Other facts


Married Mary EAST


  • Daniel was the first child of Isaac and Horton and Mary Ann Green,daughter of Meshack Green and Lucretia Franklin.

    Children of Isaac Horton and Mary Green are:
    i.   Daniel Horton, born 1796 in Pendleton, South Carolina; died 1860in Marshall, Alabama; married (1) Mary "Polly" East; married (2)Malinda Aft. 1854.
    --  Ancestors of Janet Lee Jinkins,

    Daniel and his wife Mary East are enumerated in the 1850 census inGwinnett County, Georgia, not far from both their parents.

    1850 Federal Census, Gwinnett County, Georgia, 25 September, page 389,Hse/Fam #939

    F Marion Horton 18 M  Farmer b GA [b abt 1832]
    Elizabeth Horton 20 F  b GA [b abt 1830]

    Mary's parents are enumerated on the same page with them.  This isactually her step-mother, since in fact her birth year based on herage her is after Mary's birth date!  Patience is 38 years younger thanBenjamin, according to this census.

    A genealogy provides the names of Daniel and Mary's children:

    Daniel Horton, born 1796 in Pendleton, South Carolina; died 1860 inMarshall, Alabama. He was the son of 240. Isaac Horton and 241. MaryAnn Green. He married 121. Mary "Polly" East.
    Spouse:  Mary "Polly" East, born 1790 in South Carolina; died 1854 inGwinnett Co., GA.

    Children of Daniel Horton and Mary East are:
    i.   Thomas Horton, born 1815; died Bef. 1860.
    ii.   William Horton, born 1819; died Bef. 1850.
    iii.   James Horton, born 1820; died Unknown.
    iv.   Eliza Ann Horton, born 1821; died Unknown.
    v.   Jeffrey Horton, born 1822 in Georgia; died 1888 in Blount,Alabama; married (1) Mary White; married (2) Elizabeth White Aft.1849; married (3) Josephine Bullard December 27, 1887 in Nectar,Alabama.
    vi.   Abraham Horton, born 1823; died Unknown.
    vii.   George Washington Horton, born 1825; died Unknown.
    viii.   Augustine Horton, born 1827; died Unknown.
    ix.   John Horton, born 1829; died Unknown.
    x.   Elizabeth Horton, born 1830; died Unknown.
    xi.   F. Marion Horton, born 1832; died Unknown.
    xii.   Isaac N. Horton, born 1832; died 1927
    --  Ancestors of Janet Lee Jinkins,

    I wonder why this last child here, Isaac N Horton, does not show up onthe 1850 census, if he was a twin to F Marion, who is reported in thatcensus.  This genealogy says he lived until 1927, so if he was born in1832, why was he not listed in the 1850 census?

    The 1860 census reports three other children not showing up on thislist.  Sarah A was born about 1846, David S about 1847 and Jessee Labout 1855.  The genealogy cited just above says Mary died in 1854,and other genealogies report that Daniel married his second wifeMalinda "after 1854."  This should mean that any children born before1854 were Mary's children, or were Malinda's children whom Danieladopted.

    But Mary was born in 1790.  When Jesse was born in 1855 or so, Marywould  have been 65 years old!  She was not Jesse's mother!  WhenSarah was born in about 1846, she would have been 56, making it veryunlikely that she is the mother of any of these three youngerchildren.  Mary was in the 1850 census, and her last child reportedthere was born in 1832.  So Mary was still living and married toDaniel when the oldest children in the 1860 census were born.

    All these three children in the 1860 census are the children ofMalinda.  Perhaps when Daniel married Malinda, he adopted her threechildren, or perhaps she was already married to a Horton and thechildren already had that last name.  Finally, it is possible thatJessee is the child of both Daniel and Malinda, if they married about1854.  I do not have an exact birth date for Jesse.

    1860 Federal Census, Marshall County, Alabama, 14 July, EasternDivision, PO Big Spring, page 30, Hse/Fam #199
    Daniel Horton 64 M Farmer $0 Real Estate $335 Personal  born SouthCarolina [b abt 1796]
    Malinda Horton 45 F born South Carolina Cannot read or write [b abt1815]
    Sarah A Horton 14 M born Georgia [b abt 1846]
    David S Horton 13 M born Georgia [b abt 1847]
    Jessee L Horton 5 M born Georgia [b abt 1855]

    This census tells us that Daniel and Malinda did not move to Alabamauntil after Jesse's birth in about 1855.  All these children were bornin Georgia.
