Individual Note

Poul was traveling in steerage, 21, single, a laborer, Danish, his last permanent address was Hov, Denmark, his father was Christen Poulsen of Hov per Thisted. His final destination was Auburn, Massachusetts, and he had a ticket to get there, he had paid for the passage himself, he had $25 with him, he had not previously been in the United States, he was going to join his uncle S.L. Salmonsen at R.F.D., Auburn, Massachusetts, and he was born in Lonnerup, Denmark.

Poul was 25, single, farm laborer, Danish, his last permanent address was Worcester, Massachusetts, his father was Christen Poulsen of Hov per Thisted, and he was a non-immigrant resident alien. His final destination was Millbury, Massachusetts, and he had a ticket to get there, he had paid for the passage himself, he had $25 with him, he had previously been in the United States from 1913 to 1916 at Worcester, Massachusetts, and he was going to join his uncle S.L. Salmonsen (the husband of his aunt Nikoline Poulsen) at Millbury, Massachusetts.


As noted above, Poul gave a permanent U. S. address of Worcester, Massachusetts and said that he had been there from 1913 to 1916, and Ingeman listed his U.S. address as Saratoga, Howard County, Iowa and said that he had been there from 1913 to 1916. This is rather confusing, because it was Poul who is listed in the 1915 Iowa State census and Ingeman who is listed in the 1914 and 15 Worcester City Directories, working as a carpenter. Perhaps it was a clerical error in the passenger list? In 1917, Poul would register for the WWI draft in Iowa, and Ingeman would register in Worcester, Massachusetts. I don't understand these apparent discrepancies.


Poul Kristian Poulsen emigrated circa 1920 from Iowa back to Denmark. He appeared in the 1920 U.S. Census at Chester, Howard County, Iowa. He appeared in the census of 1 Feb 1921 in the household of his widowed mother Ane Kristine Poulsen at Sennels (Parish), Hillerslev (District), Thisted (County), Denmark.
