I have reason to suspect that in 1860, Christopher Robinson/Robertson and wife Catherine/Katherine Salsman/Saltsman and their child Marion Monroe Robinson might have been living with a Hornback family in the Larue County, KY area. There are many, many Hornbacks in that county census, also in surrounding counties. I will eventually get around to checking all these households, but until then, it would be wonderful if someone has already discovered Christopher, Catherine and Marion "Roe" living with one of their Hornback families. Any takers? Will be thrilled to exchange information. Thanks,

It is quite likely the family that you are looking for are Isaac Hornback and his wife, Louisa (aka Eliza) Richardson, who were married in Larue Co, KY in 1857, and lived there for the rest of their lives. They had some cousins named Robertson, and while I haven't traced the lineage, the closest I have found yet are J. H. and Penina Robertson. So that may be the connection, or at least shine a little light in the right direction.

Let me know,

Gordon Beck

hi Gordon,

I'm showing Louisa was married to Isaac's brother Jonathan -- this came from some old info and may have been corrected by now. Their father Isaac and mother Catherine Joseph Hornback were my g-g-g-g-grandparents. My Robinson (originally Robertson) line married into the Hornback line more than once, all in Larue County. I still haven't found my g-g-g-grandfather Christopher Robinson/Robertson in ANYONE'S household in the 1860 census, yet he had a child in Larue Co. in 1858, and died in Larue Co. in 1861. The possibility he was in a Hornback household was a shot in the dark, but since then I have checked every household of EVERY name in Larue, Hart, Green, Edmondson and maybe a couple of others in 1860. I still need to check Hardin, though. Had no luck with any Saltsman households, either, and Katherine Saltsman was the mother of the child Christopher had, although I suspect she wasn't his wife. I'll keep looking, and thanks for responding!

Regarding Charles B. Hornbeck born Oct 10, 1810, died Nov 9, 1877 Larue Co., KY who married Mary Ann Logsdon..... at the Hornbeck Surname Resource Center it shows that he was a son of Jacob Hornbeck and Nancy ---. A descendant of this couple has come forward and it seems that he was NOT the son of Jacob and Nancy Hornbeck after all! I have not yet corrected the database at the HSRC... but you may want to make note of this.... he is Charles Brandenburg Hornbeck and he is a son of Daniel Westfall Hornbeck and Suzy Tucker..... and it is still unknown if Daniel is a Westfall or a Hornbeck and the newly found descendant doesn't know either! However... she was able to provide us with a lot of information on Charles Brandenburg Hornbeck's descendants.

Mary Ann, I'm sorry but I don't even have your Charles in my database - I do have a Jacob, but I don't know if he's the same individual as your Jacob. I don't have a spouse for him, but I show his parents to be James Hornback and Rebecca (?, James being the son of Daniel Hornback and Mary (?). I don't even have any dates on these folks. I wish I could have been more help.
