Family members listed in William Thornton's will:
- daughter Franke Randolph
- daughter Betty
- daughter Polley Spier
- son William
- son Freddrick
- wife Salley Thornton
- daughter Cloye [Chloe?]
Sadly, four slaves were also mentioned:
- negro woman called Fan
- negro woman Dinea
- negro girl called Hanner [Hannah?]
- negro boy Charles
- "to my son William Fifty acors Land that I bought of Berry"
- "to my son Freddrick Fifty achors of land that I bought of Kinner Collens"
Interestingly, two of the three witness were females:
- Tho[ma]s Holstead
- Betty Coath [her mark]

All of these people and pieces of land need to be further researched. And, I'm making progress on my Virginia research!
