p. 1005 FRED D. MORCK... was born at Ossa, near Aalburg, Denmark, December 8, 1885, and his early training was chiefly in scientific agriculture.  His father, William Morck, and his mother, Emma Jacobson, were both born in that part of Denmark.  His father entered the merchandise business in 1863, and the following year left his store to join the Danish army in the war against Germany, at which time the rich and populous Province of Schleswig-Holstein was taken from Denmark and annexed to the German Empire.  In later years the youth of Denmark were always given frequent reminders of that loss of territory and assured that some day the province would be returned.  That prophecy is now being realized and fulfilled as a result of the new map of Europe following the World war.  William Morck after this war continued a successful merchant in Denmark and died in 1910, at the age of seventy-five.  In politics he always supported "the party of the left" in the Danish parliament.  He and his wife were both Lutherans.  His wife's father was Peter Jacobson, one of the wealthy mill men of Denmark and at one time a winner of a capital prize of $50,000 in a Government lottery.  Mrs. Emma Morck is still living in Denmark.  She was the mother of thirteen children and Fred D. is the only on in America.  The others are: Julius, a minister; Emil, of Aasa; Carl, a traveling salesman; Valdemar, of Odense; Gorm, a farmer near Odense; William, a customs officer at Copenhagen; Charles, a hardware dealer at Kolving; Matilda, housekeeper for her brother Julius; Carrie, wife of S. Husum of Aalburg; Thyra, wife of Alfred Jensen, of Odense; Mrs. Dagmar Heilskov, whose husband is a large farmer and dairyman near Gudumholm; and Mrs. Lillie Jensen, whose husband conducts a straw goods factory at Copenhagen...
