Honoring the marriage of Charles J. Thorp & Clara C. Peterson
Charles J. Thorp is my 1st cousin 3 times removed. He’s the son of Monson Thorp, Jr. (my 2nd great granduncle) and Eudora Louise Searls. He married Clara C. Peterson on 3 Jun 1899 in Spokane, Spokane Co., Washington.
Charles worked as a Merchant at a woodyard, a Foreman at a dairy farm and as a Laundryman at a laundry, according to the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census records.
He and Clara had the following children: Monson, born 1900, Perry E., born 1903, Glenn H., born about 1915, Verris, born 1917 and Wayne M. born about 1922.
I have not yet located a death record for Charles Thorp. However, he is enumerated in the 1930 census and by 1940, Clara is living with two of her sons, Monson and Wayne, and listed as a widow.
