Horton Family History

Updated 8/22/04 by Scott Owens Anrkee@aol.com

Descendants of Jesse Horton II

Generation No. 1

1. JESSE4 HORTON II (AMOS3, AMOS2, DANIEL1) was born January 7, 1773 in Hanging Rock, Lancaster District, South Carolina1, and died August 2, 1850 in Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama1. He married (1) BETSY FOWLER January 13, 1798 in Wake County, North Carolina. She was born Abt. 1778, and died October 22, 1798 in Wake County, North Carolina. He married (2) SARAH ELIZABETH CHAMBLEE March 15, 1799 in Wake County, North Carolina, daughter of ISAAC CHAMBLEE and LUCRETIA JONES. She was born 1777 in Wake County, North Carolina, and died March 17, 1862 in Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama1.

Notes for JESSE HORTON II:

In 1800, the Jesse Horton household in Wake County, NC, consisted of Jesse, Sarah, Jane Emeline, and a young gentleman 16-26 years old, possibly one of Jesse's or Sarah's brothers. At this time Jesse owned no slaves. This same year Jesse served as the administrator of the estate of Isaac Chamblee his father-in-law, who died intestate that year. Jesse received 36 acres "in right of his wife."

In 1816 Jesse Horton was taxed for 259 3/4 acres (probably someone else's) plus 919 acres. In 1817 and 1818 he was taxed for only the 919 acres. In 1819 his taxable acreage was 1,161, as it was in 1820, plus 4 slaves.

In 1821 Jesse was taxed for 1,331 acres and 5 slaves. During this year Jesse served as executor of the estate of his deceased father Amos Horton (Jr.). According to the will of Amos Horton, written March 28, 1821 and was probated August 18 of that year. Jesse received "all my lands on the north side of the Road, by his paying Drury Horton $50, and also two negros Barn and Eady." This will, of which Jesse was executor, was probated in August 1822. In 1822 Jesse was not listed in the tax lists, having moved to Alabama, but in 1823-25 his brother Hartwell was taxed "for Jesse Horton" several hundred acres of land. Jesse had taken his slaves to Alabama. According to family sources, Jesse moved his family to Blount County, Alabama, in 1822. His youngest daughter, Eliza, was born in 1823 there in Blount County. Other Hortons settled in Blount County and Jesse may have simply stayed there until Sarah delivered and was able to travel to move on to Greene County.

In 1824 the Jesse Horton family, including 8 slaves, moved to Greene County, Alabama, settling in the vicinity of Pleasant Ridge in the northeastern corner of the county. Jesse appeared on the tax lists of Wake County, North Carolina, until 1822 when he possibly moved to Blount County, Alabama. In late 1825 Jesse travelled back to Wake County to sell the remainder of his land and settle his affairs in that state, concluding two land sales in January 1826.

The 1830 Census of Greene County, Alabama, lists Jesse Horton with three sons (Jesse Habbord, 11, William, 18, and John D., 16) and three daughters (Elizabeth M., Mariah, and MaryAnn Rebecca) with his wife Sarah. Jesse owned 19 slaves at this time.

On December 1, 1830, Jesse acquired 79.87 acres of land in Pleasant Ridge through the Tuscaloosa Land Office. Jesse purchased 320 acres from David Scott and Edward Sims on August 4, 1831 for $1600. On January 10, 1832, he acquired 158.67 more acres nearby. Jesse gained 40.03 acres through the Tuscaloosa Office on March 30, 1837. Later that year, on August 18, Jesse purchased 235 acres from Albert, Hamilton, Mary, and Sarah McGowen for $2000.

In 1840 the Jesse Horton household consisted of Jesse, Sarah, William and his wife Marcia, and a boy 5-10 years old, possibly George Washington Horton, son of Elizabeth and John Henry. Jesse owned 23 slaves this year. On March 2 of this year Jesse purchased land from his son-in-law George W. Rives, husband of daughter Candice.

On April 21, 1841 Jesse purchased 285 acres from the Achilles Edwards' estate for $1650. In June of 1847 Jesse conveyed through "natural love and affection" 240 acres along with three Negro slaves: Abe, 24, Harriet, 20, and Esther, 14 to his daughter Candice, wife of George W. Rives. These were put in a trust, with son John D. as trustee, for the life of Candice. The proceeds of these properties were to be conveyed to Candice or her heirs. Apparently about this time George and Candice moved to Morehouse Parish, Louisiana, and Jesse felt some need to provide for her.

By 1850, all the children were gone, and Jesse and Sarah lived on their plantation with 25 slaves, 13 of whom were of age to be field hands. In the 1850 U.S. Census Agricultural Returns, Jesse Horton is shown with the following, the yearly production for 1849:

Land: 300 acres improved, 360 ac. unumproved, total value $7,980.00. (tot.660a)

Equiptment: $315;

Livestock: 5 horses, 3 mules, 11 milk cows, 4 oxen, 26 other cattle, 35 sheep,

95 swine, total livestock value: $1.120.00

Produce: 2,000 bu corn, 511 bu oats, 18 bales cotton, 50 lb wool, 50 bu peas,

10 bu potatoes, 350 bu yams (sweet potatoes), 150 lb butter, 200 lb

honey.

Generation No. 2

2. JANE EMELINE5 HORTON (JESSE4, AMOS3, AMOS2, DANIEL1) was born 1800 in Wake County, North Carolina, and died January 1830 in Franklin County, Alabama. She married JESSE JONES December 25, 1818 in Wake County, North Carolina, son of WILLIAM JONES and DINAH VADEN. He was born May 20, 1796 in Wake County, North Carolina, and died May 17, 1856 in Franklin County, Alabama.

Notes for JESSE JONES:
For example, Jane Emeline Horton's husband was Jesse Jones, not Thomas Jesse. I do not know where this rumor started, but there is no proof I have ever seen that his first name was Thomas. He did not serve in the Civil War, but may have served in the Indian Wars in the 1830's. He would have been close to 70 years old at the time of the Civil War and was not born in time to serve in the Rev. War.

In addition, it is extremely unlikely that Jane Emeline died in Franklin Co. or that their kids were born there as he did not purchase land there
until 1849 after Jane's death and after his second marriage to Rhoda Bolton, the sister of his son-in-law Benjamin Littleberry Bolton. Rhoda
was living with her parents in Pickens (later Greene Co.) at the time of their marriage; her parents never moved to Franklin Co. although most of
their children did starting around 1840. Jesse was the son of Wm. Jones and Dinah (Vaden) Jones; their graves are marked today in the
Greenhill-Ezzell Cemetery where they were moved from the Jones Cemetery after the TVA thought the Jones Cemetery would be flooded after Cedar Creek became a reservoir.

There is some possibility that some of Jesse's and Jane's kids may have been born in GA. This is something we need to research further. They may have lived there a short while before moving to Pickens/Greene. You also have the birth dates incomplete or inaccurate for Jesse and Jane's kids: Emeline was born 12/15/1819, Dinah Maisy Jane was born 3/2/1824, Sarah Ann was born 2/9/1827, and Wm. Lewis (note spelling) was born 1/24//1830. Since Jesse married Rhoda in Pickens/Greene @1832, it is extremely unlikely that Wm. Lewis was born in Fayette Co. AL. These dates came either from Benjamin Littleberry's Bible or from their cemetery headstones. The middle names came from legal documents such as the power of atty. they all signed for James Massey, Sarah's husband, to get their inheritance from their grandfather's estate.

