I found a naturalization record for Harold - the image of the card shows same address as in 1930 census so confirms it is right fellow.

U.S. Naturalization Record Indexes, 1791-1992 (Indexed in World Archives Project) about Harold Peters
Name:        Harold Peters
Birth Date:        28 Apr 1894
Birth Place:        Sweden
Age at event:        53
Court District:        Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa
Date of Action:        18 Jun 1947

AND a WW1 draft card which has same birthdate

World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 about Harold Eugene Peters

The image shows:
he lives in Olag. MN
He was born Vennersborg, Sweden
He is a farmer, self employed
He is single
He supports his mother and father
He is medium height, medium build, brown eyes and brown hair
Dated June 5, 1917

********

So since he was in MN in 1917 he should be in 1920 census - hopefully with parents, but I have not found him yet.

Here is his death

Okay - here he is leaving Sweden to come to us. Lovely that they include exact birth dates in all these records.

so finally a name for one parents


I looked up Forest Lake MN and it is in Washington Co. but did not find them there in 1920 either.

I looked for a birth for Harold and this seems to fit allowing for spelling etc. from Swedish to English.

I just found a US naturalization for Anna Peters which shows same address as for Harold -

U.S. Naturalization Record Indexes, 1791-1992 (Indexed in World Archives Project) about Anna Maria Mathilda Peters
Name:        Anna Maria Mathilda Peters
Birth Date:        8 Apr 1893
Birth Place:        Denmark
Age at event:        54
Court District:        Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa
Date of Action:        15 Oct 1947

and this seems very likely for her death

Social Security Death Index about Anna Peters
Name:        Anna Peters
SSN:        534-66-0994
Last Residence:        98125 Seattle, King, Washington, United States of America
Born:        8 Apr 1893
Died:        Apr 1975
State (Year) SSN issued:        Washington (1973)

I haven't been able to find a marriage for Harold and Anna to find her maiden name.

Neither of them is in the Washington death index so while their SSN issued there they may have died elsewhere - do you know ?
