This page and this Borglum family has nothing to do with Gutzon Borglum, his brother Solon Borglum, or his son Lincoln Borglum, the famous artists and stonemasons that carved the faces of presidents on Mt. Rushmore (to be more accurate; we think our Borglum line is unrelated to his). To go to links for Gutzon or Lincoln Borglum, click here or here    or here in Danish. To go to links about Solon Borglum, click here or here or here. To the best of our knowledge, both our families originated in Borglum, Denmark, and we are not related, since their "Borglum" name goes back to at least 1784. Our ancestor Anders Gregers Larsen adopted the name of the town of Borglum, Denmark -his birthplace- on August 17, 1905.

Prior to that our "surnames" included Moller, Sorensen, Elkidsdatter, Ravnskov, Pedersdatter, and Eriksen.

(LCB10)X Tenus Borglum b1891 d 4.8.1982  and Gerda Jensen b11.22.1891 d 2.23.1974 . (note: Birth name was Tinus. He didn't like the way Tinus was pronounced in English and changed it to Tenus. Tinus means "tenth male" in Danish and Latin. With Tenus and his younger brother Dusinus "twelveth", a pattern of numbering the kids started. Anders' second wife, whome he married after Maren's death, apparently ended the trend of numbering kids. Tenus lived his last years with daughter Ardis.)

1974 Tenus interviewed by Carsten transcription    here's the actual 1974 recording. Its 25MB so you might want to download it prior to playing.
Penn Yan farm ,Gerda's family tree, including Mia Christensen, as related by Eva Sorensen. Tenus came to Minnesota from Denmark in 1911 and first lived and farmed in Minnesota. He moved his family to NY in 1928, where he farmed until he retired. He lived his final years with Ardis. Family lore has it that Tenus had a heart attack at home, drove himself to the hospital, and stopped to free a neighbor's cow from barbed wire along the way.

The "Borglum cough". I remember Tenus always clearing his throat. I hear that Pop and the uncles' wives have sent them to doctors for it. I have it, as do my brothers. Its a regular clearing of the throat. I think its a genetic mucosal sinus defect, maybe.
