Notes

  1. Mildred (Brunken) Kletke shared this photograph on December 29, 2003.
  2. Chistian Border "Chris" Petersen was born 24 Dec 1894 and is not in the picture.
  3. Carsten Petersen, Jr. was shorter than Mary, even though he is about 2 years older than Mary.
  4. This is the earliest picture that I have found of my grandmother.  She was about 10 years old in this photograph - possibly there is an earlier photograph of Mary available?
