Interesting story – this is really an old thread:-)

There are two databases covering the former Danish colony St. Croix. The “Danish Demographic Database” and the one found at “virgin islands roots” http://stx.visharoots.org/

The only person that matches at least partly is a Jens Peter Aastrup. Here is what I found:
On St Croix 1855 census (from visharoots):

Not very interesting – but let’s have a look at the 1860 census:

If this is the Jens Peter you are looking for then he was born ca. 1829. He can be found in the Danish 1840 census

København, København (Staden), Sankt Annæ Vester Kvarter, Borgergade, Huuset nr. 176, 2. Sal, 173 F5, FT-1840, C5130
Navn: Alder: Civilstand: Stilling i husstanden: Erhverv: Fødested:
Søren Andersen Jeberg 32 Gift Arbeidsmand
Maren Jeberg født Pedersdatter 38 Gift hans Kone
Jens Peter Aastrup 10 Ugift deres Søn

(Judging from the names Søren Andersen is his stepfather.)

And in 1845:
København, København (Staden), Rosenborg Kvarter, Myntergade No. 42, 2den Sal, 284, FT-1845, C3146
Navn: Alder: Civilstand: Stilling i husstanden: Erhverv: Fødested:
Carl Julius Nielsen 32 Gift Malermester Kiøbh.
Sophie Justine Nielsen 26 Gift hans Kone Kiøbh.
Jens Peter Aastrup 15 - Lære dreng Kiøbh.


I cannot locate him in the 1850 census – most likely he was serving as a soldier or sailor in the war 1849 – 50 against the Preussians.

So, the story may be correct concerning the sword, but in a much later war.

There may be more to find – including Jens Peters birth – but I would like to have some other comments before wasting time with old parish records,

Greetings from Denmark
