Twin Daughter Peterson - 18 Sep 1916 - 20 Sep 1916
Twin Son Peterson - 18 Sep 1916 - 26 Sep 1916
They were the children of Della Pearl (Mead) Peterson and Thomas "Arthur" Peterson.
The death certificate for both twins list them as female. However, the newspaper birth announcement states that the twins were a boy and a girl, and there is a newspaper death announcement for the son. Also, a personal interview with the mother indicated that the twins were a boy and a girl. The two death certificates were filled out on the same day by the doctor even though one twin died a week earlier so it my belief that the doctor simply made an error.
