Husband of Elizabeth Green (who was first married to Nelson Boggs who died at the Civil War Battle of Middle Creek in KY). J. K. P. Horton was the son of Reese Duff Horton and Susan Cox of Carter Co., KY. Reese Duff was the son of Travis Horton and Rebecca Lester. J.K.P.

Thank you so much Chuck for the wonderful photo! Now if I can only find the discard pile in the cemetery, maybe I can find the rest of it. A little late but Happy Father's Day great grandpa.Ann
