From the May 10, 1939 issue of the Batavia Herald, page 6; "Mrs. Amanda Peterson - Funeral services were held Wednesday morning in the McKee Street Methodist Church for Mrs. Amanda Peterson, widow of the late John Peterson, who passed away Saturday evening in the Bethany Methodist Home in Chicago. The Rev. J.E. Borgman officiated at the services and interment was in Lincoln Highway Cemetery, Aurora.
Mrs. Peterson was born in Smaland, Sweden on March 1, 1867 coming to this country with her parents as a young girl. She lived in this community until a month ago, when she left with her sister, Miss Christine Tolf, to reside at the Chicago Home.
Until moving to Chicago, Mrs. Peterson resided at 181 Houston Street, the Peterson home for many years. Her husband was a prominent Batavia business man before his death, entering the livery business as a young man, and later converting his property on West Wilson Street into a trucking and automobile business.
Surviving Mrs. Peterson are her sister, and several nieces and nephews."
