it was common in Norway that when a child died, the next child born was given his name. In this case, after Peder Henrik died, the next child was named Peter Christian. He was born 5 Jul 1864 at Teinstrand. This is the child that died in Grimstad, Minnesota on 24 Oct 1958.

Birth #98

The Minnesota death index says "Peder C. Larsen" was born 5 Jul 1862. The birth year is wrong, but the day, month and middle initial match. Various census records also say "Peter C. Larsen".
