1900 census of Atlantic, Cass County, Iowa:

Peter Christensen 60
Elsie Christensen 59
Nelson Christensen 34
Mary Christensen 30
Christian Christensen 29
Anna Christensen 26
Lars Christensen 20

Their Find a Grave memorials in Atlantic Cemetery list Elsie's birthdate as 11 Dec 1840 and Peter's as 21 November 1839.

This transcribed 1870 Thisted census fits Peter, Elsie, and son "Nelson":

Thisted, Hundborg, Thisted Købstad, Nørregade, , Huus nr. 259, Forhuus, 477, FT-1870
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Peder Christian Christensen 30 Gift Huusfader Snedker Sennels, Thisted Amt
Else Pedersen 29 Gift Huusmoder Væverske Elsted, Thisted Amt
Ane Marie Christensen 3 Ugift Datter Aarup, Thisted Amt
Niels Christian Christensen 1 Ugift Søn Aarup, Thisted Amt

Danish Online Archives show a Peder Christian Christensen born 22 Nov 1839, parents Christen Olsen and Ingeborg Pedersdatter (Thisted, Sennels, opslag 3 nr. 11)

Snedsted parish, Thisted: Else Pedersen born 11 December 1840, parents Peder Clemensen and Christiane Larsen of Elsted (Snedsted opslag 71 nr 19)

Here is the family in Feb 1840 before Else's birth, but both parents are shown as widows, which I've never seen before!

Thisted, Hassing, Snedsted, Elsted By, , et Huus, 86, FT-1840
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Peder Clemensen 36 Enkemand Smed
Christiane Larsdatter 35 Enke Huusholderske
Cleme Pedersen 8 Ugift deres Børn
Ingeborg Pedersen 7 Ugift deres Børn
Niels Pedersen 2 Ugift deres Børn

And here is the family in 1845, her father missing and mother again listed as a widow:

Thisted, Hassing, Snedsted, Elsted By, , et Huus, 27 F1, FT-1845
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Christiane Larsdatter 40 Enke Væverske Tømmerby Sogn, Thisted Amt
Clara ?? Pedersen 13 Ugift hendes Børn Her i Sognet [Snedsted Sogn, Thisted Amt]
Ingeborg Pedersen 12 Ugift hendes Børn Do [Snedsted Sogn, Thisted Amt]
Niels Pedersen 7 Ugift hendes Børn Do [Snedsted Sogn, Thisted Amt]
Else Pedersen 5 Ugift hendes Børn Do [Snedsted Sogn, Thisted Amt]

I don't find death of Peder Clemensen 1840-1845 in Snedsted.
