Hi I am Arvin Leon "Scooter" Thornton Jr. I live in Thornton, Colorado. I am a software developer by day, and I collect family members in the evenings and weekends. I am researching the Thornton, Cruse, Mohler, Shoaf, Davis, Bourland, Ray, Michael, Carter, Melluish / Melhuish, and McCloskey / McCluskey surnames.
I am fortunate in that I am able to travel outside the U.S. in performance of my duties in land administration. Every time I have a day off I am lurking about in the local cemeteries with camera in hand - a love I inherited from my mother and grandmother. One of my great pleasures is when I can help someone locate their family members. If I have helped you in this way, please drop me a line and share your story. Also, I am more than happy to transfer any memorial upon request, if you promise to take of it.
What an excellent resource is Find-A-Grave! I have gained so much from it and I try to give back as much as possible. I am happy to share what I have with you. Please feel free to use any of the photographs I have provided, for any personal, non-commercial purpose, but kindly credit me as the photographer as follows: "Photo courtesy of Arvin Leon Thornton Jr., Find-a-Grave member #48110330". I only ask to be credited so that if someone has a question about the photograph, they can locate the source.
