Peter Couse

PETER COUSE

This is a photo of Peter Couse that was taken in a Bainbridge studio - this must have been taken not long before his death in 1890. I'm trying to track down the descendants of Peter, but since that task may take many years, I'll include a list of his children at the bottom of his info - this is the best info that I have at this time. --Louise Chen, August 9, 2008
