toward building up that place. Both members of the Methodist
church, and he mostly supported the preaching and Sunday-school ;
was a class leader and steward of the church. He owned a large
farm, well fenced with cedar, large barn, and good house, with all
conveniences and comforts, and taking the " Western fever " in the
spring of 1872, started for the west with a team, and was joined at
Rome, Wis., by his son-in-law Frank Gifford. They traveled to Deer


Lodge, Montana, where Gifford sold out his interest in the team and
outfit to his father-in-law, and returned home. Mr. Thurston contin-
ued on to Oregon, Washington, and back to Utah, where he sold his
team and outfit, and returned home, but not to be contented, for his
children were in Nebraska. He subsequently sold his comfortable
home at a great sacrifice, and went there, too. The second year of
his life in Ord he had two spans of horses stolen by the famous
" Doc. Middleton " gang of horse thieves that infested Nebraska,
who were captured a few years later, his crops were destroyed by the
grasshoppers, — but is not sorry he located there. His second mar-
riage was not a happy one, and they are divorced, 1891 settled
in Wilber, Neb., where he has property. Mrs. Gifford says, " Of my
mother I cannot speak too highly. Coining to Wisconsin when the
country was new, and her children small, she had to endure many
privations and hardships, which she bore with patience, true christian
fortitude, and trust in Christ as her Saviour. She was always cheer-
ful, and beloved by all. Her house was always a home for the min-
ister. She had been a member of the church for more than fifty
years, and died in the triumphs of faith."
