My name is Richard G. Peterson, my grandfather Lawrence Petersen was born in Denmark in 1836 and died in 1912 in Nebraska, I have information regarding a Lawrence Petersen, listed as a Civil War veteran buried in NE, that I believe to be him. Records show that he is buried in Clearwater, Antelope Co, NE. I know that is next to Holt County, where my father was born in Emmet, NE. My grandmother was Mary Nelson, she was born in Denmark in 1870, I don't know exactly when or where they were married. Their first child was Charles Peterson born Oct 30, 1892, then Martin Peterson born Feb 9, 1901, my father, George was born June 12, 1904 and the youngest child, a daughter, Mina, I do not have a date of birth for. My father married my mother Anastasia Mary Nott in Neligh, NE Feb 5, 1927.They moved to CA, where the rest of the family relocated.Mary Nelson died in CA. I don't have much to go on, right now I am waiting for a death certificate for Lawrence Petersen from the Vital Records Div of NE, hoping that there may be somehing to give me some othe directions to search. If anyone might think they have any information to add to this, or any kind of connection, I may be contacted at my e-mail address email@example.com.
