The information below comes from a Horn web site that had much addional information about Joel Horn and his relatives.

The will of Joel Horn was signed by him on 16 September, 1793, and probated in Nash County, November court, 1793, will book 1, p. 85. The following typescript of that will is prepared from a copy of the will, printed on p 207 of the Ray Horn Book.

Sarah's children were placed in guardenships after Joel died:
Howel       1793-1798 Josiah Horn
                 1798          Jacob Horn
Milbrey     1793-1803  Jacob Horn
Rebecca   1793-1803 Jacob Horn

Etheldred 1793-1798 Benjamin Philips

It is evident from numerous transactions and recorded events that, following the untimely death of their 42 year old father, clearly an intelligent and already very successful young man, the five children of Joel Horn by his first wife, Ann Harris, were placed under the guardianship and care of several of Joel's close relatives, while the two very young children of Joel's second wife, Sarah Philips, were assigned to the guardianship of Sarah's brother, Benjamin Philips.

Within a few years after Joel's death, Benjamin Philips, his sister Sarah and her three children, Charlotte Horn, Etheldred Philips Horn and Matthew Horn would emigrate to middle Tennessee, living in the same community where their brother,
Joseph Philips and his wife, Milbrey Horn Philips (Joel's niece) had moved in 1791 and where they were enjoying excellent prospects.

Although I am aware of no specific recording of either the death of Joel Horn's first wife, Ann Harris, or of his marriage to Sarah Philips, the facts recorded in Joel's will and the documented names, movements, interactions and fate of Sarah Philips siblings, ancestors, and sons seem to establish without serious question that his second wife was Sarah Philips, as described herein. The Philips family is well documented in Edgecomb County, NC, and the naming of Sarah Horn's first son as "Etheldred Philips Horn" offers the strongest implication of his parentage and ancestry, and the numerous related events, both before and after his birth, make that conclusion irrestibly self-evident.

The following information comes from my research:

Sarah Philips Horn, widow of Joel Horn, must have arrived in TN about the time she made her first purchase of land near her brother Joseph as shown below. 

1799, 8 January: Deed signed transferring 50 acres on Whites Creek (TN) from David Shannon's 640 acre 1786 NC Land Grant to Sarah Horn. Davidson county court, 1800.  This land adjoined her brother Joseph Philips' land near Old Hickory Blvd. and Dickenson (now Dickerson) Pike.  The record is in Davidson Co. TN Deed Book K, Page 181.  Deed filed 21 Feb 1800.

The description of Sarah's 50 acres of land in the deed above states that her land is part of James Shannon's 640 acres NC land grand and meets the NE corner of James Mare's land, both of which show up in the land grand overlay map created by the authors of the book "Founding of the Cumberland Settlement" shown below.  This land lies on Old Hickory Blvd. just west of Dickenson/Dickerson Road and just north of the 640 acres that Sarah's brother Joseph purchased after he moved to the Nashville area in 1791.

1802, 20 January: Deed signed transferring 14 acres from Joseph Shaw on Whites Creek (TN) to Sarah Horn. To Davidson county Court in April Session 1803.  This was a month before she married William David Hunter who lived on White's creek. The record is in Davidson Co. Deed Book F, Page 40.  Deed filed 20 June 1803.                           

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:

#801 Joseph Philips.
#802 Etheldred Horn.
#804 Matthew Horn.

Eltheldred Horn's descendant founded the Horn Springs Resort in Wilson County on land once owned by Eltheldred.  Following is a story about the Resort as published in the Wilson County Living Magazine.

Click on this Horn Springs link to go to the Etheldred Horn web page to read about the history of this resort hotel and hot springs.

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 extant community of Horn Springs.

In his will below, William David Hunter set aside a burial plot where he was to be buried on his land after his death.  Since he was buried in what is now known as the Marshall/Hunter Cemetery, I wondered if that was the land he owned and if that was where he and Sarah Philips lived until they died.  So I looked at the deeds of land he purchased to see if I could see where they were.  So far, I have not been able to identify their exact locations.

David Hunter purchased 36 3/4 acres on Whites Creek from James McCallister in September 1807, filed in court 30 March 1808, and recorded in Davidson County deed book G, page 268.                            

David Hunter purchased 4 3/4 acres on Whites Creek from Andrew Hoover on 27 March 1829, filed in court 16 June 1829, and recorded in Davidson County deed book S, page 176.

David Hunter purchased land on Whites Creek from William Neely on 26 January 1838, filed in court 27 March 1838, and recorded in Davidson County deed book 1, page 464.

David Hunter purchased 1 acre in Davidson County from Adam Kline, etux on 13 May 1850, filed in court 6 September 1850, and recorded in Davidson County deed book 13, page 575.

We see from the will of William David Hunter that he called his wife "Sally" rather than her given name "Sarah" and that she was deceased at the time he wrote his will.  The will also indicates that there were no issues from the marriage of William David Hunter and his wife Sarah "Sally" Philips.


Davidson County, Tennessee, Will Book 18, Page 579, 580

In the name of God Amen!

I, David Hunter, of the County of Davidson & State of Tennessee, feeling the uncertainty of life, being of feeble, spurious health, but of sound & disposing mind & memory, do make & constitute, this my last will & testament, hereby revoking all others.

Thirdly, I give to my nephew, Jno. T. Hunter two hundred dollars, also two slaves, Charles & Gilbert, & he is to take Charles at 400 dollars and Gilbert at six hundred dollars said Negroes to him & his heirs forever & he is to account for them at that price with any Executors in the distribution of my Estate if they are living at the day of my sale.

If there shall be a surplus in the hands of my Executors after paying the legacies herein before given to be paid in money, how that surplus to be divided amongst my several devisees in proportion of the money legacies given each one (the grand children of my dead wife Sally, excepted), for they are to have nothing from my estate but what they will take under the eleventh clause of my will.

November 9, 2001: Robert Gordon Horn located a cemetery which almost certainly is the burial site of Sarah Philips Horn. The cemetery is in the White's creek area, where she purchased property in 1799-1803. The Marshall cemetery, address below, contains the following gravestone:

Front inscription: HUNTER/ SARAH HORN/ 1771 - 1850/ WILLIAM DAVID/ 1775 - 1850



The cemetery is at the top of a small knoll, on property occupying the northeast corner of the Old Hickory Blvd - Lickton Pike intersection. The cemetery is just to the west of a residence located at 7343 Old Hickory Blvd, ZIP=37189. No one at home, no name on mailbox.

The cemetery is in excellent repair. The Hunter gravestone with the name Sarah Horn inscribed as the wife of William David Hunter is of recent vintage, presumably representing a replacement marker.

Location of the Marshall/Hunter Cemetery on the Foster 1871 map.  Note the Hunter and Marshall on the map.

(From the Davidson County Cemetery Survey with corrections by me)

The Marshall Family Cemetery is located on Old Hickory Boulevard. From Nashville take 1-24 toward St. Louis, get off at Old Hickory Boulevard exit # 40 and turn left. Follow Old Hickory Boulevard about 3/4 mile to house number 7343, the house will be on your right. It is an older red brick house about 250' off the main road with a large old barn on the left side. The cemetery is left of the barn at the top of the hill. There are many graves with no headstones, only rocks. We were told these were slaves. Not all of the stones are readable. Phillip Marshall Hunter restored the cemetery several years ago, and many of the stones were replaced. It is being maintained now by his brother, John Hunter, from a trust fund established by Phillip.