By they way, Jane Bolton married Wm. Carroll Hester; you have a blank in her grandmother's will as to his first name.

I notice you have a more specific death date for Jane Horton Jones than I do; could you tell me where you got yours? We merely had that it was before 1832. She probably died in childbirth with Wm. Lewis. By the way, Jesse Horton's "marriage" to Betsy Fowler, as far as I know, is evidenced only by a N.C. marriage bond. Since he married Sarah Chamblee a mere 3 months later, and no children are purported to be born by Betsy Fowler, isn't it possible that this was merely a license to marry that was never used and that his marriage to Sarah Chamblee was his only marriage?

Dinah and Andrew Turner Bonds had 12 kids: I have them if you want them.

Sarah Ann and James Massey had 14 kids: I have them if you want them.

Wm. Lewis died May 5, 1853 and never married or had kids. Emeline and

Benjamin Littleberry had at least 7 kids; there was another one listed on the census that was not in their Bible. If he is their child, that would be 8 kids. I also have them if you want them.

Enough info for now except that we have the Bolton family reunion each year on land owned by Jesse Jones and Rhoda Bolton Jones on Cedar Creek in Franklin Co. It is wonderful. -- Carla Tate

Hello,

I have just been viewing your SLAUGHTER family information on Ancestry.com and, while I am not sure that they are the same, there is a strong chance that your John William SLAUGHTER and first wife, Susan are the same as my great, great grandparents, John M. SLAUGHTER and wife, Susan CROUCH, or were, possibly related. My Susan was the daughter of Samuel and Sarah CROUCH from North Carolina and my John M. SLAUGHTER was the son of Owen SLAUGHTER and born in North Carolina. He and Susan had a daughter named Susan and John's brother had a son named William or John William. My great grandfather was Hutson/Hudson H./Harris? SLAUGHTER, born in March of 1844 in Greene Co., AL and Susan SLAUGHTER died 10 days later, probably due to complications of childbirth. I believe they were also in Pickens Co., AL. Hutson/Hudson SLAUGHTER joined the Confederate Army at age 16 years and married Claranda 'Clara' WILLIAMS, born: ??, parents: ?? They were the parents of my grandfather, Louis Hector SLAUGHTER who married three times, the third was my grandmother, Ethel Rosalee HATTEN (m. WOMACK.)

If you think that there is a connection with our SLAUGHTER families please contact me. Sincerely, Bellinda Myrick Barnett

This was forwarded to me by a researcher of an additional SLAUGHTER line I am working and this is of our family, thought you would be interested if you hadn't already seen it. I believe the preacher that is referred to is George Webb SLAUGHTER.

THOMAS ACEY BROWN "I was born in Rusk County in 1860," says Mr. Thomas Acey Brown. My father was a ful-blooded Englishman and mother was Scotch Irish. "I was about 17 years old when I left Rusk County ,, looking for a ranch job. I meandered over into the Palo Pinto and Ranger section, where I worked for the old Slaughter outfit. Everybody knowed that Slaughter bunch all over the states. The old man was a Baptist preacher, C. C. Slaughter was a banker in Dallas and was worth over three million. Lum, another son, was the black sheep, did a little gambling and everything else that came his way. Bill and John were ranchmen, on a large scale. The whole outfit owned a great part of Texas . They just kept right on, right on growing up with Texas . That's why they were so famous. I worked with that outfit for several years during round-up times. "Old preacher Slaughter and Ross captured an Indian boy when he was just a little shaver; he had growed to be about 25 years old when I worked for them. This Indian boy was a mighty fine rider, did most all the breaking of Slaughter's horses. He never wanted to go back to his tribe after he was grown. "When I was up in Palo Pinto County , I heard about an Indian climbing over a high rail fence when a guard shot him, and he died standin' straight up, leanin' against that fence; then the settlers tied him to a horse's tall and dragged his into town. They all gathered around, skinned him, and made quirts out of his hide. "Yes and I heard about them Indians a-skinnin' a white man alive and him a livin' over it too; don't know if it was so or not, I just heard it. "I knowed Jessie and Frank James, Sam Bass's bunch, (Blackie) Frank Jackson, and Warren Jackson, they were all train robbers of the Texas Pacific. These robbers and Indians would get back in them Palo Pinto hills and nobody could get 'em out without puttin' hounds in after 'em. "The killin' of Sam Bass was all a plot, they didn't get him fair. Old Murphy plotted a way to catch him, went into Round Rock to get a shave and gave officers a signal when he passed by. The officers surrounded the bunch and killed Sam. Then Jackson took a shot at Murphy when he was in the barber chair, but didn't kill him. "There was lots of wild people in this country when I came out here but they didn't get out much. These wasn't bad fellers; anyway we didn't think so then. They'd come out and do a little robbin' and give any poor person in need some money; they never killed unless they were forced to. Every one of them boys was drove to doin' what they done; ain't like the skunks now-a-days hold you up for two-bits, then killed you for not havin' it. These here preachers! If I don't roast 'em when they come to my house a-tellin' us to pray. 'Pray, pray, don't forget to pray, brother! Just go to it boys but don't forget to pray when you got to the forks of the road.' Why, Clyde and Bonnie prayed every day-can't tell by that. These here meetin's where they get down and roll and then have to drag 'em out in the brush and fan 'em. Bah! Ain't no more to them than these doctors hum-buggin' around. Why, here I am 78 years old, takin' medicine for my kidneys and it ain't a-doin' me no good. I can't hold out to walk at all and I used to be as good as a horse. I've slept in wet blankets too long I guess, 'til I'm just dead now, still a-walkin' but I'm dead just the same. Sometimes I do take a tumble but just get up and keep a-goin'. I don't mean to fool with them doctors though. Oh! These doctors and preachers; it's a wonder to me anyone is a-livin' now-a-days. One will tell you, you are goin' to hell and the other quack a-givin' somethin' he doesn't know if it will kill or cure. Then they talk about the bad boys robbin' trains long ago. I know which I'm for. "After I left the Palo Pinto Country, I went on down around Fort McKavett and the Brady section a-workin' for Dwight Benjamin. There were only two old boxed cabins at Fort McKavett at that time. "A bunch of Indians came through them parts and killed several white men and just cleaned Brady of horses. "An old man was goin' down the road in a wagon when three Indians a-walkin' and two on horseback went up and killed the old feller, cut his horses loose and took one of them; the other one got away and ran home. The family knew something had happened. The same horse ran home once before when Indians attacked the old man and he was saved that time. The Indians went on and made their next raid at Salt Gap, killing a Mexican and taking a bunch of horses from there. The soldiers from Fort Concho and Fort McKavett followed but they were led further and further away from water until they were starved out. The old broken down horses were all they ever got back. "There was plenty of trouble over that wire cuttin' business and nobody was ever supposed to know who done the cuttin'. "They didn't have many ranches in them days, camps were scattered over the range and they tried to stretch a little wire around some of the land and make a ranch. It didn't do no good for a long time. This was the cause of the cattlemen and sheepmen's little fussin'. It didn't amount to much where I was, of course the cowmen would run the sheep off their range but they'd come right back since there wasn't no fences. "Speakin' of stampedes, I never seen one happen with the cattle on home grounds. When they were on strange ground the least little noise would just scare the life out of 'em. "I've rode some mighty bad horses in my days; never struck but a few I couldn't tame. I always tamed them before I rode 'em. These rodeo horses are not so bad. Four or five men get in the stall and go to throwin' saddle, ropes, and stuff all over them and get 'em scared to death before they bring 'em out. The boys used to say I could conjure them. Why, l've led a-many a-one right out of a lot when he had never had as much as a halter on before. I pet him up a little, get right on and they never pitched a bit. These rodeo horses think they supposed to pitch and go right ahead and do it. "I knowed Booger Red real well; I just lived across the mountain from him, when he lived on a little ranch out from San Angelo. He was makin' merry at Christmas time and bored a hole in a tree, filled it full of gun powder, then struck a match to it, and it blowed him up. That's why he was so ugly. He naturally was red headed and freckle faced, then when this powder black specked him and blowed both eyes side-ways, he sure was a booger. He was a mighty good rider when he was a boy and I guess he did get to be a real rider after he had so much practice in his shows. They say he had a boy that was about as good as he was. "I went back to East Texas and got married when I was 37 years old, and settled down. I came back out here about 25 years ago and have stuck pretty close since." (From WPA Life Histories, interview with Mr. Thomas Acey Brown, Tennyson, Texas, interviewed, February 1, 1938.)

