Rasmus and Charlotte Petersen rest together in North Cove Pioneer Cemetery in Washington. The round shield emblems at the top corners of the gravestone represent Rasmus’ membership in the Brotherhood of American Yeoman and the Knights of the Maccabees. Both organizations still exist today in the form of life insurance companies. (Photo by Elaine and Bill Schrock)
