|Notes: Frederick Byron Ferrell was born 1 Jul 1910 in Riverside, California. He was the oldest son of Thomas Ferrell and Mabel Olson. He was known variously as Freddie or Fred. In the 1910 U.S. census, the family was living in Riverside, where his father was a salesman in a shoe store. His family moved back to Alhambra soon thereafter as Fred and his mother attended the birthday party of his cousin Donald Olson on 29 Mar 1911 in Alhambra.|
His brother Clifford was born in
1914 in Alhambra, and his family was living at 126 East McLean in
Alhambra in 1915. His father was the proprietor of Ferrell's Shoe Shop
repairing shoes. Fred attended many of the birthday parties for his young
cousins. They are seen at left at the sixth birthday party of Donald Olson
in 1913. In 1918, Fred's family was living at 316 North 4th Street,
In the 1920 U.S. census, Fred's family was living with his maternal grandparents, Hans and Mary Olson, at 336 North Wilson Avenue, Alhambra. Hans and Mary bought a house for the family, and from at least 1922 on, the Ferrell's home was at 121 South Granada, Alhambra. About 1922, a brother Eugene was born, but he died in infancy. His last brother was born in 1926.
In the 1930 U.S. census, the family was living on South Granada. Fred's father was now trying his hand at selling real estate. Fred was working as a truck driver for a lumber company. This was undoubtedly the Olson Lumber Company owned by his Uncle Frank Olson. In 1937, the Alhambra City Directory lists Fred as a chauffeur.
Fred's cousin Donald Olson recounted that Fred probably married, had a couple of children, and then divorced. On 12 Dec 1933 The Los Angeles Times recorded the "Intention to Marry" of Frederick B. Ferrell, 23, and Faye Johnson, 19. Fred married Faye Alveretta Johnston on 15 Dec 1933 in Alhambra, Los Angeles, California. Their first son, Freddie Leon, was born in 1934, and their second son, Edward Ray, in 1939.
In the 1936 "Index to Register of Voters", the couple is registered to vote as Democrats, living at 413 W. Linda Vista Avenue, Alhambra. Fred was listed as a shipper. In the 1940 U.S. census, Fred and Faye are living at 315 W. Garvey, El Monte. Fred is a truck driver. He is listed as having three years of high school. In 1942, the couple is registered to vote at 1023 W. 4th Street, Los Angeles. Fred is listed as an operator. The couple divorced sometime in the 1940's.
Fred entered service for the U.S. Army on 9 Sep 1946, rising to the rank of Sergeant. Nothing more is known about his life. He was known as an alcoholic, and dropped out of sight from his family. He died 24 Nov 1965 in Los Angeles County, and was buried 9 Dec 1965 in the Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, California.
