  • Edward Brookes Thurtell Information about Edward Brookes Thurtell and his relationship to the rest of the family was provided by Charlotte Angst Mackie in 1997. He was omitted from the family tree done by Harriet Thurtell about 1900, probably in error. A diary done of her 1853 trip to America by his aunt, Anne Everitt, shows that Edward Brookes Thurtell had visited Guelph, Ontario, Canada, at the time of her visit there, staying with his uncle, Benjamin Thurtell, and his family during the visit. The records of Charlotte Mackie show that Edward Brookes Thurtell was the son of John Thurtell and Mary Brookes. He may have come to America with his uncle, Benjamin Thurtell, and Benjamin's children, in about 1835, helping Benjamin clear land and build a log house, before moving to Wisconsin. He married Amy Burns of Indiana in 1841, and they had nine children. The 1998 LDS British Isles Vital Records Index CD shows that Edward Brookes Thurtell, the son of John Thurtell and Mary, was born in Pakefield and christened October 10, 1815, as recorded in the Bishop's Transcript for Suffolk County, England (source: FHL Number 952322). A family history received from Robert Johnson shows Edward Thurtell and Amy Burns were married about November 1, 1837, in the Vaughan Home in Sinipee, Grant County, Wisconsin. The Grant County, Wisconsin, marriage index book shows Edward Thurtle married Emma Burns on November 19, 1841, at Simessee in Grant County. They were married by A. P. Renton, and the marriage was filed in Grant County December 10, 1841. The index does not show a volume or page number. Family tradition tells of a terrible storm while Edward Thurtell and a party of immigrants were attempting to cross Lake Michigan by boat.Those with Edward landed successfully, but others did not. There is an unverified statement that two of his brothers or other relatives were in another boat that turned back, according to information received in 1997 from Peter Murray. Although he is not in the index, he is listed in the 1840 U.S. Census for the Eastern Division, Grant County, Wisconsin, at the top of page 25, as Edward Thurtell, with the only person in his household (himself) a male age 20 - under 30. His friend, Peyton Vaughn, and his family are on page 24 of this census. He is listed as Edward B. Thurtell in the index to the 1842 Wisconsin State Census. This index shows him as living in the Western Division of Grant County, Wisconsin, and that the record is on Page 009, ID number WI43512. The census record shows him as the head of the family composed of three white males and two white females. Conrad Burns is listed in the internet index for this census as also being in the Western Division of Grant County, Wisconsin. He was not located in the microfilm for the census at the National Archives in Chicago, Illinois, on November 4, 1999. Some of the pages of this census are nearly illegible in the microfilm copy at this location, however. Edward B. Thurtle is listed in the U.S. Census Index for Wisconsin for 1850 and in the Wisconsin State Census Index for 1854. These show him as living in Jamestown, Grant County, Wisconsin, both years. The reference for 1850 is WI 136, and for 1854 it is WI. The 1850 U.S. Census for Jamestown, Grant County, Wisconsin, shows him as Edward B.

The envelope was postmarked February 28, 1847, in Guelph, and the letter is dated March 1, 1847. The letter mentions not having heard from Edward in three years. The 1901 Grant County, Wisconsin, Biographical Sketch Book listing for Ransom B. Folts shows that Edward B. and Amy (Burns) Thurtell were 'old pioneers of Grant county. Mr. Thurtell was born in England, and his wife in North Carolina in 1820. They settled on a farm one mile north of Louisburg, where they lived until his death, in 1876. Mrs. Thurtell still survives, at the age of 80. There were nine children in their family.' Records of Jamestown Cemetery, Grant County, Wisconsin, show Edward Brookes Thurtell was born September 17, 1815, in Bakefield, Suffolk, England, and died April 16, 1876. The actual place of birth was probably Pakefield. An infant daughter of Edward Brookes and Amy Thurtell, who was born September 29, 1865, and died April 11, 1866, is also buried in this cemetery.