Candace Gregory firegrl@sierratel.com    http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/g/r/e/Candace-L-Gregory   Researching the surnames of:
GREGORY, PRATER, COURTNEY, DECOURTNEY, SMITH, WILLIAMS, WICKER, SANDIFER, SLAUGHTER, MASON, CAIN and many, many more. . .

I am still looking for any information regarding my great grandfather,   Hudson/Hutson H.(Harris?) SLAUGHTER. Information was shared with me a few   months ago that Hudson's stepmother was Elizabeth Marcia HORTON, (daughter  of Jesse HORTON and, I believe, Elizabeth CHAMBLEE,) and Elizabeth was the  widow and 2nd wife of Reverend John Madison HENRY and she married her 2nd husband, my 2nd great grandfather, John M. SLAUGHTER, born: abt. 1795 in NC, (son of Mary McDANIEL/McDONALD and husband: Owen SLAUGHTER, II,) after Susan L. CROUCH, my 2nd great grandmother, died: 23 Mar 1844, at abt. age 29 years  old, died abt. 10 days after Hudson was born on 13 Mar 1844, apparently due to complications during childbirth. Susan L. CROUCH, born: abt. 1815 in NC  was the daughter of Sarah ? and Samuel CROUCH, born: abt. 1785. Hudson's father, John M. SLAUGHTER, born: abt. 1795, married Elizabeth Marcia HORTON shortly after Susan's death and they had a daughter named Marcia/Marsha SLAUGHTER that I am told died as a young girl after her father, John M. SLAUGHTER, died in abt. 1846/47 and Marsha/Marcia SLAUGHTER, (born: abt. 1845/46) would have died sometime after the 1850 census came out which showed she and her brother, George Washington HORTON, and their mother, Elizabeth Marcia HORTON HENRY SLAUGHTER, with Elizabeth as the head of the household but the information that I received does not show that Hudson/Hutson H. SLAUGHTER, who would have been abt. 6 years old at the time, was in their household. Does anyone know where Hudson SLAUGHTER was then? Does anyone know how Marsha SLAUGHTER died? And how her father, John M. SLAUGHTER died?  I have wondered greatly about what happened to this little boy, Hudson/Hutson H. SLAUGHTER, my great grandfather, after his father's death or, perhaps, before. I have not yet been able to find out if he went to live with his birth-mother's family after his mother's death or, indeed, did live with his father and his stepmother and I am just assuming that after his father's death he went to live somewhere else as he was not on the census of 1850. But I would very much like to know what happened to Hudson. It was a such lot for a little boy to have endured....the loss of his mother by death at his birth, the loss of his father by death at abt. age 3 years, the possible loss of his stepmother in his life who, possibly, was the only mother he had ever known by the time he was 6 years old, the loss by death of his half-sister, Marsha SLAUGHTER, sometime as a young boy and whatever else came his way by the time he joined the Confederate Army at age 16 years old. Then my mother tells me that there was, apparently, a son of Hudson SLAUGHTER and  wife, Clarissa "Clara" WILLIAMS named Henry SLAUGHTER was killed in a horseback riding accident at age 16 years old. Their 2nd son, Louis Hector SLAUGHTER, who married 2 times with children before he married my grandmother, Ethel Rosalee HATTEN whose first husband was Joseph Marion  WOMACK and they lived in Winn Parish and West Carroll Parish, LA. As far as I know Henry and Louis were the only two children of Clarissa "Clara" WILLIAMS and Henry SLAUGHTER. Ethel Rosalee HATTEN and Louis Hector SLAUGHTER had two children, Patrick LaMoyne SLAUGHTER, and my mother, Ethel LaVerne SLAUGHTER. After Louis's death in 1937 my grandmother never remarried and she died in 1950.  Also, just in case, does anyone know anything about the family of the above mentioned Clarissa "Clara" WILLIAMS, born: abt. 1845, mother: Elizabeth ? WILLIAMS, was she WILLIAMS by birth, born: abt. 1800 - 1810 in Ohio, and father: William WILLIAMS, born: abt. 1795 in Maryland. There are brothers of Clarissa and they lived in Franklin Parish, LA. There is another Clarissa "Clara" WILLIAMS that married Christopher Columbus "C.C." SLAUGHTER in the late 1800's. I think that Clarissa "Clara" WILLIAMS was descended from  Daniel Green WILLIAMS and I think that the C. C. SLAUGHTER, Jr. may have been the son of Christopher Columbus "C.C." SLAUGHTER, Sr., son of Reverend George Webb SLAUGHTER, who descend from the family that the above mentioned John M. SLAUGHTER and father, Owen SLAUGHTER, II, descend from. My grandfather, Louis Hector SLAUGHTER, who died in his late 60's when my mother, his daughter, LaVerne (Ethel LaVerne) SLAUGHTER, was only 7 years old, but she has always remembered him telling her that C.C. SLAUGHTER and Texas Ranger "Texas" John SLAUGHTER were cousins. This information led me to find the SLAUGHTER family that we descend from after much searching but it seems quite possibly that there was an even closer connection and that may be through this younger C.C. SLAUGHTER that married Clarissa WILLIAMS in Bienville Parish, LA abt. 1897 and Clarissa WILLIAMS' father died in Dallas, TX where the older C.C.'s family lived. It is possible that this younger Mrs. C. C. SLAUGHTER/Clarissa WILLIAMS SLAUGHTER might possibly be a neice or cousin to my great grandmother who was Mrs. Hudson H. SLAUGHTER/Clarissa WILLIAMS SLAUGHTER. Other distinguishing features about this information was that my grandfather, Louis Hector SLAUGHTER, spoke of Indian and French heritage and my mother remembers seeing a picture of what she remembers as one set of grandparents that were very Indian in appearance......and her memory regarding this information was as though it were rather close in time to her father......but I have yet to find that in the SLAUGHTER lineage and I have greatly wondered if the 'secret' might lie within the WILLIAMS lineage. There are HARRIS, WILLIAMS, MADISON, BOLTON, WEBB and many other surnames married into this SLAUGHTER lineage frequently and they apparently cross over into these other lines as well. Any information regarding any of this would be greatly appreciated. In advance, I thank you. Sincerely, Bellinda Myrick - Barnett

He married (1) MARCIA L. FORD January 12, 1838 in Greene County, Alabama, daughter of JOHN FORD and JENSIE KIRKPATRICK.

