Thomas E. Norvell family

Thomas E. Norvell family

Surnames: Norvell, Walton, Gainey
I am looking for Thomas E. NORVELL and Emme WALTON. Thomas was born December 19, 1853 and died February 5, 1932. Emme was born July 31, 1869 and died July 22, 1955. Emme had at least two sons and a daughter. Daughter Louise was born August 31 1907 and died february 26 1914. The two sons were Marion W. Norvell and William C. Norvell. William attended the Naval Academy at Annapolis and rose to the rank of Admiral before he died in November of 1975.

Thomas was married to Josephine GAINEY prior to his marriage to Emme Walton. Jospehine was born June 7, 1866 and died July 31, 1899. She had at least four daughters.

Thomas was apparently a "Jr.". His father had the same name. There was also a son name T.E. Norvell III. I am not certain which woman would have been his mother, but it was probably Josephine.

Emme was the daughter of Jesse Alfonso Walton and Louisa Smith.

Thomas, Emme, daughter Louise, and first wife Josephine were all buried in a family plot at Grovetown Cemetery, Columbia Co., GA.

I would like to verify as much of the data that I have about this family as possible, as well as fill in a few gaps. I know how Emme fits into the Walton family, but I would like to know more about her children, and I would like to know more about Thomas E. Norvell and his other children so that I can have accurate information.

Thank you! I will be contacting you personally soon. I would really like the opportunity to fill in this branch of the family tree.

Can you tell me how Thomas. E. Norvell is a 'Jr.' and his son is Thomas E. Norvell III if 'Jr's' father is Thomas B. Norvell? Were the differeing middle names not taken into account? I had tried looking for a Thomas E. Norvell 'Sr.', and this explains why I could not find him.

I am sorry for the delay. thank you for your information. I will add it to mine. This is not my direct line and I am only related to the Norvell family by the marriage to Emme Walton. Still, it helps to put the family into context.

I have learned more about Mr. Norvell's entire family, including his children by his first wife. The daughter and two sons were apparently the only children with Emme. With such a famous son, you would think it might be easier to fill in this branch!

If I can help you out with Emme Walton and her family, please let me know.
