I have copies of Humphrey Thorn (not Thomas) will of Feb. 1, 1777, Loudoun Co. It has mistakenly been written as Thomas. There is no Moses Shreve mentioned in the will. It is his cousin, Massa (Marcia, Mercy Shreve) I know this is true because of the will and because of some very old letters. Mercy Shreve, daughter of Caleb and Hannah Thorn Shreve married James Tompkins (Thompkins) and is mentioned in Caleb's will. Mercy's daugher, Elizabeth, married John Lickey and the family moved first to Belmont Co., OH and later to Tuscarawas Co., OH, where Elizabeth died about 1848. John Lickey later moved to Martin Co., IN where he died. He was my g r-gr-grandfather.
