Clarence, Jr. started to school at a rural public school near Albion at the age of five. While still in first grade his parents decided that Idaho was where they wanted to be and so they sold out,
lock-stock-and-barrel, and moved over the Oregon trail in their Model T Ford, to a farm near Melba, ID. Junior, as he was called, reentered school at Melba, still in first grade. He dropped out of school while in 10th grade and joined the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps). Following that he knocked around and finally became a Taxi Driver for the Hotel Boise Cab Company in Boise, ID. In the Fall of 1941, while deer hunting, he suffered a ruptured appendix, and when he woke up in the hospital he spotted and was smitten with a young student nurse named Clarice Emily Maust. On December 7th 1941, determined to avenge Pearl Harbor, he went to the Marine Corps Recruiting office and enlisted. On 4 June 1944 he and Clarice were married. At the end of the War, Clarence entered into an
apprenticeship to become a jeweler, but remained in the Marine Corps Reserve as a Staff Sergeant. Four years later the Korean War got him, and he had found his calling at last. He spent almost 33 years in the United States Marine Corps, eight of them at various overseas duty stations including two tours in Vietnam. He retired at the rank of Captain on the 31st of July 1976. Clarence and Clarice are the parents of a boy and a girl and the grandparents of four boys. Since retirement they purchased a long, long trailer and have visited every state in the Union and all the provinces of Canada, plus one 33-day tour of Mexico. When they're not travelling they keep themselves busy going to baseball games, doing club work (particularly, National Sojourners and Eastern Star). They say these
retirement years have been the "Best Years of Their Lives," and they intend to keep on doing what they're doing as long as physically possible.

[NI023438] Four brothers of Abraham came to Ohio from Kentucky and settled in Pickaway County, Ohio. They were Isaac, Michael, Simon, and John.

[NI023440] The first Hornback in the records is Simon. Perhaps in time the records will extend back beyond that. Simon Hornback was one of the associates of Daniel Boone, settling with him in Kentucky when the country was full of Indians. To be more secure he came down the Ohio River in a flat boat. He settled in Bourbon County, KY. At one time he was making salt on Licking River with other settlers when they were attacked by Indians. The redskins out numbered the whites who had to retreat fron tree to tree fighting as they went back home. One man killed three Indians in the engagement. They then obtained reinforcements and returned to their salt works. Boone on one occasion was taken prisoner by the redmen and was gone so long that his wife thought him dead and she packed her few goods on a mule and set out through the wilderness for Virginia. It is likley that the children of Simon were all born in Big Valley Pennsylvania as most of the men who went out to Kentucky had received grants of land for service to the government and the 1784 census of Hampshire County, Virginia, gives Simon Hornback with a family of thirteen. Therefore, the children were born in Virginia and they went to Kentucky after 1784. The Will of Simon Hornback is recorded in Will Book 3, pg. 114, of Bourbon County, Kentucky, written December 17, 1800. Witness were Andrew Trumbo, John Artman, and Martha Trumbo.

He appears on the 1784 Wilkes tax list, still without any land. Absher, Wilkes Co., NC Taxables 1784- 1785- 1786, p.9. Raleigh A Randal Walker appears on a 1788 Fayette Co. tax list. Some Pre-1800 KY Tax Lists, supra, p.11. Renelder appears to have come to KY by 1802, when he 1st appears on the Knox Co. tax rolls without land; he had 1 male over 16 & under 21 (maybe Jesse). He had a Warrant for acreage on Clear Fork, which was then in Knox Co.. He appears on the 1807 Knox tax rolls with 1 white male above 21, 1 white male 16-21 & 2 horses or mules, & on the 1808 Knox tax rolls with 1 white male above 21, 1 white male 16-21 & 5 horses or mules. The 16-21 male cannot be Jesse, as he is separately listed on the rolls. He appears on the 1809 Knox tax rolls with 1 white male above 21 & 7 horses or mules. On 6 Apr 1813 he obtained Warrant Certificate No. 146 on 6 Apr 1813 from the Knox Circuit Court for 136 acs on the "Clare" Fork of the Cumberland River, pursuant to the Tellico Claims settlement. The land was surveyed on 2 Apr 1814, Survey No. 559. The Original page of the record in the KY Sec. of State's Office is ukwn; the Grant is dated 16 Jul 1827 & is recorded at Original pg 700-701. He is "Renalder" in these documents. He assigned his claim, however, as Gov Desha signed a deed to a Sampson Stanfield on 16 Jul 1827. Renelder made his mark. Another interesting thing is that the description of the land contains a call on a line between a Pendleton & a P. Walker, & the signatures of the witnesses are those of Pleasant Walker & Elias Walker. He appears in the 1810 Knox Co. census as Rinelder. In his household were 1 male 45 or over, 1 25-45, 2 16-25, 1 10-16 & 1 under 10. There was 1 female 45 or more & 3 aged 10-16. He had no slaves. He appears on the 1819 Whitley tax rolls with 135 acs on Clear Fork, 2 horses/mules. He had no slaves. He appears in the Whitley Co. Tax Lists, with land as late as 1821, but without land through the 1825 listing; the lack of a listing of land may be a result of an exemption he received from taxation in 1820 & not the actual lack of ownership. In the 1st Whitley Co. Order Book, p.106 there is found the following entry on Mon, 12 Jun 1820: "Ordered by the Court that Reanelder Walker be exempt from paying Co. Levie in future in case of infirmity." He does not appear on the 1826 listing. There was a great exodus of Walkers from Whitley Co. to MO abt 1825, & that has been taken as an indication that he d about that time. On 3 Oct 1826 Jesse Walker acted as agent for his bro, Samuel, which is mentioned here only as an indication that Samuel was already gone by that date.

Jonathan Yoder lived in a number of different places including Berks, Mifflin & Juniata Co.s, PA, & McLean Co., IL, near Carlock. He was chosen preacher in 1825 & latter bishop. In 1849 2 sons, Elias & Amos, & his bro Joseph came to McLean Co., IL. Elias settled in Dry Grove Twp what is now the Kinsinger farm. His bro Amos came to the same place. In the spring of 1851 Yoder & the rest of the family came to Dry Grove Twp, McLean Co., IL. He bought a 40 ac farm not far from his son, Elias, & engaged in farming till about 1860 when he and his wife went to live with his son, Amos. Here Mrs. Yoder died February 2, 1869. Yoder then went to live with his daug Mrs. John Sharp near Congerville, IL. When Yoder came to McLean Co., he became a leader of the Amish people of Danvers & Dry Grove Twps. He also had quite a large following of his own people from PA who came abt the same time he did. Soon after his arrival he organized a congregation & they held meetings in the homes of membs. In the spring of 1853, a church house was built at Rock Creek, where are now the Rock Creek Fair Grounds, abt 5 mis north of Danvers. His death came in rather an unusual way. A minister's meeting was held at the home of his daug, Mrs. John Sharp, in the latter part of Jan, 1869. At the noon hr when Mrs. Sharp invited the ministers to the dining room, Rev. Yoder said he did not care to eat & would rather lie down & rest. The other ministers went to the table & after dinner when they came back into the room they found he was passing away. He d Jan 28 1869, at the age of 74 yrs, & was bur on Simon Lantz,s farm now the Lantz Cem. a few mis southeast of Carlock.
