Inga Pedersen (1885-1928) aka Inga Petersen aka Inga Peterson aka Inga Pedersdatter (b. October 20, 1885, Farsund, Vest-Agder, Norway - d. December 26, 1927, 10:20 pm, Christ Hospital, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA) Inga was born in 1885 to Peter Pedersen (1848-?) and Serena Larsen (c1865-?) and she appears in the 1900 Norway Census working as a 'barnepige' at 8 Gyldenløvsgade in Kristiansand, Vest-Agder, Norway. She emigrated to the US in the year 1900 or 1901 entering in New York City. She married Emil Schneider (c1880-1955) around 1910 and had two children: Eddie August Schneider (1911-1940), the aviator, who married Gretchen Hahnen; and Alice Schneider (1913-?) who married a Harms. Inga returned from a trip to Germany, via Southampton, Southamptonshire, England, on July 16, 1908 aboard the ship 'Deutschland'. She listed her homeland as Farsund, Norway and both her and her husband's height as 5' and 8' and their eyes were blue. Their address was 108 4th Avenue in New York City and she said that she previously entered the US in the year 1900. She returned from Hamburg, Germany on August 18, 1911 aboard the ship 'Pennsylvania'. The family returned from Hamburg, Germany to their home in New York City on August 05, 1914, aboard the ship 'President Lincoln'. They were living at 80 6th Avenue at the time. Eddie set the transcontinental air speed record in his age category in 1930. After Inga's death, Emil remarried and had one more child: Eleanore Schneider. Emil worked as a banker. Sopie Marie Olsdatter (1852-aft1910) wrote a postcard between 1910 and 1914 to her sister, Salmine Sophia Severine Pedersen (1862-1914) and it reads as follows: 'A little parcel to you from sister, stay well. Our most beloved dear Salmine and family, now when Sofie shall travel on Saturday, she will be kind and go to you and bring regards from your dear father and sister, I have no address, as I get the letters in return, got a letter from Lina 8 days ago, she is good and sound and has visited you, sister, and she said you were in good mood and happy, yes God helps you and your people, so that you still may come to see your old father he is pretty well and was glad he heard that Lina think about a trip home, together with you if everything goes well, with the help of God, we live well, have no suffer. Marie Klungeland is a candidate for confirmation October 6th. You John get regards from Malla Bekkevig Liva mm (with more). Dear, be careful so that you once again can see old Norway. Lina wrote that she had a good time by Inga it was so nice, we have had a cold summer so we have had [the] fire in the stove all the time, you shall get letters when I get [back]. Love from father [and] sister.' Inga was living at 171 Manhattan Avenue in Jersey City when she was hospitalized on December 19, 1927. She died of 'double bronchiopneumonia' with 'cirrhosis of the liver' and was buried on December 29, 1927 in Fairview Cemetery. Inga's obituary was published in the Jersey Journal of Jersey City on December 28, 1927.

Can anyone find a reference to Inga or her father in any Norway documents? I would like to know if she has any siblings. I only have her father in the 1865 Census living in Farsund with his widower father and six siblings.

Thank you for your help.CORRECTION: CORRECTION:Inga Pedersen was born in 1883 to Peter Andreas Pedersen (1830-?) and Serine Larsen (1840-?) aka Severina Larsdatter. Inga was their youngest child. Peter and Serine appear in the 1900 Norway Census, living at 50b Nykastelgaden Street in Farsund. Peter Andreas Pedersen (1830-?) is the brother of Ole Mathias Pedersen (1822-1914).
