Thurl Gorden was born in Indiana, probably Milford. [Living] Gorden doesn't know how long they were there since Grandpa Gorden[William L. Gorden] was what they called a church planter, establishing new churches and so forth. He knew Minnie Gorden (Minnie Sinton Gorden), but not Grandpa. He spent weekends with her in the summer, and got poison ivy on his behind. The kids went swimming where his grandmother lived when he was born. Uncle Emanuel and Aunt Rose lived next door. Grandma Minnie lived with one they called Uncle George who was blind. -From [Living] Gorden June 2011
