Who is Annette Catherine Madsen's Father?

Posted: 1480553333000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Madsen, Henriksen, Rasmussen, Nielsen, Johansdatter
Annette was born on 16 July 1857 in Sollested, Maribo, Denmark to Maren Johanne Carol MADSDATTER. Maren is unmarried at this time. Maren’s parents are Mads NIELSEN and Anne Dorthea JOHANSDATTER. Maren married Niels RASMUSSEN on 12 August 1860 in Sollested. Annette switched between the MADSEN and NIELSEN surnames. Annette’s birth record can be viewed at:
This is a difficult record to read. It is possible that Annette’s father was listed as Andreas Jensen on the above document. Feel free to reply with how you read the father’s name.

Annette married Lars Henrik Henriksen on 27 November 1880 in Nakskov, Maribo, Denmark. She and her family immigrated to Wisconsin and settled in Mastadon, Iron, Michigan in the United States. She claimed a John JOHNSON of Iron County, Michigan was her brother but I haven’t been able to prove this connection. Annette and John are neighbors in this Mastodon, Iron, Michigan 1930 Census:
A Johan JOHANSEN’s birth records is: The parents are listed as Ane Kirstine JOHANSDATTER and the alleged father is Jens RASMUSSEN.
In the 1860 Denmark Census, it lists both Annette and Johan in the same household with Maren’s parents (Mads NIELSEN and Ane Dorte JOHANSDATTER). It looks like they may have been cousins.
Thanks, in advance for any help.
There is another of my queries in the Denmark Board with the ongoing discussion:
