Story

A portrait of the three daughters of Andreas "Andrew" and Mathilda Louise "Tillie" (Hansen) Petersen.  They were first cousins of Grandmother Brunken.

Date

1914 from the photograph date "14".

Location

Neligh, Nebraska from the photographer location on the picture.

Notes

  1. While the caption on the bottom of the picture suggests that the middle daughter is Till and the daughter on the right is Lena, I think the order is reversed given the apparent relative ages of the two girls.
  2. Photocopies of this picture and associated family records were sent to me by Carolyn Petersen on August 27, 2014. She obtained photocopies of genealogy records including this portrait from Mathilda Louise "Till" (Petersen) Sponhower over 20 years ago.
