Peter Jensen AAGAARD (AUGARD)
 
215 His original name in Danish was apparently Jens Peder AAGAARD, after his grandfather. His name was listed as Jens on the ship's list from Hamburg, Germany. He immigrated to the U.S. (with his parents) in 1865, according to census and immigration records and also according to his wife's obituary. He and his parents came from Denmark to Utah, but stayed there only three years before moving to Nebraska in 1868. James lived and farmed in Nebraska for the remainder of his life. His name was listed as Jens AAGAARD on the ship's manifest from Hamburg in 1865, as James P. OGARD in the 1880, 1900, and 1910 censuses, as James Peter OGARD in the 1920 census, and as Joe P. OGARD in the 1930 census.

Following is a portion of a letter from Jean Duncan (6360 Ashwood St., Salt Lake City, UT 84121) to Nadine Keeley, 31 July 1995. Jean Duncan is a descendant of Anders Jensen (Andrew James) AAGARD born 15 Jan 1844 in Denmark, died 24 Dec 1925 in Fountain Green, Utah.
"While in Fountain Green last week a picture was shown to me. The information may help you. It was a picture of a teen-age girl. The picture was taken in Fremont, Nebraska. It has some writing on the back: 'This is our youngest daughter when she graduated. She is 13 years (old), her name is Mary Elizabeth Ogard.' No one is alive who can identify the picture.
"Jens Pedersen Aagard had some children by his other wives & some who came over later, but did not like Moroni. They supposedly went back to the mid-west. Mother told me that when or before her grandfather Andrew James (Anders Jensen) Aagard died, some cousins or friends (?) came out to visit from Iowa or Nebraska."

The 1900 census in Fremont, Dodge County, Nebraska shows Mary Elizabeth Ogard (born Feb 1894) who is mentioned in the above letter, and shows that this Ogard family had immigrated to the U.S. in 1865.

Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934 (Ancestry.com)
Year 1865, p. 100, ship "B.S. Kimball", captain H.C. Dearborn, left Hamburg May 8, 1865 for New York. Passengers included:
AAGAARD, A. J.; age 45; male
AAGAARD, Bodil (frau); age 35; female
AAGAARD, Jens; age 11; male
AAGAARD, Kirsten; age 5; female

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 (Ancestry.com):
The ship "B.S. Kimball", captain Henry C. Dearborn; from Hamburg, Germany, arrived in New York on June 15, 1865. Among the listed passengers were:
A. J. AAGAARD, age 45; male; occupation: Farmer; country of origin: Denmark; destination: United States
B. AAGAARD; age 35; female
J. AAGAARD; age 11; male
K. AAGAARD; age 5; male*

*mistakenly listed as male; but this was apparently Kirsten or "Kate" (female).

558 of the 727 passengers aboard this ship were Mormon converts from Scandinavia, bound for Utah. According to the book SHIPS, SAINTS, AND MARINERS by Conway B. Sonne, on 8 May 1865, Captain Dearborn sailed the B. S. Kimball from Hamburg with 558 Saints (Latter-day Saints) aboard. Most of the emigrants were from Scandinavia. The company was directed by Elder Anders W. Winberg, his counselors John Swensen and Hans C. Hogsted. The voyage was tragic, measles and scarlet fever breaking out at sea. Three adults and twenty-five children died, one of the highest death tolls of any (Mormon) emigrant company. After a thirty-seven day passage the ship arrived at New York on 14 June 1865.
See http://heritage.uen.org/companies/Wc89d833608c52.htm for a detailed account of the journey of these 1865 Mormon converts from Copenhagen, Denmark to Hamburg Germany to New York, then of the emigrants' overland trek from New York to Utah.
The fact that they immigrated as part of an organized Mormon "company" seems to indicate that Anders Jensen AAGAARD (OGARD) and family were Mormon converts. Apparently they later left the Church when they moved back to Nebraska. According to "Mormon Influence on Scandinavian Settlement in Nebraska" at http://www.xmission.com/~nelsonb/nebraska.htm, the majority of Scandinavians who settled in Nebraska had at one time been associated with the Mormon church.

