Janet's Genealogy Page
descendant of Isaiah Horton. He was born Dec. 17, 1777. Although the family claims his birthplace as Louisville, KY, that is impossible. He was either born a there a year later or born somewhere else at the date given. Supposedly, his father was the Rev. Azariah Horton, who died at Bottle Hill (now Madison) NJ on March 27, 1777. This line goes back to Barnabas Horton of Southold, NY. Isaiah migrated to Warrick County, IN by 1821 and settled there with a number of his children from two marriages.

Horten Information

I received an email from a Horten surname researcher explaining that the Horton surname and Horten surname are in no way linked other than spelling errors. The Horten surname (per the email) is of German origin and is a common surname in Germany. The meaning is said to be "treasures". There is a chain of department stores in Germany called Horten. Also the Horten surname has a completely different crest of course and if anyone has a graphic of that crest I'll gladly post it here. If anyone has any information about the Horten surname please email me.

Orton Links

I've had a request to add a link to the Orton Family History Society here. Although this center is for the Horton/Horten surnames this variation of spelling could be clues to someones research. This is a very informative site.

Bill Orton Jr.'s Family Tree - This is a family ancestor chart of many generations.