  • S I Freeborn, horticulturist and apiarist, first came to Richland county in 1851, with his brother-in-law, James M Cass, with whom he lived, being unmarried at that time. Soon after his arrival he engaged in the lumber business, in company with a man named Barber. They went up Pine river, cut the timber and rafted it down the stream. They had at one time 2200 logs upon the river. He was married in 1859 to Elvira Howe, a native of Canada. Two years later he settled on his present farm, on the northeast quarter of section 20, town 10 north, range 2 east. In 1856 he bought twenty colonies of bees of Green Mayfield, which were the beginning of the apiary he now owns. At present he has 320 colonies. He sold, in 1882, 28,000 pounds of honey. In the nursery business, he is the pioneer of this place. He has met with decided success, and has made large sales, for a new enterprise, and the stock being as represented, gives satisfaction and an increasing demand may be expected. In 1862 he associated A L Hatch in this business. They have at present, a nursery stock of 150,000 trees, an orchard of 4000 trees and a general stock in proportion. Mr. Freeborn is a native of New York, born in Chautauqua county, April 30, 1833. His father died when he was ten years old. Soon after, his mother was married to Thomas Pound, and the family removed to Crawford Co., Penn., where they lived until 1847. In that year they emigrated to the territory of Wisconsin and located in Dane county, making the trip in thirty days, traveling overland with teams. The subject of this sketch remained with his parents a short time, then went to Blue Mound, where his brother had charge of a stage station. He assisted him there in the care of the horses, two seasons. At the age of sixteen he went to Helena and engaged in ferrying on the Wisconsin river, two summers. During that time he ferried many persons across the river, who became settlers of Richland county. Mrs. Freeborn died in 1872, leaving three children --- Arvilla, Elmer and Ernest. In 1873 he was married to Hadassah Spyker. Two children have blessed this union --- Simon A and Lorena. Politically, Mr. Freeborn belongs to the republican party, having been identified with that organization since its formation.9

  • Mary Seton witnessed the migration in 1847 at Dane, Wisconsin.
  • Samuel Irwin Freeborn migrated in 1851 at Richland, Wisconsin.
  • In 1868 at Richland County Nursery, Richland, Wisconsin, This nursery was started in 1868 by S J Freeborn, at his home on section 20. In 1871 he was joined by A L Hatch, and a partnership was formed between these two gentlemen for carrying on the business. At this time the nursery was removed to sections 22 and 27, where sixty acres were purchased, forty of which were improved. Since that time other tracts of land have been purchased until they now have 160 acres, the most of which they use. Both of these gentlemen have separate orchards, aside from the nursery, Mr. Freeborn having 3500 trees and A L Hatch, 2000. The firm has been very successful in their business, and much credit is due to them for their energy and enterprise in the establishment and prosecution of this beneficial and much needed industry.

  • Excerpt from a "History of the Langdon Family" written by Wayne A. Pewsey dated March 1967:

    Frank taught school in Wisconsin at the age of seventeen, the year of the Iowa migration. He farmed in Iowa, taught school in Missouri and Nebraska, before he made the "Oklahoma run," historically recorded in the settlement of that state. Although he failed to get a "claim," he bought land there at that time and completed his life on a farm near Weatherford, Oklahoma. It appears, however, that he did little farming of that land, since he was a teacher there before he obtained appointment as a rural mail carrier for the remainder of his career.

    Although he was twice married, Hattie Arnold 1900-1906 and Jessie Freeman 1909, he had no children. When Nettie was widowed, she and Frank rented land and farmed together. Thus he, too, had a period of substitute father to my mother. Her adoration of him also lasted throughout her life and their correspondence kept them in close contact.

