Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 11, 1795
Niagara County
New York, USA
Death: Feb. 1, 1884
Indiana, USA

Cornelius Van Horn was a son of James Van Horn and Elizabeth Hall Van Horn.

Cornelius Van Horn married first to Eliza Jane Phillips on January 12, 1825. Per Barbara Wolf's information (below), they had one child, a daughter. Another daughter has been linked in, so if Sarah L. Van Horn Jones was a daughter of Cornelius Van Horn and Eliza Jane Phillips, I will gladly update this paragraph.

Cornelius Van Horn married Hannah Mariah Barns Getter on November 3, 1841. They had two children.

Cornelius Van Horn married third, after Hannah's death, to Rachel UNKNOWN. Barbara Wolf's information (below) shows Cornelius Van Horn's third wife was Sally Purdy and they married on either November or December 13, 1957. If someone can offer more about this third marriage, I will gladly update this paragraph.

Cornelius Van Horn was 88 years, 2 months, and 20 days old at the time of his death.

Cornelius Van Horn owned the land where Jordan Cemetery is situated.
