Family oral tradition has Kirstine as Sørensen, not Pedersen, but a researcher tells me the records say, Pedersen.

This record has been much scribbled over, both by the enumerator and by the vandals at NARA, so my extraction may not be entirely accurate.  Christina's "years married" appears to have been changed from 16 to 20, though it should be "4" for both her and Søren, and Andrew's age and birth year have been written over.  The enumerator seemed "thrown" by how to deal with two people who have been married before, with children from each of their previous marriages.  Still, there can be no doubt this is the family we seek.