Notes for WILLIAM HORTON VI:

William Horton was a very successful planter in Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama. He was born in Wake County, North Carolina in 1812. When William was about 10 years old, the family moved to Alabama, settling eventually in Pleasant Ridge, GReene county, in 1824. In

The 1850 U.S. Census listed for William Horton the following, representing the land and production for 1849:
Land: 380 acres improved, 100 acres unimproved, total value: $3,600.00
Equiptment: $635.00
Livestock: 5 horses, 10 mules, 10 milk cows, 6 oxen, 10 other cattle, 23 sheep, 80 swine, total value of livestock: $1,966.00.
Production: 40 bu wheat, 2,000bu corn, 50 bales cotton, 20 lb wool, 300 bu peas, 15 bu potatoes, 900 bu yams (sweet potatoes), 150 lb butter,
45 lb honey.

The 1860 U.S. Census listed for William Horton the following, representing the land and production for 1859:
Land: 1,000 acres improved, 1,100 acres unimproved, total value: $41,000.00
Equiptment: $1,000.00.
Livestock: 13 horses, 32 mules, 13 milk cows, 8 oxen, 13 other cattle, 38 sheep, 350 swine, total value of livestock: $7,100.00.
Production: 300 bu wheat, 50 bu rye, 10,000 bu corn, 255 bales cotton, 69 lb
wool, 1,000bu peas, 25 bu potatoes, 1,000 bu yams (sweet potatoes), 305 lb butter, 3 tons hay.

In 1859, according to unsubstantiated Pickens County newspaper, William Horton purchased "Sipsey Mills," located on the Sipsey River a few miles from Pleasant Ridge, from Colonel Lanier, later commander of the 42nd Alabama Infantry, and his associates. The selling price of $10,000 was paid in coin. This quanitity of hard cash could not be obtained in Greene or Pickens County, and William Horton travelled by streamboat to Mobile where, likely upon credit of sale of his cotton, he got this sum in coin and placed it in one or more nail keggs. On landing at Horton's landing at the Mouth of Sipsey after dark, William Horton, not wishing to travel after sunset, sat upon the keg(s) all night, by some accounts with his pistol drawn, until he could travel safely to the mill north of Pleasant Ridge and settle the agreement with Lanier and associates.

This mill was subsequently burned on the morning of April 6, 1865 by elements of the United States Army, under the command of Brig. Gen. Croxton, who had earlier burned the University of Alabama in Tusculoosa. In reports this mill is referred to as "Lanier's Mill" and "Sipsey Mills." There were apparently two mills on the Sipsey River about two miles apart. A quantity of bacon and flour were taken by Croxton's arsenists. Later that afternoon, while retreating back toward Northport, General Wert Adams' brigade of CSA cavalry engaged Croxton's brigade, driving the Lincolnites further toward Northport until they made a stand at Romulus. At least two ambulances and General Croxton's personal baggage wagon were captured by the Confederates. According to the "Military History of Mississippi 1803-1898" by Dunbar Rowland, the affair occurred thus:

"In the latter part of March, 1865, General Adams marched his brigade, including Wood's Regiment, from Jackson to Macon and West Point, to join General Forrest, and was ordered to meet Croxton's Brigade of the Federal expedition under General Wilson. Adams marched with his command from Columbus to Pickensville, April 5, and on the 6th attacked the rear of Croxton's column, causing it to turn from the Eutaw road toward Tusculoosa. Adams pursued through the day but could not force Croxton to turn and give battle until about dark, when the Federal cavalry halted in a very favorable position. They were soon driven by a gallant charge of Wood's Regiment, in which Captain Luckett fell, leading his squadron. Thence Croxton retreated on the gallop toward Tuscaloosa. The roads were almost impassable. Adams lost 9 killed and 25 wounded. The Federal loss he estimated at 75 killed and captured, and he took all the ambulances and personal baggage of General Croxton.

Colonel Moorman wrote from Canton (Mississippi) May 4: 'Should the war cease now you would have the honor of having won the last victory on Confederate soil and in the Confederate cause.' Thus was the battle near Pleasant Ridge which followed the destruction of the mill of William Horton which he had just purcased six years before.

Land:170 acres improved, 70 acres unimproved, total value: $3,600.00.
Equiptment: $550.00.

Leaving Tuscaloosa April 5, 1865, some of General Croxton's forces passed to the southwest through Pickens County. While at the Sipsey Mill Bridge previously mentioned, General Wirt Adams' command coming from the north overtook the rear guard and after some time consumed in "closing up" a sharp attack was made which developed into a running fight which lasted until 8 o'clock that night.General Croxton here repearted his retreating tactics which took him back to Tuscaloosa. He halted long enough, however, to form an ambuscade the springing of which resulted in the killling of the captain and two men of General Adams' leading company. His own loss was two officers and thirty men, two ambulances, one containing his personal effects including his dress univorm. During one of the melees occurring that afternoon, a Union major became unhorsed and unable to catch a remount, or keep pace with the retreating column, took to the woods afoot and alone. After comparative quiet was restored an old farmer of the neighborhood appeared and learning of the escape, or 'runaway' employing the vernacular of the country in the antebellum period, he determined at once to capture him upon his own initiative. Returning home he took down his hunting horn, one blast of which if not worth a thousand men, at least assembled his pack of hounds. Reaching the late field of action he struck a hot trail and soon had the major treed. Tradition has not preserved the exact language vociferated during the process of capitulation, but it is safe to imagine that it was not modish, or at all conciliatory in character. The major's strenuous protest was not so much against the necessity of unconditional surrender, but the humiliation of being barked at by "nigger-dogs." Love, 1895

(I take it that John D. Horton visited the site of the battle, just down the road from his plantation as can be seen from the map, learned from persons there that this had befallen the major commanding the 6th Kentucky, and returned to his home to assemble his hounds on his own initiative. He then came back to the battlefield site and the hounds found the trail. So the fugitives were captured near the battlefield, not on or near John D .Horton=s plantation. I wonder if the major was actually treed or just cornered at gunpoint. One would also wonder if he had retained any sidearms; sounds like he didn't. )

One of those lost men was Major William H. Fidler. Fidler was commanding the Sixth Kentucky Cavalry when it was attacked by Adams' brigade. It so happened that they wandered into the locality where lived John D. Horton, a well-to-do farmer. His sons were in the Confederate service, and he was an ardent Southern sympathizer. He had a fine pack of trained hounds and with these dogs he followed and captured Major Fidler and two privates. Mr. Horton carried the three prisoners to Eutaw and there placed them in jail. They remained in this jail until Eutaw was taken by the Federals, who liberated them on April 21st (on this same day Major Fidler was paroled at Vicksburg, so he must have taken the express train from Eutaw).