In those ninety-nine years Chris endured some unbelievable experiences, close calls and terrible hardships which he survived only with his one-in-a-million blend of perseverance, determination and endurance. In the settlement of South Dakota and the development of farming practices into the modern, mechanized system of the present time several stages of development have occurred. Usually we think of this as the work of people of two or three generations. Seldom do we find in the lifetime of one person the experience of homesteading on the prairie, breaking the sod and living through thee experiences of depression, drought and dust storms, two world wars and then continuing on and participating in the age of modern farming, and this in the lifetime of a person who is still living and remembering this history. In his 99 years, Chris has lived and experienced the whole range of the settlement and development of South Dakota farming. He remembers prairie fires, devastating droughts, grasshoppers that ate everything in sight and lots of hard times.
    A few years ago Chris Larson sat down with a tape recorder and with a keen sense of memory described many of the events of his life, some stories almost unbelievable but as Chris says time after time on his tapes, "Now you people of today might not believe this, but it's absolutely true." And all who know Chris know that if he says so you can believe it. This is the storey of Chris's life where he lived it, in Charles Mix county, South Dakota, in the Nebraska panhandle around Harrison and the last half of his life in Union county around Alcester.
    Chris's parents, Lars and Mary Larsen were born, grew up and married at Viborg, Denmark, where his father, Lars, served in the Danish Army. Three sons were born to them in Denmark. Lars came to America alone in 1888 and three years later his wife and three sons came to America to join him at Blair, Nebraska, where he had farm work. One son died while they were at Blair and three other children were born there, Chris and a brother and sister. In 1897 they family loaded up in a covered wagon and moved to Charles Mix county, South Dakota, and settled on a farm one mile east and one mile north of the old Mansbridge store in Moore township. Three years later they moved to a different farm about a mile east. While there a tornado took every building except the house, so they moved again, this time to a farm four west and two south of Lake Andes, a farm with a lot of extremely hilly ground. His father had Chris and his brother and sister go down to tat farm the summer before they moved there and put up hay for the winter. Chris was only about eight, his brother 12 and his sister 10. With a team and buckrake and pitchforks the three children stayed here and stacked hay for two or three weeks. Chris learned to work hard at an early age. Later that fall the family moved down to the hilly farm west of Lake Andes. Chris remembers it as a place that required a lot of hard work. He remembers his mother shearing eighty sheep with a hand clipper. There were acres of hill pasture which had to be fenced which required many days of cutting posts by the Missouri river and putting in the fences. Then a prairie fire might come along and burn a lot of the posts and it was back to more post cutting and fencing. At this time Christ was not quite old enough to split rock and put in fence posts. It was his job to ride the rented pasture land which is now the town of Lake Andes. When the town of Lake Andes was built Chris's father helped haul the lumber for the town and also for the building of Geddes. One day Chris neglected his pasture duties for a bit and picked up 17 eggs somewhere which he sold for twenty cents at a saloon and bought some cigarette paper and piece of candy, (a rare luxury). One time when Chris was 12 his brother Bryan was ten, the boys were sent with four horses to a farm near Geddes to stay by themselves and plow with a walking plow. They had to stand on a box to reach high enough to harness the team. After a time they became so lonesome that they turned the horses loose, knowing they would go home and thus they got to spend one night at home, eight miles away.
    After a few years on the farm by Lake Andes his father decided to take up a homestead in the panhandle of Nebraska. Horses, cows, machinery and household furnishing were loaded on one of the so called emigrant trains, destination Harrison, Nebraska. At Harrison they unloaded and by team and wagon made their way 22 miles south till they came to knoll on the prairie where Chris said his father stated, "this is where we'll have our farm." The wagon was emptied and over a small trench which they had dug in the ground, the empty wagon box was turned over. This was the shelter for the family until a small house was erected. They had left eight or ten horses back at Lake Andes so Chris's father had to return to bring them out for use on their Nebraska farm, just six miles from the Wyoming line. A small house and barn were built and they began breaking sod and planting crops. The following year, 1909, Chris started school, mostly all older kids and such a rough bunch that the teacher stood it for only about two months and then quit.
    Chris's years as a young lad around Harrison were filled with some rugged experiences. One winter a very severe snowstorm killed hundreds of cattle, mostly those of the large ranchers in the area along the Niobrara river. The cattle drifted with the storm into the river and were covered with snow and suffocated. The only thing salvageable was the hide. He remembers hayracks, loaded with hides, pulled by four horses, coming into Harrison where the hides were shipped out by rail. Chris worked that winter for a rancher named Jack Berett and was in charge of feeding 200 head of cattle. After the storm he rode for hours trying to locate them. When he was ready to give up he noticed steam coming from a huge snowbank. He got help to scoop them out and not a one died. There on the ranch at Harrison he learned to handle and break horses. He spent most of his free time breaking wild horses to ride for use on buggies or machinery. He had a riding horse which he could ride into Harrison across country jumping over any fences they encountered not having to open the fifteen to twenty gates along the way. The next year Chris's sister and brother-in-law, who were farming east of Geddes in South Dakota decided that they wanted to homestead in Nebraska too. Chris's father decided that it would be a good idea if he rented their farm at Geddes and had Chris go back to South Dakota to farm it. So with spring approaching they took a couple of teams of horses, two wagons and few other pieces of farm equipment and loaded them on the train at Harrison for the trip back east. One passenger was allowed to ride along with the freight, so rather than buy a ticket, Chris hid under the wagon box. He had been seen earlier there with his father so the railroad men became suspicious. They found him and was put off the train. He had to buy a ticket on a passenger train and caught up with his father at Norfolk. There they took the railroad spur north to the town of Niobrara, Nebraska, where they would cross the Missouri into South Dakota. They unloaded from the train, hooked up their teams and prepared to drive across the Missouri on the ice. Warm weather had caused the ice to honeycomb. They were told to walk beside their wagons as far as the harness lines would reach, then if the wagons broke through they would have a chance to save themselves. They made it across safely to Running Water on the South Dakota side. The next day, heading for the farm at Geddes and caught in a snowstorm, spring seemed a long ways away. The storm became severe and they stopped at a farm near Tyndal where they were invited in for the night with the family who, Chris said, "were a Bohemian family, wonderful people." The next morning when the storm lad eased up and they were leaving, Chris's father asked what they owned for the several meals and feed for the horses. He remembers that the amount asked was only about four or five dollars but his father had only a larger bill and the farmer had no change for it. "You'll be going through Wagner, just leave the money at the bank there" said the farmer host. Chris was impressed at the trust that man had in them, two complete strangers. They completed the trip the next day to the farm east of Geddes and Chris got his few essential pieces of household furniture and supplies put away and then a few days later it was time for his father to head back to Harrison. With a team and buggy Chris took his father to Bonesteel, crossing the Missouri again, to make the trip back on the stagecoach which was still a major means of transportation in that area where railroads were not yet available to all towns. As soon as the snow melted and the ground dried up a bit Chris started the spring plowing with the old walking plow that they had brought back from Nebraska. An old neighbor, named Larsen, (a Dane but not a relative) and his wife came along in their top buggy, headed for Geddes. The kindly old neighbor walked over to where Chris was plowing with the dilapidated walking plow and said, "You'll never raise a crop in ground plowed like that, nothing but lumps that look like a hog has been rooting here. You've got to have a better plow than that." Chris said he had no money to get a better plow. "Don't worry about that," his neighbor said, "I'm going to Geddes now, I'll get you a new plow and pay for it." Thanks to that kind and generous neighbor, that afternoon someone from Rice Brothers Implement in Geddes brought out to Chris a new plow that did a good job of plowing and it was a plow with a seat on it! This was real progress, a riding plow. Later Chris's father paid for the plow.

