SEVENTH GENERATION

1213. Zadoc Thorn was born on 28 Sep 1788 in Newburgh, Orange Co, NY. He died on 20 Mar 1865 in Hartland, Niagra Co, NY. He died at age 77. The cause of death was consumption or TB. Philip V. Thorne Notes:

According to Edmund Thorne Daughter Catherine Married Elias Powell. This could be a Grand Dtr.

Zadoc apparently was not a member of the Religious Society of Friends. He seems to be the only one of John Thorne's sons, to removed himself, entirely from the Orange County, NY area.

NOTE: 4 JAN 1998

Recently acquired FTM CD having Records of NY during the American Revolution; title says it covers 1775 to 1840; There is a Zadoc Thorn of record as being on the payroll of the state during this time in the group headed by a Col John Harper; exact unit designation not given but ALL officers & men are noted; this can only be this Zadoc Thorn; this may account for his move to the Niagara Falls area as grants of land were generally given with some degree of military service; his exact period of service & rank is not listed, but this has got to be Zadoc, son of John Thorne of Newburg (whose father-in-law was Zadoc Birdsall). There have NO traces of Zadoc Thorn in any of the Quaker records, this probably explains why. He was never a Quaker!!