"Later, when Fidler was released he went to Vicksburg to get transportation back North. At Vicksburg he boarded the steamer Sultana. The Sultana was overloaded with men and the boiler exploded when steam pressure was increased past its limit. Miller, 1979

One of the men lost was Major W.H. Fielder (sic), an officer connected with the Kentucky troops, one of Croxton's principal officers. It so happened that they wandered into the locality where lived John D. Horton, a well-to-do farmer. His sons were in the Confederate service, and he was an ardent Southern sympathizer. He had a fine pack of trained hounds and with these dogs he followed and captured this Major Fielder (sic) and two privates. Mr. Horton carried the three prisoners to Eutaw and there placed them in jail. Clinton, 1904

Major Fidler and his men, meanwhile, were hiding in the woods trying to elude Confederate horsemen. They evidently took to the swamps around Shambley Creek. John D. Horton, William's brother, became aware of their presence and gathered up his "runaway dogs," trained to execute the provisions of the Fugitive Slave Act. He then returned to the skirmish site and the hounds found the trail. One source says that the three were literally treed by the hounds. At any rate John D. Horton apprehended one officer and two privates of the 6th Kentucky Cavalry, and, according to some sources, with the aid of the local home guard, delivered the three to the Sheriff to incarcerate them in the Greene County Jail. It is possible that these were the last Federal soldiers captured and confined as prisoners-of-war, at least east of the Mississippi. (There is more the rest of the story of Maj. Fidler, but he made it aboard the Sultana in Vicksburg, on which he was the ranking POW, and was lost with the boat north of Memphis)

Notes for MARY COLEMAN:

Mary Coleman Horton gave birth to an infant daughter which died or was still born. The date is unknown. Mary Coleman Horton died November 29, 1843, one month and one week after delivering Jesse Habbard Horton, son who died 10 months and 13 days later on August 4, 1844. It is reasonable to speculate that Mary's death was due to complications of the delivery, possibly a pelvic infection, a common sequelae postpartum in those days. Jesse Habbard was evidently a frail child to die at 10 months of age.

Children of JOHN HORTON and MARY COLEMAN are:

i. INFANT DAUGHTER6 HORTON.

ii. ALONZA HORTON, b. 1838, Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama; d. Abt. 1863, Unknown.

v. LEONIDAS A. HORTON, b. 1842, Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama; d. February 9, 1863, Shelbyville, Bedford County, Tennessee.

Notes for LEONIDAS A. HORTON:

Private L(eonidas) A. Horton enlisted in Company B, 4th Battalion Mississippi Cavalry, on November 14, 1861 in Columbus, Mississippi, by Captain Yancey, for the period of one year. That same day he was appointed Sergeant. He appears on a muster roll of Company D, 8th Reg't Confederate Cavalry on September 1, 1862. This roll covered the period from January 1 to September 1, 1862. He was last paid by Captain Hamilton on January 1, 1862. On August 8, 1862 he was reduced to the ranks, though there is no indication of the reason of this reduction in grade.

This company was formerly Company B, 4th Battalion Mississippi Cavalry, and Company B, 2nd (Brewer's) Battalion Mississippi and Alabama Cavalry.

The 8th (Wade's) Regiment Confederate Cavalry (also known as the 2nd Regiment Mississippi and Alabama Cavalry) was formed in May, 1862, by the addition of three companies, which had formerly served in the 1st (Beall's) Battalion Alabama Cavalry, to the 2nd (Brewer's) Battalion Mississippi and Alabama Cavalry.

According to his messmate, J.A.G., Leonidas A. Horton "died of typhoid pneumonia near Shelbyville, Tennessee, February 9, 1863, son of John D. Horton of Greene County, Alabama, in the 21st year of his age.

"He was suddenly and violently attacked (by the typhoid pneumonia) and survived but the short period of ten days (i.e., he contracted typhoid on January 31, 1863). The deceased was a member of the McCaa Rangers, Company D, 8th Confederate Regiment of Cavalry. He entered service on his country for the war in the fall of 1861, under the gallant Captain McCaa. He was a faithful slodier performing all the duties required of him with cheerfulness. He shirked no duty when able to perform it. He was in most of the skirmishes that his command was engaged in and acquitted himself with honor.( Wheeler's cavalry slept on the field of battle the night of the 31st. Next day it operated in the rear of the enemy, on the pikes leading toward Nashville, repeating the destruction of trains. These trains were loaded with officers and men wounded, and bound for the hospitals of

Nashville. Captain B. B. McCaa of Co. "D", 8th Confederate, was mortally

wounded Jany. 1st in one of these attacks on the trains. The officer was

lifted from his saddle by Sergeants Alfred Atwater and A. C. Oxford, and

taken to a farmhouse nearby where he died that night. The detail of four

men that had been sent to bear him to the house were employed the next

morning in making a box for the body and digging a grave. A company of

the enemy came up and arrested them. Sergeant Oxford gave the Royal Arch

Mason's society "obligation" to the Captain, whereupon the prisoners

were released. Pickens County, Ala. contributed no nobler man or more

gallant soldier to the Confederacy than Captain B. B. McCaa). He (L.A. Horton) was engaged in all the cavalry movements in the enemy's rear during the great fight at Murfreesboro and was near his beloved Captain when he fell, gallantly leading the charge against the Abolitionist legions near Levergne on the evening of January 1, 1863. In his company he was highly esteemed by his officers and fellow soldiers-- none knew him but respect him. As a soldier, he was gallant, patriotic, and generous; as a friend, he was true and obliging.

"Often has his sprightly wit caused the merry laugh to ring around the glowing camp-fire. Alas: we shall see his noble form and listen to his wit and merry laugh no more, for the brave soldier has left this land of war and trouble. Though far from parents and sisters yet he was affectionately cared for and I hope they will strive to meet their son and brother in the better world where war, death, and trouble will never enter."

Notes for AMOS HORTON VI:

From the Memorial Record of Alabama, 1893, Vol 1:

