Subject: [BALTGEN-L] HORN in MD
Date: Wed, 19 May 1999 20:15:00 -0700


To all: I have spent the entire afternoon reading MD data.

I found that Sarah Franklin married William Horn on 28 October 1697 in
Anne Arundel CO, MD.

Sarah Franklin Horn, widow, married John Parrish on 11 mo 23 day 1700
at the West River MM in Anne Arundel CO MD.

Sarah Franklin married first William Horn (Dallam's St James Parish,
pg 427).
On 25 September, 1698 "came Robert Franklyn in behalf of his
sister Sarah Horn and desired Letters of Administration upon ye
Estate of William Horne her husband late
of Anne Arundel County (Testamentary Proceedings 1697-1699,
Anne Arundel Co, Vol 17 pg 213,
MSA)

Sarah (Franklin) Horne's second marriage to John Parrish, son of
Edward and Clare ( unk) Parrish, occurred at West River Quaker
Meeting House on 23 da 11 mo 1700 (Marriages West River MM,
1682-1826
microfilm M639, MSA) Their marriage certificate was signed by the
bride's uncle and aunt, Richard and Elizabeth Gott, and her mother
Sarah Willoby, among others. Robert Franklin and Artridge (Giles)
Franklin of the prominent Quaker Giles family are noted by Kelly,
Quakers in Anne Arundel. op. cit., pp59, 92, 110-111.

THIS CLEARLY SHOWS that Sarah Franklin and William Horn were only
married from the 28 October 1697 to sometime just before 25 September
1698......less than one year.

THEREFORE, the William Horn who died in Baltimore CO, MD btw date of
will 27 April 1705 and proved 9 June 1705 was NOT the husband of Sarah
Franklin. His will said that his sole heir was Francis Horn.
Testors were Matthew Green, Jno Ledson and John Wilson.

There was another William Horn who died in Anne Arundel CO , MD. He
wrote his will on 8th February 1704-5 and it was proved 19 October,
1719. He devised to his wife, Margaret (executrix) and dghts,
Sarah and Margaret (Horne) and gdght, Constelvus (Constance) Horne.
Testors were Samuel Galloway, Robert Franklin
and Joseph Ror.

Thomas Parsons and wife, Isabella unk. had dghts: Eliza, Isabella
m. Anthony Holland, Susannah, Sarah, Hannah, Mary m. Mordecai Price.
(So named in the wills of Thomas Price and Isabella Parsons Capell.
Mordecai Price and Mary Parson were the parents of Steven Price who
married Constance Horne (her parents not named).

Most of the above data came from the footnotes on THe Richard Gott and
his Descendants, etc, by ernest c. Allnutt, Jr in the MARYLAND
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY BULLETIN Vol 33 Spring 1992 No 2.
