Theodor Carl Christian Pedersen - Brief Life Sketch

Contributor: Keryn Created: 7 months ago Updated: 7 months ago

Theodor Carl Christian Pedersen was born 26 February 1844 in Sct. Hans Odense, Odense, Denmark, the illegitimate son of Hans Pedersen and Gjertrud Elisabeth Henriksdr. He was christened 11 May 1844 in Sankt Hans, Odense, Odense, Denmark. Under the name of Theodor Charel Christian Pedersen, he was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on 27 July 1862 in Odense by J. Pedersen, and confirmed on 29 July 1862, ibd, by K. H. Braun. A remark by this person says: "Emigrated on 8 April 1864." From Oernes Conference emigrated by ship "Monarch of the Sea" in 1864 Theodor C. Pedersen, age 20 (i.e. born in about 1844) of Fuen (i.e. Fyn), a sailmaker. The ship’s records show him as T. Pedersen. On 22 August 1870, he married Karen Andersen who was also from Denmark in the Old Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Utah. They made their home in Big Cottonwood, Salt Lake, Utah. Their first two children, twins Edith (aka Ida) and Mary, were born there on 23 February 1873. They had three more children: Andrew Charles born 7 October 1876 in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah, Karen (aka Carrie) born 2 March 1881 in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah, and Ephraim born 21 April 1882 in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah. He became a U.S. citizen on 19 March 1878. While living in Big Cottonwood, Theodor and his bishop had a disagreement in which the bishop threatened to excommunicate Theodor. In those days, a bishop had the authority to excommunicate a man who held the Melchizedek Priesthood. It has been found that the bishop never followed up on this. Theodor was never excommunicated from the Church. After this conflict with his bishop, Theodor and his family moved to Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah. There he became a charter member of the Assembly's Presbyterian Church of Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah. As stated in his obituary, he was a well-known farmer and dairyman in the community. My father, Vern LeRoy Johnson, Theodor’s grandson, remarked one time that his Grandfather Peterson was a very unhappy man. It should be noted that he changed his name many times. He also changed the names of members of his family. His legal name is Theodor Carl Christian Pedersen. He had several alias. Those known are: Theodor Charel Christian Pedersen (from branch records), T. Pedersen (from ship’s list of passengers), Carl Pedersen, Carl Christian Pedersen, Charles Christian Peterson, Charles Andrew Peterson (from the Index card to Logan Temple Records) and Charles Peterson. At the time of his death, he was going by Charles Peterson. Below are some of the sources used for the above sketch. It should be noted that the Family History Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints changed a lot of the film numbers since this research was done. The research on Theodor and his ancestors was done by B.A. Borgesen. Brother Borgesen was a professional Danish researcher who was originally from Denmark. Source: Par. reg. of Sct.
