Christian Petersen - Chicago, Parents: Peter Petersen / Anna Body
Posted by: Victoria Duda (ID *****0311) Date: October 23, 2012 at 01:10:02

Looking for any info on Anna Body and / or husband Peter Petersen. I found their names on son, Christian's, birth certificate of 7/4/1883 in Chicago, Illinois. Both parents were born in Denmark, Peter about 1845 and Anna about 1856. I have no other info on Anna or Peter.

Christian married Florence Cook (b. 11/13/1890, d. 3/5/1926) and had nine children:
- Richard       ,
- Evelyn,
- Loretta,
- Walter (killed in WWII),
- Daisy,
- Lorraine (my maternal Grandmother),
- Adaline (died aged 6 mos.)
- Opal,
- Harry.

I have a lot on info on all of the children above but I don't know when Christian died, probably sometime between 1955 - 1975? I believed he lived somewhat out in the woods, in rural Illinois (possibly Volo).

Anyone that has any info or leads would be ever so greatly appreciated! I've hit a rather large brick wall here and am searching for any help.

Thank you so much in advance,

Victoria Duda Great-Grandaughter of Christian Petersen
