A friend in Sweden is looking for living relatives who would be descendants
of her grandmother's siblings who emigrated to Holdrege and Oxford, probably
at the beginning of the 1900's. These people and their families are listed
PETER CHRISTENSEN, born in Viby, Denmark, 1888
his wife: SORINA, and their two daughters:
LILLY CHRISTENSEN and
CAMILLA CHRISTINE CHRISTENSEN, born in Viby, Denmark, 1884
her husband: CARL or KARL WILLIAM or WILLIAM CARL PETERSON b. 1874, most
likely born in Sweden, or in USA of Swedish parents.
Camilla and Carl had at least one child: ALIDA or ALEDA PETERSON, b. 1905
REV. KARL FREDERICK ZIEMAN, b. 1884. They had at least one child,
PAUL ZIEMAN, b. 1932. Paul was handicapped and he died in 1953.
These families are buried at Prairie Home Cemetery near Holdrege. If anyone
ever visits that cemetery with a camera, we would love to have photos of the
They can be scanned or we would be willing to reimburse for the film,
postage, etc. We do have the death dates of all the above, by the way.
If you are aware of any living relatives of these people, please contact me
off the list. Thank you!