Sunday, March 6, 1955, was the 96th birthday anniversary of Mrs. Mary Pederson Larsen, which was observed with open house at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Hannah Paulson in Geddes, South Dakota. Relatives were entertained Saturday March 5, to accommodate the many well wishers. Miss Margaret Ostberg baked and decorated the beautiful birthday cake. Mary Pedersen was born in Knupstrup, Kaarup Sogn, Denmark, March 6, 1859. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jens Peder Pedersen lived to be 93 and 96, respectively. Her twin sister and three brothers also lived to see their nineties. She married Lars C. Larsen, October 22, 1883 in the Lutheran church of Kaarup Denmark. Eight children were born to this union, Mrs. Hannah Paulson of Geddes, South Dakota; Mrs. Lee Orr of Fresno, California; and four sons, Chris Larsen of Alcester, South Dakota; Bryan and Raymond Larsen of Harrison, Nebraska; and Carl Larsen of Colville, Washington; Two sons Jens and John, died some years ago. Besides her six children, Mrs. Larsen has eleven grand children; twenty-four great grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren. In 1890, her husband immigrated to Blair, Nebraska, and a year later Mrs. Larsen and their three small sons followed. They sailed on a German ship and were at sea three weeks. In 1900 they homesteaded in Douglas county, near Armour, South Dakota and later moved to a ranch forty miles south of Harrison, Nebraska. Her husband died in the fall of 1941 and Mrs. Larsen moved to Harrison, Nebraska to make her home. In the fall of 1954 she came to Geddes to make her home with her daughter. Mrs. Larsen is alert, has a good sense of humor, and is in good health. When asked to what she accredited her long life, she replied, "I have always had good health, for which I am thankful to God. I have worked hard, but that has not hurt me." Inquiring about how many grand children she has, she wittingly replied, "I don't know, everybody calls me Grandma Larsen." She has knitted twenty-five pairs of mittens during the winter and crocheted thirty-one rugs and many fancy work items. She gave six pairs of mittens to a needy family. She says she can easily knit a pair a day. In reminiscing, Mrs. Larsen said, "I did house work for a family with three small children in Denmark, and helped milk ten cows three times a day, for which I was paid two and one-half crowns a week or fifteen cents a day we worked from sun rise until sun set."

