Hi John, just came across this while I was looking for something else, but I have found the Horne Cemetery, or I know where it is. I have not been in the cemetery, but my husband and I went to where it is but since it was in the hot summer, (and I hear this area is called "rattlesnake country") we decided to wait until the fall to go back and go in it. It is located off Highway 25 just inside Edgefield County from Aiken County. Turn onto Old Macedonia Road and take a left at a dirt road which I cannot think of. You then take another left from that road and follow around past an excavation area and on up a hill. The cemetery is off to the left in the woods.
I have pictures of some of the graves there that were taken in 1941, along with pictures of a house that Mom says "Great Uncle Elijah's house. The cemetery is about 100 years from this house." This picture shows the house and a barn out in the back. There is still a building there which the new owner tells me is the barn in this picture. There is evidence of a building that has fallen down which I believe is this Elijah Horne's house. I take this as being the home of Elijah Horne who married Jane Galloway.
I also have a picture of "Great Grandfather's house, where Mother and Daddy were married Dec. 24, 1899." My mother-in-law's grandfather was James Absalom Horne and his father was Samuel Savage Horne. This would be the home of Samuel Savage Horne.
I also have a picture of "Grandfather Horne's house. This is where all the children were born. He lived here before moving to Great grandfather's home to care for them in their old age." This would be the home of James Absolom Horne and Cornelia Jane Donald Horne.
I am in the process of scanning a lot of pictures and once I get that done I will send you copies. By the way, my mother in law is a stickler for writing on the back of photographs which is great for this purpose.
I heard recently from Linda Welch that you had been here in town. When you come back again, please call me ahead of time (803-663-3446) so we can get together.
