From a letter from Dr. Joseph Soll Turley:

“His son Frederick had three daughters: Amelia, who was tall and stately and carried herself like a queen, who married a furniture-store owner and carter in Riverside; they have no children but adopted a very handsome boy who grew to be 6′ 3″ in height. She was very friendly with my brother who was about the same age and was familiarly known as ‘Milly.’ Her younger sisters were twins but one of them was very short and the other one tall, named Rosella and Arzilla. One of them married a Mr. Johndrew and both lived side by side in Colton. Their husbands worked at the limestone mine and cement plant just west of Colton. Frederick died suddenly at age 45 [42] in Beaver; he was making hay and sweating on a hot day but sat down to eat his lunch, leaned against a damp haycock, caught cold, and died within three days of what was called ‘quick consumption’ but was probably flu or pneumonia.”
