Thorner Family from Brzesne or Lipno, Poland

While researching Paul Thorner's Uncle Louis Thorner I came upon a number of documents which were slightly off. I finally decided that there were at least two Louis Thorners and to research both. To my great surprise, on the 1913 Manifest of the Louis Thorner who was not Paul's Uncle I read that he was headed for "Uncle Gedalia Thorner: 155 So. 2nd St, Brooklyn," and that is the address where my great-grandfather Gedalia resided and where my grandparents were married!

I'd love to hear from these two families!
