He died in 1922.
     Wilbur LeRoy DeHaven was also known as Wilber. Jehu DeHaven Jr. witnessed the migration circa February 1876 at Marshall, Iowa. Wilbur LeRoy DeHaven was listed as a son in Jehu DeHaven Jr.'s household on the 1880 Census at Le Grand, Marshall, Iowa.1 Jehu DeHaven Jr. witnessed the migration in 1885 at Dawes, Nebraska. Wilbur LeRoy DeHaven was listed as the head of a family on the 1900 Census at Bordeaux, Dawes, Nebraska.2 In 1909 at Nebraska WILBER DEHAVEN - The gentleman herein named is prominently known as a citizen of integrity and worth who has given much of his time and financial aid in the upbuilding of his section, and who has always been found standing on the side of right and doing his full share toward meeting and providing for the public welfare. Mr. DeHaven resides in section 13, township 30, range 47, Dawes county, where he has a pleasant home and valuable estate. He also has a homestead over in Sioux county, Nebraska, where he spends a part of the time. Mr. DeHaven was born in Washington county, Pennsylvania, in 1874. His father, Jehn DeHaven, was a farmer by occupation, and settled in Dawes county in 1885. Both he and his wife, who was Miss Margaret Beazell, were of American stock. They were among the pioneers in this region and raised their family here, going through all of the experiences familiar to the early settlers in western Nebraska. When our subject was two years of age they left Pennsylvania and settled in Marshall county, Iowa, where they farmed up to the time of locating in this county, where they took up a homestead south of Antelope Springs. Here their first building was a log cabin and they lived in this for about nine years, proving up on their land.

Julia Christine Christensen

F, b. 19 May 1872, d. 3 June 1949
     Julia Christine Christensen was born on 19 May 1872 at Spink, Union, Dakota Territory. She was the daughter of Ole Ormbergstol Christensen and Ingeborg Johnsdatter Teigen. Julia Christine Christensen married Peder Abrahamson, son of Abraham Olson and Anne Lorentze Pedersdatter, on 20 January 1891 at Brule Creek Church, Elk Point, Union, South Dakota. Julia Christine Christensen died on 3 June 1949 at Lutheran Hospital from myocarditis, Sioux City, Woodbury, Iowa, at age 77. She was buried on 7 June 1949 at Brule Creek Cemetery, Spink, South Dakota.
     Julia was born on a farm northwest of Spink in Union County. She was baptized and confirmed in the Brule Creek Lutheran church of which she was a lifetime member. In 1943 the church flags were presented by her in memory of her husband. On Feb. 20, 1945, she held a farm sale, listing the cattle, hogs, chickens, grain, farm machinery, minor equipment and some household goods. After the sale, she moved to Beresford where she resided until her death. Peder died in 1930. Julia continued to live on the farm until 1945 when she moved to Beresford. In 1939, the Golden Jubilee year of South Dakota, Julia received a Golden Jubilee Certificate from the state signed by Olive Ringsrud, Secretary of State. Julia was the first lady in Brule Creek Lutheran Church congregation to receive a Lifetime Membership Certificate.1 Adolph homesteaded in Zweibach County. He raised horses and shipped them to auction sales in eastern South Dakota. He never married. He was a veteran of World War I - Private Adolph Abraham, Co 18, 4th Infantry, Amer. E. F., APO Q 740, Ser #22 14 302, WW I. A newspaper clipping reported UNION COUNTY BOY HAS CLOTHES PIERCED BY BULLETS FOUR TIMES. History records that during the Revolutionary war, the Indians tried repeatedly to shoot General Washington from his horse, and failing to do so, became of the opinion that he was a superior natural being, whom to kill would call down the wrath of the gods. Union County has a young man who recently reached home from service in France that can tell almost as remarkable a story, and while he has no rabbit's foot in his left-hand pocket, and was not aware of any connection with the super human being he surely was wonderfully fortunate, to say the least. The young man is ADOLPH ABRAHAMSON, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Abrahamson, who live three miles north of the Spink store, and the remarkable fact is that four bullets passed through his hat, and one through his coat, yet he received not a scratch. The fact that he escaped so nicely becomes a pleasant matter to recount, but when the possibilities of any one of the missiles of death going wrong is suggested, it is far from a pleasant topic of conversation. The young soldier is the grandson of Ole Christensen, who departs Tuesday morning for a visit with his daughters, Mrs. Sever Abrahamson and Mrs. Edward Nelson, in the Golden Valley, Montana. She was listed as a daughter in Ole Ormbergstol Christensen's household on the 1880 Census at Spink, Union, South Dakota.2 As of 20 January 1891,her married name was Abrahamson.

