I was contacted through the Fresno County message board at Ancestry.com:
My father's paternal grandparents, Soren and Karen Marie Jensen, migrated to the Fresno area circa 1881. His paternal grandfather Jakob Feldvoss arrived there via Ellis Island in 1906 and was followed in the spring of 1907 by his newest wife Elisabeth, and daughter Anna, then in the fall of 1907 by his daughter Helene.
Soren's daughter (oldest child)Sena married Hans Larsen and they had three daughters, one of whom, Karen Marie, married Marko Pestorich and I believe many of the Pestorich family still reside in the Fresno area. Her brother Marius (the youngest and my grandfather) married Helene Feldvoss.
Neil Peter married Mary Stahl, but they were childless.
I am seeking any genealogical info I can get on any of these three families, so any help you are willing to give would be greatly appreciated. If you are of a mind to do so, I have a web page with some info:
And a public tree on Ancestry.com:
Soren and Karen's Family in America
Hi Jack! I have already found a little on your family. For instance, I learned from Marius Jensen's obituary, that his mother had been previously married to a man named NIELSEN, and had a half-brother:
You don't seem to indicate this half-brother on your family tree. If you have any information on him, I will be glad to see what I can find. Otherwise, I will stick to researching the names that are in your tree.
Thanks for contacting me. I will get back in touch with you very soon.
