Visiting West Point

Today I went in search of some of my deceased Thornton relatives in the West Point area.  I made stops at the circuit & chancery offices where I gathered marriage records and obituaries from the old newspapers, the library where I verified the cemetery plot info on a map and browsed some local history items, and Greenwood Cemetery where I photographed some markers.  Then I went and met a "live" cousin I'd never met before!  All in all - it was a successful day!
