In Reply to: Joseph Hon-Daniel Boone connection by Tara Wolf of 229

I think sometimes that the name Hon was often called "Horn" and vice-vesa; I do know the Aaron Horn family was at Boonesboro, having come there in April of 1778 and I know for a certainty that they had to have known Daniel Boone; one of my late husband's ancestors, Charles Horn (Estill Co, KY)married under the name Hawn, I think a lot of it was where they were from and how they pronounced their name; I read once that the folks in Massachusetts left the "r" out of their words and the folks in VA stuck an "r" in all their words, hence a lot of name changes over the years..........oh, well, for what it was worth....I've often wondered if the Joseph Hon/Horn that was in Madison Co might have been related to my Horn line................Diana
