Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
The Horton family migrated through Virginia to Kentucky, and parts farther west. Elliot County, Ky. is the location of the original Horton family residence. The original cabin is still standing as part of a larger house. All the 'old timers' have passed on now, but the annual reunion is still observed at Sandy Hook, Ky., Elliot County. Another Horton reunion, the descendents of Henry Horton, have their annual reunion at Oldtown, Ky, at the residence of Roy K. Horton. This reunion is on labor day of each year. The Horton name is well documented and recorded in the eastern Kentucky region. A lot of research has been accomplished that I hope to use in this genealogy research.
