|Notes for Phoebe Chase
Excerpt from Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte published by Rolph & Clark Ltd. 1904 reads: "Before leaving New Brunswick he [Samuel Thorn] married Phoebe Chase, whose sister Mary was the grandmother of the late Sir S. L. Tilly, of New Brunswick."
It further states: " The Thorns came accompanied by such well-known country families as the Babbits, Morgans and Giles. Samuel Thorn and his son Seth, who married Rhoda Babbit before leaving New Brunswick, worked a two hundred acre lot, on which they lived in two small houses."
