Alonzo Francis Thurber I is my grandfather of whom I would like to have the information about when & where he was born, and who is parents were. He lived in Smithfield, Rhode Island until approximately 1950 but I think he came from Central Falls, R.I.
If anyone can help me with this information, I would be very happy.

I have information on Alonzo, and his children. Also have more on Charles H. Thurber who was a bigamist. I have copies of Clarinda's divorce from him. According to those papers, Alonzo was 15 in October 1875, so there is some question about who Terrence was and when Alonzo was born. I am emailing you more details.

Briefly, Charles H. Thurber, son of Alfred Wood Thurber and Mehitable Short m. 1st Clarinda Amelia Bagley. They had several children between 1860 and 1870. He left her and married Lucy Wood (age 21) on 13 Dec 1873. Lucinda filed for divorce. She later married Philip Waterman Chase.

If you want copies of the divorce papers, please email me privately with an address for mailing. I can provide additional details, but need a bit of time to dig out my files on this line :-)
