Ethel Peet (Wennerblad)
Posted by: Lars Carlgren (ID *****7683) Date: December 09, 2004 at 18:32:48
  of 585

I'm looking for descendants of Ethel Charlotte Peet (maiden name Wennerblad). She was called Ethel and she was born on 1908 Apr 3 (Death Records of California). As far as I understand her death record claim she was born outside California (see below).

Her parents were Einar G Wennerblad, born 1885 in Sweden, and Ellen (maiden name Lf/Lf/Leaf) born 1884 also in Sweden. They were living in the US at the time of the birth of Ethel so she must be born in the US.

I have found her in the censuses of 1910 and 1930 together with her parents. In 1910 (Census) she and her family they lived in Contra Costa county. Three years later her brother Carl was born in Alameda county. I just can't find them in the census of 1920. A decade later she still lived with her parents, but now in the city of San Francisco.

Then I don't know anything more about her until she died on 1983 Mar 1 (Death Records of California)in Fresno county. Here's the death record:
PEET ETHEL CHARLOTTE 04/03/1908 LOOF WENNERBLED F REST (OTHER) FRESNO 03/01/1983 567-05-3729 74 yrs

Does anyone know anything about her, her husband or her descendants ? Any children ?

Could Beeman Judson Peet born 1908 Mar 4 in Connecticut be the husband ? In the census of 1930 he happened to live in the same county in Connecticut as Ethel's only brother Carl. According to the death records of California he died in Fresno in 1978. He was one out of only two persons with this family name who died in Fresno according to the death index of California. When B J Peet lived in Connecticut he was married to another woman, but he could of course married another time.

The other Peet was Vernon Everett born 1901 in Rockwood, California. I can't find him in the censuses.
