MARY SULLIVAN THORNTON

MARY SULLIVAN THORNTON

No location or date given.

I love this photo. A simple, yet graceful portrait.

There is a Mary Sullivan, born about 1895 in Cornish NH, who married Herbert Thornton in 1913 at age 18, in Vermont. I think this may be her. If so, her parents were Michael E. Sullivan of England and Edith M. Hudson of Vermont.

Herbert was 27 years old, and this was his 2nd marriage. His parents were Norman Thornton and Clara Root.

Mary's gravestone says she was born in 1897, which would have made her only 16 at the time of the wedding.

    1. I have added many photos to Find-a-Grave. I prefer to let the family members add the photos themselves because the faces of their relatives is such a personal thing. But after a certain number of years has passed, and I have made every effort to reach the family and place the photo, then I will consider doing it myself, and hope that some family member will see it there and contact me about the image. I have had Mary Sullivan Thornton with me over 6 years now, so perhaps the time is right to add her there.