His death certificate may be obtained (see http://www.hhs.state.ne.us/ced/decert.htm). It would probably give his parents' names including his mother's maiden name. 
Jens Peder (James Peter) AAGAARD (OGARD)
 
216 In Denmark her original name was Kirsten AAGAARD (see ship's passenger list from Hamburg). She went by the name Kate after coming to America. The 1870 census shows her first name as Kate. Her mother's obituary lists her only as "Mrs. A.P. Peterson." Her marriage date was obtained from a Lincoln, Nebraska newspaper article on the occasion of her 50th wedding anniversary, stating that she and her brother James had had a double wedding. They were both married on 4 June 1880 near Fremont, Nebraska according to this newspaper article from 1930:
"ANNIVERSARY OF DOUBLE WEDDING IS CELEBRATED
(Special to The Star.)
FREMONT, Neb., June 4--Celebration with a dinner party at Hotel Pathfinder last night of the fiftieth anniversary of a double wedding, was an interesting event. Twenty intimate friends of the two couples were present. The principals were Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Peterson, Fremont, and Mr. and Mrs. James P. Ogard of Nickerson. They were married near Fremont, the ceremony taking place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Anderson, parents of Mrs. Ogard. Mr. Ogard and Mrs. Peterson are brother and sister."
THE LINCOLN STAR (Lincoln, Nebraska newspaper), Wednesday, June 11, 1930

36 COUPLES CELEBRATE 50 OR MORE YEARS OF MARRIED LIFE IN JUNE
...."Included in the list of those who observed their golden anniversaries, was Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Peterson of Fremont, and Mr. and Mrs. James P. Ogard of Nickerson. The anniversary was celebrated June 4th in Fremont, and was a repetition of that of fifty years ago when the two couples were married in a double ceremony in Fremont at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Anderson."
THE LINCOLN STAR (Lincoln, Nebraska newspaper), Sunday, July 13, 1930

Cemetery records show that Kate (Ogard) Peterson was born in 1859, and died in 1953. The 1900 census lists her birth as Dec 1859 in Denmark.

Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934 (Ancestry.com)
Year 1865, p. 100, ship "B.S. Kimball", captain H.C. Dearborn, left Hamburg May 8, 1865 for New York. Passengers included:
AAGAARD, A. J.; age 45; male
AAGAARD, Bodil (frau); age 35; female
AAGAARD, Jens; age 11; male
AAGAARD, Kirsten; age 5; female

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 (Ancestry.com):
The ship "B.S. Kimball", captain Henry C. Dearborn; from Hamburg, Germany, arrived in New York on June 15, 1865. Among the listed passengers were:
A. J. AAGAARD, age 45; male; occupation: Farmer; country of origin: Denmark; destination: United States
B. AAGAARD; age 35; female
J. AAGAARD; age 11; male
K. AAGAARD; age 5; male*

*mistakenly listed as male; but this was apparently Kirsten or "Kate" (female).

558 of the 727 passengers aboard this ship were Mormon converts from Scandinavia, bound for Utah. According to the book SHIPS, SAINTS, AND MARINERS by Conway B. Sonne, on 8 May 1865, Captain Dearborn sailed the B. S. Kimball from Hamburg with 558 Saints (Latter-day Saints) aboard. Most of the emigrants were from Scandinavia. The company was directed by Elder Anders W. Winberg, his counselors John Swensen and Hans C. Hogsted. The voyage was tragic, measles and scarlet fever breaking out at sea. Three adults and twenty-five children died, one of the highest death tolls of any (Mormon) emigrant company. After a thirty-seven day passage the ship arrived at New York on 14 June 1865.
See http://heritage.uen.org/companies/Wc89d833608c52.htm for a detailed account of the journey of these 1865 Mormon converts from Copenhagen, Denmark to Hamburg Germany to New York, and of the emigrants' overland trek from New York to Utah.
The fact that they immigrated as part of an organized Mormon "company" seems to indicate that Anders Jensen AAGAARD (OGARD) and family were Mormon converts. Apparently they later left the Church when they moved back to Nebraska. See also "Mormon Influence on Scandinavian Settlement in Nebraska", at http://www.xmission.com/~nelsonb/nebraska.htm

Kirsten (Kate) AAGAARD (OGARD)
 
217 He immigrated to the U.S. in 1884 and settled near his uncle Andrew J. Ogard's family. Married in 1891. He was a nephew to Andrew Jensen OGARD of Dodge County, Nebraska, because Thomas' father Peder Jensen AAGAARD (1823-1867) was a half-brother of Andrew Jensen OGARD (1820-1877).

