Parents of Rachel Horn and Esther Horn
Posted by: Kerry C. McGrath (ID *****3840) Date: December 18, 2005 at 13:15:27

The Likins brothers, William and Gravenor, of Greene County, Tennessee married a Rachel Horn and an Esther Horn (possibly Esther Horn Squibb) in Greene County Tennessee. Reportedly, Rachel and Esther were sisters. Have not been able to determine if this is true or the identity of their parents. Any information, suggestions, or hints would be appreciated.

Here is the information that I have:
William Likins Jr.(b. Dec 17, 1802 Fredrick VA; died Dec 1, 1882, Ozark Township, Lawrence Co Missouri, buried Johns Chapel Cemetery, Greene County Missouri. His second marriage ca. 1835/1836 in Greene County, Tennessee, was to Rachel Horn (b. 1807, d. June 8, 1887 Lawrence Co, Mo, buried Johns Chapel Cemetery, Greene Co Mo). William and Rachel had two sons:
1. James Squibb Likins (b. Jan 1846 Greene Co TN; d. before 1930 in Goschen Co WY)married married Rosannah Louisa Compton.
2. William Franklin Likins (b. 1848 Greene Co Tn, d. 1916 Greene Co Tn, buried Sunshine Acres, Greene Co Mo)married
first to Julie/Juley A. E. Neely, second to Rebecca Jane DeFord.

Gravenor Likins (b. 1806 Greene Co Tn, d. Gravenor's second marriage was to Esther Horn Squibb on 19 October 1843, Greene, Tennessee. Presumably, the three know children of Gravenor are the product of his marriage to Esther Horn:
1. David Moore Likins (b. SEP 1844 in Rheatown, Greene Co., Tennessee, d. 8 DEC 1910 in Leavenworth, Kansas) Married: 22 JUL 1866 in Greene Co., Missouri to Elizabeth Ann Yeakley (.b: 22 DEC 1842 in Green Co.,        Tennessee, ,d: 31 DEC 1923 Yeakley Chapel Cem, Bois D'arc, Greene Co., MO)
2. William G. Likins (b. July 1847 Greene Co Tn, d. after 1900 Lawrence Co, Missouri) married Catherine Taylor/Louisa Catherine Layton on 20 August, 1868 , Lawrence Co MO.
3. George W. Likins (b. July 1850, Greene Co Tn, d. after 1920, Lawrence Co Mo)married 24 October, 1872 in Greene Co Mo to Mary A. Owens.

I believe census enumerations give Esther and Rachel Horn's birth places as Tennessee or North Carolina.

Is it possible that Esther Horn is the daughter of Jacob Horn of Northhampton County Pennsylvania? Could these two women be related to any of the Horns who were part of the North Carolina Quaker community? Various members of the Likins family became Quakers in the eighteenths and early nineteenth centuries.

As noted earlier any direction, clues, suggestions regarding the parents of Esther or Rachel Horn would be most welcome. I have information about the Likins family from late 18th through 20th century--branches that moved to Missouri and Illinois-Iowa which I would be happy to share.

Thank you.
