Peter Tolf and Augusta Landstrom Marry

At first we thought there were two couples; Peter & Christine Tolf and Adolf & Augusta Sandstrom. Isn’t that what it looks like?

But it was actually only one couple, Peter Tolf and Augusta Landstrom. They each brought a sibling to act as witnesses when Peter and Christine’s brother Frans Tolf married Matilda Peterson on the 31st of December 1881 in Batavia, Kane, Illinois.

Love was in the air; just three weeks later Peter and Augusta tied the knot:

For cousins trying to place Peter Tolf, Augusta Landstrom and me in our family tree:

  • my maternal grandmother was Harriette Kathlyn TOLF (1909-1954); one of three children born to
  • Julia Christine THOMPSON (1888-1964) and Harry Wilhelm TOLF (1884-1964); one of three children born to
  • Augusta Sophia LANDSTROM (1858-1936) and Peter August TOLF (1858-1929).

Interested in collaborating on Tolf or Landstrom family history? I can be reached at where2look4ancestors [at] gmail [dot] com.

My 2015 goal for Peter is to learn more about the Batavia and Chicago churches in which he was involved.

My 2015 goal for Augusta is to determine when and with whom she traveled to the United States.

My 2015 organizational goal for both is to bring all of their documentation from out-of-date to up-to-date on Ancestry, Dropbox, Family Tree Maker, and in their paper files.
