Yes, Thorp was originaly spelled with an "e."
It can be confusing. The first home in the current city of Thorp was built in the town of Withee, and the city sits right on the border between the towns of Withee and Thorp. Both townships were originally a part of the town of Hixon. The town of Thorp was carved out of Hixon in 1876, and the town of Withee in 1880.
The city of stanley lies just west of the town of Thorp, in Chippewa county.
St. Mary Czestochowa is a little over 1.5 miles east of Stanley and 3.5 miles north. It is about 5 miles west of the City of Thorp, and again, 3.5 miles north. It is located at the place called Junction, as many years ago there was a railroad junction there, as well as a cheese factory, store, and White Eagle School (which my mother attended).
