Query - Message Board


My family moved to Vermont from New Hampshire in the 1800's,
they lived firstly in Wheelock and then Hardwick.
The family name is Thornton.
The line I am interested in decends from Samuel Thornton.
My G Grandfather was John Clark Thornton.
I have looked at all the cemetery sites and cannot
locate any graves for any Thorntons in Vermont.
Has anyone come across any info on any Thorntons in the Wheelock/ Hardwick area.
John Thornton married Jennie Rowell from Albany Orleans,
his siblings included Jabez P. , William, Benjamin F. Maria B (married a Niles)
Josesph N. (married a Tatro). I know they are there somewhere!.
My husband and I are planning a trip up to Vermont and would very much like
to find the final resting place of some of these Thorntons.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
