I have an original studio photograph of “Gertrude Towsley, Battle Creek Class of 1922”, which I would like to get back to family members. Photo was taken in Battle Creek (Calhoun Co.) MI, and shows Gertrude in her Nurse’s cap. This photo came with a group of about ten photos, all of graduates of nurse’s training at the “Sanitarium” of Battle Creek. Gertrude looks to be about age 25-26 years old.

I found Gertrude in the SSDI, showing she was born 11 Sep 1896, and died Oct 1986 with her last SS check going to Morris (Grundy Co.) IL. From there, I found Gertrude in the 1900 census for Nettle Creek (Grundy Co.), age 3, daughter of George E. and May Towsley. In 1920 census, she was in the Battle Creek, MI census, age 22. By 1930, she was still single and worked as a nurse for the Detroit Health Dept.

Email me at if you are related to the family of Gertrude Towsley.
