Robert Lewis Horner

Brownsville, PA 15417


McGinnis-DeCosky-Welling-Horner are the surnames of all my grandparents. All of my families have been long time citizens of the United States having served in the American Revolution, War of 1812, and Civil War, except the DeCosky name which I have very little information about those ancestors. DeCosky came from Poland approximately around 1880-1900. The Horners settled in Maryland around what is now Baltimore, moved to Southwestern Pa around 1800, traveled to Ohio and settled out west. I have much information available on the Horners. The Wellings settled in Montgomery County, Maryland, moved to Southwestern Pa after the Civil War and mostly stayed in Fayette County, PA. The McGinnis' came from Scotland around 1760, settled in New Jersey, moved to Southwestern Pa around 1775, moved to Ohio around 1840, then further outwest in Iowa, Colorado, and Washington. The DeCoskys came from Poland around 1880 and settled in Altoona, PA. I have very little information on this family.
