Migrated to Australia in 1876 with his brother Herman. Worked on the property of Hon. B. Moreton at Gayndah. He later worked at Walkers in Maryborough and lost his right arm in an accident at work in 1896 and afterwards became an insurance agent. Letter from my mother suggests that he landed in Sydney and then headed north to Maryborough. Notes from Brian Hjelm - "I can't find Geising on my large scale map of Denmark. Some possible reasons - if Geising was a town or village, it no longer exists. Many small places disappeard following depopulation by emigration, changes in land use and tenure, and, in parts of Jylland, covered by sand, or abandoned for reafforestation or dune rehabilitation. Or perhaps it was a parish not a village. Danes until quite recently gave their parish as their birthplace. The parish had the legal responsibility to maintain BDM registers, even after centralised civil registration". " Sir Frank Nissen-Wils, the former Danish Consul in Brisbane, told me that in the 19th Century mass emigrations from Denmark, those who could afford to pay the fare went to America and the rest to Australia. This was a time of great upheavalsin Scandinavia and the Baltic regions, wars, revolts, religious schisms and persecution, border changes, oppression of minority language groups (Wends and Friesians particularly), changes in land tenure and usage all contributed to a mass exodus of the peoplesto the new world overseas. The potential to own land must have been a great temptation to immigrate as land in Denmark was virtually totally controlled by the King, the Church, and the 17 great noble families. The entire Danish Mormon community went to America, almost the entire Baptist community to America, Canada and Australia." 1905 Electoral Roll - Frederik and Elizabeth were living in Granville. Also 1913, Frederick was an agent. 1919 Electoral roll - Granville - Agent. (Geising is in the Ribe District between Ribe and Kolding, in the middle of Jutland).
