Horton Family Stew Home Page

Updated September 5, 2000

My name is Cheryl Horton, and I live in Texas. I have just now begun the quest to find my ancestors, and appreciate any help, tips, and knowledge I can get. My line of Hortons is so far only traced back to my great grandparents on all sides. The first goal is to find out information about my great grandfather Bascom Horton who was born in Jefferson Co. Tennessee in 1867 or 1862. Bascom moved to Texas about 1886. He was married to Mary Leona Gunter November 23, 1892. They resided in the Collin and Dallas Counties area. Bascom died in Seagoville, Texas in 1937. I do not have his father's first name, but know he was married to a Martha Beech or Birch. It is possible Bascom had an aunt named Jane who was married to a Rufus Fields. His grandfather's name was William Horton, born about 1785. William was married to Harriet ?. Harriet was born about 1790 in North Carolina, and died between 1870-1880, I'm assuming in Tennesse. She does show up in the Smith County 1870 census along with Bascom. Hopefully this information will ring a bell in someone else doing research. Other surnames to be searched include Gunter, Millaway, Brookshire, Pringle, Coons, Carney, and Prashaw. All of these being the last names of my other great grandparents. I am compiling all the info that is presently available on all of my family members, and will be more than happy to share what I have. Once I have completed this, I will place it on this page. Thanks to others who answered my very first posts for info, I have some extensive info on the Brookshire family, and a good start on the Gunter family. I have yet to start looking for the last 4 surnames above. Good luck everyone in your searching! I hope to update this page just as soon as I get the hang of this!
