.       Abraham Horton,1                                                                                                                               (ancestry unknown)
.
.            b 1722 (? Bucks Co, Pa); d 1 Jun 1816 Toms Creek, Surry Co, NC.
.               (Some sources say his father was John Horton, Jr, b 21 Apr 1702 Springfield, Hampden Co, Mass, and Mary Chapin.  John
.                was s/o Jeremiah Horton, b 22 Nov 1665 Springfield, and Mary Terry.  This seems unlikely as John and Mary married in 1727
.                and Abraham isn't in most of their lists of children.  In fact the only time Abraham is in their list of children is if one looks at
.                the ones generated by researchers descended from Abraham.  The websites that start with the Hampden Co, Mass Hortons, then
.                work down, do not list Abraham.  This has the appearance of a forced linkage that is unlikely correct.)
.            m 9 Mar 1745/46 to Martha Williams Brissell, b 1726 Bucks Co, Pa, d 1808, d/o James Williams and Priscilla Roberts.
