Thomas Atherton Munn
Seeking information on Thomas Atherton Munn, born July 12, 1778 in New Jersey or New Hampshire. He married Mary (Molly) Wolcott daughter of Silas Wolcott who fought in the Revolution and located in Bradford County, Pennsylvania after that conflict.
Thomas Munn, one of the first settlers of Litchfield, Pa., who moved there from Ithaca, N.Y. and married Mary (Molly) daughter of Silas Wolcott and Margaret Rowen. They had fourteen children. Thomas moved from Tompkins County, New York which was near Ithaca, New York to Litchfield, Bradford County, Pennsylvania around 1806. He spent his days there clearing and improving the land and was a farmer.
I have been told that perhaps Thomas' father was a British soldier in the Revolutionary War who deserted and changed his name from Atherton to Munn (perhaps his mother's maiden name). I have no substantiation for this.
