Taken from the Bozarth Beacon Oct 1987 Written by: Theore W. Bozarth THE HORN PAPERS A CRUEL HOAX. In 1945, the greene County Historical Society at Waynesburg, Pa. published a three=volume book called the THE HORN PAPERS, purportedly a historical account of people and events in Greene County while that area was belived to be in the colony of Virginia. This included several references to a "Creaux" Bozarth, supposedly Comissioner to the Indians on behalf of the French government at Quebec, and his wife, Elizabeth. Without questioning the improbability that Catholic France would entrust such responsibility to a Huguenot (as Creaux is described), several serious BOZARTH researchers have been misled by this account. It is pointless to guess what this fiction writer intended, and his charge that Creaux Bozarth, (the real BOZORTHS of that place and time used the two "O" spelling on Wills and Deeds) had instigated the infamous attempt on the life of Maj. George Washington by an Indian in 1753 is nothing but the rambling of a fevered mine. By combining true historical accounts from other sources with his imagined events, the author, William Franklin Horn, of Topeka, KS was able to fool a number of serious students of the history of Southwestern PA. and disrupts the orderly research of the genealogy of the family of John Bozorth and his wife, Innocent Borden, who did first go to the Greene County area from New Jersey before settling in Frederick County, Va., apparently with other Burlington County, New Jersey families induced to go to Va. by Mrs, Bozorth Uncle, Benjamin Borden/Barden, Mentioned in many true histories of western Virginia.
