5501 While there is not concrete proof that Elizabeth was a Horner and the daughter of George Horner and Priscilla Winslow I believe that she is based on the following pieces of circumstantial evidence:

Lydia Hunsucker is the second known burial [after her likely grandfather George Horner] in the Melton/Muse Cemetery.

Abraham Hunsucker can be found living very near George Horner, purchasing items from George's estate as well as the estate of Ancel Melton. Ancel married Lydia Horner - likely Elizabeth's sister.

Finally, Abraham and Elizabeth named two of their children George and Priscilla.

5502 While we have not been able to prove that William and Moses are the children of Aaron Ritter it is the long held belief by several Ritter researchers. Partially based on the belief that Aaron Ritter has not been located between 1790 in Surry County, NC and 1830 in New Hanover [present day Pender County] NC. He is believed to have migrated north into VA and then west into Eastern TN prior to relocating to Pender County, NC near his brother Moses. Family F12141

5506 William L. Wallace was involved in several court cases with Delphy Lakey, Elizabeth Smith & Mary Davis in the early 1840's. It has been passed down through family history that these court cases were in regards to William L. Wallace living with more than one woman at one time. It was ruled that he must marry one or he would go to jail. He married Elizabeth Smith.

5508 William Lane Wallace was one of the more colorful of the Wallace characters, spending a great deal of time in trouble with the law and rumored to have fathered children by multiple women. He was involved with numerous court cases with Delphy Lakey, Elizabeth Smith & Mary Davis in the early 1840's and it has been passed down through his descendants that he was living with all three and the court finally ordered him to marry one of them. He married Elizabeth Smith. He fought in the Civil War and eventually moved to Dillon, SC. He is most likely a son or grandson of Everet Wallace.

5509 William Reeves, according to THE HISTORY OF Marshall County, was the son of Reubin Reeves who moved to Marshall County from Alabama in 1830. However, a daughter-in-law of Louisa Eliza and William, Mrs. Addie Bethel Reeves, was of the opinion that he came from Virginia. William had previously married Priscilla Jane Reed and their daughter, also named Priscilla Jane, married Alexander Lee Riley, a son of Anna Mariah Wallace Riley as sister of Louisa Eliza Wallace. William was a soldier in the Mexican War. (from the work of Allen Wallace.) Reeves, William (I24945)
 
5510 William Riley is believed to haved lived most of his adult life in Macon County, Missouri (from the work of Allen Wallace). Riley, William (I24988)

5512 William Wallace [1791/1800-1843] was married to Chaney Berry Cranford and lived most of his life near the Uwharrie River and Ophir in Montgomery County, NC. Many of their children migrated to western KY and can be found residing among and intermarrying with the descendants of the other Wallaces from the nearby area. While we do not know the idenity of William's parents, it is my belief that William was not a sibling to the Isham, Nathan and Eli Wallaces of Graves and Calloway County, KY but more likely a first cousin. It has been passed down through William's descendants that his siblings were Harbard/Harbart Wallace [1796-1872], Ann Wallace [1803-1900], and Elizabeth 'Betsy' Wallace [1800-1905]. Harbert also moved his family to Graves County, KY in the 1830's while Ann married William Hall and remained in Montgomery County, NC. Betsy married Phillip Hagler and lived most of her life in neighboring Stanly County, NC.

5515 Wyatt Williamson and Martha Williams Cagle were married in 1890. Raleigh Cagle was born out of wedlock in 1858 many years prior to their marriage. Martha listed her parents as William and Mary Williams in 1890. This would lead me to believe that Martha was married to a Cagle after 1850 and prior to Raleigh's birth in 1858. The Cagle likely died sometime between 1850-1858. Martha and Raleigh can be found next door to Wyatt Williamson in the 1860 Census and then with Wyatt in the 1870 and 1880 Census. They were married three years prior to Wyatt's death in 1893. Family F6339
 
5516 Y-DNA tests have proven that Chestley Horner was actually not a son of George R. Horner.

The Y-DNA test results of Charles Horner [son of Jesse Gilbert Horner < Jesse Rufus Horner < Chestley Thomas Horner] is an exact match to Darrell Horner [son of John Bunyan Horner Jr. < John Bunyan Horner < William R. Horner < Chestley Thomas Horner]. Given that their closest Horner relative was Chestley himself, we are certain that the Y-DNA they currently possess is the same as the Y-DNA that Chestley possessed. In comparison, Don Horner [son of Joseph W. Horner < Josiah Turner Horner < James Washington Horner < George Washington Horner < George R. Horner] submitted his Y-DNA and it matches a male descendant of Thomas N. Horner [twin brother to George R. Horner] but does not match Darrell or Charles' confirming that Chestley's Y-DNA did not match that of his believed father, George R. Horner.

