Looking for early Physicians of Omaha, Douglas Co. NE. My great uncle Dr. Alfred Olaf Peterson was born in Bornholm,Denmark in 1873, came Omaha in 1875. He and two of his sons, Ward A. and Charles, became Omaha Physicians.
Dr Alfred had a borther Sven Peter Peterson born 1864 Denmark. He was known as Peter, and had two sons Lyle, and John who was in NE state Legislature in 1950 to 1970's, and lived in Ashland NE.
I am grandaughter of the Third brother Hans LAU Peterson who lived in Florence.
Their parents were Jens Peter Jensen and Ane Kirstine LAU, who both died in Omaha.Ane had a brother Dr. John LAU who had a practice in Elkhorn Station in 1869. Is there some kind of Medical Assoc. that has records of early Drs. I recieved a beautiful biography from some such Assoc. back in 1968-1970, but a home fire destroyed all my old files. Sure would like to know more history on these uncles of mine, and any children still alive.
