We am trying to find someone working on Andrew Bufford "Buff" Thornton family. He was a Baptist Minister.
Andrew was born Jan. 27, 1880 in AR. His parents were Ira and Mary HARRIS Thornton. He married Susan Elvira "Susie" Spencer. She was the daughter of Josiah Martin & Mary Jane MARSHALL Spencer. We would love to know what churchs he pastored in Coryell Co., TX.
This family joined the Rock Bluff Baptist Church, Comanche Co., TX 1899. They stayed in Comanche Co., TX until 1907-1908.
Daughter Olive Ruth Thornton was born Dec. 1909 in Elgin, Bastrop Co., TX.
Son B. H. "Carroll" Thornton was born in Jan 1911 in Cold Springs, Coryell Co., TX.
Daughter Jessie Estell Thornton was born in Lexington, Lee Co., TX
1920 & 1930 Census they are in Jones Co., TX
Rev. Andrew B. Thornton died March 13, 1969.
We are trying to put together a book on the Rock Bluff Community, Church, and the Cemetery. We could use your help.
If you can help us with this family please contact one of us.
