Singing Thorntons

Thornton siblings - Nora, Ira and Thomas - were caught on camera singing at church, probably Sandy Springs Baptist Church, and the picture was shared with me by Glenda Johnson, Nora Thornton Johnson's granddaughter. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a video tape, or even an audio tape, of this trio's performance? The Thorntons were a musical family, and Nora was said to have had a beautiful alto voice. Nora's children were also musically talented. Click here for a previous post about their musical talents.

The lumber in the back wall and that long hardwood floor looks like the old Ryan's School House. May have had a Thornton-Johnson singing there.

The white pine boards in the background and the hardwood floors may indicate Ryan's Well School House. Perhaps a Thornton-Johnson family singing.
