The funeral of Mrs. Lillian Pursell, 76, of 154 Apricot St., was held this morning at the Morello Funeral Home, Easton. Mrs. Pursell, wife of Levitt Pursell, died Monday in Easton Hospital.


Apricot St. was an alley just behind New St. Hill in Easton. My grandmother, May Miller, Lillian's daughter-in-law, lived on New St. I recall going in this alley behind my grandmother's house to someone else's house, but never recalled whose house it was; come to find out that is where my grandfather's sister Bertha Utter lived there and her mother, my gr-grandmother, Lillian Pursell lived with her.

I was only 7 yrs. old when she died, so I don't remember her, I didn't even know that it was a family member who I visited in that alley called Apricot St. until my mother told me the story.

According to genealogical research done by Frederick "Fritz" Ealer, Lillian's 5th cousin (who was a pall-bearer at her funeral), she was 1st married to a man named George North. No other details are recorded.

I came across a George T. North, who was the manager of the Karldon Hotel in Easton. He was born in Bermuda and managed the hotel during the 1920s as far as I can tell. During this time he was married to Agnes H. M. North who died in 1971 and is buried in Allentown. I've yet to confirm that this is the 1st husband of my gr-grandmother Lillian Pursell.
