ANSWER TO BELOW:
My suggestion is don't count the name off or change it until you can prove
what it is.
While it may have been wrong, and it certainly is a rare spelling, there
were and are others with that spelling.
I went to Ancestry and asked for only the first name Threese. While some of
those that came up could be misspelled, there were at least three that most
likely were correct and I felt others could have also been correct given the
information being furnished. Some of these were under the birth, marriage and
death information. Here's the 3 that I mentioned.
1. SSDI - Threese Frasse - Died 1967 in New York State
2. Obit - Lucille Threese Mercurio - Died 2006 in New York State
3. BGMI - Biography & Genealogy Master Index - Threese Anne Clark
There are also some current listings under their U.S. Public Records Index
(21 - some are duplicates) but the name does exist and is still out there.
Subject: [ROOTS-L] Threese?
I'm looking at an 1850 Georgia census, and the handwriting's clear
enough, the enumerator wrote a wife's name down as Threese. what
could this be a nickname for? Teresa comes to mind immediately, but
the h throws me off.
