Thanks for responding to my query on John Hartshorn. I am a historian in Stafford County, Virginia and came across John's name in the records of the Principio Iron Company. From about 1728-1752 Principio operated an iron furnace in Stafford. One known business ledger exists and is in the collection of the Delaware Historical Society. I utilized this document in my research on Stafford iron furnaces. The Delaware Historical Society granted me permission to transcribe and publish the ledger and, as a part of that effort, I tried to identify each person in the ledger. It was for that reason that I posted the query on the Hartshorn Genforum. My book was published last July and I was able to find a little information on John Hartshorn, though there were several by that name. I wish there was a bit more information on John's involvement in the Principio company.
