  • Sheri Horton, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 19 October 2010,"Daughter Nancy Anne Greene married Jonathan Horton son of Abraham andMartha Brissell Horton. ... Jonathan and Nancy's son John marriedSusan Grider and the family moved to Washington Co Mo."

    Sheri also stated that Isaac, who married Nancy Ann's suster Mary, wasJonathan's brother and then lists all the other brothers of JohnBrissell Horton.  So the naming of John Brissell Horton as Jonathanwas intentional in this information.  It has been cnfirmed that Johnand Nancy's son was John Brissell Horton Jr.

    But the marriage to Susan Grider matches the son of John Brissell andNancy Ann Horton.  Sheri has done extensive research trying to puttogether the Horton line.

    John's birth year on his grave is reported as as 1789.  His name thereis John Brissell Horton Jr.  A memorial exists on Find a Grave (seebelow).  Sheri Horton now lists him simply as John Horton.

    You will note on the will I made a reference to ChristopherGirder/Crider.  He was married to Elizabeth Corbin, d/o Peter Corbin,Christopher and Elizabeth's daughter Susan Grider, married JohnHorton, son of John Brissel Horton and Nancy Ann Green.

    John Horton married to Susan is the John who fought in war of 1812 andreceived the land grant for Missouri. John and Sue had son ChristopherColumbus Horton, he married Achsah Montgomery in Washington Co Mo.They had son Isaac Horton who married Rachel Minnie Montgomery.Achsah's niece.  Isaac and Minnie had Bert Horton who married EssieMae Byington, They had Eugene B Horton who was my Dad.
