I am searching for Thruza Barrett, daughter of Andrew (?) Barrett and Sarah Frantonwood. Thurza was born October 30, 1838, in Cedar Co., PA, the youngest of 14 children. Later she moved with her parents to Clearfield, PA, and in 1863, she was married to Simon H. Mason. Two years later, they came to Wisconsin, as far as La Crosse by train and from there to Eau Claire by boat. Thruza died Feb 4, 1940 at the age of 101. I believe that she was married in Clearfield. Simon Mason had another son named Curtis who stayed in PA. He came to WI to preach to the Indians and may have been a Methodist minister. I would appreciate information on any of these people.
