She is listed as living with her parents, Frank and Eva Thurtell, her sister Olive age 2, and her brother, Frank age 1. The LDS Vital Records Index CD for North America shows that Walter Smith and Mary E. Thurtell were married December 28, 1899, and that the marriage was recorded in Plymouth, Iowa. The source is FHL Number1404988. Mary was not living with her parents, Frank and Eva S. Thurtell, at the time of the 1900 U.S. Census. She and her husband are shown as the next family on the same page of the 1900 U.S. Census for Elkhorn Township, Plymouth County, Iowa (SD 11, ED 102, Sheet 5). Her husband, Walter Smith, is shown as age 31, born in England in March 1869, and head of the household. He is a farmer who owns his farm but has a mortgage. The census shows that he had immigrated to the United States in 1874 and had lived in the country for 26 years but does not show that he had become a naturalized citizen. His wife is shown as Mary E. Smith, age 23 and born in December 1876 in Wisconsin, with both of her parents born in Wisconsin. The census shows that Walter and Mary Smith had been married 0 years and that she was the mother of 0 children. Living with them are Walter Smith's parents and sister. His father is James Smith, a farmer born in June 1835 in England and age 64 years old, and his mother is Lucy Smith, born in April 1839 in England and age 61. Both of them had immigrated to the United States in 1874 and had lived in the country 26 years. Only James Smith is shown as a naturalized U.S. citizen. They had been married 44 years, and both parents of both of them were also born in England. Walter Smith's sister is Lucy Smith, who is shown as single, age 21, born in New York in April 1874, and whose occupation is shown as at home. Mary and Walter Smith are listed in the 1920 U.S. Census for Plymouth County, Iowa (SD11, ED 127, Page 4B, Line 67) which shows them living on Dover Street, Kinglsey Town, Garfield Township, Plymouth County, Iowa. Walter Smith is shown as age 50, born in England as were both his parents, immigrating to the United States in 1900 and becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1907. It shows Walter Smith is employed as a clerk in a grocery store and owns the home where the family lives. MarySmith, his wife, is shown as age 43, with her place of birth and that ofher parents shown as unknown. All six of their children are shown as born in Iowa. Their daughter Margaret, age 18 or 19, is shown as single and a clerk in a Soft Drink (P???). The soundex shows her age as 18, andthe census could be either 18 or 19. The last word of the industry in which she works is very hard to read. Their daughter Florence Smith is shown as age 17. Both Margaret and Florence are shown as not having attended school since September 1, 1919. Gilbert, age 15, Edward, age13, and Mary E., age 6, are all shown as in school. Their youngest daughter, Dorothy, age 4, is not yet in school. Walter Smith's mother, Lucy Smith, is a widow, aged 82 and born in England as were both herparents. The 1920 census shows she immigrated to the United States in 1940, probably meaning 1900 which was also inaccurate, and that she was not a United States citizen.

In the U.S. Census for 1900 for Iowa (Volume 60, ED 102, SD 11, Sheet 5,Line 71) Olive E. Thurtell is shown as age 22, born in Wisconsin inOctober 1877, living in Elkhorn Township, Plymouth County, Iowa, with herparents, Frank and Eva S.

