Horton Family in Pawtucket, Rhode Island circa 1913
I am trying to find my connection to a Horton family who may have lived near Pawtucket, Rhode Island about 1913. I do notknow the name of my paternal great-grandfather; my great grandmother, Elsie Gartside, got pregnant when she was 16 and raised my grandfather as her brother, hence my last name of Gartside. Through the wonders of FamilyTreeDNA I have been able to discover a connection to Thomas Horton (ABT 1640) of Rehoboth, Mass. I’ve had a couple matches via the site and have strong suspicions that I am descended from Hezekiah Horton (1714).
I am looking for any living descendants of Hezekiah Horton who may have information on family that lived in Rhode Island around 1913. I’d also like to find any male Horton related to Hezekiah that has taken or is willing to take a Y-DNA test.
Thanks for any help!
