Historical Records

  • In the 1870 Federal Census, Tilda (age 15, born c. 1855) lives with parents Charles Peterson (age 44, born c. 1826) and Mary Peterson (age 33, born c. 1837) and siblings Abby (age 11), Charles (age 9), Mary (age 7) and Peter (age 3) in Kelly, Warren County, Illinois, 12 miles northwest of Galesburg. Charles is a farmer, and he and Mary were born in Sweden.
  • In the 1880 Federal Census, there is a Charles Peterson (age 55, born c. 1825) married to a Mary Peterson (age 45, born c. 1835), living in Williamsburg, Phelps, Nebraska. Years are an exact match with the gravestones in platte Valley Cemetery. The children overlap nicely with the children listed for Carl J. and Maria Sophia Peterson on Darlene Doane's FamilyTreeMaker: Charles Peterson (age 18), Selma Peterson (age 16), Albert Peterson (age 13), Emily Peterson (age 11), Osgar Peterson (age 9), Emanuel Peterson (age 7), Luther Peterson (age 3)
  • In the 1885 Nebraska Census, there is a Charles Peterson (age 65, born c. 1820) married to a Mary Peterson (age 48, born c. 1837), living in Westmark Twp, Phelps, Nebraska. This could be the people whose gravestones appear in the Platte Valley Cemetery. (Carl Gustav Lindstrom did indeed go by Charles or Charlie; and Mary is a close match for Maria Sophia. The birth dates are a 3-5 years off, though.)
