Notes for D
Daniel Horton was born in England about 1655-1658. He "came into Nansemond County, Virginia November 10, 1674 under James Peters" according to "Early Emigants, Vol II." This suggests that he was an indentured servant, who in most cases served about seven years before he was free to seek his own way. Daniel is listed in the Isle of Wright County, Viriginia, Rent List for 1701, indicating he was not a landowner at this time but was an independant farmer. In 1704 and 1705 he appears on the Rent List of Nansemond County, Virginia for 200 acres. He signed administrative returns of Robert Carlisle in 1711.

William H. HortonJr., Daniel Horton where brothers of William H. Horton
and Mary Kendrick. They also had a younger bro. named Lewis, here's how the
story goes...

Abner Vance was a highly respected citizen and a staunch Hard-shell
Baptist preacher. When Abner was away hunting, his daughter had a habit of
visiting neighbors. Lewis Horton and Susanna apparently started spending
time together while her Papa was gone. Daniel the older brother found out
about the affair and ordered Lewis to take the girl home. The three headed
back to her fathers cabin with Susanna riding behind Lewis. When they
arrived, Abner was standing on the porch. Lewis shoved Susanna off the horse
and said "Here is your damned gal, I don't want her." Of course this
infuriated Abner and he got his rifle. He and Daniel exchanged words and
Abner pointed the gun at Daniel. Lewis is said to have gotten in the middle
of them and said "Shoot and be damned." The Lewis rode off and were mid stream
of the Clinch River when Abner fired once and struck Lewis in the back.
Daniel was able to get Lewis to a nearby neighbors house where he died a few
hours later. Abner had 3 trials which ended with him being found guilty and
ordered to hang. As they pulled the lever to hang him, a courier arrived
bringing a pardon from the governor. They quickly cut him down. He died 6
hours later. This comes from "Early Settlers of Lee Co. and Adjacent
Counties and was sent to me by a Kendrick cousin. Hope it helps. Sherri
