Jacob Horner, youngest son of Jacob Horner, grandson of John Horner, the pioneer, b. in Hornerstown, & at one time owned nearly all the land in that locality. He laid out Hornerstown, which was called after his father, & also laid out Sandyvale Cem.. He was a substantial man, a farmer by principal occup., but a good business man in whatever he undertook, & if he saw an enterprise that promised better returns than the farm he was generally ready to invest. When the old PA canal was being built he was engaged in that work as a boss, & during the palmy canal days he owned a line of boats that ran between Johnstown & Pittsburg. For several yrs he was assistant superintendant of the old Portage RR. // Johnstown Trib 31 Dec 1874 d 4th Ward 29th (Thu), Jacob Horner, Sr., aged 71 yrs, 1 mo, 19 dys.

Johnstown Trib 2 Jul 1869 d at his residence in Yoder Twp the 29th of Jun, Mr. Samuel Horner, aged at abt 69 yrs.
Samuel lived in Conemaugh Twp and died, June 29th, 1869, in Yoder Twp. William CONSTABLE was the administrator of Samuel's estate. A list of inventory was made by George W. BHEAM. There was a receipt from the U S Internal Revenue to William CONSTABLE & Jackson J. HORNER. Chldn of Samuel: Mary Ann m. Edward W. Irwin; Jackson J. m. Julia Ann St. Clair; Susan; Robert; David J. m. Maria ? Elizabeth m. William Constable. Samuel is in the census in 1830 & 1840 in what's now the downtown area of Johnstown. He then moved to Morrellville, then in Conemaugh Twp , and later Lower Yoder Twp, before the 1850 census. George Bheam, married to Samuel's presumed sister Nancy, made a move to the same area about the same time. There is a Bheam Ave in Morellville. It would be worth checking wills or deeds to see if the old man Bheam may have left land to his kids in the 1840's.

Jacob C. Horner, youngest s/o Jacob & Catherine Horner, & ggson of John Horner, the Cambria Co. pioneer, was b. Hornerstown, Jul 26 1835, & has spent his whole life on the locality where 3 gen.s of the family before him have lived, & where some of his chldn & gchldn are now living. He was brought up to farm work & attended the common schools of the Twp. He followed the pursuits of a farmer, & d. 1842 at the age of 64 yrs. Christian HORNER, maternal gfather of our subject, was b. in Franklin Co., Jan 25 1778 & d. Oct 6 1865. Mr. HORNER was m. 1st in 1799 by Rev. STOY, the founder of Stoystown, Somerset Co. The same yr he removed within the present limits of Cambria Co. & 1st located near Johnstown. He was compelled to camp out with his family under a tree till he had a cabin erected to protect them from the winter. This was the yr before Johnstown was laid out by Joseph JOHNS. Subsequently Squire HORNER, as he was familiarly called, removed to the GEIS farm, Richland Twp. Here he resided until 1847, when he removed to Somerset Co. Mr. HORNER, in common with the residents of Cambria Co. at that early day, had to endure great hardships. Salt could not be produced at any nearer point than Bloody Run, Bedford Co. There the settlers, their only rd a narrow bridle-path, would annually resort & exchange their furs for iron & salt, & then lead their horses, laden with these necessary articles, over the mountain to their homes in the then wilderness. Salt at that day cost $4 per bushel. For a time he ran his father's line of canal boats between Johnstown & Pittsburg, & in 1857 went to work as a rail heater in the iron mills of Wood, Morrell & Co., which became the Cambria Steel Co. He continued at this employment until 1884, & then retired to give attention to his large personal interests. He is undoubtedly the oldest native of Johnstown now living in that city. In politics Mr. Horner is a Dem. He serv. 6 yrs Johnstown boro. council previous to the city charter & 4 yrs select councilman after the boro. became a city. On 1 Dec 1857, m. Mary Ann Shaffer, d/o Martin & Mary Ann (Kurtz) Shaffer, & gdaug. of the late Judge Kurtz of Somerset Co., one of the judges of the circuit court. On 1 Apr 1858, after their marriage, they began keeping house in their present home, where they have lived almost half a century. The disastrous flood of 1889 moved the house from its foundation, but caused no further damage. While the flood was at its greatest hgt Mr. Horner took refuge on the roof of his house, while his wife & some of their chldn were lodged in the branches of a lg tree. Although all of them escaped death in the awful rush of waters, their situation was perilous in the extreme. They have 5 sons & 3 dau.s living: Eva Belle, w/o George A. MATERS, Johnstown; Dora C., w/o Alonzo SINGER, Johnstown; Edward W.; Curtis E.; Jacob M.; Bertie E.; Otho I.; & Emory C. Jacob C. HORNER, a desc. of one of the early pioneer settlers of Cambria Co., PA is a s/o Jacob & Catherine (Horner) HORNER, & was b. Hornerstown, now the 7th ward of Johnstown, Jul 26 1835. His ggfather, Adam HORNER, a native of Adams Co., was one of the early pioneer settlers of Cambria Co., locating here when the prosperous Co. was principally a forest. They lived in Hanover, York Co, before coming to Johnstown.
