My ggrandfather was Thornton Bright (B.1837), and he married Mary Louis Doublin (b. 1856). Mary was born in Graves Co.,Ky; but it is not known where Thorton was born in KY nor when or where the couple married.He may have been in Marion Co., MO, for a brief period of time around 1870. The couple had four children: Hopkins(b.1883), Eddie (b.1885), Mary Beatrice(b.1886), and Thornton C.(b. 1889). Hopkins was born in IL, but the other three children were born in Livingston Co., KY. I strongly suspect there is a tie-in to Hopkins Bright who was in the census reports of 1810, 1830, 1840, and 1850 reports in KY, but no records exist to prove it. Other names that crop up in Livingston Co. are William Bright and William T. Bright, but I don't know the connection. Could someone please help to clear up the mystery?
