John E. Horn, James M. Horn

John E. Horn "one of the heirs at law of James M. Horn, deceased" a quarter in 15, 6N 51W in 1890. Witnesses were John J. Warriner, Joseph B. Payton, Jefferson D. "Bsown", and William C. Kelly, all of LeRoy, Colorado.


In 1890 the U.P.R.R. timetable had listed J.M. Horn as agent.

In August 1899, John E. Horn had conveyed a quarter in section 22, and defaulted on the note.


In 1870 Colorado Territory, John Horn was 25, as stock herder, one of a dozen working for Charles Goodnight - yes, the one of the Goodnight-Loving Trail. John is 25, born in Kansas (doesn't seem likely...)

The John M. Horn dying 1890, a prominent Park County, Coorado rancher, is a possibility. He awas born 1818 in Pennsylvania, and is buried in Park COunty.
One of his children was John Carnahan Horn a prominent Prowers County, Colorado minister, doctor and judge 1849-1932.
- doesn't seem like it's the John E. Horn of Logan COunty.
