This may or may not be the correct person:

Social Security Death Index:
Joseph Peters
Born 6 Dec 1896
Died May 1972
Last known residence: Mason, Ingham Co., MI

1920 census, Briley, Montmorency Co., MI:
John Smith, age 72, Indian, b. MI, woodcutter
Marian Smith, age 68, Indian, b. MI
Joseph Peters, grandson, age 24, Indian, b. MI, woodcutter
Sophia Peters, g-dtr., age 23, Indian, b. MI
Frances Peters, gg-dtr., age 4, Indian, b. MI
Beatrice Peters, gg-dtr., age 4 mos., Indian, b. MI

These Indians appear to be Chippewa.

If you think the Joseph named in the Social Security Death Index is the right one, you could order his death certificate from the state of Michigan.
