Notes for Fayette Thorn

The Families of Lawrence Thorn

Fayette - Civil War Vet. - Pa. Served two times
Born 25 Jan. 1839 according to death certificate

1840 - Benton, Yates Co., NY
Lawrence Thorn household:
1 male under 5 (this confuses me. He should have George, age 4; William Allen, age 2 & Fayette, age 1)
1 male 30 & under 40 (Lawrence, age 31, born abt 1809)
1 female under 5 (this confuses me too. His first daughter was born in 1842. Unless the census taker thought Fayette was a girl??)
1 female 20 & under 30 (Hannah, age 27, born 1813)

1848 Lawrence & wife & 6 children among `1st families of Corning, NY

1850 census Painted Post, Steuben Co., NY - Lawrence Thorn (40), Hannah (37), George (14), William (12), Fayette (11), Sarah J. (8), Edward (6), Maryette (3), and Charles (1). Lawrence's occupation listed as Mason. Lawrence, Hannah & George listed born NJ, all others born NY.

1855 Census, Scio, Allegany Co., NY shows Lawrence Thorn age 35, Martha age 23 , George age 15, Fayette age 14, Jane age 13, Manult (think they mean Maryetta) age 7 and Edwin 2/12 b. Allegany Co. For the others they have birth place marked unknown, so I wonder if Martha might have given the information and being 2nd wife she would not know where step children were born. Where were William and Francis Edwin at this time?

105th Pennsylvania Volunteers
Company A
Company A was recruited in the southern part of Jefferson county, PA., and was made up from the very best young men from Punxsutawney, and Perry and Oliver townships. The company was raised in three days, mainly through the exertion of Captain John Hastings, assisted by Lieutenants Neill and Morris. After the discharge of Captain Hastings for wounds received while gallantly leading them against the enemy at Bull Run, the command devolved upon Captain W.J. Clyde, who, while charging at their head into the very midst of the rebel host at the Wilderness, was killed. Then Captain John H. McKee assumed command, and, leading them through all the subsequent battles in which they were engaged, finally brought the remnant of the company home after final discharge. The subjoined rolls of the company give the record of every man who belonged to it. During their term of service they lost one officer killed and thirtynine enlisted men killed and died. The company had on its rolls, from the time of its enlistment until its final discharge, two hundred and three men, of whom forty-nine were drafted men and substitues.
