I have found one or two family trees with Lars Petersen in it, but I want more information. I am his great granddaughter through Amanda Petersen Rasmussen and Niels Rasmussen. The family lived in the Hill Creek/Herman NE area in Washington County. I would like to hear from anyone in the Petersen families, Lars also was previously married in Denmark and had a son Peter, but I cannot remember what the first wife's name was. Here is what I know of my tree; Lars Petersen's children with Birthe were Hedvig (Hattie) married Herman Kjelgaard. They had a son, Daniel who married Enola. They lived in the Brush, CO area. I don't know anything past Dan & Enola. Emma Petersen married Ed Olson, they had Dagmar who married Kermit Goll and Ole who never married so I think that is the end of that line since K & D had no children. Christina Petersen married Chris Kruse, there is a tree on this site with some of their info. Clara Petersen married Alfred Petersen, they had Hubert, Arnold and Elna. Hubert married Eulella, I don't know about chidren; Arnold married Kathryn, they had twins, Connie & Yvonne but I don't know anything further; Elna married Don and they didn't have any children that I know of. Amanda Petersen married Niels Rasmussen, had Vernon & Alvin, I am Vernon's daughter and can provide a lot on the Rasmussen side. Thorvald married Julia, and had Richard, Darlene, Phyllis, Janice, and I think also a daughter named Violet, who married a Kindler and moved to California somewhere. I think they had a daughter named Barbie. I'm trying to finish the Petersen tree and correspond with any relatives I may have out there. Also, Lars Petersen's sister Ane married Jens Jensen, Ane and Jens' daughter Petrina married Rasmus Rasmussen and they had Niels, so I am my own third cousin once removed on that side!
