I am seeking information on William M. THORP and his 2nd wife Sarah Gossett (dau. of James Lockridge and Priscilla Eleanor Thompson; and widow of James H. SEWELL who was murdered by indians in 1872 in Kimble Co.,Texas).
William M. (it mistakenly has that his name was John P. THORPS) & Sarah THORP are in the 1880 Throckmorton Co.,Texas Census with Sarah's two children by James H. SEWELL (Mary P. Sewell who in 1885 md Sidney Stoval in Throckmorton Co.,TX and son John Sewell). There are also some of the children of William M. THORP's and his unknown first wife (Milton Thorp b.1861, Allen Thorp b. 1867, Mary Thorp b. 1870,Nevil Thorp 1873, and Ida Thorp 1875). There are also 2 daughters of William M. Thorp and Sarah Gossett Sewell Thorp (Ellen Thorp b. 1876 and Laura M. Thorp b. 1878)also in the 1880 Throckmorton Co.,Texas census.
In 1900 Clayton Twp.,Union County,New Mexico Census is W. M. Thorp 64 yrs. old, freighter, b. PA, PA, PA and Sarah THORP 46 yrs. old TX, Tn, NC along with children: Bill Thorp b. 1880 TX, Alcie (Alice?)Thorp b. 1884 TX. and Willis P. Thorp b. 1891 in New Mexico. There is also a baby dau. of Mr. & Mrs. W.M. Thorp in the Old Clayton Cemetery in Union Co., New Mexico.
