Hiram G. Thorp was supposedly born about 1813 in CT. He enlisted in the army in Hartford in 1837 and later in 1842 I find records of military service also listing him as being from CT..  Although he listed himself as being born in Cheshire CT I cannot find a record of that birth. I do not see a marriage in CT and I do not see him on a list of descendants of Wm. Thorp a founder of New Haven.  By the 1940s he was in Kansas where I found him in a state census, his wife is listed as Indian.  They are the grandparents of the famous athlete Jim Thorpe.

I am looking for the early years of Hiram G., where he was born, and who his parents were.  The only Thorps I can find in Cheshire CT in the right time period are Samuel and Samuel Jr. I cannot find that they had a child named Hiram.