Social Security Death Index 
Andeen Aagard
 
219 Anders Jensen AAGAARD was born in 1820 in Denmark. In America he was later known as Andrew J. OGARD.
(his birthdate was 2 Sep 1820 according to his gravestone in Dodge County, Nebraska, but 3 Sep 1820 in Farre, Spørup, Skanderbørg, Denmark according to a family group record in possession of Nadine Aagard Keeley. I'm not certain which date is correct. His gravestone may have been difficult to read, or may have been transcribed incorrectly).
His mother, Kirsten, died 26 Jan 1822 in Spørup, Skanderbørg, Denmark.
His father, Jens Pedersen AAGARD, remarried 3 times, later joined the LDS Church in 1858, and immigrated to Utah in 1860.

Anders Jensen AAGAARD (Andrew Jensen OGARD), oldest son of Jens Pedersen AAGARD, was probably raised by his mother's relatives after her death. He may not have had much contact with his father, since two of Jens' sons by a later wife were given this same name (the second Anders Jensen Aagaard was born in 1829 but died in 1837, after which Jens' youngest son, born in 1844, was also given the name Anders Jensen Aagaard).

We have discovered that Jens' oldest son, Anders (Andrew) Jensen Aagaard, born 2 or 3 Sep 1820 in Denmark, immigrated with his wife and children to America in 1865. He initially came to Utah and stayed for a few years but didn't like it there, so went back to the U.S. midwest (Dodge County, Nebraska) in 1868 where he settled and lived for the remainder of his life. He died 28 Aug 1877 near Fremont, Dodge County, Nebraska. He, his wife and one of their sons are buried in Bluffs Cemetery, Maple Township, Dodge County, Nebraska. Birth and death dates were obtained from their gravestones (see records for him, his wife, and three children. His wife's obituary includes the information that they immigrated from Denmark in 1865, and went to Utah for a few years before settling near Fremont, Nebraska in 1868).
A Thomas OGARD immigrated to America in 1884 at age 16 or 17 and settled in the same area of Nebraska (found in census records, immigration year listed as 1884). We have determined that he was a nephew to Andrew J. Ogard (son of Andrew's half-brother, Peder Jensen AAGAARD). Descendants of Thomas Ogard are also included in this file.

=============================================

The surname AAGAARD (ÅGÅRD in today's Danish) was spelled several different ways by various immigrants of that name who came to America,, including AAGAARD, AAGARD, OGARD, OGAR, and OGAARD. In 1948 a new letter was introduced into the Danish alphabet, Å (A with a small O above it), but in old Danish this vowel was spelled AA (double A) and is often still spelled that way today. According to a Danish pronunciation guide, the vowel å (aa) has two different pronunciations: "like o in old", or "like au in caught." In Danish the consonant "d" is usually pronounced as it is in English, except when falling between vowels or at the end of a word it is pronounced as "th", and when coming after "R" or adjacent to certain other consonants it is usually silent (see http://dkheadlines.com/learndanish.htm#pron). So the correct pronunciation of AAGAARD in Danish is more like OGAR.

According to the biography of Jens Pedersen AAGARD:
"His family owned land near the river as evidenced by the name 'Aagaard'. Because so many people had the same names in Denmark, there was a need to have an identifier such as location, profession, etc. 'AA' in Danish means stream, and 'Gard' means tract of land, thus 'Aagaard' means river farm.
"The name was originally spelled Aagaard, and had been in the family for generations. It was originally pronounced 'Ogar'. When the family first came to Utah they spelled it like the Danish pronunciation 'Ogar'. The family in Utah later decided to keep the Danish spelling but did drop one of the A's in GAARD making it Aagard.
.........."Perhaps some of (Jens') older children did come later to America. A family story tells of them not liking pioneer life in Moroni. They had been impressed with the middle west and went back and settled in the Nebraska and Iowa area.
"Olean Allred told of her mother's brother (Jens' grandson), James Olsen, who made a trip to the mid-west in 1951. He had obtained an address from Idena Jensen Crowther of these Aagard cousins. Idena (granddaughter of Andrew Jensen AAGARD of Utah) had contacted them while she was on her mission in that area.
"Olean tells of helping her grandmother (Ellen Kjerstene AAGARD OLSEN) write letters to her half-sisters (or cousins?) back in the mid-west."
(biography of Jens Pedersen Aagard, p. 1 and p. 4-5)

WOTEN, Everett (boarder); white; male; born June 1876; age 23; single; birthplace: Iowa; father's birthplace: New York; mother's birthplace: Wisconsin; occupation: School Teacher

*this census says that Elizabeth had borne 4 children, all 4 still living; however, only 3 children were living in the household. Either one child had died young, or she had only 3 children.....it's not likely that a child under age 14 would have already married or left home.
