Born in Denmark on either 6 Mar 1859 or 23 Dec 1863 in Tryggelev, Denmark. His father was probably Jorgen Pedersen and his mother was Johanne Katrine Hansen. He married Bothilde Emilie Svendsen on 2 mar 1885 in Fodslette Parish and traveled to the US sometime in 1885. He lived in Denmark, Brown, Wisconsin. He had a son - Karl born in October 1885 in WI and another one - August Petersen born 12 Apr 1889 in New Denmark, Brown, WI.
related to him - Henrietta or Hendrette Hansen b. 28 Jan 1866 also in Tryggelev, Langeland, Denmark traveled to the us in June of 1913, but i'm unable to find any death or census record for her. She was a widow - and my great great grandmother. On the Ellis island manifest - she lists Hans C Peterson as her brother and her destination.
thanks for any help you can provide.