Akron Register Tribune March 20, 1969 - 40 years ago Roy Abraham and Sarah Sommervold married
Akron Register Tribune March 21, 1929 - Roy Abraham and Sarah Sommervold wedding announcement
Roy Abraham died on 18 July 1981 at Akron Hospital from carcinoma of lung, Akron, Plymouth, Iowa, at age 80.3 He was buried on 21 July 1981 at Brule Creek Cemetery, Spink, Union, South Dakota.
     He was a farmer. Sarah and Roy farmed the Peder (Roy's father) Abrahamson farm. In 1965 (when Roy was 64 and Sarah 62 years old) they came back from town and found their home completely destroyed by fire. The only treasured family furniture peices saved were those that had been put in the garage for refinishing. Sarah especially missed the family pictures... everything was gone.

     He was a road maintenance with the SD highway department. Adolph homesteaded in Zweibach County. He raised horses and shipped them to auction sales in eastern South Dakota. He never married. He was a veteran of World War I - Private Adolph Abraham, Co 18, 4th Infantry, Amer. E. F., APO Q 740, Ser #22 14 302, WW I. A newspaper clipping reported UNION COUNTY BOY HAS CLOTHES PIERCED BY BULLETS FOUR TIMES. History records that during the Revolutionary war, the Indians tried repeatedly to shoot General Washington from his horse, and failing to do so, became of the opinion that he was a superior natural being, whom to kill would call down the wrath of the gods. Union County has a young man who recently reached home from service in France that can tell almost as remarkable a story, and while he has no rabbit's foot in his left-hand pocket, and was not aware of any connection with the super human being he surely was wonderfully fortunate, to say the least. The young man is ADOLPH ABRAHAMSON, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Abrahamson, who live three miles north of the Spink store, and the remarkable fact is that four bullets passed through his hat, and one through his coat, yet he received not a scratch. The fact that he escaped so nicely becomes a pleasant matter to recount, but when the possibilities of any one of the missiles of death going wrong is suggested, it is far from a pleasant topic of conversation. The young soldier is the grandson of Ole Christensen, who departs Tuesday morning for a visit with his daughters, Mrs. Sever Abrahamson and Mrs. Edward Nelson, in the Golden Valley, Montana. He was listed as a son in Peder Abrahamson's household on the 1900 Census at Spink Twp, Union, South Dakota; Peder Abrahamson is a farmer who freely owns his farm. He immigrated in 1890.1 Adolph Abraham was listed as a son in Peder Abrahamson's household on the 1910 Census at Spink, Union, South Dakota.2 On 15 September 1935 at Spink, Union, South Dakota, attended Abraham Family Reunion at home of Mrs Julia Abraham.

