    Jens Poulsen Grosboel, went to USA to visit his (half)brothers Peter, Martin and Jeppe.He was 16 years old. He returned to Denmark 4 years later because of an infection in the leg. He had a stiff leg for the rest of his life.
    According to my mother he always spoke of FOUR brothers in America. He talked a lot about Johannes Grosboll and when he had a nightmare he called out for Johannes to help him !
    Johannes may have been called John (??) in America.
    (I have found out that Johannes Grossbøll sailed for Petersburg, IL 1887 25 years old. This means that he probably is born in 1862.
    In 1896 a Joh. Graasbøl, farmer, age 34 living in Petersburg USA accompanies a Petra Kristine Graasbøl 17 years old (born 1879 ?) from Slesvig to Petersburg. I guess it is the same Johannes my grandfather always talked about in both cases ?!
    The different spellings of the name is not significant - I think.)
    It looks as if we have found Johannes ! - He is my grandfather's cousin Johannes (John) Petersen Graasbøll born Nov 4th 1861. The mystery, why my grandfather always spoke of four brothers in USA, still remains. He must have spoken figuratively ?
