There is absolutely no proof that Thorn Hill, Tennessee, was named for a Civil War officer, but there is much proof that the place name Thorn Hill was used in Grainger County before 1860. Records of the Tennessee State Library and Archives show that there was a post office at Thorn Hill, TN, as early as 1836, which was several years before Union officer Capt. John Thornhill was born in nearby Jefferson County. Additionally, records held by the Grainger County Archives show many references to the location of Thorn Hill in the county decades before the Civil War.
