Succinctly, no I've no such information. I'm at a disadvantage not having seen either Mrs Schmuck's information, or Charles Gardiner's "Early New Jersey Families 1600-1900". Ellen Levy's compilation thorpreport4.pdf contains many citations to the latter item. And one citation for Mrs Schmuck:

"Interesting, in Charles Gardiner's notes on the Thorpes in "Early New Jersey Families 1600-1900," information
on John Jacob Tharp (19 Feb 1776, m. Mary Benham) was supplied by a Mrs. M.B. Schmuck. This family tree
shows Daniel Thorpe (1661) having a son John Thorpe, who marrried Rebecca Harrison, then Prudence Harrison.
Their son, James (5 Mar 1745, Bridgetown, or Lower Rahway, NJ) married Martha Walton. Children include:
Hannah, Phoebe, Ann, John Jacob, Mark Walton, and Silas.
Although Daniel Thorpe/Abigail Norris did not have son named John, Daniel's brother Benjamin (1669) did.
Nothing is know about Benjamin's son John Thorpe. He may be the John who owns land next door to Abner's
property in Woodbridge."

Well, there is a John son of Benjamin, who I guestimate was born abt 1710. And there is a John Thorpe of Staten Island who married one Appollonia Heermans becoming associated with the DRC. We need not force Benjamin's John to be the John(1745) of OH.

I'm curious to examine the information of Mrs. Schmuck and see what was the basis of her Thorpe history. Does anyone have it?

Two other potential children of Daniel may be Elizabeth and Thomas. In an age when women had children until they could not it is surpising that Daniel fathered only two. Getting any information out of NJ seems to be quite difficult.
