Hi Dee:

Yes, all of the children are George and Corrie's children.
I did find/noticed on the 1880 census Harris County that it listed George Thornton, Caroline Thornton - wife , and Lily - child. Instead of Corrie it was Caroline. But that possibly could have been a typo or maybe a nickname or maybe he was had Lily with someone else earlier and something happened to her and he met Corrie. On the 1910 census his name is listed as George T. Thornton and he was listed as a widow.
I know this for a fact from great great aunt Fannie Mae Thornton who is listed. Before she passed in January 1985 I had the honor and priviledge of interviewing her regarding her parents and siblings. I did not ask her who her grandparents were. (I hate that I did'nt). Because I am having to due diligently research who's George's and Corrie's parent were. I ordered my great grandmothers (Minnie B. Thornton who is on the list) death certificate and her mothers maiden name was not listed. I also ordered my aunt Fannie Mae Thornton death certificate in which her neighbor whom took care of her in Columbus, Georgia listed her mothers name as Carrie Whoton. I could not find a Carrie Whoton on the census as of yet. I have pictures of my aunt Fannie Mae Thornton, and her brother Joseph Thornton only.

George T. Thornton b:1853 Georgia
Corrie Thornton b:1864 Georgia
Lily Thornton b:1879 Georgia
Depsy Thornton b:1882 Georgia
Minnie B. Thornton b:1885 Georgia d:1936
Joseph G. Thornton b:1887 Georgia d:1963
Jesse Thornton b:1889 Georgia
Hattie M. Thornton b:1891 Georgia
Felter Thornton b:1893 Georgia
Fannie M. Thornton b:1896 Georgia d:1985
Clifford Thornton b:1900 Georgia

Any additional information you find will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Valyncia
