  1. More interesting things…..Bernadette was born before Mary and Al Peterson were married?And they lived at 737 Blair??? That’s the Pelzer house, where Carol and her family lived until her mother went into a nursing home…..I can’t believe I never knew that…..

    1. In the birth index at the Minnesota Historical Society, Bernadette’s birth date is listed as February 8, 1918. According to parish records for the Church of St. Agnes, Mary and Allen were married December 14, 1919. I haven’t found any other documentation to dispute these dates so it appears so…and the only time I saw 737 Blair listed as their residence was on Bernadette’s death certificate so they must have briefly lived there. Was it a duplex?
