Connection to the Hunter – Nurse Thornton is named on Muswellbrook Citizens’ Memorial.   A Pearl M’ Thornton was born to Sydney and Annie Thornton at Muswellbrook in 1889.  The age and place of birth fit, but further research is required to confirm that Pearl M Thornton and Nurse Thornton are the same person.  There is no record of a Nurse Thornton on the AIF Nominal Roll, Embarkation Roll or in service records.  Do you know more?
