I am so thankful for your reply. He is my great-grandfather, and much a mystery to many of us. My father, Gerald Wayne Thornton, is the son of Charles William Thornton, who is the son of Charles Miller Thornton. We all live in the Tacoma area. I only have two old photographs of Charles Miller Thornton, and a few stories. I would very much enjoy hearing more about your relationship with C. M. Thornton. Would you be willing to correspond by regular email?
My name is Travis Charles Thornton

I hope to hear more from you soon.
