Fearon and Thomas Edgar Thorsby
Thomas E. Thorsby's WWI draft registration

Birth 27 MAY 1888 • Montrose, Genesee, Michigan, United States Death 21 DEC 1943 • Montrose, Genesee, Michigan, United States

The name Thomas appears in the family history quite often. It is relevant to me because Thomas Ed Thorsby was my grandfather. He was born May 27, 1888 in Montrose Twp, Genesee County, Michigan. He was married to Effie Alexander and lived in Montrose, Michigan.

They lived in a farm house built by Effie's father, Fred Alexander, sometime in the 1800's. The land it was built on was purchased in 1883. The house was added onto in 1890. The farm house is still in the Thorsby family and has now been certified as a Michigan Centennial Farm.

Like many families in the Montrose area at the time, they were farmers. For awhile they did live in Rose Center, MI near Holly, MI. They had two sons, Fearon and Lowell. Thomas died in 1943 of pneumonia. The funeral was held in the living room of their farm house. Effie died in 1982. Fearon died in 1997. Lowell is still alive and lives nearby Lowell's wife Helen passed away several years ago.
