I saw you recently posted information on the above couple on Rootsweb World Connect. I have a few questions:

1- What is your source for the marriage of Emeline Fuller and Robert Thorn?
2- Do you have any guesses for the identities of either of their parents?
3- How do either of them fit into your research?

I have posted information on World Connect about this same Emeline A. Fuller (which I need to update):

ID: I478
Name: Emeline A. Fuller
Sex: F
Birth: BEF. OCT 1854 [From the 1880 US Census Horseheads, b. 1825-1826]
Death: AFT. OCT 1875 [Alive in 1880 census]

Father: Unknown Fuller
Mother: Lucy Andrus b: BET. 1796 - 1800 in Possibly Canaan, Columbia Co., NY

Marriage 1 Unknown Thorn [From the 1880 US Census Horseheads I believe this is
Robert Thorn]
Married: BEF. 11 OCT 1875

Source: Richard Andrus Probate, File #38 Surrogate Court, Chemung Co., Elmira, NY
Will Filed October 11, 1875 [Richard d. 1 October 1875 in Horseheads; I have a copy of the complete file]
Text: ". . . Emeline A. Thorn a grand daughter [sic] of said dec'd and the sole surving child of Lucy Fuller eldest daughter of said deceased Richard Andrus, residing at Horseheads, NY . . "

From the 1880 Census, Emeline and Robert Thorn do not show a child Levina. (She may have married by then.) There is a son - Horace T. Thorn, b. 1864-1865 in NY.

Emeline's uncle, Spafford Andrus, was in a business in Horseheads - Thorn, Andrus and Barbour. From "The History of Chemung County", Town of Horseheads, p. 485:
"Although Horseheads is a village of residences, it has also been the location of manufacturing interests. On the square front of a building near the old canal erected many years since appears dimly through an outer coat of paint the words 'Carriage Factory.' More plainly than the other and upon the same space is seen 'Woolen Factory.'. . .
The woolen factory above mentioned was started in 1868 by Robert Thorn and Spafford Andrus. Clark M. Barbour became associated with them in the business, which was successfully conducted under the firm name of Thorn, Andrus & Barbour." This Robert Thorn may be Emeleline's husband, or probably is a relative anyway.

My interest in this couple is primarily because of Emeline's grandparents, Richard and Delight (Roberts) Andrus. If you go to Rootsweb World Connect, you can see their information and the names of some of their children. I'm very interested in the name of Emeline's father. I suspect Emeline's parents were married in Madison Co., NY, but without a name, the search is difficult.

I'm happy to share any information I have.
