    (Thus death occurred between Sept 1854 and Mar 1855)

    Age variations are to be expected in sources of this era, and we finda variation of age in the 1850 census for what seems to be this IsaacHorton.  We know from family sources that Isaac and Mary Ann moved toGwinnett County, Georgia, and we find an entry in the 1850 census forthem, strongly supported by the report of birth in Pennsylvania forIsaac.  His age here is 96, which would be birth in the year 1854,earlier than the age reported in the pension chart, and much earlierthan the birth year of 1763 commonly reported, as in the Family DataCollection record above.

    On one side of them in House # 936 is an Abram Horton, only 26 yearsold, married also to a Mary An.

    Nancy L Horton 1 F  b NC [b abt 1849]

    This Abram (Abraham) is probably old Isaac's grandson, who moved laterwith his brother Isaac to Blount County, Alabama.

    "Abraham Horton, Sr. moved his family from Bucks County, Pennsylvaniato Surry County, North Carolina in 1767 where he died on 16 January1816. Some branches of the family moved to South Carolina about 1800.From South Carolina, Isaac moved to Hall County, Georgia where hedied. Two of Isaac's grandsons, Abraham and Isaac migrated to BlountCounty, Alabama and established the town of Horton which is now inMarshall County. They built a mill complex on the Little WarriorRiver."

    On the other side of old Isaac is a Thomas Horton, age 51, and hiswife Nicy (probably Eunice).

    Family sources confirm that this Thomas is Isaac and Nancy's son.  Hisage in the census entry above matches that in the genealogy reportbelow.  The young Abram above would be Thomas' son.

    Children of Isaac Horton and Mary Green are:
    120 i.   Daniel Horton, born 1796 in Pendleton, South Carolina; died1860 in Marshall, Alabama; married (1) Mary "Polly" East; married (2)Malinda Aft. 1854.

    Another of Thomas' sons lives a little farther down the road and isenumerated a couple of pages later.  This is Daniel, married to Mary(Polly) East, whose parents are living a few doors down from them.There is also on the same page a 28-year-old Jeffrey Horton, whom Ihave not identified, but suspect is another grandson of old Isaac, andprobably a son of Daniel and Mary.  He is born in South Carolina, asare both Daniel and Mary.

    His military grave marker reads as follows:
    Isaac Horton  Continental Line  Revolutionary War  1763 (correctedfrom other sources to 1754)  1854
    --  Gravestone of Isaac Horton, Sugar Hill Baptist Church CemeteryRegister,http://www.oldplaces.org/gwinnettga/cemeteries/sugar_hill_3.html

    The date of birth is 1754, going by his reported age of 96 in the 1850census.  A family source has also annotated the photo of his gravemarker with a corrected date of birth of 1754.  Note also that theregister of the cemetery has recorded his date of death as 1853, eventhough the marker says 1854.  The latter is the correct year, asreported by his Military pension records, which stopped afterSeptember 1854.

    "A Gwinnett County delegation Friday held a memorial service forRevolutionary War veteran Isaac Horton, who died in the Sugar Hillarea of Gwinnett County in 1854.  The ceremony took place at the SugarHill Baptist Church where a government marker was placed to honorHorton, whose real burial site is unknown."
