. Abraham Horton,1 (ancestry unknown)
. b 1722 (? Bucks Co, Pa); d 1 Jun 1816 Toms Creek, Surry Co, NC. His middle name supposedly Querton.
. (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. DNA evidence, acc to Ref
. 7 below, says he is not related to the Mass Horton.)
. m 9 Mar 1745/46 to Martha Williams Brissell, b 1726 Bucks Co, Pa, d 1808, d/o James Williams and Priscilla Roberts.
