Paul & Anne Kristine Elizabeth Pehrson Frederickson

Paul was born February 27, 1860, in Vittajo, Christianstead, Sweden to Fredrick Pettrusson and Nilla Simonsson. He married a Highland girl, Anna Pehrson, born March 20, 1868, in Gromstrup, Sweden to Anders and Hannah Swenson Pehrson. Her sister, Mathilda, married Lem Francis (q.v.).

They lived in Highland for a short time-perhaps 1896 - 1899 (probably with Pehrsons - Number 100) and in 1900 were living in Mill Creek and her youngest brother, Rex was living with them. Paul was a blacksmith at a brickyard. In 1896 they were passengers on the "City of Rome" from Greenock, Scotland to New York. In 1910 his brother, Swante, was living with them and in 1920 her mother, Hanna, was also living with them.

Anna died August 17, 1920, and Paul died January 28, 1942. He lived next door to Lem Francis during his last years. They are buried in Wasatch Lawn Cemetery.
