Block 5 Lot 8 Grave 3. Brother of the founder of Kimballton, Hans Jensen Jorgensen. He was the father of Baloney George. Peder was disturbed one night and went out to the chicken house with his long tom thinking a fox had gotten into the chickens. He was in his long johns and on edge. When the dog came up behind him and licked him, he accidentally fired the gun, killing about 40 chickens. The family had to get up and process the bounty the rest of the night.
There are no post-ems notes associated with this record.
