Mr. Horton was born in Alabama and came to Hamilton while a young man.
For many years he was connected with the mercantile house of Wm. Maxwell.
Stated in the 1897 Herald:
"When it comes to laying for trades in land, stock or any other
species of property, or in rustling for business of whatever general
character, it is well enough to see Horton about it and, if you can,
secure his active cooperation."
Mrs. Horton still lives here (1938), their daughter Mrs. Gib Toland,
lives in Waco, and their son Carry, lives in San Antonio.