Family information showed she was born in Webster County, Iowa, and thather nickname was Ollie. A database of Bureau of Land Management Records for Meade County, SouthDakota, was found on the internet in July 1999 atftp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/sd/meade/land/mead-t.txt. Thisdatabase lists a Belle Travis obtaining land May 8, 1901, in Meridian 7,Township 006N, Range 009E, Section 31, of 160 acres, type 251101(Homestead), Case Type patent, document identification number 2390.There is another listing in this database for Amy Belle Travis obtainingland May 29, 1913, in Meridian 7, Township 007N, Range 006E, Section 20,of 160 acres, type 251101 (Homestead), Case Type patent, documentidentification number 337982. These two listings pertain to BelleThurtell Travis, who was widowed prior to 1901. This same database has alisting for Heirs of Olive E. Thurtell obtaining land June 11, 1912, inMeridian 7, Township 007N, Range 006E, Section 20, of 160 acres, type251101 (Homestead), Case Type patent, document identification number273698. This listing pertains to this Olive E. Thurtell. The file from the above homestead record shows that Olive E. Thurtell wassingle at the time she originally made her homestead application. Shehad originally been approved for a homestead for the North East Quarterof Section Fifteen, Township Five North, of Range 6 East, Black HillsMeridian, having filed for this homestead on September 7, 1904, H. E.Number 8705. She made her settlement on this land and erected a houseand then learned that the exact same property had been granted as ahomestead on August 22, 1904, H. E. Number 8661, to a Martha Berkvam.Olive Thurtell was then approved after delays lasting several months fora second homestead since she had had to relinquish the first one. Thesecond homestead was for 160 acres in the Northwest Quarter of Section 20in Township 7 North of Range 6 East, Black Hills Meridian, HomesteadEntry Number 0391. Her homestead affidavit signed October 30, 1905,showed she was Olive E. Thurtell of Sturgis, So. Dak., over 21 years ofage and a single woman. She signed the registry return receipt fordelivery of paperwork on March 15, 1906, as Olive E. Thurtell, and beganliving on her homestead in March 1906, with a home built on the land atthat time. She apparently married Charles E. Thomas shortly afterwards,and he moved to her homestead, giving up the homestead claim he hadpreviously filed himself. Olive Thurtell Thomas died in 1906 per familyrecords. The paperwork completed in 1911 by Charles E. Thomas as theheir of Olive E. Thurtell showed that he had continued living at thehomestead after the death of his wife, Olive, and that as of November 15,1911, he was married with three children. The same affidavit showed thathe was age 36, with a post office address of Vale, South Dakota, and thathe was born in Maine. By 1911 he had about 110 acres of the land untercultivation and improvements valued at $1500. The land patent number273698 was finally approved June 11, 1912. The afffidavits to supportCharles Thomas' claim were all completed on November 15, 1911, in Newell,Butte County, South Dakota, within the Belle fourche land district, thenearest and most accessible qualified officer in the district in whichthe land is located. The file also contains the affidavit of PeterFelion, age 57, of Vale, South Dakota, who lived on the adjoining landand confirmed that he had known Charles Thomas for about 5 1/2 years andthe land for 25 years and confirmed that the original entrywoman was deadand that her husband, Charles Thomas, had not been absent from thehomestead and had over 100 acres under cultivation, and that he was notrelated to the claimant. An affidavit from John S. McGill, age 55 years,of Vale, South Dakota, confirmed he lived on the land just across theroad and that he had known the claimant and the land about six years andthat Charles Thomas had about 100 acres under cultivation and that he wasnot related to the claimant. Jane Ward advised in January 2000 that her records showed that OliveThurtell was born October 6, 1879, in Lewisburg, Meade County, Wisconsin,and died October 9, 1906. This record of hers listed no sources.Lewisburg, Wisconsin, is in Grant County, Wisconsin, and is probablywhere she was born. Meade County, South Dakota, is where she died. Shealso advised that she showed that Olive's grandson was the personal pilotto the governor of South Dakota. Their Meade County, South Dakota, marriage certificate shows Olive E.Thurtell (shown also as Olive B Thurtell in the same document), age 28,and Charles E. Thomas, age 30, both of Sturgis, Meade County, SouthDakota, were married December 28, 1905, in Sturgis by a minister, J. S.Dimwitt (that's what the last name looks like, but it could be Dimmitt orsomething similar). Witnesses were Mary M. Newell and D. J. Newell.They got their license December 27, 1905, and the record was filedJanuary 6, 1906. Her death certificate confirms Olive E. Thomas, a married white femaleage 28, died October, 9, 1906, in Sturgis, Meade County, South Dakota.The cause of death was Puerperal Eclampia. The medical certifier was J.H. Naftzger, MD, and the death certificate was filed November 1, 1906, onPage 1, Book A, in Meade County, South Dakota. There is no record of a baby born to Olive and Charles Thomas on file ineither Meade County or at the state office based on a search done inJanuary and February 2000. However, the cause of death almost certainlymeans Olive had a baby. Information that had been received from RobertJohnson as part of a family record showed Olive Thurtell was stillborn.It seems quite likely that it was her baby that was stillborn, since theonly child living with Charles E. Thomas and his second wife by the 1910census was born after Olive Thurtell Thomas died.

The census record shows Tony Thertell as a married white male age 37 who owns his own home but has a mortgage. It shows he was born in Iowa but that his parents were both born in Russia with a mother tongue of Hebrew, like the parents of his neighbors (obviously an error). It shows his occupation as a laborer with the city. His wife's name looks like Rouse W. Thertell in the census, which shows her as a married white female born in Iowa whose mother was born in Iowa and father was born in Indiana. The census record shows they could both read, write, and speak English. Their daughter, Thelma Thertell, is shown as a single white female age 6 who is in school and who was born in Iowa, as were both her parents.

His daughter, Olive, is 2 and born in Wisconsin. His son, Frank, is 1and born in Wisconsin. The census record itself shows that Frank Thurtell is a farmer, with his father born in England and his mother in Canada.

Thurtell, age 44, was born in Wisconsin in November 1855, and the census shows her father was born in Pennsylvania and her mother in England. The census shows they have been married 25 years and that she is the mother of 12 children, of whom 10 are living. His daughter, Olive E. Thurtell, age 22, was born in Wisconsin in October 1877, and her occupation is shown as at home. Their seven younger children were all born in Iowa. Edward B. Thurtell, age 19, was born in March 1889 according to the census soundex, but the last digit of the year is hard to read in the census itself and probably should be 1881. He is shown as a farm laborer. Anthony, age 16, was born in March 1884. Robert L., age14, was born in January 1886. Carson, age 10, was born in July 1889.

The marriage certificate for Frank Thurtell and Mary Smith shows they were married in Sioux City, Woodbury County, Iowa, on June 4, 1920, and the record was filed July 12, 1920. The groom is shown as age 69 and born in Wisconsin, and the bride is shown as age 31 and born in Mapleton, Iowa. During the 1999 Thurtell Family Reunion Frank Thurtell's daughters, Dorothy Thurtell Richardson, and May Thurtell Thomas, advised that Frank and his second wife, Mary May Thurtell, separated about 1927 or 1928 in Jefferson, South Dakota. She had told her daughters that they were divorced, but neither of them had ever seen divorce papers nor were they sure at all that there was any divorce. Dorothy Richardson recalled that Frank Thurtell was hospitalized for quite a while, probably about six months, at St. Joseph Hospital, Sioux City, Iowa, before his death, and that she had visited him there.
