Markus A. Petersen
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 14, 1854
Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
Death: Aug., 1927
Morgan County
Indiana, USA

Marcus was born Emandus Marcus Petersen (information via original birth records in Germany) on February 14, 1854 however the date on his headstone reads 1851. Through census it looks like upon coming to America Marcus dropped his first name and picked up Adolph as a middle name in honor of his father Marcus Adolph Petersen. He also started going by Mark. Which is probably how his headstone came to be written with Markus. But the year of his birth is a mystery.

His birth records are definitely the correct ones though as my grandmother knows for sure her Grandfather's parents were named Marcus Adolph and Catherine Maria.

He is the son of Marcus Adolph Petersen (1801 1867) and Catherine Maria Christiansen (1823 ?)

He married to Martha Emma Schulz and they had six children together

Frederich Wilhelm Petersen (1883-1901)
Paul Christopher Petersen (1885-1956)
Mary Petersen (1887-1927)
Ernest Petersen (1888 1959)
Johanna Martha Petersen (1889 1979)
Frank Carl Petersen (1902 1973)

Ernest Petersen was my grandmother's father.
