General Notes: Husband - Olaf Haraldsson

According to medieval historian, Snorii Sturluson, Olav's father, King Harald I (Haarfagre/Fairhair), bestowed the title of "King" to his sons and divided the land between them to rule.

He was also called "Olav of Viken" and "Olaf Geirstatha-Alf." The name of his wife is unknown.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------
He took over Westfold in 930 after brother Bjørn was slain by brother Erik. He raised Guthroth Bjørnsson as a foster child.
He had taken over Ranrike in about 900 after brother Guthorm was slain by Solvi Klofi.
After his father, King Harald Fairhair, died in 933 and brother Erik "Bloodaxe" took over, he and bother Sigroth agreed to meet the next spring in Tonsberg. Erik summoned a great force and sailed to Tonsberg and killed both Olaf and Sigroth in a battle in the hills east of town.

General Notes: Husband - Turchetil De Harcourt, Seigneur De Turqueville

Turchetil, Sire de Harcourt, Normandy; fl. 1024; presumably kin of [English Harcourt descendants]. [Burke's peerage]

-----------------------------

Curt Hofemann, curt_hofemann AT yahoo.com, wrote in a post-em:

Turchetil de HARCOURT, Seigneur de Turqueville [Ref: Turton (prob using Burke's)]

Turketil de TURQUEVILLE [Ref: Watney p99]

Turquetil Seigneur de TURQUETIL et de TANQUERAYE. His name has been spelt Turchil, Turketil, Turkel, Turkeul, Turquetal, Torkel, Torketil, Torchetil, Thorkil, Thorkel, Thurkild, Turquetil, Thorchetil, etc. It is a Danish name meaning Thor's Kettle or Cauldron. Turchetil de Neufmarche was his namesake. Turchetil III Baron De Tourville, Seigneur de Tourville and de Tanqueray.

Turquetil, seigneur de Turqueville, and de Tanqueraye, about 1001, appears in several charters concerning the abbeys of Fecamp and Bernay. He was lord of Neufmarche-en-Lions, governor of the boy duke, William... Turquetil was the second son of Torf, the son of Bernard the Dane... Turquetil, Turqueville or Tanqueraye, de Neufmarche, second son. died about 1036. He married Anceline, sister of Turstain of Montfort-sur-Risle. [Ref: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~pmcbride/james/f030.htm#I1402X2]

Research note: can Turqueville also be Torville? Watney lists his father as Torf "the Rich" de HARCOURT, Seigneur de Torville & states he built the castle of Torville in 955. McBride shows Tourville. Is this French vs English for the same placename?

death: was treacherously assassinated between 1035 and 1040 by hirelings of Raoul de Gace... Murdered along with three other governor's of the young William future King of England. [Ref: McBride] (I show 1027, unfortunately I didn't identify the source, but it was apparently more solid than McBride or I would have replaced it as per McBride).

Regards,
Curt

Note: I find both a Turlaville & a Turqeville near Cherbourg, Normandy. I don't know whether the names are anglicized or not.

Medical Notes: Husband - Joseph Gerald Harper

Heart disease, Diabetes


General Notes: Wife - Florence Ellen McGregor

[v05t3833.ftw]

The following is a letter she wrote to her children and grandchildren in the early 1950's.

I think every ones life has something of special interest to someone, not to everyone perhaps but to a special few. Mine will have no interest to anyone but my children and mayb my grandchildren and what I write is for them.

It is easy for me to live in retrospect, all old people are like that. I think it is because so much more of life is in the past than in the future.

I was born in Montgomery County, Tennessee near the little village of Woodlawn. I was the 11th child of thirteen. My father was William Bartlett McGregor he was of Scotch Irish descent, mother was Ruth Ellen Shrader was German I suppose but her forbears were from Holland. My earliest recollection is of moving from Montgomery County to Stewart County when I was 3 years old. I was very much afraid of horses then and that fear has lasted until now, we moved in a wagon and I cried most of the way and begged them to let me walk. We lived about 1 mile from grandpa McGregors and one of the pleasantest things that I remember about my childhood is the times that I would go there to spend a week, often two of my cousins would go there at the same time I did. I never remember to have gone just for the day. there was an attic with some trunks and boxes in them were old dresses, hoop skirts, bussels, and every thing a little girl would like to dress up in. Also hats and pins, paint, gloves. We were very fine ladies when we got dressed up in them.

I can remember very clearly all the things about grandpa's house. There weretwo rooms in front with an open hall between a porch in front an ell running back for dining room and kitchen. Two rooms and hall upstairs. The parlor was never used except when company came. It was papered with white ground with blue fans on it- three in a cluster one wide open and two partly closed with ribbon streamers. On the floor was a handsome reversable red and green carpet, a library table, a bed and dresser chairs. Grandma's room was where we stayed and to me it was a wonderful place especially in the winter. There was a rag carpet on the floor, a wardrobe, dresser, and small table, a bed, and plenty of chairs. The dresser had three little drawers on top and occasionally I was allowed to stand on a chair and look at all the things in two of them much to my delight. I can't recall a thing that was in them, but one drawer I never looked in- that was gradndpa's- he kept his razor and a lot of other things that we weren't to touch. Grandpa was quite a character- he died when I was seven- but I can remember that I was mortally afraid to displease him. His word was the law in his household- no one crossed him that I ever heard of. I can see the family now in my mind as they gathered around the fire. The room would be so warm and cozy. My two maiden aunts, Uncle Eddie Duncan- a nephew of grandma's, grandpa and grandma, some reading, the girls sewing or knitting- old Shep lying by the fire- my that was the life.

The dining room had a fireplace and in the winter the fire never went out. On one side of the fireplace there was a cupboard one opened in the dining room. The other in the kitchen. That old cupboard smelled better than any place in the world to me. There was almost always a piece of boiled ham, a bowl of cooked dried fruit, teacakes and preserves in it. It had double doors top and bottom. There was a small barrel of sugar, a bag of coffee- green which had to be roasted and ground before using. Grandpa always bought his staple groceries in quantities.

Grandpa was a good provider, he hd everything to eat that the farm could produce and the things that couldn't be produced on the farm he bought with the farm products that he sold . He was twice married, his first wife- my fathers and Aunt Elizabeth's mother- was Sarah Allen. She died of cholera in 1935 when Aunt Elizabeth was six weeks old, pa was three years old.
