Looking for the parents of Miriam C m. Thomas F Thornton in 1888. Miriam b OCt 1863 Missouri

+3 votes
From a 1900 census it shows that her father was from Kentucky and her mother was from Illinois. They lived in Clarksville ( Clarksdale) MO. They had children: Elzie, John W F, and Earl B and the children were all born in the Clarksville/Clarksdale, MO.  Does anyone know when Clarksdale was changed from Clarksville? I think at one time it was also called Thorntonville. There is a Thornton cemetery west of town on a spur to Stewartsville, MO. Us to live in Clarskdale, Mo when I was a kid, up until about 4th grade.
