Your info is correct, born 15 Aug 1856, christened 30 August, parents Jens Jensen *Nødgaard and Kirsten Pedersdatter, Biersted parish, Aalborg.

His young mother died 8 Sep 1857 age 24, and here is Jens and his widowed father in 1860:

Aalborg, Kær, Biersted, Biersted, Biersted Skoledistrikt, , en Gaard, 99, FT-1860
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Jens Jensen 27 Enkemand Husfader Vrendsted Sogn, Hjørring Amt
Christen Jensen 3 Ugift hans Søn Biersted Sogn, Aalborg Amt
Mads Christensen 16 Ugift Tjenestefolk Biersted Sogn, Aalborg Amt
Dorthe Frederiksen 34 Ugift Tjenestefolk Aalborg
Nicolai Nielsen 14 Ugift Tjenestefolk Biersted Sogn, Aalborg Amt
Margrethe Jensdatter 60 Enke forsørges af Husfaderen Vrendsted Sogn, Hjørring Amt

*Because the old patronymic naming custom created so many with the same full names, another name was sometimes added to identify which of the local Jens Jensen's (etc) an individual was.

The maps show Nødgaard as a farm or district near southeast corner of Biersted.

Here is Christen in 1870, listed as a foster child of widow Margrethe Jensdatter (perhaps his grandmother?), who was in the household 1860:

Aalborg, Kær, Biersted, Biersted distrikt, , Nødgaard, 135, Ft 1870
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Margrethe Jensdatter 71 enke Aftægtskone [Aftægtskone] Vrensted Sogn, Hjørring Amt.
Christen Jensen 13 ugift Pleiesøn [Pleiesøn] Biersted Sogn, Aalborg Amt.
