The family arrived in the United States in 1882. Two years later the husband and father was accidentally killed in a coal mine near Fort Dodge, Iowa. Shortly after the death of the husband Mrs. Peterson moved to Nebraska settling do[wn] on the Divide southwest of Gothenburg.
Through her industry, indominable courage and untiring efforts in time of sickness and adversity she earned the respect and love of all that came to know her.
In the year of 1909 she moved to Gothenburg, where she has since resided.
While young she gave her heart to God and lived a devoted Christian life. Her last expressed desire was that all her children should meet her in heaven.