"Amos Horton, an extensive farmer and stock-breeder, living at Pleasant Ridge, was born in Greene County, Ala., September 16, 1847. He is the son of William and Marcia (Ford) Horton. The Horton family is a very ancient one, and its genealogy is as follows, with however, a missing link between the faimly of Amos Horton and the ancient family of Horton, which is is believed possible to supply. Robert De Horton manumitted a bondsman to his manor of Horton, long before the time of Henry Lacy, earl of Lincoln, wh died in 1310. It has also been ascertained that the Hortons had a manor house in Grant Horton, at a remote period. The word Horton, in Anglo-Saxon, means a vegetable garden. It is said to be derived from "ort" and "tan", "ort" meaning "plant" and "tun", "enclosed" or "an enclosure." It is known in England ever since the conquest by Julius Caesar. The Horton coat of arms in England is as follows: A stag's head, embossed in silver and gold. The motto, "Quod cult, caile cult" (What he wills, he wills cordially), expresses a sentiment which can be traced in the present generation of Hortons, as one of their chief characterists. William Horotn, of Frith House in Barksland, Halifax, sescended from the above-named Robert De Horton. Barnabus Horton, the ancestor of the Hortons in America, came to America, in the ship "Swallow," between the year 1633 and 1638, and landed at Hampton, Mass. William Horton, the father of Amos Horton, was born near Raleigh, Wake County, (NC) in 1812. He was a wealthy planter and large slave-holder owning 100 slaves. He emigrated to Alabama at an early age and settled in Blount County. Miss Marcia Ford, whom he married, was born in Alabama, and spent her life in Greene County. There maried about 1836,a nd became the parents of six children, three only of whom are ilving, viz: Henry A. Horton, a farmer in Greene County; Amos Horton, and Mattie Snedicor, widow of J. W. Snedicor, of Birmingham, Ala. His first wife having died, Mr. William Horton married Mrs. Mary Tillman, by whom he has had eight children--seven sons and one daughter--as follows: Rufus K. Horton, a wealthy and progressive planter, living near Pleasant Ridge; Robert L. Horton, a resident of Meridian, Miss.; Moses B. Horton, unmarried, and living near Pleasant Ridge, on a farm; William Manassas Horton, born on the day of the first battle of Manassas, hence his name; he is a dentist at Tuscaloosa, Ala.; John R. Horton, a farmer of Greene County; Clarence S. (?) Horton, physician in the hospital in New Orleans; Fred Horton, who died in 1878; and Mary E. Horton, unmarried, and living near Pleasant Ridge. with her mother. Amos Hroton is the grandson of Jesse Horton, a native of North Carolina(?), and a great-grandson of Amos Horton, a captain in the Revolutionary War, under Gen. Marion. Amos Horton was married to Miss Sallie Richardson, a native of Greene County, and a daughter of Grief Richardson and Drucilla (Taylor) Richardson; both were born in 1808, the former in Lunenberg, and the latter in Pendleton, S. C. She was a daughter of Samuel Taylor, who was among the first settlers of Greene County. He was a son of Samuel Taylor, who was a colonel in the Revolutionary army, and quite a distinguished soldier,having been the first to fight the British in South Carolina. He lost a leg during the war, and fought with a price offered for his head by the British governor,and consequently could not be properly considered a prisoner of war (assuming he was captured). He received a large Revolutionary bounty, which place his family in affluent circumstances. James Taylor, the father of Col. Samuel Taylor, came over from england as one of the king's officers, and settled upon a farm upon which the city of Philadelphia now stands. The place was known as the Stone House farm. Mrs Horton's parents were married in 1830, and to them were born seven children; four are living, as follows: John T. Richardson, a real estate dealer in Birmingham, Ala.; Leonnora Richardson, wife of C. McAdory, of Bessemer, Ala.; Ida Richardson, wife of J. R. Rockett, of Birmingham, Ala., Sallie Richardson, wife of Amos Horton, of Pleasant Ridge, Ala. Three are dead, as follows: Mary Virginia, wife of B.T. Higginbotham, died in 1853; Dr. William H. Richardson was killed at Spottsylvania Court House, Va., in 1864, while in command of a company on the Eleventh Alabama regiment Confederate States army; infant son, died at an early age. Mrs Horton's maternal great-grandfather was a well known and able minister of the Presbyterian church: Rev Dr. Thomas Reese, born in Pennsylvania in 1742, graduated from Princeton College with great honor, and the degree of D. D.; was licensed to preach in 1773, and was the first Carolinian to be so honored by Princeton. He was a thorough scholar, and was well versed in mental and moral philosophy as well as theology. He was the author of the work entitled "The Influence of Religion on Civil Society," which, if it had been written from the other side of the Atlantic, might have done credit to the pen of a Warburton or a Paley. He died near Pendleton, S.C., in 1799, and was buried near the old stone church. To Amos Horton and his wife have been born six children, of whom three sons are living, viz: William Taylor Horton, bonr December 12,1871, Hugh Clifford Horton, bonr NOvember 7, 1872, graduated from the University of Alabama, in June 1892, having taken a classical course; Charles Richardson Horton, born January 5, 1875. Amos Horton was a cadet furing the late War, subject to state orders,and served a short time in Mobile, Ala. He owns 1,800 acres of land in Greene County, which is in a high state of cultivation, and lies on the Sipsey River. He makes a speciality of raising Jersey cattle. Mrs. Horton is a member of the Presbyterian church, and both Mr. and Mrs. Horton are highly respected citizens."

Notes for SARA LEE HORTON:

The following tribute to Sara Lee Horton was written by her neice, Marian Burke Treakle in August 1995:

Sara Lee Horton was born on January 19, 1901 at Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama. She was the fourth daughter born to Civille and Moses Horton. The birth of a son was to follow in a couple of years. Sara's father owned and operated a large cotton plantation, and until the boll weevil invaded and began to destroy the crops they must have enjoyed a comfortable and contented lifestyle. At that time and during the early years of the 20th Century, I have heard that Pleasant Ridge was quite a bustling community, with much of the life of the community centering around the activities of this historic Presbyterian Church where we now gather to celebrate the life of Sara Horton. Following the devastation of the cotton industry, Moses Horton decided to move his family to Tuscaloosa. Sara and her siblings attended school there where she later earned a Bachelor of ARts degree from the University of Alabama. In later years she also was granted a Master's Degree in Education from the University of Maryland.

For a number of years, Sara lived in Miami, Florida where she was a teacher of Home Economics at Miami Beach High School.

World War II was approaching and she decided to join a branch of the service, choosing to become a WAVE in the United States Navy. Sara served stateside at several Naval Air Stations and eventually attained the rank of Lieutenant.

Following her discharge from the Navy, Sara again returned to teaching for a brief period, deciding later to become a Home Demonstration Agent living in various places and traveling throughout the State of Florida before settling in West Palm Beach as her last post. There she built a home for herself where she enjoyed a full life with many friends for about twenty years. Active in church work, she remained a devout Presbyterian throughout her lifetime. She chose as her final home Westminster Towers Retirement community in Orlando, where she spent the final 18 years of her life.

Sara was a happy person and she did much to bring warmth and sheer to her side circle of friends and her family to whom she was extremely devoted. She was always there for all of us and she will be sorely missed, but we will hold fast to the memory of Sara and what she meant to each of us in our lives.

The following was written by Sara Lee Horton in October 1978:

"Most of the material related here was given me by Aunt Mary, my father's only sister; some was gleaned from conversations of my father. Most of the dates were copied by me from tombs in the Horton family cemetary and Pleasant Ridge cemetary, both in Greene County, Alabama.

"Amos Horton, our great, great grandfather was a captain in the Revolutionary War under General Marion. However, some family tradition said he had charge of the First Militia of South Carolina during the war. One note I have said his name have been Jesse or William. The Hortons are supposed to have settled in Virginia prior to residence in South Carolina. I have a number of references, documented by courthouse and parish records of Hortons in Virginia prior to South Carolina dates. It is interesting that the names William, Jesse, and Amos, frequently used in our family, occur in them.

