Sharon: It appears that Dr. Charles Hubbard Thornton and Harriet Columbus Drake had 4 sons and 4 daughters. ANNA ELIZABETH THORNTON (B.6/22/1846D.7/29/1923) married JOHN HUTSELL CARLISLE in Clinton MO on 3/22/1866.[These are my great-grandparents and I have their family Bible.] SUSAN CATHERINE THORNTON married in 1876 to REV. JOHN THOMPSON. MARY ROSE THORNTON married to JAMES WILLIAM JENNINGS. DAVID DRAKE THORNTON. WILLIAM PROTTSMAN THORNTON married to THEODOSIA E. MILLER. OCTAVIS YOUNG THORNTON. HATTIE DRAKE THORNTON.
