He was born on 10 Sept 1850 in Norway. I have no other info on where in Norway. He married Johanna Ottilia Jorgensen (in norway) she was born 11 Aug 1849 (per family info) her death record shows 1850 in Norway.they immigrated to Canada in 1873. According to his death records his father's name was Lars Petersen from norway.His mother's name is shown as unknown. Johanna's death record shows racial origin as british, her father is Jorgen Jorgensen born in Norway, mother unknown. I have found a marriage record showing their birth dates, if it's correct, they married on 23 April 1873 in Oslo Akershus, Norway. His father's name shows as Lars Pedersen. Unfortunately that's where I've been stuck forever it seems (well many months anyways :) Any help would be greatly appreciated.
