I am posting this with the hope of someone knowing anything about this man. He is my 3rd great grandfather and I am searching for any information about where he is from, and his parents or siblings.
Here is what I have on him:
Samuel Thorn b. c1788 (possibly 1783) d. Dec. 10, 1843 in Vincennes, IN (Knox County). He married in Vincennes, July 15, 1808 to Polly (Mary) Huffman b. c1786 d. Nov. 8, 1840. He married again June 11, 1841 to Catherine Huffman b. ? d. Dec. 16, 1852.
Samuel Thorn was a merchant in Vincennes along with his son-in-law Alvin Tracy. The business was called THORN & TRACY.
Samuel's children were as follows:
Lucinda Thorn b. April 22, 1810 d. Mar. 15, 1865 m. Alvin Tracy
