that you list could be my wife's 3rd great-grandfather. My wife's 2nd great-grandmother, Maren Rebecka Bruhn was the first daughter born to Jørgen Bruhn. We don't know his parent's information, but perhaps his mother was the Maren Rebecka Bargum that you list and he named his first daughter after his mother.

Melanie,

After reviewing the information you posted, I have the same doubts. I do not see the link between your known great grandfather Carl Christian Bruhn, and the Bruhn family down in Aabenraa. I searched Ancestry and FamilySearch and found nothing that would suggest a connection.

Good luck.

Chris

Hi,
Saw your post and checked the parish records for Sæby (Hjorring, Denmark) and found the birth record for Marie Bruhn, born July 13, 1887 to parents Anders Christian Bruhn and Maren Katherine Moller (age 39)

I looked for that family in the 1890 Danish census and found:
Anders Chr Pedersen Bruhn 46 Husfader
Maren Kathrine Bruhn 42 Husmoder
Rechardt Chr Bruhn 19 Søn
Julliete Christine Bruhn 14 Datter
Robert Bruhn 11 Søn
Halfdan Bruhn 9 Søn
Evald Bruhn 5 Søn
Marie Bruhn 2 Datter

I don't see Carl Christian on the census, but perhaps he was born after 1890? Or if he was over 14 in 1890 he would likely have been living in another household (learning a trade) If you have his birth year, let me know and I'll look for him in the Sæby parish records.

Wow! You are right on!!
Thank you so much for the information. This is the family I have been looking for - for about ten years. Would you be willing to search for more records in the Saeby parish records? Please email me at: philmel@knology.net
