Notes for Harriet THURTELL

The entry about Ransom B. Folts in a 1901 Grant County, Wisconsin,
biographical record shows his wife's sister, Harriet Thurtell, was the
wife of Hugh Cattnach of Minnesota.

She is listed in the 1880 U.S. Census for the Town of Jamestown, Grant
County, Wisconsin (SD 2, ED 110, Page 3), enumerated June 2, 1880, as
Harriet Thurtle, age 23, born in Wisconsin, single, attending school in
the prior yearn, living with her widowed mother, Anna Thurtle, and her
siblings Frederick, age 25, a miner, Grace, age 21, and Belle, age 19,
whose occupation is teaching school.

She is listed in the 1900 U.S. Census for Minnesota as Hattie Cattnach,
born in Wisconsin in December 1856 and age 43 living in Fairmont Village,
Martin County, Minnesota (Volume 32, ED 165, Sheet 13 for Martin County,
Minnesota). It shows she and her husband have been married 18 years and
that she is the mother of eight children, all of whom are still living.
The census shows her father was born in England and her mother in North
Carolina. Living with her and listed as head of the household is her
husband, Hugh Cattnach, who is 40 and was born in February 1860 in
Canada, with his father born in Scotland and his mother in Canada. The
census shows he immigrated to the United States in 1870 and had lived in
the United States 30 years and that he was a naturalized U.S. citizen.
His occupation is shown as day laborer, and the census shows he had no
months when he was not employed. He rented the house where he and his
family lived. Also living with them are their children. Their son
Albert Cattnach is 17 and was born in Iowa in February 1883, and his
occupation is shown as delivery boy. Their son Leslie Cattnach is 15 and
was born in North Dakota in February 1885. Their son Lynn Cattnach is 13
