Thank you very much. I would have responded sooner, but wasn't notified of your response. I just happened to check out the queries I had most recently posted.
Since early NJ census records are scarce, must look for people after they have move, if they move.
Henderson/Warren Co. IL. has Peter Tharp/Thorp, and several other ref. to Tharp's who left NJ., to Fulton Co.IL., to Henderson, Co IL. I suspect a link to Peter Tharp/Thorp and the Fulton Co. IL. Tharps.
Curious to find if John and Mary Tharp, b. NJ., to NY., to Warren Co. IL. are part of this group.
I have no idea of church affiliation.
Newspapers, do you have names of the local newspapers in the area,during this time?
I haven't looked for a will for John Tharp, in Warren/Henderson Co.IL. Do you have knowledge of the process to check for one?
