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.

Tombstones II: Sloans, cousins of the Thorntons

The Sloans are a fairly plentiful group of Thornton cousins, descended from Mary Elizabeth Thornton (m. Fernly Alexander Sloan), daughter of Allen and Polly Ray Thornton. The above gravesites belong to four of her children: Edgar Herschel Sloan (m. Nellie Johnson), Ben Sloan (m. Nannie Meador), Allen W Sloan (m. Lucy Pearl Meador), and Alma Sloan.
