History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

John Thurman was one of a group of investors who started the town's settlement in 1790 at Elm Hill. The town of Thurman was established in 1792. Originally the town was called Athol by early settlers, but when Warren County was established in 1813, much of the town was lost to the new town of Warrensburg and the remainder was still called Athol. Athol was divided in 1852 to form the town of Thurman and the town of Stony Creek.

Besides the town of Thurman, the town of Johnsburg is also named after John Thurman.
