Looking for information about Victor Peterson (Viktor Edvard Petersson Pensar) living in Wyoming somewhere between 1915-1923. He bought some oil shares there may 29 1923 in Baxter Basin, Sweet water county, Wyoming. I wonder where he had been before that. Haven´t found anything in Ellisisland.org either.
He was born may 28 1894 in Österby (pensala/oravais) finland. and died (could be mining desease if he worked in a mine?) aug 17 1926.
He was married to Senny Pott april 3 1915.
His parents were Peter Christian mattsson Pensar and Brita Kajsa.
So my actual question is where he were before Wyoming and what he did there..

According to Talko, Victor d. 1926, Oravais.. To US 1915 and returned to Finland 20 years later. He took the name Gullback... married 1915 to Senni Pått.. they divorced 1924.. He remarried 1924 to Anna Fredrika Westerlund from Pensala, b. 1902, d. 1944.. they had dtr G.E.V. who married Sigurd Marklund. No mention of his life in the US.

There is a Declaration of Intent for a Victor Edward Peterson, but his DOB is 23 May 1894. Says born Wasa, Finland. It's the closest I could find. I couldn't find a Naturalization so maybe he decided to return to Finland. It's from Utah, lives in Bingham Canyon. A matching WWI Draft Registration is also found. I found nothing in Wyoming in any census record under Peterson or Pensar.

Here's the images. Strange on Dec. of Intent in 1924 says not married. Date of arrival says 1915. Could this be after divorce? 1917 Draft card says married.

Could this be his arrival in Dec 1915. Destination Burke, Idaho. Shows wife in Oravais.

Karen,

In Talko, the family is shown by Mangs, Nylund, Berglund using the name Gullback (Pensar)... maybe Viktor Edward used the Gullback name when he came to the US. None of them show anything about his life in the US.

If you look closely at wife's name it says Senny. Wasn't that his first wife's name? The only Gullback found on Ancestry immigration records was Oskar Arvid from Oravais.

In Talko, Göran Berglund shows Oskar Arvid was Viktor Edvard's brother. They also had a brother Matts Henrik, b. 1891 who emigrated to Australia. Some of the children used the Pensar name and some took Gullback.

I will have a closer look! Senny was his wife and they divorced.
WW1 draft is interesting..would he have gone to war..? I don´t think so..or was it only a registration?
I have to check in K-G Olins book, the one about California and the woods, because there is a photo there where a man looks pretty much like victor..

Yes, he divorced..i don´t know when, but could it have been possible to divorce while he was in USA?? His wife Senny had a child with his brother.
Isn´t there a page 2 of the ships manifest? =) if it would say to who he was going. I will have another look in Ellis.

Part 2 of the passenger list...

The manifests were from Ancestry.com. Yes, it was just a registration card. Doesn't mean he served. I would guess it was possible to divorce if neither contested. If he and Senny married in 1915 and he went off to US immediately, doesn't sound like it was a good marriage if she had his brother's child.

Cate,
May be a "long shot" but in 1920 census in Carlisle, Grays Harbor. WA there's a Victor Peterson who is in the Stearnsville Camp, a logging camp, emigrated 1915, is married, and is a logger in woods. WA, CA, UT, WY AND ID all have reasonable proximity if he worked the mines and woods. Or, it may be nothing.

Who does he live with? sometimes i have found familiar names close to the one I have been looking for and in that way actually found the person =) And is there a bod? I guess he had relatives, the Carsons somewhere around Seattle.

There is a whole long list of loggers at this camp. Probably bunk housing provided by employer. I can look to see if there's a Carson nearby. Do you have first names?

No, unfortunately I don´t have any names..It says he was going to a Ludvig Larson, also the ones he was travelling with. So I guess he just went there with some friends to work.
