Hans Peter Vick is the son of Hans Christian Frederiksen and Karen Kirstine (Pedersdatter) Frederiksen.

Hans Peter Vick is the grandson of Frederik Vick and Martha (Hansdatter) Vick.

Peter Vick was born in the month of January, in 1842 in Denmark, coming to the United States at the age of 28 in 1869 (Ship records indicate date was April 17, 1869).

He taught dancing lessons in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is where he met Maren Hoff. Maren was born in Norway on April 26, 1848 and came to the United States at the age of 18 in 1866.

Hans Peter Vick married Maren G (Hoff) (Huff) Vick on September 14, 1874 in Wilmar, Kandiyohi County, Minnesota.

His actual naturalization papers filed in Douglas County, Minnesota in March of 1880, show a date of April 16, 1869 as the date that Peter Vick arrived in America.

Peter Vick and Maren Hoff were married on September 14, 1874 in Wilmar, Kandiyohi County, Minnesota.

The 1880 census shows Peter, Mary A and children Christian F. Ole C. Martin C. and Martha living in Spruce Hill Township, Douglas county, Minnesota and shows Peter was born in Denmark and that his mother and father were born in Denmark also. Maren (Mary A) was born and Norway and both of her parents were born in Norway. All four children are shown as being born in Minnesota.

Tried to find a birth certificate for Martin in Wilmar, Kandiyohi County, Minnesota but there was no birth certificate on record.

After their marriage they moved to Wilmar, Minnesota. Seven sons and one daughters were born to this marriage. They then moved to Mooreton, ND and later moved to Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Canada. They lived there until the death of Peter on July 21, 1908.

They moved to North Dakota and land records show these dates in Mooreton, North Dakota.

Olaf bought section 9 farm on October 31, 1892.

October 26, 1901

Olaf sold part interest in section 9 to Maren Vick on October 26, 1901. Peter's name was not on the documents so he may have been in Canada at that time.

January 11, 1906

Maren & Peter Vick and Olaf sold all interests in North Dakota farms on January 11, 1906. It looks like Maren handled and signed the papers and different people witnessed Peter's signature. Maybe he was still in Canada or came back later and signed the papers.
