62 "John Richard THOMAS was born in 1838, at Richmond, Kentucky, married Mary Jane COOMBE in 1861, at Macon, Illinois, and died November 15, 1916, at Beaver, Oklahoma. He was a member of the Congregational Church and the Masonic Lodge. His wife, Mary Jane COOMBE, was born at Newton Abbot, Devonshire, England, and came with her parents to the United States when she was twelve. She was confirmed in the Church of England and later became a member of the First Christian Church in Beaver.

To this union were born ten children; John Coombe (died in infancy); Louella Mary Elizabeth; Clara Belle; Annie Laurie; Selina Almira; Nettie May; Margaret Aronia (Ora); William Hayes; Arthur Garfield, and Maude Omega.

The family moved from Illinois to Missouri, where they operated a hotel and store. When these were destroyed by fire they moved to Kansas, and from there to Beaver in the spring of 1887. The five youngest children accompanied them to Oklahoma while the four eldest remained in Missouri.

In 1869 Mr. THOMAS was commissioned postmaster at Green Ridge, Missouri serving as postmaster for twelve years and holding the same office at Beaver for sixteen. He served in the Union Army for four years during the Civil War and was a member of General GRANT's personal bodyguard at Vicksburg. His love for his country and the flag was one of the strongest principles of his life.

He lived the life of a pioneer practically all of his days, being among the early settlers of Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. He knew what it was to undergo the privations of a pioneer, and for a time he had to make a living for his family by hunting game for the wholesale market with his two young sons, but he never gave up and was known by all as a man whose word was as good as his bond. He was kind, honorable, broadminded and generous to a fault.

His wife, Mary Jane, was a typical pioneer mother. Her genial, friendly manner and motherly nature won the good will and affection of all who knew her. Ties of friendship were close in those days when the early settlers had to depend on each other in times of trouble. Her cares and prayers were not in vain for she lived to see her family of boys and girls grown to manhood and womanhood, well educated, respected and successful citizens". Written by Eleanor Tracy.

He never took lessons. He played the violin and many reed instruments. He would hear it and be able to play it. Lyman was an alcoholic and drifted around a lot. He was also a foundryman and owned his own company in Dallas, Texas at one time. He was stabbed to death in a rehab in San Antonio, Texas. " SMITHAM, Lyman Elgyin (I6153)

Paul DUPUY's wife was an accomplished pianist as evidenced by this article published on 6 May 1899: " Mrs. Paul DUPUY of San Antonio is visiting Captain Ditto's family for a few days, prior to visiting friends at her former home at Boardman. Mrs. DUPUY is reported to be one of the most accomplished pianists in the state".

Her death was reported in the Ocala Evening Star on 26 October 1901. "The body of Mrs. Paul Richard DUPUY was brought to Boardman Thursday, October 24, from San Antonio for interment in the Catholic cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. DUPUY were members of one of the oldest families in the community, having come here many years ago, a young couple from Louisiana. They settled with a number of Louisianians at what is known as the Point on Orange Lake. Their home was in the midst of a fine wild budded grove previous to the freeze of 1894.

87 "There is some doubt about the birth date of the Beck's third child, Mary Ann. The family bible has 1813, but a stone at her grave says 1812. If she was born in 1813 it would appear likely she arrived after the family reached Guernsey Cove. Likely the ship taking the family reached P.E.I. in May since ship owners were anxious to start as early as possible to make two voyages before winter arrived again. Actually births at sea were far from unknown. The women of those days appear to have been a tough breed." ( J. Vere BECK, May 1982) BECK, Mary Ann (I114)

91 "WIDDICOMBE-IN-THE-MOOR. On Thursday last the remains of Mr. Henry CAUNTER, of Ponsworthy Farm, were interred in Widdicombe Churchyard, an the corpse and mourners conveyed thirther in a hearse and mourning coach. After the funeral it seems that the drivers (or at all events, the driver of the coach) partook much too freely of the refreshments provided, for after leaving Ponsworthy, on the return home to Ashburton, the coach was upset twice, and its inmates - a Mrs. NORRISH and a Miss PENNY - much injured. The former had her shoulder bone broken, and the latter her hip dislocated. They were lodged in some houses near at hand, and the following morning taken to their houses at Ashburton in a cart."

