Matthew Horn

Matthew Philips Horn
Born 11 June 1792 in Edgecomb County NC
Died After ? in Wilson County TN
Married Martha T. Babb in 1817 in Wilson County TN
Matthew is the son of Joel Horn (1751-1793) and Sarah Philips.
Matthew and Martha had the following children:

When Joel died in Edgecombe County NC Etheldred was a baby.  His mother Sarah moved to White's Creek north of Nashville TN to be near her brothers Joseph and Mathew Philips.  Etheldred's uncle, Benjamin Philips, was appointed guardian for him and his brother Matthew.

Matthew and Etheldred Horn appear on the 1811 Davidson County Tax List. Based on information from the staff of TSLA, this Tax List was a survey or tally of potential taxpayers, collected by the Justice of the Peace for each "precinct", and a number was assigned to each taxpayer. It seems likely that numbers close together probably indictate proximity of residence and property location.
In this 1811 Tax List appearing on the same page of the Tally are the following:
Joseph Philips
Etheldred Horn
Matthew Horn

In 1813 Etheldred Horn purchased 640 acres on Barton's creek/ Wilson county TN, and the next year he sold 383 acres on Barton's creek to Matthew Horn. These two brothers are frequently cited in various records of Wilson County, apparently as successful and responsible citizens. Barton's creek is east of Lebanon Tennessee, the county seat, and just west of the community of Horn Springs.
