Tobias Richard “Toby” Peterson
October 12, 1924 (Age 28 years)
Note: Toby weighed 2 pounds when he was born. He was kept in oil-soaked cotton in a box over the wood-stove in the kitchen. The only people allowed in the kitchen were his mother and grandmother, who were his nurses and full-time caretakers. Everything was boiled before being used for him. He was not born in a hospital, but rather accidentally after a taking a bumpy pre-birth ride over a country road in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan (perhaps Liminga). His mother kept a journal of his care, but she lost it in one of their moves.
