Soren Larsen and Anne Sophie Pedersen (Parents of Lars Christian Sorensen)

Soren Larsen, son of Lars Andersen and Johanne Pedersen, was born October 31, 1784 in Homessted, Hjorring, Denmark.  Soren Larsen married Anne Sophia Pedersen November 8, 1816 in Elling, Hjorring, Denmark.  Anne Sophia Pedersen, daughter of Peter Christiansen and Ane Johanne Pedersen, was born April 13, 1794 in Asted, Hjorring, Denmark.
Together, they had 2 children named Lars Christian and Neils Christian.  When Lars Christian came to America, they discontinued the Danish patronymic naming convention which would have resulted in his children having the last name of Larsen and retained the last name of Sorensen for all future generations.
Anne Sophia (Pedersen) Larsen died July 3, 1820 in Tolne, Hjorring, Denmark. 
Soren Larsen married Else Marie Jorgensen December 26, 1820 in Hjorring, Denmark.
Soren Larsen died July 26, 1843 in Tolne, Hjorring, Denmark.