93 "William TURGOOSE was born in Lincolnshire, England. He first immigrated to Illinois, U.S.A. While there, he developed a horse trading business, ran a threshing machine and other agricultural pursuits. In 1861 he trekked across the plains to California in the covered wagon mode of those days. He arrived in Sacramento when that district was experiencing a flood. Hearing of the Cariboo gold strike he sold some of his horses. He kept four and landed with them in Victoria. He went to work with the horses on the old Esquimalt Road. After saving enough money, he sold his horses and headed for the Cariboo, where he bought interest in the famous Ruby Claim on Williams Creek. After two years he sold out his claims and came back to Victoria. and decided to settle in the District. He went out into Saanich and bought a farm originally owned by a H.B.C. doctor by the name of Tuzo. It was being then operated by a man named Fronton, probably on a rental basis, as he does not appear on a voters list of that period. This man planted a fifteen acre apple orchard. The farm consisted of five hundred acres and William TURGOOSE paid $10.00 an acre for it. The Northwest corner of this land is the centre of Saanichton. It stretched East to the Indian Reserve and South to the Michell farm. Part of it now is called the Saanichton Farm, while another part is owned by a grandson, Willard MICHELL.

After purchasing the farm, Turgoose made a trip to England, then back again to Illinois to marry his sweetheart, Emma POPE, then back to Saanich in 1865 to finally settle down. He bred purebred horses of the Morgan strain and introduced the Durham or Shorthorn breed of cattle. The progeny of the horses were in demand by the livery stables, while the progeny from his cattle became the foundation stock for many cattle ranchers. William TURGOOSE died in 1885, but his wife survived him till 1922. They had a family of seven children, one boy and six daughters. The first child, Fanny, remained a spinster. Emma married a building contractor by the name of MERKLEY. Annie married W. D. MICHELL of the pioneer Michell family. Carrie became Mrs. POPE. Mr. POPE was a sawmill man. Lottie was the wife of Bob STEWART, a miner. Winnie married Jack BROOKS, son of Henry James BROOKS, who had bought the old Deeks farm, or Logana Farm of years later. William TURGOOSE did not occupy any civic positions but he was keenly interested in the development of the district and gave land for the South Saanich School. The proviso of the gift was that it could only be used for educational purposes. The land still belongs to the school district, but the school itself was abandoned many years ago. There was a Post Office established at the Turgoose place, the forerunner of the Saanichton P.O." 
TURGOOSE, William (I2768)
 
94 "With regards the entry of the baptism of Thomas on 22 April 1779, the vicar made a mistake in the entry; it was written as follows: Thomas, son of William and AOWSWORTHY; he then added Ann before the surname, but did not correct the spelling of the surname." (Online parish clerk)

[There was another Thomas NOSWORTHY baptized in Widecombe in the Moor on 16 February 1779, an illegitimate child of a Mary NOSWORTHY. It is not known what happened to him. No record of a burial of a Thomas has been found to date. A Mary NOSWORTHY married John NOSWORTHY in Widecombe on 9 March 1788. He was reportedly a sojourner to the parish and a sailor. Two children were baptized to them in Widecombe in the Moor: John in 1789 and Jemima in 1790. Whether or not this Mary was the same Mary who gave birth to Thomas baptized 16 February of 1779 is unknown. Anne Brooks
NOSWORTHY, Thomas (I90)
 
95 "Without a baptism record, Thomas's parents remain unproved. The 1841 census supports the liklihood that he belongs in this family group based on the fact that Blanch MATTHEWS, age 72, and Blanch MATTHEWS, age 27, were in his home, as do the witnesses at his marriage to Grace, James and Blanch MATTHEWS. Also, the inclusion of "Harvey" as a middle name for his daughter, Joanna, helps to support this theory. (Anne Brooks)

Thomas and Grace immigrated to Adelaide, Australia, arriving 29 Oct 1847, on board The Duchess of
Northumberland
, from London. (J. Kilford)
