*HORN, Nathan Sgt NC. Pension Application #R5232. DAR Patriot Index: b 27 May 1762 NC, d 1834 KY. Marr I: Nancy Jennings, 2: , 3: ____Dishman. Lived in NW Simpson. Listed in Simpson 1820 Census and Simpson 1830 Census.

additional information received 2 Oct 2002:     You list my 3g-grandfather Nathan Horn who is buried in Logan Co. None of the DAR applications that name a wife Dishman have any documentation to prove this and my documents prove otherwise. His 2nd wife was Sarah Harris who died before 1821. She is named as his deceased wife in an 1828 Southampton Co., VA Chancery Court proceeding. Logan County marriage records show Nathan married 3rd to Elizabeth Cleaves 11 Mar 1822 and it is believed that this is the Elizabeth Horn who is buried on the Akers Farm in Logan Co, very close to where the top of the headstone for Nathan Horn's grave was found under a barn that had been torn down. Evidently Nathan was buried next to Elizabeth but his tombstone got knocked over and hauled away to use as a foundation stone under the barn when it was built and it has just recently been found when the barn was torn down on the property next to the Akers Farm.   submitted by Tom King  PS Your data is correct for my other 3g-grandfather William Breedlove. We had a government marker added next to his and his wife's old tombstones.
