Notes:
So many Thurms are listed as bottlers and saloon owners, that it's hard to keep track of them all.
Julius Thurm (b. 1829 in Germany, d. 1899 in DC) was a saloon owner in Good Hope. His wife Amelia C. Thurm (b. 1826 in Germany) seems to have taken over his business breifly in 1900.
Herman Thurm (b. 1854 in Germany, d. 1901 in DC) was the son of Julius, and a saloon owner in Anacostia and later Twining City. Anacostia and Twining City are both sections of Washington DC.
Gustave Adolf Thurm (b. 1881) was Herman's oldest son, and Gustave's WW1 registration card says he was a partner in the Gustave Brothers.
Julius R. Thurm (b. 1885) and August Thurm (b. 1890 in DC) were also sons of Herman.