I've written up an analysis below and would be happy to talk to any of you further. Please know that this is very common. Many times, DNA results ultimately tell us that our ancestors aren't always who we think that are. I've had the same thing happen on several of my lines.

Darrell and Charles' Y-DNA very closely matches two Williamson males from upper Moore County. Y-DNA is specific to males and is passed only from father to son. So a male's Y-DNA is the same as his father, his father's father, his father's father's father and so on.

Given that Charles and Darrell's Y-DNA matches the Williamson family rather than the Horner family means that somewhere along the line a Williamson male fathered a Horner son. Based on research I believe that is it most likely that Chestley was fathered by a Williamson [or a male with Williamson Y-DNA].

We have always wondered if Chestley Horner was in fact a son of the Revolutionary War soldier George R. Horner. In fact, the main reason for having Darrell and Charles tested was in hopes of proving this. Chestley was born around 1827. He would've been the last child of George Horner and his second wife Priscilla Winslow. George Horner was born in 1761 and his second wife Priscilla was born in 1784. This would've made George 66 years old when Chestley was born. Priscilla on the other hand would've been 43. Fathering a child at 66 is certainly not impossible as there are plenty of examples of it happening, however it does seem unlikely. Chestley was also not mentioned during the application process for George Horner's Revolutionary War Pension nor Priscilla's application for a Widow's Pension. [Note: There are many errors throughout these applications citing George and Priscilla Horner's date of marriage prior to Priscilla's birth and son George W. Horner's testimony that he was born in 1784 when in fact he was born in 1817. I have always believed that these misrepresentations were due to the fact that George Horner's was married prior and legally separated in 1811 in Orange County, NC. His wife Elizabeth Fussell Horner later migrated to Dickson County, TN. I believe that Priscilla and son George W. Horner testified inaccurately based on concern that the first wife and family might be entitled to the pension if all were revealed.] Back to Chestley. From Moore County court and tax records, we know that Chestley ended up with the George Horner land on Locust Spring and that Priscilla was listed as his mother.

1849 -- Tax List, Moore County, NC District 9
Prissey Horner 170 acres valued at $200 on Locust Spring

1852, Oct 27 -- 1851-1853 County Court Minutes, Moore County, NC Page 337
Ordered that Chesley R. Horner be released from payment of $0.50 charged on land taxes against him and his mother least for the same charged in 1851 to be paid in 1852.

1852 -- Tax List, Moore County, NC District 9
Mrs. Priscilla Horner 170 acres valued at $220 on Locust Spring
Chestly Horner 1 white poll

1853, Jan 5 -- Priscilla's date of death from tombstone

1854 -- Tax List, Moore County, NC District 9
Chesley Horner 170 acres valued at $220, 1 white poll and 1 black poll

He is also found in the 1850 living with George and Doxy Horner Williams. I am fairly certain that Doxy Horner was a daughter to George Horner and Priscilla Winslow and therefore a likely sister to Chestley. Another circumstantial piece of evidence is that Chestley?s grandson John Bunyan Horner was born in 1891 and his father William died in 1896 in Hope Mills, NC. As a young boy John Bunyan was orphaned, sent back to Moore County and adopted by William Thomas Horner. William Thomas Horner was the son of George W. Horner and grandson of George R. Horner.

All of this leads me to believe that it is likely that a Williamson male fathered Chestley. It is entirely possible that no one knew that as he was clearly treated as family, ending up with the family home place as well as he and his descendants have very close affiliations with other Horners.

Lastly, utilizing the results of Malinda Singletary's Autosomal DNA [which includes all lines not just paternal as with Y-DNA], she is a match to Ken Poole. Ken descends from the Williamson family and is also a Y-DNA match to Darrell and Charles.
