On October 8, 1792, two hundred and twenty years ago today, William H. Thornton (1792-1858), my 6th great grandfather, was born in North Carolina the son of William Thornton (1766-1843) and Martha Ann “Patsy” Owen (1765-?).
William H. Thornton (1792-1858) married Sally Todd (1793-1891). William and Sally were the grandparents of Mary Elizabeth Thornton (1847-1920), who married John Agee (1839-1912). Mary and John were the grandparents of Lois Beatrice Agee (1897-1983), the wife of Wilhelm Percy Wellin (1895-1977), and mother of Alice Lucretia Wellin (1916-1985), who married Theodore “Ted” Alexander Lapham (1910-1955).
