I am looking for information in regards to Ole and Mary Peterson who were farmers around/near Janesville. I can find Ole in the 1880 census, but he died prior to 1900, because I find his wife, Mary, listed as a widower, living with daughter Christina and her husband Herman Huitt (?). Herman is listed as a driller for Mack Willis (?). In the same household is listed Selia Peterson, daughter of Mary, who is teaching school and Marvin Peterson, age 22, who is a day laborer.
Ole and Mary Peterson had several children - Bessie, b. 1864, Jennsina/Jennisa, b. 1873, Christina, b. Oct 1872, Dora b. 1875, Marvin b. Sept 1877 and Selia, b. Aug 1881.
Ole had 2 brothers, Peter Peterson and Nils Peterson who all emigrated from Sogndal, Norway. Trying to locate Peter and Nils.
I am trying to find out if there is an obituary for Ole or Mary or any one information for this family. Where are they buried, etc. Contacting any family members would be wonderful!
Thank you very much!
