Re: Looking for parents of James Louis C. Thornton who was born in Fayetteville, AR
Like Emil, I'm wondering where Gladys might be?Did James give her to a family member to raise after Minnie #1 died?

According to the 1910 Choctaw OK census, buth James and Minnie#2 had been m 2x; m 3 yrs.She has 3 ch/1surviving.
This is a possibility.Even tho James b 1874, it's always a good idea to check earlier census.
This is a longshot, but you never know.
1870 Mountain, Washington Co AR
Jesse 26 TN; farmer
Sarah 23 AR
M E 1 AR [female]
I haven't found James, M E [Minnie Etta], or the rest of the family 1880.James probably raised by another family.
Minnie Etta TROUT

She had son Harry TROUT b c 1898; then married a CROFT/CRAFT and had more ch, but died a TROUT.Some of her ch were b AR/OK.

If you know where/when James died, his death cert and/obit might name his parents, altho he didn't seem to know where they were born per census.
