My name is Ron Hamilton and I live in Woodley, Cheshire, England.
One of my relatives visited Thomas Ashworth in 1910. Thomas was living at
North Payette and he was a fruit farmer. His wife was called Ella and they
had the following children who were all born in Idaho:
Elizabeth L Ashworth
Robert L Ashworth
Jeffrey W Ashworth
Edward Therndike Ashworth
Both Thomas and Ella were born in England and by 1910 they were at Payette
with two very young children.
I am seeking any information at all regarding this family and the farm. I
suspect that they may have married in North Payette. I cannot find a
marriage in England. Hopefully, a descendant of theirs may be doing family
research and contact me.
It would be nice to find their marriage. Learn the maiden name of Ella.
Trace their arrival in the USA. I have searched ships lists but not found
anyone I can say is Thomas. I did find my relative arriving in 1910 and
naming Thomas as his friend and final destination.
By 1930 Thomas had moved to Butte City, Silver Bow, Montana, but it is the
early period of their life in the USA that I am interested in.
Regards to all,
Hello Ron Hamilton, in England!
I know living members of the Payette Ashworth family, and I will contact
them for you. One lady told me Ashworth was an English name. I'm not aware of
any of them being genealogists, but I'll ask what they know about the early
I can get Thomas Ashworth's American Naturalization information for you this
week, if you want it. I can check the courthouse to see what else is there
I recommend you check these Payette related websites for yourself:
Look at the Western States Marrriage Record Index and
the Idaho State Death Index, 1911-1956 on this site.
Payette GenWeb is an excellent resource:
On this site I found a Rev. Thomas Ashworth, rector of Payette's Episcopal
church. I found mention of his coming from Butte, Montana to conduct a Payette
funeral in 1914.
I'll get back to you when I find more about this family. Mrs. Gerrie