Jesse Horton, our great grandfather was born in Hanging Rock, South Carolina. He moved to North Carolina where he married Sarah ("Sallie") Chamblee. They had three sons and nine daughters. Aunt Mary could recall only eight of their names. Two of them were married to Berry King (?), and after one of the weddings, he took his bride home on horseback in front of him! (?) Jesse moved to Alabama about 1820 or 1822, perhaps as early as 1816 or 1818, and settled near Blount Springs, Blount County, Alabama. Two of the sons, William (my grandfather) and "Jack" moved to Greene County, Alabama, when quite young. They were the first white settlers of the county and entered a section of land from the Government. At the time, there were many Indians in the County, William became a very wealthy planter, owning 100 slaves. During our childhood there were still a number of negroes named Horton living aound Pleasant Ridge.

William Horton, our grandfather, was born near Raleigh, Wake County, North Carolina. He was married twice-first to Marcia Ford, then to Mary Emily Kirkland Tillman (our grandmother) who was a widow with one daughter, Ophelia. From his first marriage, there were six children and seven from the second. All the children received a good education at the Archibald Academy (Union Academy) at Pleasant Ridge, a well-known institution in that region with many boarding students coming from the surrounding country. Three pursued further study. William became a dentist, Mary graduated from the Tuscaloosa Female College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Clarence, after attending the University of Alabama, completed his study of medicine at Heidelberg University in Heidelberg, Germany. Our father, Moses, "read law" (the procedure for studying law then) in a judge's office in Eutaw, but never took the state bar to become a licensed practicing attourney.

Since many years have elapsed, perhaps I can relate with impunity a couple of "family skeletons" which I've heard from Papa and Aunt Mary. Their half-sister, Martha Jane, affectionately called "Sis Matt," was married to Dr. (Isaac Newton) Snedicor. When her father died, she inherited quite a bit of money, but as women in that day were not allowed to own anything in their own names, it was all in Dr. Snedicor's name. One day she asked him for a check for $50, as I recall the amount, which she proceeded to raise to $500 or $5000, thus retrieving some of her own money back. With this, she bought a dilapidated piece of property in Birmingham, improved and sold it for a profit. Repeating this idea several times made her a very wealthy woman. Somewhere along the line, she divorced Dr. Snedicor-an unheard-of act in those days! Aunt Mary and my father spoke with great admiration of "Sis Matt's" astuteness, but on other occasions Papa would say "Sis Matt is the devil." When I was a teenager, he remarked sometimes that I was like "Sis Matt" then to tease him I'd ask, "Smart or the devil?" I have a small daquerreotype of her given me by Aunt Mary because of my resemblance to her.

Money often creates controversy in families-ours is no exception. At the time of my grandfather's death, there being no banks then, money was kept on a big iron safe at home. Uncle Amos was executor of the estate ot which, at the time, he was heavily indebted. Finally, our grandmother (Amos' stepmother) had him hlegally removed as executor, but he meerged owing the estate nothing and a very wealthy man! He was a pompous individual, living the life of a Southern gentleman with fine saddle horses and a large pack of blooded fox hounds. Aunt Carrie (Amos' second wife) resented the money he paid for them. Once when he paid $75 for one, she was so angry she went out and paid $40 for a hat! When I was 8 or 9, he gave me my very first ready-made dress- a white organdie with tiny tucks, lace and a bertha. I must have been very proud of my "store-bought" dress for a group photograph of us cousins at this time shows me on the first row decked in the white organdie in the dead of winter.

In 1939, Aunt Mary and I visited Pleasant Ridge together. She took me to the old Horton family cemetary I'd never known existed before. Here in the middle of a cotton field, across the highway from where Grandpapa's home once stood (it was burned in 1938 by arson), was an oasis of trees. As we drew near, among the brambles and briars, could be seen many old tombs- some still standing, many tumbled and the inscriptions illegible. Hortons of several generations rest there including our great grandfather Jesse, and his wife, Sarah."

She married WILLIAM HENDERSON EATMAN February 23, 1870 in Greene County, Alabama, son of THOMAS EATMAN and MARY HARRISON. He was born January 29, 1846 in Greene County, Alabama, and died January 3, 1887 in Clinton, Greene County, Alabama.

Notes for WILLIAM HENDERSON EATMAN:

From " A University of Alabama Cadet" by Unknown

IN the spring of 1865, General James H. Wilson gave orders to General John Croxton to go to Tuscaloosa and tear down all the factories and iron works. He also told Croxton to burn the University of Alabama. The University had been giving military training to the students. This is why Northern soldiers felt they should burn the school. When the news came to Tuscaloosa that the Northern soldiers were coming, many of the cadets in training at the University joined the Tuscaloosa Home Guard. Two of these students were William Henderson Eatman and Baxter Bragg Comer (Comer later became Governor of Alabama). Most of the boys were in their teens. As william Eatman was born May 16, 1846, this would have made him about 19- just about the age one would inagine Henry to have been (?).

Croxton's brigade numbered 1,500 men. They moved on Tuscaloosa from the north, crossing the Warrior River over the Northport Bridge, and captured the town on April 2, 1865 and burning the University on April 3, 1865. The Home Guard and Cadets resistance was short-lived as they were soon ordered to retreat when their officers saw the battle was lost.

Croxton's men burned a hat factory, destroyed the public stairs (?), etc. They interrupted a wedding and arrested the male guests, and siexed the artillery of the University of Alabama Cadets. Croxton Burned all the University of Alabama buildings except three. Ironically, one of the buildings not burned was the Roundhouse. This building was built to store ammunition for the military training during the war. After Croxton burned the University, Dr. L. C. Garland, president of the University, which had continued the training of the cadets during the war, then let them out of town. One source says they marched to Marion, Perry County. Can you imagine what took place during this march. I'm sure these young men had not prepared for the 60-odd miles they had to go. They probably had to sleep out in the open without tents. I'm sure when they got to Marion, they were hot, thirsty, dirty, and all 3-400 cadets had sore feet. (Moore's History of Alabama tells us that there were between 300 and 400 enrolled at the time)

Since the University was burned and the students could not return to school and earn their diplomas, in 1914 the University confered honorary diplomas to the students that applied for them. Years later the sons of William H. Eatman and Baxter Bragg Comer, Thomas N. Eatman and Donald Comer would get together and swap stories about what their fathers told them about the burning of the University of Alabama and the part they played during the ordeal.

In 1983, when she was attending the University, Lynn Allison Gray was officially presented the diploma of her great-great-grandfather William Henderson Eatman on the front lawn of the President's Mansion by Dr. Joab Thomas president of the University.

The following article appeared in the Tuscaloosa News:

UA students gets diploma 116 years late.

William Henderson Eatman left the University of Alabama in 1865 to join the Confederat Army- and he never received a diploma. But some 116 years later, his great-great-granddaughter has accepted the diploma for him.

The oversight was discovered when Eatman's granddaugher, Lara Kate Gray of Pell City, was gathering up some of Eatman's photographs of pre-Civil War University days to donate to the school.

Among the photographs was an envelope, postmarked April 1914, which contained a letter awarding William Henderson Eatman an honorary degree where the University held special ceremonies to recognize students who served in the Confederat Army.

Laura Kate Gray sent a copy of the letter to the University along with the photographs. The letter found its was to Joyce Lamont, curator of the library's special collections, who recognized the letter's significance.

