George Thurgood (1844 - 1928) Profile

George Thurgood

There are discrepancies in his year of birth.  His death certificate and obituary give his birth year as 1852, but the England and Wales Census, the 1900 Utah Census, the 1910 Utah Census, and the inscription on his gravestone show his year of birth as 1844, so this is the date we have shown.

He sailed to America on the ship Hudson in 1864, and his obituary and his death certificate both say that he also came to Utah the same yer.   Further research is needed to determine the name of the pioneer company he came to Utah with.

He purchased land in Salt Lake City, as recorded in Land Title Certificate, 1867, Lot 3, Blk 16, Plat G, Salt Lake City.
