  • Notes 
    • "On April 7, 1732, Thomas Thorne was chosen as an overseer of highways, and on Aug. 6, 1754, he registered his earmark (Hempstead Town Rec. 4:98 & 425). His name appears occasionally in Hempstead as a witness to deeds and other legal papers. Although he died two years after the Declaration of Independence, nothing has been found regarding his political opinions. His will, executed Feb. 20, 1778, and proved Oct. 17, 1778, leaves to 'my dearly beloved Wife Mary' household furniture and plate; 'all my hogs, my riding chair, and my Negro wench Teen'; and during her widowhood the dwelling house and farm, together with 'Negro man Jack' while she occupies the farm; but if the farm is sold or rented out 'then I give the said Negroman Jack to my Sons Amos, Richard, and Thomas, equally to be divided among them.'"
