My middle name is my mother's maiden name. It was given to me since there were no males in her line of the family. My line of the Coutant family has been in this country since the late 1600's coming from La Rochelle, France as French Huguenots, escaping religious persecution, and helping to establish, among other places, New Rochelle, New York.

The Thorn and Coutant families have played active roles in the Religious Society of Friends since the beginning of that movement. My branches have contributed much to the life of the Clintondale, New York Friends Monthly Meeting (Quaker). I've included an historical document which was a souvenir booklet compiled as part of the 50th Anniversary of the building of the meeting house. Included in this document is a brief history of the meeting and a complete membership list (May 1939). Click on the picture of the Meeting House to view the document.
