Elizabeth was the 2nd of 4 children of William Robert "Will" Thornton and his wife Louise E. White Thornton. The others were Stephen, Donald & Robert. Will Thornton was born in Solon, NY on 11 Apr. 1888, son of Stephen H. & Harriet (English) Thornton, and died at Highgate Nursing Home, Cortland, NY 28 July 1987. Stephen shortened his name, by court order, from Thorington. He was son of Wm H. & Ursula (Sherman) Thorington of Solon, and grandson of Gideon & Sophronia (Neff) Thorington of Taylor, NY.

I was present at Will Thornton's 95th birthday party at Highgate Nursing Home in Cortland. I had known him for years. Also present was Will's kid brother, Arthur Thornton, then age 90.

My wife is a Thorington descendant. E-mail me at for further info.
