Soren Andersen b. 1834 in Denmark, came with his children and wife: Kirsten-Maren Sophie Nielsen, to Cedar Falls, Iowa
1884. Family story says that he had a brother who was living there before he arrived.
Most of the his children took the surname Sorensen.
Niels Peter/Peder Sorensen was a son, b. in Den. 1876, became a Lutheran Minister and served churches in Nebraska, Minnasota and Oshkosh and Recine Wisconsin.
Niels Peter Sorensen was married twice, a child of his second marriage was Rhoda Lillian Sorensen b. 1926. She married Curtis L. Johnson, had four children. After Curtis' death she married Robert Valentine.
I am helping her son, my son-in-law, to research the family.
I have data to share on Niels Peter Sorensen's line and would like to know about other children of Soren Andersen and their lines. Also, about the family in Denmark. They seem to be from the Holbeak area of Denmark,
