--------------------------------------- 2 entries from Farmers' Directory of Walker Township, Platte County, Nebraska, 1923. [Abbreviations: wf.: wife; ch.: children; O.: owner; R.: renter; ac.: acres; sec.: section; ( ): years in county]
1. Christensen, Anton C. Wife Jorgine; children Helena, Edna, Dora, Victor, Helga, Rudolph, Erling and Roy. P.O. St. Edwards, R. 1. O. 80 ac., sec. 15, and in Woodville Twp., O. 80 ac., sec. 22. (32.)
[Ah, so this is where St. Edwards is! I wondered. Here you can see Helena’s sister is “Edna.”]
2. Petersen, Peter. P.O. Lindsay, R. 1. O. 10 ac., sec. 11. (32.)
[No way to tell, from this record alone, if this Peter is your Peter Petersen. I couldn’t find him in 1920 in West Blue, York, Nebraska, but perhaps he is there and just didn’t show up in the search.]