School officials took a blank diploma from the school's vault on which was pre-printed the signature of George Denny, then-president, and Emmet O'Neal, then Govornor of Alabama. After lettering in Eatman's name, the diploma was presented to Lynne Allison Gray, Eatman's great-great-granddaughter, who currently is majoring in business at the University.

Notes for JOHN A. HORTON:

From the Memorial Record of Alabama, 1893

John A. Horton, a planter residing near Carrollton, Pickens County, Ala., was bron February 22, 1852. He is a son of John D. and Julia (Holly) Horton,a nd a grandson of Jesse Horton, a native of North Carolina, who was a planter. John D. Horton was a native of North Carolina, born in Wake County, in 1814, and when he was five years old his parents brought him to Alabama and settled in Blount County. This was in 1819. In 1822 they removed to Greene County and settled near Pleasant Ridge, where they both died. John D. Horton was reared on a farm and educated at the common schools of the day. He was twice married, John A. Horton being the son of the second wife. By his first wife he had five children, viz: Hollis , a farmer residing near Pickensville, Pickens County, Ala.; Alonzo, Coleman, and Leonard, deceased; Eliza, widow of W. R. Bunting, who died May, 1892, and resided near Pickensville. By his second wife Mr. Horton had eight Children, six of whom are living, viz: Laura, widow of W. H. Eatman, residing at Clinton, Ala.; Ophelia, wife of T. C. Bunting, a farmer of Pickens County; Anna, wife of W. F. Eatman, farmer of Pickens County; George, a farmer residing near Clinton; Robert L., a resident of Mississippi, and John A. Those deceased were named Mary and Lillie. The father of this family died near Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Ala., October 8, 1882, the mother having died in June, 1857. He was a practical and prominent farmer, never aspiring to political honors, retiring in his dispositions. and, like all the Horton, principally devoted to and largely engaged in agriculture. John A. Horton was reared on a farm and received his education at the academy at Pleasant Ridge. He was married to Miss Minnie M. Puckett, a native of Pickens County, Ala., who was born November 18, 1855. She is the daughter of William W. and Frances (McCafferty) Puckett, the former of whom was a native of Alabama, born in Greene County, October 20, 1827, and the latter a native of South Carolina, born in Union District, November 17, 1833. They came with their parents to Pickens County in 1834. Mr. and Mrs. Puckett have had born to them six children, three of whom are living, viz: Minnie M., wife of J. A. Horton; ellen, wife of William Kilpatrick, resident of Columbus, Miss.; and Joel, single and living at home; those deceased were William D., Donna, wife of William Dunlap, and Mattie. Mr. and Mrs Puckett were married in 1852, and they now live on the farm settled upon by Mr. Puckett's father in 1836, the house then erected by him being one of the first frame houses built in Pickens County. The timbers of this house were cut by hand, and the lumber sawed by a sawmill water-powered mill, some five miles from Carrollton, the only mill then in Pickens county. THe house is still in a good stage of preservation. Mr. Puckett's father was a native of Pennsylvania, but removed to Virginia, remaining there a short time and then going on to South Carolina, and located at Abbeville District, whence he removed, in 1812, to Greene County, Ala. He was one of the first settlers in that County. Here he remained until 1836. He then moved to Pickens county, where died in 1845. his widow surviving him until 1864. Mrs. Horton's maternal grandfather was William McCafferty, and his wife was Ann Gregory. They were both natives of South Carolina, and came to PIckens County, Ala., in 1834. He died in 1867, and she in 1879. John A. Horton and wife are the parents of two children, one of whom is living, Mattie O., born November 4, 1882. THe other chld died in infancy.

Notes for OLA DAYTON SNEDECOR:

To: Anrkee

Dear Mr. Owens,

Thank you for posting the wonderfully complete Horton Family History online! I am working with a descedent of Martha Jane "Sis Mattie" Horton Snedecor (dau of William H. Horton and Marcia L. Ford of Greene Co. AL) and was thrilled to find so much information about her family.

You have already noted that Martha "Mattie" Horton married Isaac Newton Snedecor. This is correct; the marriage date I have is 1870, Greene Co. AL. Isaac Newton Snedecor was son of Col. James Snedecor and his wife Sarah "Sallie" O'Rear. The Snedecors arrived in Greene Co. AL c1820-1830 and also owned many acres of land in Pleasant Ridge.

Their daughter Ola "Ophelia" Dayton Snedecor married Percy Bradford Merry of Augusta GA c1899-1900. She died, age 36, in December 1915 and is buried in a Snedecor family plot at Oak Hill Cemetery in Birmingham. Ola and Percy B. Merry had two sons: Bradford Percy (b 1906) and Horace (1908). I am working with the granddaughter of Bradford P. Merry, Augusta GA.--they possess a set of monogrammed (MHS) sterling flatware, tradition says was owned by Mattie Snedecor Merry.

I noted (somewhere? I think in your notes) that Mattie Horton and Isaac N. Snedecor were divorced. Where can I find this information? It is a very interesting fact, especially in light of Mr. Snedecor's active participation of the founding of Stillman Institute in Tuscaloosa, apparently a Presbyterian-funded school to educate young black men to go into the Presbyterian ministry.

Thank you again for this goldmine of Horton family information. I will be happy to share whatever information I have and would love to know details of the Mattie Horton-Isaac Snedecor marriage.

Hope to hear from you,

Nancy B. Bowen and Rachel P. Merry

Notes for EVERETT CLARENCE OWENS II:

Everett C. Owens, Jr. was born in 1914 just one year before his grandfather Hugh Lafayette Owens died. "Fate" likely just bearly had opportunity to enjoy his first grandson. Everett's younger brother Robert or "Bob" was his constant companion, sharing chores, milking cows, hauling cotton, scaling logs in their father and uncles' saw mill, and fighting each other. Not infrequently did the elder Everett have to take the switch to the boys. He with the rest of his siblings rode a school bus to Eutaw High School after the grammer school in Pleasant Ridge was completed. A favorite of Everett's in school was literature, particularly Shakespear and Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner." While he wanted and knew all the lines of Mark Anthony in "Julius Cesar" he only got parts such as Second Citizen, with lines such as "Hail Cesar!"

Everett graduated from Eutaw High School in 1932, and joined the Civilian Conservation Corps in July 1933, the year of its inception by FDR, when it was administered by the U.S. Army. He was in a CCC camp in Bay Minnette until December 1933 and worked on what is now Claude Kelly State Park. The activities of the camp included clearing trees and building roads in the woods. During this time he participated in the boxing matches held in the camp. In 1934 he enrolled at Alabama Polytechnic Institute at Auburn.

After graduation in May 1938, Everett was employed by the Soil Conservation Service, Montgomery, Alabama, as a Soil Conservation Field Service Technician for one year, September 1938 to September 1939. In this capacity he planned cropping systems and supervised work in Butler County, Alabama. Also he farmed on a beef cattle, corn, and cotton farm.

In September 1939 Everett took a position with Farm Security Administration as a County Agricultural Agent, at Troy, Alabama. He worked in this position until March 1942, when he entered active service with the United States Army. In this position with Farm Security, Everett supervised the making of farm loans, use of loans, and farm work. He checked on crop and chattel security of loans, also collecting and making payments of loans when due.