James Thurtell

M, b. circa 19 January 1737/38, d. 19 January 1801
     James Thurtell was born circa 19 January 1737/38 at Norwich, Norfolk, England. He was the son of John Thurtell and Elisabeth (?). James Thurtell married Winifred Nunn, daughter of Thomas Nunn and Winifred Duckett, on 17 December 1758 at St. Etheldrea, Norwich, Norfolk, England. James Thurtell married Elizabeth Atkinson on 2 May 1797 at Norwich, Norfolk, England.1 James Thurtell died on 19 January 1801 at Blundeston, Suffolk, England.
     He The family tree done by Harriet Thurtell about 1900 and the History ofthe Thurtell Family done by Susan Persia Thurtell about 1968, both in thepossession of Susan Persia Thurtell Miller, list James Thurtell as the earliest known ancestor of our family. See notes under James' son, John Thurtell. James is buried at Blundeston, and his tomb shows James Thurtell, died 19th January 1801,age 63 years. Information received from Peter Murray in 1997 shows that James Thurtell was the second son of John and Elizabeth Thurtell of Trowse Newton and Norwich, Norfolk, England. James Thurtell was a cooper in Norwich andfarmed in Lakenham, Norfolk, apparently on the Crowe family's estate nearNorwich. His farming apparently was on the property in Lakenham laterfarmed under Southwell, landlord, by his son Thomas Thurtell apparentlyby Harford Bridge (according to the research of Eunice Wilson). In 1770 he inherited his father's property in Hempnall, Norfolk. The children ofJames and Winifred Nunn Thurtell were christened in the Church of St.Julian, Norwich, Norfolk, until at least 1772. In about 1772, he acquired by lease a farm in Flixton, Suffolk, andproperty in the Redeham Marsh, Norfolk, and relocated his family from theparish of St. Julian, Norwich, to Flixton. From 1775 on his childrenwere christened at the Church of St. Mary, Blundeston, Suffolk, England. He was afterwards a prominent parishioner in Blundeston-cum-Flixton andlived at White House Farm (possibly leased from the Woods family). He also continued to have a presence in the parish of St. Julian in Norwich until at least 1781 since some of his children were buried in that parishuntil at least that year. His first wife, Winifred, was the daughter ofThomas Nunn, a Norwich worsted weaver. James and Winifred Thurtell hadnine children who survived childhood. James Thurtell, son of John Thurtell and Elizabeth, appears in the will of his father in 1767 and 1769 and that of his brother John in 1772,being during that time 'of the City of Norwich.' His baptismal record has not been found, probably because the Archdeacon's transcript forTrowse Newton in the years beginning with 1736 do not survive and theparish records are virtually unreadable due to flood damage. In hisfather's will, in 1767, James Thurtell was bequeathed an equal share(with his brother John and sister Sarah) of his father's property onBoarstreet in the City of Norwich, this subject to use of it by hismother during her lifetime. He was also to receive all of his father'sproperty in Hempnall, Norfolk, subject to compensation being paid to hisbrother John for his part. He also appears as an executor in the will ofhis brother John Thurtell, in 1772, in which he was charged with the saleof his brother's property in Trowse Milgate, with the proceeds to go toJohn's widow, Hannah. Where in Norwich this James Thurtell was living in1767 is not stated, nor what became of the property in Hempnall that wasbequeathed to him, or even whether and when the property in TrowseMilgate was in fact sold. However, the will of James Thurtell ofFlixton, Suffolk, dated 1799 and proved in 1801, shows him in possessionof a part freehold and part copyhold property in Hempnall, late in theoccupation of William King and 'now' in occupation of Samuel Gilbert.This is in addition to the property in his own occupation in Flixton,Suffolk, and Redeham Marshes, Norfolk, which he held by lease. It istherefore virtually certain that the James Thurtell who died in 1801 andmarried successively Winifred Nunn (c1740-1795) and the widow ElizabethAtkinson (1748-1828) is in fact the son of John and Elizabeth Thurtell ofTrowse Newton. Soon after 1772 he appears to have moved from Norwich andvicinity to Blundeston-cum-Flixton, Suffolk, where he first appears inour family tradition. Peter Murray's records also shows that the following information isrelevant: James Thurtell married Winifred Nunn on December 7, 1758, at St.Etheldreda, Norwich, Norfolk County, England. He was a single man ofSt. Julian parish and she a single woman of St. Etheldreda parish, bothin Norwich. The witnesses were Mary Chandler and Sarah Thurtell, buttheir relationships were not shown. James and Winifred Thurtell, beforemoving to Flixton, Suffolk, farmed property at Lakenham Norfolk, which isimmediately adjacent to Trowse Newton. A contemporary named James Thirtle married Mary Cook, 26 Dec 1762 atNorwich St. John de Sepulchre [i.e., in the same parish as the Norwichproperty of John Thurtell the peruch maker]. Other contemporaries of the name James are known, including JamesThurtell who married Esther Vout 30 May 1763 at Norwich St. Saviour, andJames Thirtle who married Susannah Berry 5 April 1752 at Norwich St.Stephen. James Thurtell of Flixton, Suffolk, in his will in 1799, proved in 1801,disposed of property in Hempnall, Norfolk, which appears to correspondwith the property held in 1770 by James, brother of the above JohnThurtell. These two James must therefore be one and the same, which means the other contemporaries also named James mentioned above mustbelong to different family groups. --------- WILL OF JAMES THURTELL OF FLIXTON SFK, FARMER, 1799/1801 Archdeaconry of Suffolk, England [Original File Copy] (Suffolk Record Office, Ipswich Branch, file IC/AA1/221/7) Note: This James Thurtell (m.1st Winifred Nunn; m.2nd Elizabeth Atkinson) is the earliest ancestor remembered in our family tradition. -------------------------- [Seal affixed to top of page] This is the Last Will and Testament of me James Thurtell of Flixton inthe County of Suffolk farmer -

