Charlotte Mair was a mail-order bride from Mooresburg, Ontario, Canada. She was born in 1860 of Scottish parentage and was 32 years old when she married 39-year-old Rasmus Petersen on July 18, 1892. While Rasmus was on duty out on the Rock, Charlotte apparently lived in Portland. Rasmus records that she visited the Rock at least three times in the two years he served there after their marriage.
