THORNTON, Mrs Sally--died 13 Sept. 1891 at the home of her son, Jerry T. Thornton near Clarksdale, Missouri, aged 98 years. She was born in South Carolina in 1793 and with her father, Peter Todd moved to Madison County, Kentucky when a small child.

In Madison County, Kentucky she married William Thornton and they moved to Callaway County, Missouri. They lived there until 1840, when they moved to DeKalb Count, Missouri. This was 5 years before DeKalb was organized.

She raised 9 children. Her husband preceded her in death by several years. She was 6 years old when George Washington died and lacked only 4 years of being as old as the Constitution of our country.
