Thomas Thorn d. 1803 Monongalia - Cassandra Thorn adminstratrix of estate

Thomas Thorn d. 1803 Monongalia - Cassandra Thorn adminstratrix of estate

Posted: 27 Mar 2006 4:30PM GMT
Classification: Query
I have recently found the estate settlement of Thomas Thorn, who died in Monongalia County, Virginia (at the time) in 1803. His wife, Cassandra was the adminstratrix of his estate.

I am trying to get more information about all the early Thomas, Joshua, William, and John Thorns, etc., in Monongalia County, Virginia (now WV) and where they all came from.

I would like to find some information about these people so I can see if and where they link up to my Thorn line, which is John Thorn and Sarah (Finnell?) Thorn.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Could the following THOMAS THORN be yours?:

#############
HISTORY OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA 1887 (Warner, Beers & Co. Chicago 1887)
p. 587
THOMAS THORN a member of the Rocky Springs Presbyterian Church a hundred years ago (ie, 1787)
p. 154
EDWARD THORN on List of Taxables in 1751-2 for Hamilton/St. Thomas Twps.
p. 578
JOSEPH THORN and JAMES THORN on List of Taxables in 1786 for Hamilton Twp.
p. 574
JOHN THORN on List of Taxables in 1786 for Guildford Twp.
p. 596
WILLIAM THORN on List of Taxables in 1786 for Franklin Twp. (now extinct, it then comprised Chambersburg and surrounding plats).
############

The JOSEPH THORN and JOHN THORN listed are mine and the WILLIAM and JAMES possibly their brothers. But the Thomas and Edward baffle me.

I don't think these are my Thorns. The Thomas I have comes from Prince Georges county Maryland, I'm not quite sure when, but was in Prince Georges in 1776.

Thanks.

I believe that these are the parent's of John Thorn that you are speaking of in Monongalia County he died 1831. I believe in the next post near the bottom that they identify John as marrying Elizabeth Knight, when it should be Sarah Finnell. Look at the connection of the other children marrying Finnells.

Surnames: Thorn Knight Burch Finnell
This Thomas Thorn and his wife Cassandra had a son name John Thorn, who married Elizabeth Knight. This John Thorn died in 1821 in Monongalia County, Virginia (now WV) and his wife was the executrix of his estate. I have the court papers. for John and Elizabeth as well as Thomas Thorns court papers.

I have the court papers for the John Thorn, b. 1789, in Virginia, d. 1831 in Monongalia County, VA (now WV). These court papers list his wife and all his children, because of a court fight that one of the children and her spouse started after his death. These are my husbands direct ancestors. This John Thorn, son of Peregrine Thorn and Ann Burch, married Sarah Finnell, daughter of Reuben Finnell and Sarah Ashford. I have court papers to prove these relationships as well.

Hi, has your husband taken the Ancestry DNA test? I'm looking for Thorns in my line, and this is part of my line. I, too, have a John Thorn B 1773 in MD, who died in TN. I'm trying to prove John's relationship with his father since I have found no direct documents in Montgomery/Dickson TN. Thank you!
