  • Name Lydia Horner 
    Born 1812 
    Gender Female 
    Notes 
    • On the Death Certificate of Missouri Melton Stutts her mother is listed as Lydia Horner and father as Henry Melton. It is my belief that Lydia was the daughter of George R. Horner and Priscilla Winslow based on a few pieces of circumstantial evidence. Lydia's daughter Louisa is buried in the same family cemetery as George R. Horner and Priscilla Winslow. Lydia's second husband Issac Williams was a brother to George Williams, husband of Dory/Doxy Horner. Also interesting to note is that Missouri's sister Temperance Melton Spivey's Death Certificate lists her father as Tinsley Melton and mother as Tempie Holloway. It has been reported by other Horner researchers that Elizabeth Holloway was George R. Horner's mother. While the information on the Death Certificate seems to be inaccurate it is quite possible that the informant was mixed up on the generations. Holloway was not a surname found in Moore County, NC during this time.
