Birth

from the Peterson family bible

Note

Topias followed his brother's (Jeremias) move to the New World, travelling xxx years later. His life, aspirations are described in a paper written by Ruth Lahti nee Peterson which can be seen under the Source #S17 - which is well worth reading!

Note

This note about Jeremiah's move to America talks often about Topias and so it is biographical for him too.

Note

Topias name when he moved to America was Tobias Peterson
