So- doing some more research and I came across this passenger list that fits the timing (nine years after Otto's marriage to Maren, fourteen years before they show up on the Canadian census and right around the time they started a family together. Both the names of Otto Olsen and Petra Pedersen (but not Pedersdatter...) are on the list, separated by only a few people. The problem- Petra is listed as male! Could this be a mistake or should I scrap this record and keep looking. I also wondered if Petra may have hidden her gender as they were running off together? It just seems like to much of a conicidence! Thank you again!
