Hannah Parley Horton

Hannah Parley Horton was born about 1787, in New York. She was the daughter of Isaac Horton and Hannah Farris.

The Horton family moved to Virginia between about 1800 and 1804. Hannah married Robert "Squire" Stooksberry (Stooksbury) on December 23, 1806, in Montgomery County, Virginia. Robert Stooksberry was born about 1782, in Virginia, the son of Jacob Stooksberry and Elizabeth Moorehead.

Robert and Hannah settled in Anderson County, Tennessee, where we believe all of their children were born.

The family appears on the 1840 Anderson County, Tennessee census. The census shows one male 50-59 (Robert); 2 males 20-29 (Samuel and Robert, Jr.); 2 males 10-14 (Alfred and William); one female 50-59 (Hannah); 2 females 20-29 (Anne and Nancy) and 2 females 15-19 (Hannah and Rebecca). Living near by was their son Isaac and his family. Their son Jacob and his family were living in the same area.

The 1850 Anderson County census, 16th Subdivision, shows Robert Stuksbury, 68, a farmer, $800 real property; Hannah, 62; Anna, 26; William, 22, a farmer; and Jane, 19. Living with the family was John Cornett, 17, a farmer, born in Tennessee. Several of their children and their families were living near Robert and Hannah.

Robert died in Anderson County about 1857. I have been told he is buried at Bakers Forge Memorial Cemetery in Campbell County, Tennessee.

The 1860 Anderson County census shows Hannah, 74 years of age, living with her son William and his family in the area of Wallace Crossroads Post Office. Hannah's daughter Hannah and son-in-law John Gilbert and family were living next door. Living near by were other members of her family.

Hannah died about 1861 in Anderson County. I have been told she is buried with Robert at Bakers Forge Memorial Cemetery in Campbell County, Tennessee.
