Ronald Berryhill Received all the above information from the Green County Historical Society, October, 1996. His research continues.

On page 142 of the 1820 Greene County, Sugar Creek Township, Ohio census lists Alexander Berryhill as head of Family. It lists 1 male 0-10, 2 males 10-16, 3 males 18-26 and 1 male 45 up. It also list 1 female 10-16, 1 female 26-45 and 1 female 45 up. The census shows 3 persons living in the household being engaged in farming.

  Notes for Rachel Thomson:
Alexander Berryhill and Rachel Thomson were married April 5, 1786 by Reverend Archibald Scott. Rachel was the daughter of William Thomson and a niece of Charles Thomson. Charles Thomson was a secretary to the First Continental Congress; a man of some executive ability and writer. His Translation of the New Testament was a four volume work and the copy, his niece had, is still in the possession of her descendants.
Alexander seems to have been a very active and industrious citizen of Virginia and very successful in his endeavors. He is recorded as being named to positions of trust and seems to have the confidence of his neighbors. In 1808, William Thomson, in his will, named his daughter, Rachel Berryhill, as one of the legatees.

We are not certain of the exact spot where they lived in Virginia. The biographies of all say they were born in Augusta County, Virginia. Archibald near Staunton, Augusta County, William T. Mentions being born near Brownsburg, Augusta County, Virginia. Warden Crow places them near Moffett’s Creek, Post Office. Alexander Berryhill (genealogist of Pittsburgh) placed them at a place now called called Church Ville, near Staunton.

It appears that James and Mary came to Missouri between 1838 and 1840 based on the birthplace of their children.

During the Civil War, James lived in Douglas County, KS.
Children of James Hornback and Mary McIntyre are:

  i.   John Hornback, born August 24, 1827 in Champaign county, Ohio.

  Notes for John Hornback:
From the History of Jasper County Missouri, published in 1883 by Mills and Company of Des Moines, Iowa

Judge John Hornback, judge of the county court, pioneer settler, and farmer of Jasper county, is widely known as one of the early inhabitants of Jasper county, as was his father before him. He was born in Champaign county, Ohio, Aug. 24, 1827. At the age of four years his father , James moved to Tippaconue, county, Ind., and in Ovt.1838, arrived at then almost unknown Southwest, settling where his son Judge Hornback now lives in Jackson township, southwest of Carthage. James Hornback entered this land before the county was surveyed, which comprised a track of 556 acres, and died on his estate at the home of his son, July 29, 1877, at the age of eighty one.

The subject of this sketch was about eleven years of age when he came to this county, and has therefore been chiefly raised and educated in this county. He was united in the holy bonds of matrimony January 24, 1850, with Eleanor Walker, who was born in Highland county, Ohio, in 1831, and has been deceased since May 2, 1877; she left eight children, whose names are as follows; James F., Mary I., William W., Malinda E., George D., John G., Eleanor S., Ira W.

Mr. Hornbach is a member of the Masonic order; he was a member of the Kansas Militiamen, with rank of first lieutenant. In 1863 h3 left jasper county and settled in Douglas county, Kan, during the civil war, returning to Jasper county in 1866.

Judge Hornback owns a good farm of 320 acres, raising 700 bushels of wheat, 1500 bushels of corn, 500 bushels of oats, and a fine orchard producing quantities of fruit.

Judge Hornback in the earlier history of the county was a judge of the county court, and has always been quite predominately identified with its public enterprises and improvements. He shared the peculiar experiences of pioneer life, so mingled with hardships and joys; as long and tedious journeys, by slow ox team, to distant markets; and then the house-raising for a neighbor , ten miles distant; the hunting of game then so plenty, and the welcoming of the ‘Tenderfoot," etc. Judge Hornback lives in the quiet of his rural home in sections 19 and 30, township 28, range 31 of Jackson township. He is quite prominently known as a greenbacker, and commands the respect of all men and parties.

  ii.   George Hornback, born 1829 in Ohio.

  iii.   James M. Hornback, born 1830 in Ohio; married Polly Fraker August 08, 1849.

