Notes for George W. Alsop:


Please do a key word search for George Wallace,


b: 1869, NY, in London Pct, Lincoln Co, WA.  Image 4




The image comes up with:


Wallace, George (farmer) b: Apr 1869, NY  f: born: Eng m: born: NY


Augusta b:  Aug 1870  WA 3/3 children md 11 yrs
Ethel F. b: Apr 1890  WA  
Georgia b: Feb 1897 WA (Found the third child!)
Herbert b: Jan 1900 WA  




This family exactly fits that of George W. Alsop (Alsup) born Otsego, NY

Generation 2 (con’t)


See 1880, Otsego, NY, & 1910, 1920 Idaho.




I think we should post this!




This started with an Arizona Index check. I found Robert, b: 1931, son of Herbert.


Herbert claimed he was born in Yakima, WA, 1900. So I back-tracked to this.




With this 1900 Census, the only fly is supposedly George married a Ellie Mae Mueller.


I cannot find her anywhere.




Looking at the data one more time, I wonder if his name was George Wallace Alsop?



Notes for Augusta Anna Boyle:


Emmett, Idaho, March 14– (Special)–Mrs. George Alsop, 60, committed suicide early today by plunging headfirst into a shallow well at the family home, for miles west of Emmett. The act was said to have been the result of melancholia from which she had suffered all winter.


Her husband and daughter found her body doubled up in 20 inches of water in a five-foot well near the house. The wel was so narrow that hte pump had to be removed before the body could be lifted out. Mrs. Alsop had taken a board from the well platform and dived through the opening.
