Hi Joyce,
    In the listings of the Ghent Cemetery there seems to be an error:
Horton Orrin D.   Jan.18.18?? 12-0-21 s/o Elijah & Eliza Horton
Horton Levi C.   Jan.19.1819 0-8-21 s/o Elijah & Eliza Horton
Levi's brother wrote this:
Letter from Omar Flavius Horton to Dr. George F. Horton, Author of " The Hortons in America" 1876 :
 "My oldest brother, Alvin Leroy born 1846; married 1871, to Charlotte Marie Tinsman.
My second brother, Levi Christopher, was born 1848,died 1849. Orrin Day, my brother next younger than
myself, was born1850, died 1864. The next brother, GEORGE HARRIS, born 1855, and my youngest brother was born in 1856." - Letter of O.F. Horton, 1874
The youngest brother was Guy E. Horton. Their parents were Elijah Horton and Eliza Hiney.They were married abt. 1846.
Either the Jan. 19, 1819 date was typed wrong or the headstone is wrong. I,ve never been to the cemetery but if I ever do get there I'll check the stone.   Thanks for your time; Mike Krusen
