I am in search of Otto Theodore Perske who lived in Stanton Nebraska. He apparently died there in Feb of 1972. I don't have the name of his wife, but she apparently died on August 5 1969. I'd like to know more about these people, if they had children, where they are buried their birthdates, obits or whatever can be found on them. If someone would direct me to where i can search i'd be ever so greatful.

Hello~~I am not related to this family. But may be able to help as we rented a home that they owned at one time. They did have children, Betty, Harlan and Nathan. Harlan and Nathan are now deceased. But Betty Bohac is living in Norfolk, NE.

Otto's wife's name was Margaret(last name unknown)

re Otto Perske

Your last respondent was partially correct. Otto did have three children however Nathan and Betty(Bohac)were from his first marriage to Clara Glaser, Harlan is his son from his second marriage after Clara's death. Harlan's mother was Margaret Harms. Harlan was my father, both him and Nathan are deceased. Otto was the son of Gustav and Pauline(Klatt) they had eight children. Sons Otto, Adolph, Paul and daughters Mina, Elsa, Helene, Leona, and Martha. Hope this clarifies things

Ah Thanks again...I had her written in my notes, but apparently she wasn't listed under the children. I probably wasn't sure who she belonged to. I had this for her...

born June 12, 1893
Married March 24,1937 to C.W. "Bill" James Born 1897 Died October 2,1950
Died May 9,1986
No Children

I am thinking I may have things messed up...the dates are not matching on some of the children for some of them are born within a couple years of Otto according to my notes, haha, no wonder I put this one aside.
