Hi Richard. I think that I have already sent this to you, but here goes anyway.

My Great-Grandfather, Dr. Rev. Charles B. Henthorne added the "e" to our name to separate himself from the rest of the Henthorn's who "tipped the elbow." He ran for the House Of Representatives as a member of the Prohibition Party. I believe that this may be the motivation for the change.
