Is it OK to insert deliberately orphaned families?

I've been trying to find a link between 2 families and mine, but there appears to be none. I have accumulated quite a bit of info (2/3 generations), but it will link to no one.  The odd name is the first name of Thornley. Only 3 people with it seem to exist - all born in Ohio.

Maybe calling it an orphan family is incorrect, but I've done with the data I have what I can, I really don't want to pursue this any longer and just hope it might help someone else.

As long as they are sourced it is fine. They will be connected to everyone else eventually :)

When I  put my data on WikiTree my two Thornley's became one. I had missed an obvious connection.  Now if I could only connect this Thornley Mattson-468 to my Thornley Mattson-397 (GGGgrandfather). I suspect they may be Uncle and nephew, but I have zero evidence.
