    Notes 
    • May be the 13 year-old Peter Rasmussen, goat herder, on the Grønsæt farm in Kvernes in the 1865 census. He was born in Thingvolds.

      Odd says Peder was born on 14 Sep 1854 in Batnfjord.

      According to his confirmation record, Peter was vaccinated on 25 September 1855.

      The “Øre in Tingvoll” emigration record shows him transferring to the Kvernes parish in 1883, just before his marriage. (He left Øre as an unmarried man but was leaving Øre due to his marriage.) That church book entry also shows his birth date as September 13th.

      He was Peder Rassmussen Rød Kristvik in Rudolf’s birth record. He was still on Kristvik when Mary was born, according to her birth record.

      In his daughter Maria’s birth record his occupation is shown as Maskinist.

      This is probably his entry in the 1887-1888 Duluth city directory: Rasmussen Peter, blacksmith National Iron Works, res 823 E Third.

      His entries in the 1888-1889 and 1889-1890 Duluth city directories: Rasmussen Peter, blacksmith, res 619 E 10th.

      His entry in the 1890-91 Duluth city directory: Rasmussen Peter, mach The Clyde Iron Co, res 619 E 10th.

      In the 1891-1892 Duluth city directory he is Peter Rasmussen mchn Clyde Iron Co, res 619 E 10th.

      His entry in the 1892-1893 Duluth city directory: Rasmussen Peter, lab, res 619 E 10th.

      In the 1893-1894 city directory he is mach Clyde Iron Co, res 609 E 10th.

      The pages in which he would be listed are missing from the on-line version of the 1894-1895 Duluth city directory.

      In the 1895 Minnesota state census, Peter and family are living in Farm Island Twp, Aitkin County, with or next to, all of the Eversons and Gustads. Peter’s household consists of Peter, 40, Maria, 28, Rudolph, 12, Einard, 7, Maria, 10, Artor, 6, Edvin, 2, and Nellie, 1. Peter is shown as having been in the state for 9 years (probably true) and in the present enumeration district for 8 years (not true, probably only 1 -- perhaps the census enumerator meant 8 months).

      He is not listed in the 1899 Superior city directory.

      In the 1900 Superior city directory, he is Peter Rasmussen, mach Superior Ship Bldg Co, r 724 N 4th.

      Living in the 5th ward of Superior at 724 Fourth in the 1900 census. Peter is a 45 year old machinist. Living with him and Mary are Aner, 12, Edwin, 7, Nellie, 6, Geda, 3, and Carl, 1. All of the children are shown as born in Minnesota. His older children are not listed as living with him.

      In the 1901 Superior city directory he is Peter Rasmussen, mach Superior Ship Bldg Co, r 432 Clough Av. His daughter Mary is a seamstress at that same address.

      Living in the 5th ward (”N of Broadway”) of Superior in the 1905 state census (nominally June 1st). The family consisted of Peter, 50, a machinist born in Norway; Mary 38, his wife, also born in Norway; Rudolf, 23, a machinist born in Norway; Iver, 18, a laborer born in Minnesota; Arthur, 15, a rivet heater born in Minnesota; Edwin, 12, born in Minnesota; Nellie, 11, born in Minnesota; Geda, a daughter, 8 and born in Minnesota; Ruth, 2, born in Wisconsin; and Mabel, 3 months, born in Wisconsin. The census only says that the parents of all of the children were born in Norway.

      In the 1907 Superior city directory, he was a machinist for Superior Ship B Co. He resided at 820 N 5th. His son Rudolph also resides at that address as does Mary, probably his wife.

      In the 1909 Superior city directory, he was a machinist at Superior Ship Building Co. He boarded at 419 Cumming Av.

      Living in the 3rd ward of Superior at 620 French Ave. in the 1910 census. He is shown as having come to this country in 1894 and is a machinist.

      Appears to be the Theo Rasmussen, 65, living in Farm Island Twp, Aitkin County, in the 1920 census. Living with him is his wife Mary, 51, and their daughter Ruth, 15. Theo and Mary were born in Norway, Ruth was born in Wisconsin. They also have Elsie Spaulding, a school teacher, boarding with them. Next door lives Iver Everson and his wife Benta and Iver’s brother Halvor. From the 1916 Aitkin County plat map, we can see that the Rasmussen farm was the 40 acres immediate south of the Mackaman farm. The Rasmussen farm was the southwest quarter of the southeast quarter of Section 5, Farm Island Twp, Aitkin County.

      The informant for Peter’s death certificate was his wife Mrs. Mary Rasmussen of Aitkin. Peter’s usual residence was Aitkin. He died from chronic myocarditis at 3856 29th Avenue South in Minneapolis.

    From Odd Åkvik, a photo of the Peter Rasmussen family that they sent back to the family in Norway. This is from the very early 1900s. The younger children in the picture must be the children that Peter had with his second wife, Mary (shown with him here): Geda in the center, Nellie to her mother's left, and Edwin on the far left of the photo with his left hand on his father's chair. The older children would be Peter's children with Ellen Gustad: Arthur on the far right, Eaner over his father's right shoulder, and Rudolph and Marie in the back row.
