Birth: Feb. 26, 1841, Denmark
Death: Nov. 29, 1927
Nuckolls County
Nebraska, USA

Laura Sine Petersen nee Nielsen, was born in Aaby, Jutland, Denmark, the 26th of February, 1841, and died at the home of her daughter in Ruskin November 29, 1927. During her first year she was baptized in the church at Aaby, Jutland. After having been properly instructed in the fundamentals of Christianity as set forth in the Lutheran church, she was confirmed in Hammer church. She was married to Soren Christian Petersen in 1878. Prospects of getting their own home in Denmark being rather small they decided to try their fortune in America. They emigrated from Denmark in 1886, and settled down at Graettinger, Iowa, where they worked faithfully a number of years. From Graettinger they went to Wallingford, Iowa. Later they decided, although advanced in years, to find out what pioneer life was like, accordingly they moved to Kimare, N.D., and took a homestead. Here their powers were put to a test in battling with the prairie. They succeed (sic) in bringing a good tract under the plow. They remained in Dakota thirteen years. She was preceeded (sic) in death by her husband and one daughter.
