Adam Henthorn Synopsis

Adam Henthorn, a son of James Henthorn II, the original Monroe Co., OH settler, probably came to Monroe Co., OH in 1798 with his parents and two brothers, James and William D. Some claim that he does not appear on the 1820 census under his own name.

Census: 1820 shows families headed by: Adam Henthorne, over 45 years of age; John Henthorne, over 45 years of age; James Henthorne, over 45, but he also had four children under 10; and Margaret Henthorne over 45. Margaret had children who were born between 1804-1810.

He apparently did not purchase any land, but evidently shared with his brothers the land his father had settled in 1798.
