I know this might be a longshot........BUT I have to ask!
Is your Petersen line descended from a Paul and Julianna Paarmann Petersen
They also lived around Blair, NE and Fremont, NE. I believe Paul died in
the early 1890's and Julianna remarried her hired man, Claus Paasch. Does
any of this sound familiar?
My wife is related to Julianna Paarmann Petersen Paasch.
I too am a Petersen descendant from Holstein-Schleswig area. I am looking
for a Johnas Petersen married to ? Lorenzen. His son Martin August Petersen
is my mother's grandfather.
Please respond as I am very excited to learn your answer!
Friendly regards, Ray
