Hi Andrea,

I do not see Andrew in the 1900 census. In 1910 he's a ward in Dallas Co., TX. Below him is the name T. B. Thornell, 8 years old. This could be his brother. I find no match for T. B. in any other census.

World War I Draft Registration Card:

Name: Andrew Jackson Thornell
County: Milam
State: Texas
Birthplace: Texas, Victoria County
Birth Date: 1 Jun 1897
FHL Roll Number: 1983490
DraftBoard: 0
Age: 21
Birthplace of Father: Texas
Employer: For Himself
Nearest Relative: Mrs. A. J. Thornell
Height/Build: Tall/Medium
Color of Eyes/Hair: Blue/Dark
Signature: Andrew Jackson Thornell
Date: June 5th, 1918

I assume this is Andrew & the "S" is an error.

Social Security Death Index:

His wife........

Texas Death Index:

Unfortunately, I don't see a Death Certificate for him, but you can view Lillie's here: (Maiden name Akins)

You'll also find D.C.'s for 2 of their children, Dorothy Lucille Thornell Kelly & William S. Thornell.

It looks like William had a daughter named Melissa Ann. The last I find of her is that she's married to Timothy H. Romero. The last child I see born to them was in Jefferson County. The below person lives in Port Neches, which is in Jefferson County. You might want to try & contact her.

If you're desperate to find his parents, you could get a copy of his SS application to see what it says. The fee is $27.00. If you're interested, here's the site for ordering.
