Notes for Irene Louise THURTELL

Much of the information is from the 1963 Thurtell Family History that may have been done by Irene Peters, as well as from the History of the Thurtell Family compiled by Susan Persia Thurtell about 1968.

Irene Thurtell Foresman Peters was very interested in the Thurtell family history and corresponded with James L. Buck, Birds Eye Foods Ltd., Hobland Hall, Hobland, Great Yarmouth, England, in the mid 1960's, who did Thurtell research for her.

Her husband and son sent a note to Janet and Henry Leroy Thurtell about her death. She and her husband had visited Denver, Colorado, about 1966, the first time in about 40 years that she and her first cousin, Henry Leroy Thurtell, had seen each other.

The Wisconsin birth index confirms that Irene L. Thurtell was born December 20, 1900, in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.

The 1910 U.S. Census Soundex for Michigan (030 0056 0270) shows Irene Thurtell to be age 9 and born in Wisconsin. It shows her living with her parents, Herbert and Carrie Thurtell, her brother Howard age 16, and her sister Helen age 14, in Traverse City, Grand Traverse County, Michigan.

Irene Thurtell is listed as age 19 and born in Wisconsin and living with her parents, Herbert and Carrie Thurtell, in Benton Harbor, Berrien County, Michigan, in the 1920 U.S. Census Soundex for Michigan (Vol. 9, E.D. 76, Sheet 7, Line 33).

Social Security records for Social Security number 360-22-2867 confirm that Irene L. Peters was born December 20, 1900, and died in October 1970. She had filed for Social Security disability benefits in May 1960 at the Social Security office in Benton Harbor, Michigan, and received benfits from April 1960 until her death.
