Welcome to our Thornton family

In this blog we attempt to create a visual history of a main southern Kentucky Thornton branch, descended from Scots-Irish Thorntons who may have arrived in Pennsylvania in the mid-1700s. If your goal is to check whether or not you or a family member are listed in our genealogy file, the first eight posts contain more than 1,500 names, listed generationally. Use the 'find' command to scroll through the material...Good luck.

Also, if you have photos, corrections, or inquiries, please feel free to contact us at thorntonsoky@gmail.

Thornton DNA

Should anyone desire to match a DNA profile with ours, the alleles are:
13 24 14 11 11 14 12 12 11 13 13 29...

These matched on both my uncle and mother's cousin. A related family with similar alleles (1 difference) is that of Samuel Thornton, A Scots-Irishman whose family left Pennsylvania, lived in North Carolina and South Carolina, and ended up in Ohio and Indiana. Samuel died in South Carolina. There is another branch with two alleles difference that began in Pennsylvania and ended up on the west coast. For more information, feel free to contact us.

A branch of the Samuel Thornton line has a website devoted to their genealogy: www.sonton.info
