Do you anything about Peter Tostevin? I have him in my personal HoF as a contributor based on his connection to organizing the Eckford Club.
From the sports page of Chicago's Daily Inter Ocean newspaper, December 20, 1879, p. 3:"Peter Tostevin, whose name was identified with the early history of the once famous Eckford Club of Brooklyn, N.Y., died in that city Dec. 8, aged 52. He assisted in organizing that club, and played first base during the seasons of 1856-57, and third base during 1858, filling the office of President in the latter year." Immigration and census records show that Peter Tostevin, a resident of Brooklyn, was born in France in about 1827, that he immigrated to the United States on May 31 1852, and that he was a mason and master builder.
