My grandparents, Lawrence Peterson/sen and Mary Nelson Peterson lived in Emmet, NE. They both were from Denmark. My grandfather died June 7,1912, he is buried in Clearwater,NE. In the obituary there was mention of a brother in law, Chris Nelson, from Little Sioux,IA, who attended the funeral.

In the 1900 census for Emmet,NE, a brother in law,Theodore Nelson, was listed as 8 years old & a member of the household. In the 1910 census for Emmet, NE, the mother in law, Mary Nelson age 78, was shown as a member of the household.

I am trying to trace my grandparents families back to find where they came from in Denmark.

If you are able to find information regarding the Nelson family, it might provide a link to something else.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
