  • Note: GEORGE TYRRELL, a successful farmer and well-known citizen of Bear Creek township, Waupaca county, was born November 25 1844, in Upper Canada, son of John and, Mary (Le Grue) TYRRELL, the former of whom is a son of William and Fannie (Webb) TYRRELL.William TYRRELL, grandfather of our subject, came with his family from England in 1833 to Cornwall, Canada. Mrs. Fannie (Webb) TYRRELL died when her son John was but six years of age, the mother of the three children, John, George and Joseph. William TYRRELL had one more son, William, by another marriage. John TYRRELL was born June 15, 1817, in Oxfordshire, England, and had but meager chances for an education, all his training being obtained at Sunday-school. When sixteen years of age he came with his father to Canada, shortly afterward gong to St. Lawrence county, N. Y., for a time. He served three years, from 1840 to 1843, in the British army in Canada. On August 20, 1840, he was married in Canada to Mary Le Grue, who bore him thirteen children, viz; Adelaide, George, Charles, Martha, Mary Ann, Solomon, Elizabeth, Electa, John, Carrie, Maria; Horace and Lucian, of whom four, Adelaide, Mary Ann, Maria and Horace, died in infancy; the others are living, all except three in the State of Wisconsin. When our subject (George TYRRELL) was but two years old, in 1846, Mr. and Mrs. John TYRRELL removed to St. Lawrence county, N.Y.,where Mr. Tyrrell farmed on rented land for about five years, or until 1851, in which year he removed westward to Rockport, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, and there learned the carpenter's trade. This he continued to follow during his residence in Ohio, and in 1856 he came to Wisconsin, working at his trade in New London for two years, when he came to Bear Creek township, Waupaca county, and here, in Section 13, purchased forty acres of land in its most primitive condition, for which he paid $150 cash, in gold. He had a yoke of oxen, and at once commenced the work of clearing, and, having come early in the spring, in March, he had five acres sowed to corn, potatoes and turnips the first year. The family lived with Martin Phillips until a house could be constructed. During their early residence here Mrs. Tyrrell would shell corn from the cob, grind it in a coffee mill, and make mush, Which they ate with milk, having brought two cows with them from New London. Mr. Tyrrell was a very energetic and progressive man; he made a cradle and fanning mill, which helped him considerably in his work, and as an evidence of his untiring efforts to push his work it is related that on one occasion he walked to New London after six o'clock one evening, carried home a bag of wheat, and had it sowed by six o'clock the next morning. In about three years after coming here he purchased another forty acres, which was also cleared, and he yet lives on the homestead, which his son Lucian now conducts. Mrs. Mary (Le Grue) TYRRELL died in September, 1890.
    George TYRRELL, being the eldest in the family, had but limited opportunities for an education, and commenced to work at an early age, being reared to agricultural life on the pioneer farm. On July 4, 1863, he was united in marriage with Jane De Groff, who was born March 11, 1843, in Upper Canada, daughter of Nicholas and Betsey (Greppier) De Groff, who had children as follows: Richard, Melissa, Jane, William Henry, Allen, Ellen, Harlan, living, and Lodina, deceased. By a previous marriage Mr. De Groff had five children: Stephen, Eliza, Maria, John and Lydia. After marriage Mr. and Mrs. Tyrrell lived with his parents for about three months, when he bought forty acres of timberland in Section 36, on which he lived about five years, clearing thirty acres of the tract during that time. Moving thence to what is now called Bear Creek Corners, he kept hotel for two years, and since that time he has lived in various parts of the township, in 1883 buying twenty acres of improved land, where he yet makes his home. In addition to farming he has been engaged in the woods, in river driving, and for twenty-three years has conducted a threshing machine. In 1888 he erected a shingle-mill, which he still operates.
    To Mr. and Mrs. Tyrrell have been born ten children, as follows: Arthur, May 4, 1864; Rhoda, November 11, 1865; Mary Ann, November 9, 1867; Olive, February 15, 1869; Fletcher, November 25, 1870; Rindia, November 29, 1872; Elva, October 18, 1874; George, Jr., August 25, 1876; Luther, April t 3, 1879; and Mabel, February 28, 1881 . They have also an adopted daughter, Emma, who was born December 16, 1860, and was adopted by the Tyrrells in 1863, her father, Mr. Page, having died in the army.
