Birth*10 April 1861William was born on 10 April 1861 at Accomac, Acc Co, VA. His tombstones shows 10 Apr 1861, the 1880 census puts his birth at 1865, and his 1889 marriage puts it at 1861..2,3

Marriage*24 April 1889He married Sarah Frances Ross, daughter of Levin Jacob Ross and Elizabeth Tatham, on 24 April 1889 at Temperanceville, Acc Co, VA. He was shown as William T. Thornton, a 28 year old farmer, the son of William T. & Elizabeth Thornton and she was shown as Sarah Ross, age 17, the daughter of Levin J. Elizabeth Ross. They were married by W.F. Hayes..1 
Reported birth*18 February 1890William reported a birth on 18 February 1890 at First District, Acc Co, VA. It was on this date that Wm. Thos. Thornton Jr. reported the birth of his son LeRoy T. Thornton..5 
Reported death*7 September 1896William reported a death on 7 September 1896 at Temperanceville, Acc Co, VA. It was on this date that Wm. Thornton reported the death of his father, Wm. Thos. Thornton, who was shot at the age of 60 years..6 
Land bought*1899William bought land in 1899 at Oak Hall, Acc Co, VA. In describing the ownership of tract A172 (north of Oak Hall), Whitelaw states that the part of the tract once owned by Samuel Beavans, was later owned by Ralph Jenkins, William Silverthorne, James White, Mary Ann Broadwater (wife of David), Louisa M. Snead, and finally in 1899 the property was bought by the late W.T. Thornton. The house on the property (A172A) was know as the Broadwater or Thornton Place. The brick end of an old house stood about a hundred yards east of the highway, but it has since disappeared. The outside of the wall had the bricks laid in Flemish bond with glazed headers, which in the gable were in lines parallel with the roof lines. On the inside of the wall was a bake oven alongside the fireplace. The character of the brickwork, and the fact that originally the house consisted of only one room on the first floor, indicate an early date of construction, so it probably dated from the time of the first William Beavans, who died in 1745. The Lane-Beavans land was bounded on the north by the north head branch of Euwamus Creek, which extended across the highway..7 
Death*14 April 1930William died on 14 April 1930 at age 69. According to Mary Frances Carey, a list of heirs shows William T. Thornton was survived by a wife Sarah Frances Thornton and 5 children: Leroy Thornton, age 40; Harry T. Thornton, age 38; Mary Hall, wife of Stuart Hall, age 33; Wm. T.
