Other facts


Married Noname THORNTON


  • Tory's grave appears in the Lakeview Cemetery with other members of her family.  All their stones have the same format, and helpfully report the children as children of Daniel and Francis Green.  The name on the gravestone is Tory E Thornton, indicating she had married before she died at the age of 16.

    "I did learn an interesting fact about the Greens in the Lakeview Cemetery in Marietta.  The Greens were moved there from a family cemetery located south of Marietta at some point.  The Love County historian was invited to our Chickasaw family reunion & we were discussing families in Love County.  The Greens came up & she told me about an article in the Marietta Monitor that told about the cemetery."
    --  Kati Jackson Cain, email to cousins Orville Boyd Jenkins and Marion Mixon, 7 July 2017

    I have found no documentation of Tory's husband.  Her middle name is reported by another Green family researcher, Cindy Pannell, as Elizabeth.  I expect Tory is short for Victoria.

    Gravestone of Tory E (Green) Thornton, Lakeview Cemetery, Marietta, Love, Oklahoma
    "Tory E Green  daughter of Daniel & Francis Green Born Feb 7,1870  Died Aug 30, 1886"

    I have been unable to discover any information about Tory's husband.  She was buried in the Green family group in a single grave, with the same epitaph format as most other children of the family.
