Thomas Thurston was born about 1792, Albemarle County, VA., died in Midway, Boone County, MO. He married Elizabeth Watson on 11/25/1825, Albemarle Co., VA. She is supposedly the daughter of Walter Watson and Nancy (Elizabeth?) Naylor, and was born in Prince Georges Co., MD. Their children that I know of were: John Wesley, James Wyatt, William A., George Thomas, and Mary. See more to follow.
John Wesley Thurston: b. 12-4-1829, Albemarle Co., VA; d. 8-4-1912, Boone Co., MO; md. Mary Frances "Fanny" Elliott, 2-25-1858. I have found two locations for their marriage and don't know which is correct - one is (Perche?) Boone County, the other is Lexington, KY. Which is correct? They had these children: Ralph E.; Amanda L.; John L.; Noah M.; Mary F.; Elza R. (is this correct or could it possibly have been Eliza or Elizabeth?); and Hollis H.
James Wyatt Thurston: b. 1-4-1832, Albemarle Co., VA; d. 2-10-1903, Boone Co., MO. He married twice; once to Cynthia F. Clarke on 1-30-1854, Albemarle Co. They had these children (the only data I have is initials; would appreciate full names and sex of these individuals).
M. A.; T. E.; S. B.; C. F.; Q. C.; and T. C. The name of James' other wife was Mary ?. I don't know if he and Mary had children or whether Mary or Cynthia was his first wife.
William A. Thurston: B. 7-23-1836, Albemarle Co., VA, d. about 1861, Boone Co., MO. Supposedly married Acena Watson, dtr. of ?? on ???
George Thomas Thurston: B. 1-16-1839, Albemarle Co., VA; d. 4-27-1914, Columbia, Boone Co., MO. Md. Elizabeth Virginia Caruthers, on 2-5-1861. She was born 1-15-1840, Boone Co., MO, d. 12-13-1872, Midway, Boone Co., MO. She was the daughter of John Caruthers and Ann R. or N. Martin Caruthers. There children were: Lilla B., b. 1-11-1862, Midway, d. 1-6-1872, Midway; Anna Cora, b. 6-8-1863, Midway; d. 9-7-1888, Midway; Georgia Cenie, b. 9-25-1864, Midway, d. 2-2-1950, Columbia, Boone Co., MO. (Was her formal name Acena?); William M., b. 7-20-1866, Midway; died about 1926 (supposedly in Portland, Oregon. LDS SS Index does not show his death in Oregon); Effie May, b. 2-12-1868, Columbia, Boone Co., MO, d. 7-24-1962, Alhambra, Los Angeles, CA, buried 7-28-1962 Forest Lawn Cemetery, LA, CA; Thomas E. Thurston, b. 9-12-1869, Midway, d. 5-29-1927, Boone Co., MO., md. Myrtle M. Slater 11-29-1899 (also has been shown as Martel M. Slater/Slaton on 11-27-1899, which is correct?)
QUESTION: I found record of an additional marriage for the above George Thomas Thurston, to a "Mary Frances Watson Hudson, nickname "Molly," b. about 1853, Midway, d. 9-6-1911, Midway, Boone Co., MO. She supposedly was the daughter of Benjamin Naylor Watson and Wealthy Rundell. Was George married also to Molly? Did they have a daughter, Minnie Pearl Thurston, b. 7-25-1878, Columbia, Boone Co., MO and who died 2-2-1964 (place unknown). Minnie married Charles Eubank on 11-13-1902. Did they move to Albemarle?
Any additional information would be appreciated. Thanks.
Benjamin Naylor Watson, b. 5-18-1792, Prince George Co., MD, d. 5-29-1847, Boone Co., MO, Md. 10-3-1822, Albemarle Co., VA. (He would have been a brother to GTT's mother, Elizabeth.) His parents were Walter Watson, b. about 1760, Prince Georges County, MD., Md. 12-23-1783, PGC MD, d. about 1855 Albemarle Co., VA, and Nancy Ann Naylor., b. about 1755 PGC MD, d. 12-30-1838, Albemarle Co., VA. Walter Watson's father was shown as: James Watson, b. about 1734 PGC MD, d. before September 1793 PGC MD. No mother shown. Nancy Ann Naylor's father was shown as Batson Naylor, b. about 1729, MD., d. before 6-28-1769, PGC MD, his mother was Margaret Fields, b. about 1724 in MD.
Mary Thurston: b. about 1843, Albemarle Co., VA. I had not found a record of her being a child of Thomas Thurston and Elizabeth Watson previously. I found this record on the LDS On-Line Ancestral File, AFN: XFQD-JJ, which gave the names of Elizabeth's parents as Walter Watson and Nancy Ann Naylor.