Verla Biddle, daughter of Virgil and Viola (Larson) Biddle was born June 12, 1943, at Akron, Iowa. She was baptized on August 15, 1943, at Peace Lutheran Church, Alcester, SD. Verla attended rural schools in Alcester, Geddes and Garretson, South Dakota communities, where her parents were engaged in farming. Verla was confirmed in her faith at Zion Lutheran Church in Garretson. She enjoyed many years of involvement in the Yohoma 4-H Club. Verla graduated from Garretson High School with the class of 1964. During her working years she was employed many years in housekeeping at hotels in Sioux Falls. She also was dedicated kitchen help for the Sioux Falls Joe Foss Airport restaurant and the Crack’d Pot restaurant.

Over the years, Verla lived in various areas in Sioux Falls and was sure to get involved with a church in her neighborhood. She was a past member of Grace Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls where she enjoyed singing in the choir and attending Bible study classes. In the spring of 2014 Verla moved to Hutchinson, MN, where she was a faithful member of Faith Lutheran Church. Verla’s church involvement was very important to her and she was always sure to be lending a helping hand wherever needed. Her favorite church activities were attending Bible study and “Digging Deeper” classes.

While living in Sioux Falls, Verla’s caring heart led her to volunteer at both Avera McKennan and Sanford hospitals for many years. Verla relished her volunteer work, even as she walked to the bus stop in the winter when it was still dark. She earned the volunteer of the month award from Sanford on one occasion. In her free time she loved to bake and enjoyed “spoiling” her friends and family with her sweets. She was known for her banana bread, which she always proudly explained was her niece Jessica’s recipe. Verla always looked forward to playing cards with her friends. Verla also did embroidery work, often while having coffee with friends. She even became a whiz at 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles. Verla was always game to go to church dinners and ice cream socials. She loved her beautiful cat Boots and later adopted her mother’s cat, Tiger, when Verla’s mother became too ill to care for him. Verla will be missed by many.

Left to cherish her memory are her sister, Glenda (Arnie) Jonson of Hutchinson, MN; brother, Gary (Hannele) Biddle of Lenoir, NC; nieces, Lisa (Kevin) Langton of Mankato, MN, Jessica Biddle of Fort Mill, SC, and Karen (Henry) Rosario of Charlotte, NC; and nephew, Eric (Kelly) Bunde of Mankato, MN; great-nieces, Miranda Bunde and Layla Rosario; great-nephews, Jacob Langton, Justin Biddle Rayak, Luc Biddle, and Evan Bunde; two aunts, Gladys Mollet of Alcester, SD, and Pat Biddle of Geddes, SD; eleven cousins and their families; and many other relatives and friends.
