Hey Marilyn,
So happy to hear you are still working on another cemetery book. I don't know the anwser to your question, but I did find the following in the book, THORNTOWN SESQUICENTENNIAL 1830-1980, reproduced from THE THORNTOWN CENTURIAL, EPISODE FOUR, The First White Settlers;
"Thorntown was held as an Indian reservation until the year 1828 when it was purchased from the Indians by the government. The reserve here was one of the most important west of Pittsburgh. In 1830 George Harness and a family of twelve children arrive to take up their abode in an Indian hut. Soon after other families followed. We depict the arrival of Harness and his family and the building of the first permanent settlement-a log cabin."
Hope this helps :-)
Take care and happy holidays
