Ripley Co MO

Submitted by Lou Nell Bath

1783:  Born in PA



1810:  N.C., Orange County census - Jesse, 1 M (16-26), 1 F (under 10), 1 F (16-26).  Listed on the same page are James Horn Sr. (45+), whom I believe is Jesse's father; Joshua Horn (over 45), Joseph Sr. Horn (26-45), William (26-45).  I believe that Joshua, Joseph and William are brothers of Jesse.  On this same census are Gilliam, Glenn, Jamison and Love, all families that later married into the Horn family.

The William Horn (26-45) could be the William Horn, b 1768 in NC that was the father of Harmon, then Howell, Christopher Columbus (who is buried in Yellville, AR), then Andrew Johnson.  That would explain the parallel travels of Harmon and Jesse through AL, TN, IL, MO and AR.

1815:  son John was born in Tennessee

1817: son Frederick, b Tennessee

1819/1820: son Jacob b Alabama

1820:  Where is Jesse this year?  Alabama, I think, but only a portion of that census is available.  Could be Tennessee.

1825: daughter Catherine b. Tennessee

1829: son Jesse b Tennessee

1830:  IL, Montgomery Co., Westfork Twn., Jesse Horn, 2 M (under 5), 2 M (5-10), 1M (30-40); 1 F (under 5)1 F (under 10), 1 F (30-40).  (The female listed as under 10 in the 1810 Census does not show up on this census, so assume she is dead.)

1831: daughter Charity b Illinois

1834: son Joseph b Missouri

1836: daughter Charlotte b Missouri

1837: son David b Missouri

1840 AR, Izzard Co., White River Twp:  Males - (under 5), one; 1-5, one; 5-10, one; 10-15, one (Joseph); 15-20, two; 50-60, one.  Females - under 5, one; 10-15, one; 15-20, one; 40-50, one.

1850 MO., Ripley Co., Dist 55:  Jesse, 67, b. PA., farming; Jesse, 21, b. MO., farming; Crey J (I believe this should have been "Charity", 18, b. Illinois; Joseph, 16, b. MO, farming; Charlotte, 14, b. MO.; David, 13, b. MO., Wm., 10, b. AR.  (James, born in Alabama, and John Horn also were listed as heads of house on this same Census.  They could have been the two males between 15 and 20 listed on the 1840 Census.  Jacob Horn, born in Alabama, could have been an older son who was already gone by the time the 1840 Census was taken.  Jacob had a son in 1843 in Missouri.)

February, 1859:  Two sons, Joseph and Jesse, bought and sold land in Ripley Co., MO.  Believed to be land inherited at their father's death.  (The probate court clerk for Ripley County wrote that she did not find a will for him.)

The land that went to Jesse and Joseph Horn is documented below.
