Posted on Jan-17-2018 by RICH BENTLEY
Kirsten Mikkelsen was my great grandmother. After extensive research, I have to conclude that she was only married three times; first to my great randfather, Jørgen Nissen Skau/Skow in Denmark 4 Nov 1862, second to John Peterson in Iowa 6 Apr 1881, and third to Karsten Brodersen in Iowa 30 Mar 1899. How the Hansen name appears on the marker in the family plot is a mystery to me.
