Who was Carl Johansen? [closed]

+2 votes
Does anyone have suggestions in how to find who Carl Johansen was? I have added all I know to his profile. He emigrated to Finland from Denmark sometime around 1906 after having had a baby with 17 year old Anna Carlsen whom he never married.

Was he also young at the time?

Is it possible he intended to marry her but was not allowed by the parish priest?

Who is his Finnish family, who later contacted his Danish son's family?

I have checked the 1906 census for Kirke Saaby where he was supposed to have been living in 1905 as well as the birth records for this parish around 1888 and Kirke Hvalsoe where Anna was from, no luck, unless I missed him. He was either born somewhere else or he was older than Anna. At first it was believed that he was Finnish but it was later established by the family as well as the few sources there is that he is likely Danish.

Wow that's definitely a very close match, I guess if I research this guy it might say if he went to Finland. I was worried he was from an unknown parish and moved to Såby later on. Thank you so much for this lead!
Also.. I left you some research on your ancestor Thil Möller, was thinking to myself if you have ancestors from Harlösa maybe were cousins.. and there he was, born in Harlösa..although way back when.. Check it out: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Möller-1801
I knew about Anna Lundhök and Sven Möller - just haven't added them to my tree yet. Regarding Anna's father Anders,  I see a birth record for Anders Trulsson and he is also referred by that name in his marriage record.  Where did the name Lundhök come from?
100 years later I respond. How do you mean, where the name originate or in what source I found it?
I see an Anders born to Truls Olson in March 1693 in Lund,  but he would be Anders Trulsson. Where do you see that Anders Trulsson and Anders  Lundhök are the same person?
Off topic a bit, but you are right, I can not see a single source with her surname mentioned. However she has a brother with the same surname, maybe he gives some clues to where the name comes from. Did only the brother take the name and the siblings might only have been known by the patronym? There was a lot of girls in the family, they didn't always go by the taken name of their father, if he indeed took the name Lundhök. If that is true you can kinda see why Lund is part of their name, since the family came from Lund. Sadly female family members were not always referred to in records by their full name, in her death record it only says Anna widow of Möller.
I did find a daughter Gertrud born 30 Dec 1715 to Anders Trulsson and Karen Waltersdotter. Later she is listed as Gertrud Lundhök.

Have you also looked for Karl Johansen? - Carl/Karl is the same name at that time.

I’ve looked for anything that’a remotely close to his name, but it’s just such a common name and so little details about him in regards to his son.
