In January 2005 you posted on this forum that you were in the process of moving your father's family history stuff to your house and that you would be willing to see if you could help others. I don't have an answer for you present post. Here are my ancestors: Gr.Gr.Grandparents Anna Thorp born 1804 in Cayuga Co. N.Y. married John Irwin. Anna's parents were John Jacob Thorp and Mary Benham (my Gr.Gr.Gr.Grsndparents). John was born Feb. 18, 1776 in Morris Co. N.J., died March 1859 in Noblesville, IN. John's parents were James Thorp (4 Gr.Grandparents) born March about 1744 in Bridgetown, N.J., he married Martha Walton. I know some of my Thorp family moved to Henry Co., IL.;Clinton, Il. or/and Clinton Co., IL. A Phoebe Thorp 1798-1876 married a Wm. Reddick 1823 in Clermont Co. Oh., moved to Castleton, In. then to Clinton IL. I'm trying to find out if any of the Thorp's in Clinton and Pekin are on my related line. Any other help would be very welcome and I also am willing to share info. Thanks to everyone who shares, it's really appreciated.
