Richard P. Thurber - Manistee 1870

Richard P. Thurber - Manistee 1870

Classification: Query
I am trying to figure out what happen to Richard P. Thurber.
He was born between 1818-1823 NY

He is listed on 1870 Manistee census living with Mary. Not sure if she is a wife or a daughter. She was born in 1844 and have not found her previously.

Other sources on the internet, tell me that a Richard P. Thurbur, born in Saratogo NY, was the first postmaster of Fyfe lake. (1872-1873). He was a carpenter.

Another source says he moved to California in 1880 but not finding him...
...THURBER, RICHARD P. Was born at Saratoga Springs, New York, May 17, 1823. When he was seventeen years of age, he engaged as apprentice to the carpenter's trade, which he followed until 1856, when he engaged in merchandising. This business he followed about five years, when he closed out and went to Michigan. Here he followed carpentering for about twelve years. In the fall of 1880 he came to California, since which time he has been a resident of Lake County, and is engaged in the lumber business at Rice's mill. (From: History of Napa and Lake Counties, California
Slocum, Bowen & Co., Publishers San Francisco, California 1881 )


He had married while living in NY to Rebecca Riley.
Rebecca remarried in 1866 to a Mr. Allen. so I am assuming they got divorced..


I am assuming he died before 1885 and is somewhere in Michigan.. or California..


Can anyone suggest where I should look to find this person??
