Laura Larsen (1860-1931) parent names

Surnames: LARSEN, PEDERSEN, JOHANSEN
Laura Larsen, my great grandmother, was born to Lars Pedersen born 1828 in Ostfold, Norway and Lisa Johansen born 12 Feb 1833 in Laxarby, Alvsborg, Sweden. They married in Norway about 1859 and her father died a year later in 1860. I don’t have much information on either Laura’s father and mother. My pedigree line stops there. Does anyone have any information on Laura Larsen’s parents?

Here you have Lisa Jonasdatter (the Name you have on your tree) with her daughter, Laura Larsen, living in Frederikshald, Østfold:

As you can see, Lisa has a 2nd daughter, Adolphine Carlsdatter, 1 year old.

It looks like Lisa was not married to the father of either child. She was listed as "unmarried", not as a widow, in the 1865 census.

I can't locate the birth record - although it should be in Skjeberg, Østfold. Here is her church confirmation record:

Laura
Born 28 Jun 1860 in Skjeberg
Confirmed 22 Jul 1860 in Skjeberg
Father: unmarried sailor, Lars Pedersen
Mother: unmarried maiden, Lisa Jonasdatter

I don't see a birth record in Skjeberg. It says she was baptized on 22 Jul 1860, but there were no baptisms there between 15 Jul and 29 Jul that year.
