My great grandfather Francis Edwin Thorne, born Oct. 20, 1843 in Corning, Steuben Co., NY and died in Retsil, Kitsap Co., WA May 25, 1930. He was a son of Lawrence and Hannah VanWinkle Thorn. Francis Edwin spelled his name with an "e". He was first married to my ancestor Jennie Magill who was born in Erie, PA and second to Lulu Carrie Ingersoll who was born in MI.
