Notes for Frederick W. THURTELL

The entry about Ransom B. Folts in a 1901 Grant County, Wisconsin, biographical record shows his wife's brother, Frederick Thurtell, was a resident of the state of Washington.

He is listed in the 1880 U.S. Census for the Town of Jamestown, Grant County, Wisconsin (SD 2, ED 110, Page 3), enumerated June 2, 1880, as Frederick Thurtle, age 25, single, born in Wisconsin, whose occupation is a miner, living with his widowed mother, Anna Thurtle, and his sisters Harriet, age 23, Grace, age 21, and Belle, age 19, whose occupation is teaching school.

The 1900 U.S. Census for the state of Washington (Volume 15, ED 207, Sheet 14, Line 69) shows him as Frederick Thurthell, a white male, age 45, born in September 1854 in Wisconsin, living in Lowell Precinct, Snohomish County, Washington. He was enumerated with Henry Bridge, but his relationship is shown as boarder. Henry and Mary J. Bridge must have had a boarding house, since there are eleven boarders listed as living with their family. Frederick Thurthell is shown as single, with his father born in England and his mother in North Carolina, with his occupation shown as day laborer. The census shows he is able to speak, read, and write English. The soundex for this census listing showed his name as Frederick Thurthill, but the census clearly shows the last name as Thurthell.

He is listed as Fred W. Thurtell, age 65, born in Wisconsin, living alone in Sumas, Whatcom County, Washington, in the 1920 U.S. Census Soundex for Washington (Volume 49, ED 266, Sheet 7, Line 100).

Family records show he died in Oregon.
