On the Ancestry forum I was chastised for continually providing family history without adequate documentation to support my 'conclusions.' My conclusions are based on info I have collected over 45 years. The conclusions are in the computer in summary form. The data is in 9 boxes in the garage. Here is all my data for the individual in question, 'British' Isaac Horton. This took two weeks to pull together, no one else's questions answered. Some of these references might be for Isaac Jr. Separating entirely would be another 2 weeks.
