About Our Family Research
I'm just starting to investigate. My name is Jerry Lon Germany Freeman Horn (I changed my name to Horn in 1963 in NYC while in the Navy. My Father was Walker W. Germany (Buck) of Eastland TX. I was born on 9/27/42 in Gorman, Texas What I know is Lon Anthony Horn (my grandfather) was born in 1904 in Eastland, Texas. He had 4 living brothers (one died very young and is buried in West Texas. His name was Carmen Horn) and 2 sisters. Eldest brother was John, next was Lou (LB), then Lee Horn. Sisters were Mable (Jackie) Horn who married Homer Williams. Youngest sister and sibling was Peggy Horn Lee.
Lon married Ellen Rose Webb of Dallas, TX in 1920 and had 4 daughters: Edith Lorraine (my mother) 1922-1994, Margie Lou 1924-present, Bettie Jo 1929 - present, and Billie Ann (youngest twin to Bettie) 1929 - 1994. I understand that the Horns were out of TN.
