About peterson
This family tree brings together eight major branches of the Lloyd Peterson/Virginia Loucks  family.  I've also added many, many cousins.  The dominant branches are:  Anderson/Peterson/Olsen; 
 Langeberg/Dockstader/Loucks/Nellis/Klock & Randall.  I am indebted to Valerie Been Lober for   her research on the Anderson/Peterson families, Judy Card for the last four generations of the  Langeberg family, and to Otis Dockstader, John Mallory Dockstader and Doris Dockstader Rooney  for the vast research of the Dockstader Families.
 David Hill provided me with the direct linkage of the Loucks branch.  This tree already has   over 37,000 members, and we are not done yet. The Dockstader/Loucks/Nellis/Klock families were  among the 
 first white settlers to come to the Mohawk River Valley, up from the Hudson River in New York.   Henrich Klock was the first white man to set foot in this area.  He is our direct ancestor, as  is 
 Christian Nellis, the famous pioneer. (The Klock/Nellis families) I have recently found out that  we 
 are also direct descendants of Roger Williams, the Puritan reformer, who helped found Rhode  Island. 
 (Stuart Wood)

The longest branch of the tree is nineteen generations: Meyer Clamen b. 1552 (Loucks branch)     to 
 Zane Daniel Plueger b. 2014. (nineteen generations)

Special note should be given to Delina Ecker, born 4 MAY 1815.  In 1979 she was declared the  oldest  
 human ever to have lived (documented) by the Guinness Book of World Records (1976 edition).   She lived to be 113 years and 214 days old, first saw a doctor at 108, never wore glasses, and  stood under 5ft. tall.  She died in 1928 in New York, and was my great-grandfather's fifth  cousin.   
 Also notable, is the oldest person ever to have lived in South Dakota, Dagmar 'Dolly'  Anderson(Keehn).  She passed away in 2015, just shy of her 110th year. She was my father's first  cousin.
