FTW/Docs/jos2josdeed.rtf Note the witnesses oath is taken and presented to the court two to three years after the date signed in Josiah statement.Identical entries mark the transfer of adjacent property to CH Horn. The Family of Josiah (jr) is listed in the 1850 Montgomery Co census, but this family is not listed in the Montgomery couty censuses of 1860 and 1870, and I have found no other records of Josiah Jr, his wife, children, nor their descendants after the 1850 census.Where did they go and what happened? Earlier I thought I recalled seeing a gravestone at the Blooming Grove cemetary engraved" Josiah Horn, born 1806" , but no death date engraved.This recollectionn was an error.I returned to the cemetary in July 2001 and found no such marker.Furthermore this Josiah Horn is not listed in an apparently accurate printed roster of grave markers that I have seen in multiple sites. (Cemetary Records of Montgomery County, F443, .M8D3, v 1). 8 August, 1999:Frances Osburn ([email protected]) reports to me the following: "My husband's people are from Montgomery County.Hisgreat great grandmother was Mary Eliza Horn who married Jeremiah Bull.We have not been able to prove her parents so don't know if Josiah is her father or not.Jeremiah and Molly are buried in the Bulle Wall Cemetery there in Cunningham TN. "Cunningham TN is about 6 miles southeast of Palmyra and justacross the river from Blooming Grove Creek. **************** In April, 2002, the following Query from "[email protected]" was posted: http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/msg/an/Scj.2ACEB/1456Message Board Post: 1870 Dunklin Co. MO census. Josiah 50 Elisabeth 4? John 21 Martha 17 Elisha 15 ????? 13 Francis 10 Ann 6 Robert and Thomas 10/12 They went to Mo from TN before 1869. Can anyone tell me where in TN or where they went to from Dunklin Co.? "[email protected]" responded: This could be Josiah Horn and Elizabeth Margaret Allen of Montgomery Co., TN, but their ages are off somewhat. They had a son Cave J. on the 1850 Montgomery Census that could be the John age 21 in 1870. Have not found this family in 1860 but haven't looked very hard, so they were prpbably still in Montgomery Co., TN. Hope this helps. The questioner replied: Thank you! It could very well be them. Allen is a middle name that has been in the family for 3 generations that I know of. I kind of wondered if maybe it was a middle name from somewhere along the line. It gives me a direction to look at least. Thanks again. **************** The above and the additional comments below sent to the questioner, April, 2002. It is certainly possible that Josiah Horn (b 1806) and his family moved to Missouri before the Civil War. An alternate hypothesis is that the man named in this query is Josiah Horn, b 1821, son of Thomas Horn, 1788-1867, the possible son of Josiah of Blooming Grove called to my attention by Barry Ousley. Regarding hypothesis #1, the date of birth of Josiah Horn "Jr" in 1806 (the last child of old Josiah of Blooming Grove, TN) is quite well established.It is also clear from the Montgomery County, TN census data of 1850 that the family of Josiah Jr. at that time included : Josiah 44,wife Elizabeth 33 Richard D. 9 Dawson 7 Allen 4 Cave J. 3 Mary E. 1/12 I have been unable to locate what happened to this family.I have no indication that they were in Tennessee after 1850. Since Josiah Sr's grandson's, (sons of Henry Horn) moved to northern Arkansas (Counties of Independence, Baxter, Sharpe) in about 1850, I think it is entirely credible to believe that their young uncle might have relocated to the same general area. If the 1870 Dunklin County census records the same family, Josiah Horn "Jr" would be 64 in 1870, but you can always assume that his agemight have been recorded incorrectly.If all the children alive in 1850 had left home except Cave J., and if Cave J. of 1850 was John of 1870, it could be the same family.Certainly not impossible. I think you should also consider the second possibility mentioned above, that "the man named in your query is Josiah Horn, b 1821, son of Thomas Horn, 1788-1867, the possible son of Josiah of Blooming Grove, a possibility called to my attention by Barry Ousley." Children of Josiah Horn and Elizabeth Allen are:
Mary E. Horn, born 1850.She married Jeremiah Bull.
Notes for Mary E. Horn: 8 August, 1999:Frances Osburn ([email protected]) reports to me the following: "My husband's people are from Montgomery County.Hisgreat great grandmother was Mary Eliza Horn who married Jeremiah Bull.We have not been able to prove her parents so don't know if Josiah is her father or not.Jeremiah and Molly are buried in the Bulle Wall Cemetery there in Cunningham TN. "Cunningham TN is about 6 miles southeast of Palmyra and justacross the river from Blooming Grove Creek. It seems likely that this daughter of Josiah Jr married Jeremiah Bull.
