Jensby Farm, where in Kansas?

Anyone remember the TOWN where the Jensby Farm was? (All I remember about Kansas was it was big and flat and boring...except for Jensby's of course!)

Jensby's farm

I wonder what ever happened to the Jensbys? In my memory, they were "old" but probably the same age as most of us are now! (50's early 60's) Anyone remember?

The internet is our friend. I looked them up, found one, and emailed him (all today). His response follows:

Mike, you must be one of the "New Yorkers" that came out each year on a bus and stayed with Uncle Clarence and Aunt Florence. Clarence and my Grandfather were brothers and my Grandpa lived just down the road from where you stayed, I grew up on a farm about 8 miles north just into Nebraska and my folks, each summer, would take us to visit when the "New Yorkers" were back, we would get a kick out of watching all of you play in the corn bin and paddle boat & fish in the ponds, or just do or be a part of things "we as farm kids" did every day.

Here's a little bit of our family history for you, all Jensby's in the United States are from one family which started with my Great Grandfather, Anton Jensby. Anton came from Denmark in the middle 1800's with another brother who died in his late teens and a sister who married but never had children. Anton's parents sent them on one ship with intensions of coming on the next ship, unfortunatly they were killed when the ship they were on sank. Anton was the oldest at only 15 years old, he ended up settling in this area about the time of Nebraska's statehood and became a large farmer and cattle feeder. The land he settled on has never been in any name outside the Jensby family and is still in the Jensby family. I am in the process buying it because I have a son (now 19 years old) to pass it on to, now I can only hope he too has a son someday in order to keep the name alive. Where there are so few of us the birth of a Jensby boy to carry on the name is cause for a family celebration! Anton married and raised 5 sons and 2 daughters. Two of those sons were uncle Clarence and my Grandpa Leslie, all but one son stayed in this area and became farmers. I don't farm however several members of the Jensby family are still in the area and continue to farm & ranch. Clerance has a son Jim Jensby he and his wife June live in the area of Belleville Kansas.

I hope this was helpful information, if I can answer any spacific questions you might have please feel free to contact me.

Thanks,
Kent Jensby

Jensbys

Wow! Impressive! I Googled them too and got some hits, but I didn't realize it was such an uncommon name, or that they were all related, otherwise I might have tried writing to one of them, myself.

That's a nice connection to the past and to people who we all "sort of" know as a part of our own history.

Thanks!

Jensby Farm

This is a great thread and should really be moved out of the Sunday forum and onto the regular forum, so no one who went to the Jensby Farm misses it.
