Darrell thanks again, you definitely have the correct Sylvester Thorn in the June 17, 1957 accident article.It is very possible that he remarried after his first wife died in 1918, so the Nancy Dooley obit could be a lead.
In the Legacy of Kin article, everything I have found for Larkin Thorne is an A.J. Larkin Thorn, who was a soldier in the Saline County Civil War, 1861 to 1865, and it says he mustered out in 1862, and died at home, March of 1862.Sylvester was born 1881.
Regarding the Sisk cemetary location, I believe that is correct also for Rice Cemetery.
Would you please email me direct, if you happen to come across anything else.Thank you so much, you've been most helpful.Joan,email@example.com
