    William Pierce Thornton 1849-1936) was my great grandfather and lived in the Cross Anchor section of Spartanburg County and kept a journal for many years (excerpts published in Woodruff, SC newspaper several years ago). I would love to know if that journal still exhists and where it might be located. I would also like to know if there is a Thornton family bible or other "private" records of the early Thorntons in Spartanburg County. I know that Wm. P. Thornton's father was named Samuel and was born in South Carolina in 1800 but have been unable to find who his parents were (his mother is noted to be from Ireland on 1880 Federal Census) and father from South Carolina. Is anyone aware of any private records that might contain information about Samuel Thornton (1800-1895) or his parents, or are there any knowledgeable relatives or historians in the area? Thank you for any assistance.
    William Cooper Thornton, Jr. 828-668-3121.
