Robert THORNHILL from South Carolina married Penny MIDDLETON on September 22, 1813 in Amite County, Mississippi.
They lived in Pike County and Franklin County, Mississippi.
I have no idea who Robert's parents where or when he died.
Robert's last listing as head of household in a US census in Franklin County, Mississippi was in 1850.
The 1850 census doesn't list relationships.
It is assumed that Margaret (born about 1820), Middleton (born about 1822), Priscilla (born about 1830), Martha (born about 1832) and Nancy (born about 1834) are their children.
Details from the 1820 census (Pike County) indicate that there were 1 male under 10 and 2 females under 10 in that household.
Details from the 1830 census (Franklin County) indicate that there were 2 males under 10, 2 females under ten and 1 female from 10 to 20 in that household.
Details from the 1840 census (Franklin County) indicate that there where 1 male 15-20, 1 female under 5, 2 females 5 to 10, 1 female 10 to 15 and 2 females 15 to 20 in the household (children-1 male and 6 females).
There were 3 other Thornhill families listed in Pike County, Mississippi census in the 1820 census (it makes me wonder if the Thornhill's in Pike County were related to our Franklin County Thornhill's)
There are no other Thornhill families in Franklin County, Mississippi in the 1830 census.
There are 7 Thornhill families in Pike County in the 1830 census.
There are no other Thornhill families in Franklin County, Mississippi in the 1840 census.
There are no cemetery records for this family.
It's assumed that they are buried on private land.
It you have any information to add, please let me know or comment here.
