Thanks for your prompt response.
I should have mentioned that I accessed the Tombstone Transcription Project Cheatham Co., TN. I searched the cemeteries for the surname Thornton. I found a listing for Florence Thornton in the Dozier Cemetery. I was unable to find the burial information for the other Thornton individuals.
I also accessed Findagrave.com in the hopes of finding one or more of the Thorntons.
Perhaps someone has a cemetery book for Cheatham County and is willing to do a look up for me.
Thanks in advance.
