Could anyone advise the name of George Joseph Horn(e)s first wife? I have read on another posting that she may have been a MIC MAC Indian, is this true? George married
Rachel Rodgers Cook after the death? of his first wife in
Quebec. George is the son of Francois Savary and Jacob Horn
who settled in Eastern Passage. I thank you for any help.

I don't remember what web page I got this info, but it could have been on the Mitchell web page.
I was always told that my Mitchell side of the family had married a MicMac. Colin Peter Mitchell b. 1795 married an Eliza Anne Horne b. 1804 d/o George Horne. I always believed that Eliza was the MicMac. It was only last month that I found a web page on the Hornes and realized that Eliza was not a MicMac.
The lineage as I have it is:
Michael Horne and Barbara Lobenger. He came to NS on the Gale, Rotterdam to Halifax as a single baker June 12, 1751 age 36, arriving at Halifax July 29, 1751 (Deserted to the French).
His son, Jacob Horne b. 1720, Strasbourg, Alsace, France, d. April 16, 1821, Eastern Passage. He married Frances Anastasia Savary, d/o Andre Savary and Mary Doucet.

Their son: George Joseph Horne, b?, d. April 18, 1848, Eastern Passage in the Horne Cemetary. George Joseph married twice - first to ? and second to Rachel (Rogers) Cook, married May 23, 1805 at St. Paul's Church.

Their daughter: Eliza Ann Horne.

Any further info you get please share it with me. And any corrections on the info I do have, please correct.


HORNE, George Joseph

Jacob Horne was the son of Michael Horne and Barbe Lobgerine (there are various spellings of her name). Jacob Horne emigrated to Canada, but his parents did not. Jacob is shown on the passenger ship for the "Gale" "Liste of the Passengers with their Name, Age, Professions and freights mentioned on board the Gale, Thomas C____ Master bound from Rotterdam to Halifax the 12th June 1851". Jacob Horne is number 85 on the list:
Jacob Horn, age 23, from whence Darmstad, Profession Farmer

I have been told he had a brother, Jean Horne, and he is shown as number 102 on the list:
Johann Horn, age 36, from whence Strasburg, Profession Butcher.

Jean and Jacob Horne (as well as Mathias Nagle [Naugle] and Augustine Wolf) deserted to the French. Jacob married Frances Anastatia Savary on 1 March 1756 at Port la Joie (now Charlottetown), Ile St. Jean (now Prince Edward Island). In order to marry Frances Savary, Jacob had to make a "profession of faith and abjuration" so he obviously was not Catholic. The profession is, of course, in French. I was given a translation which gives the names of Jacob's parents "Today, the fifteenth of February, one thousand seven hundred and fifty six, I, the undersigned, Royal Chaplaine, Priest of the Parish of Port Lajoie, certify that Jacques Horne son of Michael Horne and Barbe Lobgerine, his father and mother, inhabitants of Strasbourg, and Mathias Nagle son of Christophe Nagle and Lisabeth Nagline, his father and mother, inhabitants of Strasbourg, have with a resolute faith confessed to me in front of the church..." etc.

Jacob and Jean Horne (and their families) eventually settled in Quebec and received land grants. At some point Jacob and Frances Horne returned to Nova Scotia and he took an oath of allegiance to the Crown.

St. Paul's Anglican Church Registers show George Horne baptized 24 April 1768 (it does not give a date of birth). Christ Church Anglican Registers in Dartmouth show:
George Horne, of South East Passage, buried 20 April 1848, aged 83 years. This would give him an estimated date of birth of 1765, close enough to the baptismal date in St. Paul's.

Although I have had information given to me as well that George Horne was married before he married Rachel Cook, I have not found any records that would give information on the first marriage. St. Paul's Anglican Church Registers show he was married 23 May 1805 "George Horn Bat'r [Bachelor] to Rachael Cook Wid'w [Widow]" by licence. So either George was a bachelor when he married Rachael Cook, or a someone erred in describing him as a bachelor.

George Horne's Will (dated May 15, 1848) of "the south Easte passage of Halifax" mentions his wife Rachel, "my three sons George Horne, Provo Horne and Alexander Horne" and "my Daughters Mary Ann Jinnoks [Jennex], Eliza Ann Mitchell, Rachael Naugle, Lucy Hannah LeRae and Maria McRae".

The MicMac belongs to the Wilmot family who married into the Horne family it was Peter Wilmot. And the Osborn family. All of these families are connected through marriages.

This is wrong it isn't the Osborn family but the Wilmot family who married into the Horne family.
The Wilmot was Peter and he was the Chief of the tribe at the Indian Reserve Trust Pictou co. Peter had a son Charles who had a lot to do with them.
Peter is the son of John Wilmot and Mary. He married Isabella Innes d/o Daniel Innes b 1869 and Margaret b 1870 in Scotland.
I guess his other kids didn't do that much they were William S.M b 1879, Margaret 1881 and Frederick AL b Oct 11, 1877 who is the father of Catherine Florence Wilmot b 1903 and married Ambrose Leo Horne and her mother was Maude Osborne.
There is a lot of info on line about this tribe and Chief Philip. A picture of him and another of his son and wife.
