I am searching for W. H. Thorpe who was married to Ann. He lived in the DuQuoin, Perry County, Illinois area. I found the following article in the DuQuoin Newspaper from 1920 and I would love to find this family in the State of Wyoming.

DuQuoin Evening Call, January 17, 1920

W. H. Thorpe, former well-known citizen of DuQuoin, who has been spending several months with relatives here leaves tonight for his home in Sweatland, Wyoming, where other members of his family have a large ranch. He will be joined at St. Louis by a son of John Willeford, another erstwhile DuQuoinite, who has been in failing health and who will make the journey to Wyoming in the hope of finding relief from the effects of the influenza, from which he suffered last winter.

Please contact me if you have any information!! Thanks
