One of the Petersen boarders was named George Francis. I believe his wife was Hilda? He did give an eyewitness account of Lincoln's death in a May 5th 1865 letter but then he is silent. Does anyone know of any other information on the couple?

Thanks Roger for linking that. I am just surprised that there is no record of the husband and wife discussing(newspaper interview etc.) it later on. Assuming that they were still living.
