There was a Peter OLSON, who patented in 1875, Twp. 94 - 54, irregular tract in Section 29 S2SW; 30 SESE, & 31 NENE. I think that would be near Mission Hill in Volin Twp. However, the census shows Peter OLSON of Twp. 95 in 1880, so the one you have must be the Peter OLSEN who patented in 1882, 95 - 54, 9 SW. Rasmus OLSEN patented in 95 - 54, in Sections 29 SE & 32 NWNE, irregular tract. I think that was Marindahl Twp. Application and proof papers for Homestead patents are available from the National Archives.
FamilySearch database of the 1880 Census, Twp. 95, Yankton: Peter O. OLSON, 59; ch. Ole, 25; Lawrence, 22; & Maria O., 19. Other Hans ERICKSEN, 9, all born in Norway.
Next entry: Rasmus OLSON, 55; Dorthea, 55; Johan A., 19; & Dina, 14, all b. Norway. RootsWeb Family Trees says both Peter & Rasmus (1825 - 1913) were sons of Ole OLSEN, b. ca. 1791, & Elisabeth. [Is that your entry, and, if so, where did you find the connection? Do you have death certificates and obituaries for Peter & Rasmus?]