Surrogate | to the Archdeacon of Suffolk. | --------------------------------------------------- END OF DOCUMENT FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS OF JAMES THURTELL OF FLIXTON, FARMER, 1801 James Thurtell of Flixton was a farmer with property also at the Marsh atRedeham Norfolk, and in Hempnall Norfolk. His will was dated 1799 andthe executors sworn 1801 when apparently he had died. Wife: Elizabeth, whose maintenance is provided for in the will but shewas not named as an executor. Terms of their marriage bond are referredto in the will. His children (mother not stated): John Thurtell Thomas Thurtell James Thurtell George Thurtell Sarah wife of Robert Browne Elizabeth wife of John Clarke Ann Thurtell Charlotte Thurtell, afterwards wife of Thomas Paine Sophia Thurtell Siblings or other relatives: none mentioned. All of the above were living in 1799 and 1801, and it is made clear thatthese were all his children then living. Provisions of the will (as interpreted by Peter Murray): His 5 children who were not underage, John, Thomas, James, Sarah, andElizabeth, were to repay to the estate sums of money which he hadpreviously advanced to them. Each of his 9 children were to be given 500 pounds of money, but onlyupon reaching age 21 if underage. His wife Elizabeth was to receive an annuity of 40 pounds, being earningsfrom a portion of the estate to be set aside and invested for thatpurpose. His 4 underage children, George, Ann, Charlotte, and Sophia were to havetheir maintenance and education provided from the revenues of hisproperties in Hempnall, Flixton and Redeham Marshes etc. His freehold and copyhold property in Hempnall Norfolk was to beentrusted to his son George for his use and to provide family revenueuntil he and all his siblings have reached the age of 21, upon which itwas to be sold by George and the proceeds divided equally among the 9children. His properties in Flixton Suffolk and the Marsh at Redeham Norfolk wereto be maintained and managed for the family benefit by his sons Thomasand James, who were to be given an annuity of 20 pounds for theirtrouble, for the remaining term of the lease or for as long as theyremained profitable, and if eventually sold, proceeds to be dividedequally among his nine children. His other personal estate etc when eventually converted into money to beequally divided among his 9 children. He appointed as executors his children Thomas, James, George, Ann, andCharlotte (power being reserved for the latter three, they beingunderage). Notes: This is the James Thurtell (1737-1801), our ancestor, who married first1758 to Winifred Woods (mother of all their children) and 2ndly 1797 toElizabeth Atkinson, a widow, who survived him. The seal of James Thurtell affixed to the will needs to be examined incase there is a crest or other insignia (not visible on the copy wehave). This can be compared with seals and insignia on other Thurtellwills and documents before and after this time as clues to otherrelationships and heraldic status. Since our James Thurtell is shown here to have possessed property inHempnall Norfolk, he appears to be identical to the James Thurtell whowas bequeathed property in Hempnall by the will of his father JohnThurtell of Trowse Newton in 1770.
