I just found out from a cousin that he remembers his Dad, my Uncle, Martin Peterson, traveling to O'Neill, Holt Co., NE to visit cousins. I think that would have probably been during the late 1960's thru the 1970's.
Uncle Martin and his wife Ruby lived in Los Angeles, CA and in later years, probably late 1950's, they moved to Anaheim, CA. They had two son's Martin Jr. and Bobby, and a daughter, little Ruby.Aunt Ruby had two children from a previous marriage, Walter and Marian Anderson.
My grandfather was Lawrence Petersen born 1836 in Denmark and my grandmother was Mary Nelson born 1870, also in Denmark. My father was George Peterson born in Emmett, NE in 1904. I guess after Lawrence died approx 1912, grandmother and the rest of the family moved to CA.Lawrence Petersen was in the Civil War and was a farmer. I am trying to find out if there are any of our family still in the area.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone with information that might lead to family connections.
