Horner-Bozarth Connections in New Jersey

Bozarth Researchers, I have been researching my own Horner line and keep coming across connections to the Bozarth line. I thought I would share some of what I've found in case it can be of help to this family.

"Benjamin Horner was the second settler on the Wilson farm. He was an Irishman, having been born in "Old Erin" He married Miss Mary Murphy, sister of the four Murphy Brothers, and went from here to Roane county, where they both fell asleep. He had a son, Benjamin, by a former marriage, who went west with Valentine Bozarth." data source for this information was West Virginia History, Ritchie County found at

Then in an 1860 Census, Southhampton Township, Burlington County, New Jersey...Page 29 , lines 37-40 and continued on page 30, lines 1-5 and lines 26-28 it reads:

John Horner age 62 Master farmer
Elizabeth Horner age 63
Sarah E. Horner age 20
James McFadden age 20 (from Ireland)
Benjamin Bozarth age 17 Farm apprentice from NJ
Mathias Scott age 16 (from England)
Elizabeth Mingin age 17 NJ
Matilda Hendrickson age 14 NJ
Charles Horner age 21 Pennsylvania
(all of the above were one household)

Elizabeth Bozarth age 53 NJ
Jane Bozarth age 21 NJ
Melvina Bozarth age 2 NJ

*As an added footnote: Elizabeth and Jane had been listed as unable to read or write.

Good Luck, S. Horner/Allen
