Thank you!  He had a son Conrad Waltermere Nielsen (born 1861) that emigrated to America with his wife Petra (born 1865) .They went to America to work the  Salvation Army. They had my great grandfather Emmanuel Waltermere Nielsen, Born 1892 in Denmark. They arrived in America in 1893.
My Great Grandfather was Conrad Waltermere Neilsen and my Great Grandmother was Petra Neilsen.
Emmanuel had an older sister Deborah Ruth Neilsen born in 1889.  She was my paternal grandmother.

Another sister, Ester was born after immigrating to the US in 1893.
One is likely my Great Great Grand Father.  Not sure which one, or if another with that name.

In the 1890 Danish Census Conrad Waldemar Nielsen was an adjutant in the Salvation Army living in the city Odense with his wife Petra Jørgine and infant daughter Deborah Ruth. The family had a servant Henriette Sophie Andersen. Kadet Hans Kristian Nielsen might be a brother to Conrad.

Conrad Waldemar Nielsen was born February 3rd, 1860, and baptized Thursday, May 17th  in Vor Frue, Copenhagen. The parents were mason Ernst Peder  Nielsen and his wife Ane Jensen living in Pederstræde No 46.

Great info.  Thank you!!!

Family lore says Conrad's Neilsen was a cousin of the King of Denmark but disavowed because he married a commoner.

Looking for info on if this is true.
