This is probably the right person: I found him on the 1870 Census of Varpelev Parish, Stevns District, Praesto County, Denmark. (This family is also on the 1860 and 1880 census of the same place)
Jorgen Pedersen, age 1, child, born in Varpelev (born 1869)
The whole family on the census:
Niels Pedersen, age 41, married, Head of house occupation: "hoker" born in Stroby Parish, Praesto County, Denmark
Karen Marie Hansen, age 38, married, wife, born in Varpelev
Karen Sofie Pedersen, age 6, (born in 1864)child, single, born in Varpelev
Hans Peder Pedersen, age 3, (born in 1867) child, single, born in Varpelev
Jorgen Pedersen, age 1,(born in 1869) child, single, born in Varpelev
Anders Pedersen, age 4 on the 1880 census (born in 1876, child, single, born in Varpelev.
Plus there are two other children.
Ane Marie Fredriksdatter, born 1854. She is actually listed as their daughter, but she has a different last name.
Lars Niels Fredriksen, foster child, born 1879 in Varpelev.
I hope this helps. I couldn't find anything with the name of Stromsholt. It is probably a Place name, which I think you said.
