Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1775
Halifax County
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1818
Washington Parish
Louisiana, USA

Julius was the son of Samuel and Jane (Swart) Horton and the husband of Susannah Purnell whom he married about 1799 at Halifax Co., N.C. After living in N.C. for forty years Julius gathered his family and moved westward. He gave his father-in-law, John Purnell, power-of-attorney for his land and property before he left N.C. Stories are that he left N.C. because he had killed someone, however, the circumstances are unknown. By 1818 he had settled in Washington Parish, Louisiana, where he "died of a fever", leaving his wife, Susannah, and their several younger children. Julius' oldest daughter, Nancy, and her husband, James W. Bulloch (an experienced soldier and frontiersman) were with the Horton family. The decision was made that the family would continue west to Texas where the Mexican government was granting new land to immigrants. (Julius' burial site in Washington Parish is unknown).
