About Susannah Reno

Mary Susannah THORNE(5) (206)(4) (2) was born on Nov 17 1719 in Prince William, Virginia. She died on Aug 29 1773 in Brownsville Or Patterson's Cre, VA. She has Ancestral File number 4NK6-NJ. Susannah's mother's maiden name was probably Mary Peck, daughter of Robert Peck. She married first John Orear, and then William Thorn. Donna Sarchet ( found a 1733 deed in King George Co., VA where William Thorn and his wife Mary, "relict of John Orea of Prince William County, VA", and Margaret Glasscock (daughter of John Orea and Mary Orea Thorn) and her husband John Glasscock, sell land to Cornelius McCarty. This land is stated in the deed to have been owned by John Orea before his death. In 1708, Robert Peck and his wife Margaret granted a lifetime lease on this same piece of land to John and Mary Orea "of Stafford Co., VA" on behalf of John and Mary's daughter Margaret, who later married John Glasscock. Robert Peck says that this transaction is for "the love, goodwill, and affection which I have and bare towards my loving friend, Margaret Oriar, daughter to John and Mary Oriar".

One source says that Susannah Thorn was born in New England, but there is no evidence for this, and all of the records for William Thorn and his wife Mary in the early 1700s have them in or near Stafford or Prince William County, VA. According to Boddie's Historic Southern Families, Susanna died at Patterson's Creek, VA and may have been killed by Indians. Her name last appears in land records for Hampshire Co., VA in 1772, and it is thought that her husband moved to Pennsylvania about 1772-1773 after her death.

Parents: William THORNE and Mary PECK.

She was married to John RENO on Nov 17 1737 in Greenbrier, Vale, VA. Children were: Reverend William RENEAU, Benjamin RENEAU, Margaret RENEAU, Sarah RENEAU, John David RENEAU, Mary RENEAU, George RENEAU, Charles RENEAU, Lewis RENEAU, Reverand Francis RENEAU, Thomas RENEAU, Margaret RENEAU.
