1893 Wilmington, Delaware city directory
Thorn, Herbert  coachman W H Gregg, home Oak near Broome

There is no Herbert or Kate Thorn in the 1894 Wilmington directory, but there is a Herbert Thornett, florist, home Oak near s. Broome.  Could just be a coincidence or a bungling of the spelling, but I thought it was potentially interesting.
