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 Careers: Singer based in Hong Kong

In this advertisement for a performance at the Skylark Lounge, Hong Kong, we have four Americans who have performed throughout Asia as members of Metro.  One of the members is Kevin Lyle Thornton (far left), son of Jimmy L. and Rebecca  Thornton of Franklin, KY.  Jimmy is the son of John W. Thornton, a brother of Jesse Benton.  Kevin earned a music education degree from Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, KY.

Metro recently performed at the Miss Hong Kong Pageant and have been signed by Sony Music.  Aside from Kevin, the other members are Sean Oliver, Eric Monson, and Michael Lance.
