I'm trying to identify the parents of my mother, Mary Eva Peterson. She was born 15 Sep, 1920, In St. Joseph's Hospital, Dickinson, North Dakota. Her mother was reportedly Sybil Peterson, purportedly born in Wisconsin, of Danish descent. She was taken to the hospital by a Jacob Peterson, who represented himself as her father.Jacob's wife was Anna Marie Anderson. The identity of Mary Eva's father was not listed- nor were the addresses of Sybil and Jacob. Mary Eva left the hospital 3 months later, as a never formalized adoptee of Mary & Bernhardt Van Cleef, of WA state, who raised Mary as a Van Cleef. The Van Cleefs never had any knowledge of Mary Eva's blood parents.
Per 1920 plat maps of Stark County, ND, at that time a Carl Frederickson was living near Dickinson, in Ash Coulee Township, as a workman employed by the Jacob Peterson family (I've never located them).He may have been Mary Eva's father.
So I'm hoping you may have information on Mary Eva's Peterson lineage- or know someone who does.
