I am trying to trace our "American Cousins".Can anyone help?Are there any members of this family line still living?
My husband's g.g.g. uncle Thomas Thorp (1825-1870) (son of Samuel Thorp of Rainow, Macclesfield, England) emigrated to the US in the mid 1800s.He married Mary Jollie Notman.
He was in the silk business and at one time was superintendent of the Phoenix silk mill in Paterson, NJ.
His children were Samuel Thorp (1846-1910), Anna Frances Maria Thorp (1849-?) and John Notman Thorp (1856-?).
Samuel married Lizzie Sanderson in 1871 and their children were Henry Wilkes Notman Thorp (1872-1873, Samuel Notman Thorp (1875-1900, married Mary Hopper) and Raymond Thorp(1877 - ?).Samuel is buried at Cedar Lawn Cemetery, Allentown, PA.
John Notman Thorp married Maggie McGill and their children were Mary Jollie Notman Thorp and Anna Frances Maria Thorp.
I would be very interested to hear about any descendents from this line of Thorps.Our line is from Thomas' elder brother Samuel (of Alderley Edge, England).
