Eileen, I'm not sure if Walter Nels Pedersen is part of my Pedersen family or not? Do you have anything else on him? I do remember my Mother talking about Cozad, so I believe there were relitives there, just not sure who! Thanks.....Patti

Otto Pedersen and his family lived in Torsted Parish, Hundborg District, Thisted County.

Otto was born Dec. 2 1857 in Vorring. He was maried to Kirstine Rasmussen in Torsted Church on Apr. 9 1878. Best men at the wedding were Niels Petersen from Øster Vandel and the Shoemaker Rasmussen from Torsted.

As comments in the church Book the dates 1862 and July 8, 1856 is mentioned, and specifies that the Groom...1st time om march 17... I haven't been able to read it.

Kirstine Rasmussen was born May 21 1854 in Torsted and her father was the shoemaker Rasmussen from Torsted.

Adolphine Pedersen was born in Torsted on Aug. 15, 1878 and was babtized in Torsted Church Sep. 1, 1878. Adolphine's Godfathers/Godmothers were Christine Pedersen, the wife of Jens Snedker: ... Rasmussen, Jens Snedker himself and servant Niels Chr. Andersen; all from Torsted.

Leaving Denmark Feb 28, 1884, they are recorded with the surname Petersen. The destination was Chicago. Also recorded as being a part of this family was Inger, b. approx. 1881 and Ane, b. approx. 1883, but I have not been able to confirm that in the Church Book's yet.

In the danish Emigration Archives at the family is recorded with the registrationnumber from I8284P4309 to I8284P4313, so it is easy to look it up.

Hope these informations will help you.

I had a cousin to my grandfather who was named
Walter Pedersen. His father was named Nels and
his mother was Augusta, but I don't think they
ever lived in Cozad. They lived in Omaha and
later Elkhorn.
