yes, Claus went to America and died in 1949 in Olpe, Kansas. Documentation we found has somewhat conflicting stories. The obituary printed for him states that he was born June 28, 1869 in Swinhold City, Friderica County, Denmark. However, the birth record we found states that he was born in Assens, Odense, Denmark on January 31, 1869. The obituary names his mother as Marian Pederson and John Joergensen (which we know is Jorgen for the first name) but on the birth record it states Jorgen Jorgensen and Karen Pedersen.
It states that he came to America, arriving October 18, 1891 in Boston, Massachusetts. Move to Buffalo, NY and then to Saginaw, MI. Then settled in Emporia, KS then Olpe, KS.
When my mother and I looked for Swinhold, We couldn't find it. But we're not that familiar with that area at all. Most of our genealogy is found towards Great Britain. So anywhere outside of that, we're kind of clueless. Not sure if this information helps though.
