Frederick W. Petersen [1839 1901] Chilton Times --- July 27, 1901

Another of Calumet county's old soldiers has joined the silent army beyond the River of Death. On Sunday July 21, Fred W. Petersen died at this home in New Holstein, at the age of 62 years. Mr. Petersen came to America in the fifties and for a time took up his home with his brother, Hon. C. H. M. Petersen. At the breaking out of the Civil War he was one of the first to enlist and did not return until Lee surrendered. His remains were taken charge of by his comrades of the G.A.R. and laid to rest in the New Holstein cemetery, Wednesday, July 24. Mr. Petersen is survived by a widow and three sons besides a brother and three sisters.
Hon. C H M Petersen was called here last Wednesday to attend the funeral of his brother, Fred W. Mr. Petersen was one of the staunch old democrats of Calumet county, and represented this country in the Assembly three different times. At present his home is at Plymouth.
