Treasure Chest Thursday: Will of Philip Thornton, Alton, Illinois, 1892

Philip Thornton was a brother to my 3rd great-grandfather, James Patrick Thornton.  They were both born in Ireland and immigrated to the United States.

Philip’s wife was named Johanna, but I believe she was his second wife, as his first wife was Margaret.  His children were James Paul, Michael, Mary, and Edward Charles.  He lived in Alton, Madison County, Illinois and ran a grocery store.

    I’m very jealous. I have yet to find a will for any of my ancestors, but I keep looking! :)ReplyCancel
