Charles Fuller Frizzell Jr(1896-1978).--My 4C2R

Charles Fuller Frizzell Jr. was the son of Charles Fuller Frizzell Sr. from my previous blog post and the grandson of the John Frizzell, Tennessee Supreme Court judge who is also mentioned in a previous blog post. Charles Jr. was born in Nashville and spent his earlier years there before the family moved to Atlanta and later New York.

In 1917 Charles was part of the 38th infantry and was promoted to 1st Lt. while in France. He received a distinguished service cross for his services in WWI in which he was several wounded, captured, and detained in a German prison camp. According to his military service card in Ancestry's New York Abstracts of WWI Military Service, 1917-1919, he was involved in the following engagements: Aisne, Champagne-Marne and Aisne-Marne. In 1919, he retired due to injuries he sustained while in service and returned to work as assistant agency superintendent of Royal Indemnity Company.

An article from 1945 notes that he was commanding officer of the Philadelphia Women's Army Corps Recruiting District until it was absorbed by the US Army Recruiting Service(1945) at which time he was appointed commanding officer over the US Army Recruiting Service of Eastern Pennsylvania

I was able to find an address for Charles Jr. for May 1950 in Ancestry's Pennsylvania, Veteran Compensation Application Files, WWII, 1950-1966. He filed this because he had went back into the Army from June 1942 to March 1946 during which time he worked in recruiting.  I took that address and Googled it and from there found it on Zillow(a real estate website) which included pictures of the home. It should be the same home, as the description given said that the home was built in 1930. Another address from the September 8th, 1918 edition of the New York Times Union Newspaper(at Newspaper.com) gave an address along with his name among those on the list of Prisoners of War. There is actually a history of that building on a website about New York Architecture. It's really interesting because the building was at one time, Headquarters for The Royal Insurance Company where Charles Sr. was Vice President at the time.

Charles F. Frizzell Jr. and his wife Phyllis Phillips Frizzell had 3 daughters--Phyllis, Rosemary, and Edith Lee.  Charles passed in 1978 and is buried in the Trinity Church Cemetery in Manhattan, New York along with family, and many other notable historical figures.

Note the three items I lived in the above graphic.  These are three interesting items that I didn't think about much having come from people who aren't world travelers(read that as farmers)  I really love this passenger list of US Citizens. Look at the information it contains!.  Ancestry also had pictures of the ship which happens to be the Mauretania, sister ship of the Lusitania. Charles' passport application contains a letter as well as a copy of the picture of he and Edith from his passport.

John Frizzell (1829-1894) My 2C4R

1856 The Home Journal (Winchester TN)


John Frizzell (1829-1894) My 2C4R

1829 Born in Bedford Co TN--Son of Nathan S Frizzell & Mary Jones
1841 Moved to Winchester, TN (Franklin Co)
1854 (23 Jul) Married Matilda Winford in Rutherford Co. TN
1854 Licensed to practice law 1854
Civil War volunteered 1st Tennessee Infantry (Turney's Regiment)
1868 Moved to Nashville TN
1883 Appointed as Referee Judge for East Tennessee
1894 Died and Buried in Mt Olivet Cemetery Nashville TN
President of the Nashville Grand Masonic Lodge.

My Most Recent Common Ancestor with John Frizzell is Nathan Frizzell and Margaret Deason, my 5th Great Grandparents.  While I've not identified a descendant of John among my matches I do have a DNA match at AncestryDNA who descends thru John's sister Martha Jane Frizzell.  That descendant would be my 6th cousin and shares a 12 cM segment.  The shared matches are all Frizzell /Deason descendants which makes it seem likely that the segment is from that couple.  My paternal grandmother who is a Frizzell  / Deason descendant is also buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Nashville.

Mary C Oursler's notations in the 1800 Meckenburg Co. NC Census



















While searching at Ancestry.com in the 1800 census for an Isaac Cook I came across 3 entries of the same person--two which appear to be copies of the original page(noted above and shown as the 2nd image below.)  These images are also at FamilySearch which stands to reason since they digitalized the microfilm)

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Co. North Carolina page and one of the Salisbury Mecklenburg pages are copies of the entry on another of the Salisbury, Mecklenburg Co.NC pages.  Both of the copied pages have a header that reads "Census of the Inhabitants of Charlotte Rowan Mecklenburg County North Carolina".

There is a notation at the bottom of the two copied pages by Mary C Oursler that gives the date of the copies as March 6th 1931(see image below) but don't really offer much more of an explanation
Rowan Co. NC was formed in 1753 from a part of Anson Co. NC and Mecklenburg Co NC was formed in 1762 also from a part of Anson Co NC  These census entries are from 1800 though. Confusing for sure. A quick search of the Internet and I find out that she was the Official Custodian of the US Census Records at the US Census Bureau; a position she held for over 30 years according to an article at the Library of Congress site.  I wonder if she ever published anything that told why this entry was modified.  Perhaps she maintained a logbook of modifications or entries.  That would make for some interesting reading.
