    Notes 
    • Knud Knudsen was born at Lundgaards Mark, Gammelstrup sogn, Viborg Amt, on a small farm situated in the centre of Jutland owned by his mother's family since the early 19th century.
      Knud's father, Peder Kristian Knudsen worked as a gardener on the nearby manor (Lundgaard) before he married Mariane Christiansen. After the marriage, Peder Kristian and Mariane took over the farm from her parents.
      Later on, Peder Kristian established his own nursery-garden and had his own stand on the market in Viborg.
      Their oldest child, Knud went to grammar-school in Viborg, and studied afterwards in Copenhagen to become a priest. He had not yet finished his studies when his father died in 1917. His mother continued running the farm and the nursery, which Knud's brother Kristian eventually took over when she died 1928.
      It was said that Knud as a young man wanted to become a missionary, but changed his mind when he met Mary.
      From entries in the church registers for the two parishes of Ørting and Falling in eastern Jutland, it can be seen that Knud was the vicar there from 1922 to 1954, the rectory being situated in Ørting.
      He attended to a funeral in Ørting on February 23rd 1922 and a christening in Falling church on March 3rd 1922, i.e. before he married Mary on April 29th 1922.
      On April 7th 1955 he baptized a little girl, daughter of friends, in Ørting church as pastor emeritus.
      From Ørting, Knud and Mary moved to Marselisvej 18 in Aarhus, and it is possible that they first stayed some months with their son, Peder who was living in Ghana at the time.
      The house in Aarhus was fairly big and they always had a maid staying in the house for cleaning and cooking. [1]
