1810 US Census in Iredell, North Carolina
1810 US Census in Iredell, North Carolina
*There is no numeral 1 for John, age 50. We assume this is a transcription error. "Three copies of most federal censuses were created. The local census taker first created a draft copy as he walked from house to house to question the residents. He later copied by hand a second draft for the state, and a third copy for the federal government. Copying errors often resulted in slight differences between the various copies." -FamilySearch.org

Elijah Marlow was the son of Mark Marlow

1880 US Census record for Joseph Brutsché.
1880 US Census record for Joseph Brutsché.
In Denison, Grayson, Texas. Both of Joseph's parents are recorded as having been born in France, instead of Germany and Switzerland. This could have been driven by antipathy towards Germans in Texas following the Civil War, during which many Germans refused to fight on behalf of the Confederacy, because they had emigrated from Germany to escape conscription and were opposed to slavery on religious grounds.

This desire to be not-German could also explain the pronunciation change from 'BROOT-shee' to 'bru-SHAY,' as bru-SHAY might more easily have been seen as a French surname. Our grandmother, Jeanette Brutsché, led us to believe she was of French ancestry, perhaps she did not even know of her German heritage.

Listing Charles E. DeCillo and his wife Margaret, with the same age and birthplace as Margaret Reynolds, correct ages of first marriages, (to each other) plus Margaret Reynolds' parents were in fact born in England and Ireland. So either Charles remarried his first wife Margaret, or perhaps never divorced her.

A 1903 Thomas B. Jeffery Rambler, the model owned by Edward H. Strahorn
Thomas B. Jeffery started commercially mass-producing automobiles in 1902 and by the end of the year had produced 1,500 motorcars, one-sixth of all existing motorcars up to that point. The Thomas B. Jeffery Company was the second largest auto manufacturer in America, behind Oldsmobile. 1,350 additional automobiles were produced in 1903, so Edward's #2337 was likely produced in 1903. Mr. Jeffery boarded the ship RMS Lusitania on 1 May 1915 to travel to France to discuss a contract for the sale of Jeffery Armored Cars. He survived the sinking of the Lusitania, and reflecting on his escape, decided to step back and enjoy the remainder of his life pursuing travel and leisure. So in 1916 he sold out to the Nash company, and the combined enterprise was renamed Nash Rambler, which was eventually merged with Hudson Motors in 1954 to create American Motors Corporation.

This is the oldest house in present-day Arendtsville, built in the late 1700s, and it is within the property owned by Bernhard b.1740 during the 1780s. We cannot say for certain that Bernhard lived here, but it is a strong possibility. The house is located on High street, just north of Queen St.
