Lars Peter Fredericksen

His surname is spelled "Fredrickson" or "Fredricksen" in some sources. There is some question about which company he traveled in. His obituary indicates that he and his parents, Adophe and Karen Pederson Fredericksen, traveled in the Canute Peterson Company in 1856. However, the Mount Pleasant Historical Association listed him as traveling in the Hunt company and put his parents in the Smoot Company of the same year. Further research is needed to determine which is accurate.