  Marriage Notes for James Hornback and Polly Fraker:
The Family Tree Maker CD listing certain U.S. marriages between 1728 amd 1850 list this mirrage in Cedar County, Mo. This researcher is not certain of this connection and research continues.

  27 iv.   Jariska Jane Hornback, born November 28, 1832 in Iowa; died 1869; married Terry Wiley Brock October 24, 1850 in Jasper County, MO.

  v.   Willaim Hornback, born May 09, 1834 in Indiana.

  Notes for Willaim Hornback:
From the History of Jasper County Missouri, published in 1883 by Mills and Company of Des Moines, Iowa

William Hornback, farmer and stock-raiser , section 28, post office Carthage. The subject of this sketch first saw the light of the famous Tippecanue battle ground, Ind., may 9, 1834, his father having settled in Indiana at a very early day, and owned land upon which Gen. Taylor acquired so much fame. He immigrated to southwest Missouri and settled four miles southwest of where Carthage now is, which was then the very outskirts of civilization. There our subject spent his youth and early manhood, assisting his father in clearing and making a farm, and acquiring what education he could by the limited means then in vogue. In 1855 or 1856 he, with a younger brother, located a claim on section 29, Madison Township, erected a cabin of black hickory logs, and ‘kept bach" while breaking and improving sixty acres. His brother died in 1860, and our subject administered the estate; he sold the property, taking the purchasers’ notes due in one year, but before the paper matured the civil war broke out and the makers of the notes scattered he knew hot where. During the subsequent years of the he shifted about as best he could; tended the crops when the country was free from armed bonds, his greatest difficulty being to keep his cattle from falling into the hands of marauding parties, in which effort he was not always successful. In 1853, he drove what stock he had left into northern Kansas and sold them.

He then went to Montana and engaged at mining and teaming. From there he went to British Columbia; then to Lewiston, Idaho; then to Dallas City and to Portland, Ore.; Chico, Cal.; Idaho City, Idaho; and San Francisco; then to Humboldt, Nev.; again back to Chico and Sacramento, and took shipping for New York via Panama ; then to Douglas County, Kan., whither his parents had fled during the civil war, and returned to Jasper County April 9, 1866, his travels having occupied three years to the day.

He then resumed his farming operations, or in other words made a new start. He rebuilt his fences destroyed by the hostile parties and raised a fair crop the same year, for which there was a good demand and good prices. He was married April 30, 1868, to Miss Elizabeth E., daughter of John and Nancy McMeechan (deceased), a native of Greene County, Mo., but reared and educated in Decatur County, Iowa. Of this union there are three children living; John J., born Jan. 29, 1869; Mary N., born march 13, 1872; and Hattie M., born Nov. 16, 1877. His farm consist of 100 acres, well improved, with fine house, orchard, etc.; he also owns sixty acres of timber.

From the History of Jasper County Missouri, published in 1883 by Mills and Company of Des Moines, Iowa

Samuel Hornback, one of the early pioneers of Jasper County was born in Ohio, April 5, 1838. His father, (James) came to Jasper county when Samuel was a mere babe, and he has therefore been reared and educated here. The schools of the early day were very primitive, and held in log school-houses, having none of the modern conveniences; and for the most part the schools were select where each paid a monthly tuition. His instructor was Peter Copelan, who had about thirty-five pupils, and charged $1 a month for each scholar. At the outbreak of the civil war Samuel Hornback enlisted in the Missouri State Militia, acting as a scout. He was married March 18, 1866, to Rebecca Criss who was born in Marion county, West Va., March 1, 1848. Their children are Benjamin, Leroy, William S., Albert A., and Ellery E. Mr. Hornback owns a fine farm of 100 acres, well improved, raising good crops of wheat, corn, and 1,500 bushels of apples having four acres of the finest orchard in the county, besides an abundance of small fruit. This farm is located in section 19, Township 28, range 31 of Jackson township four and one-half miles southwest of Carthage.
