A German named John Horn, writes the Albany (N.Y.) Argus, who worked on the farm of the late David Dietz, drowned last Saturday evening, while he was fishing with a net on Shoharie Creek. Horn was about 25 years old and leaves a wife and child who live in Wisconsin. (1863)
A news tidbit for Horn family researchers gleaned from Milwaukee's German newspapers. Indexing started in 2007 and continues today.
