Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in family history and any and all locations of their grave sites. I grew up in the great state of West Virginia and have traveled all over the world. There is no place I have been that I would prefer over West Virginia. Any assistances or advice I can offer, please send message. Anyone searching the Thorn/e family history, please place William Thorne Flushing Remonstrance into your computer's search engine and you will find more history than you can handle.

Nancy C Thorn
I do not believe the Nancy C. Thorn 1913-1913 that is listed as a child of Jeremiah (105603886) and Nancy Duncan (20918246) Thorn can be their child as this would have made her mother past 70 at the time of her birth. I believe the Nancy should be Nancy E. "Nannie" Thorn married to Samuel McKinney.

George "Happy" Thorne
In looking for information on George Thorn I notice that you have two memorials #105617591 and 113859810 entered for him. One has his obit and the other has his grave stone. Can these be combined? Thanks for all the help.

Jeremiah McBride
Mr. Thorne,
I can not thank you enough for your words on his memorial for my first cousin three times removed, Jeremiah McBride, sad as they are.

(His mother Sarah is the daughter of my 3rd great uncle Jesse Ferguson, and his father Charles is my 2nd great uncle.)

My heart broke as I read what you wrote about him and the letter from Thomas to the family. I could go on and on here, but suffice it to say, you have touched my heart.

And thank you for sharing the photo of the McBride family that has been posted on ancestry in remembrance of their sacrifices. My son is a Confederate reenactor knowing of others of our ancestors who fought, but I know this story will be one that he will never forget. We will never forget their sacrifices, long as we live.
Thank you for keeping our history alive!

RE: Joseph Burke Thorn
Yes, I am related to the McBride's in Mercer County, West Virginia. I was a McBride before I married. My husband's Mother was a Thorn before she married. Her parents were Joseph Burke Thorn and Rhoda Smith Thorn. We may be related on both side and you are also related to my husband. Small world isn't it?

RE: Relation
Thanks, I will look at that. You are sixth cousin to my husband. Fun to find new cousins, no matter how distant.

RE: Joseph Burke Thorn
Yes, I am one of the McBride families from Mercer County, West Virginia. My lineage goes like this: Thomas McBride married Katherine Hunt
Charles McBride married Sarah Ferguson
Thomas McBride married Lucetta Francis Ferguson
Elijah McBride married Nancy Permelis Ferguson
Levi McBride married Noralee Trivett
Joyce McBride married Willis Kenneth Harrison

Willis Kenneth Harrison was the son of Ken Harrison and Florence Mae Thorn Harrison.

Florence was the daughter of Joseph Burke Thorn and Rhoda Smith.

Looks like we are related. Nice to meet a new cousin. Keep in touch.
