  • Name  William H. Horton 
    Born  1857  Putnam Co, VA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Documentation on 1866 birth year not given, from a OneWorldTree family tree record.

      Same for IGI record showing birth as 1857, Kanawha, VA and married to Octaby Smith. HOWEVER, the official record of his marriage to Octavia (as Octaby), gives him as 24 years old in October 1882. This would mean he was born most likely in 1858...or possibly in 1857. It gives him as married in Putnam County, VA and then living in Kanawha County, WV.

      =====
      November 3, 2008, received email re 1910 census data, ancestry.com and One World Tree data as follows:

      1910 census from Curry, Putnam, West Virginia showing Mary and Andrew Jackson Atkins (both age 27) married with children of Nada age 2 and Lilly age 1 month. [note: This "Lilly" has to be Sally, born 1910]

      ancestry.com for Mary Frances Horton with a date of death of 1928. The census
      record was located in Mullins family tree.

      One World Tree shows a Mary Horton (b 1900 d 1928) married to Andrew Adkins. Her father is shown as William Horton and mother as Octavia Egnor b abt 1866, d 1888.
      =====
      One LDS record shows a specific marriage date of October 12, 1882, Kanawha Co, WV, and shows William's middle initial as H. It also shows Octavia as Octaby.
      ====================

      One record shows Lydia Woodrum as another wife of John Washington Egnor. Also she is shown as another wife of William Horton, husband of John Washington Egnor's daughter, Octavia Egnor; however, another John Washington Egnor is his son, Octavia's brother...a more probably match.

      Carol Setliff's records show a Benjamin H. Plumley as born to Octavia and Plumley, but the H. seems to indicate he was son of Octavia and Horton, as there are three children listed with H. as middle name. Benjamin was listed as born May 1889; which conflicts with Willey H.'s birth year; however, Willey is also listed as born 1888. My personal records show a Balam Horton, which may be inaccurate or may be a nickname for Benjamin.
