RE: Maria Gast
Thank you so much for checking into your records and for searching the headstones for me. I really do appreciate the time that took. I'll make note of your findings on the memorial and mark her location as "unknown".

Catherine (Forney) Horner
I sent you a rambling email a few minutes ago in which I mentioned an article I'd written years ago about a wagon train. I looked it up again, and it's part of a bio I wrote Catherine (Forney) Horner's son, Benjamin Horner, my great-grandfather. Here is a link to it on the Genealogy Trails, Carroll County, Illinois website:

My source was an article John H. Judy (son of Franklin and Susan [Forney} Judy, who are buried in Silver Creek Cemetery, Richardson County, Nebraska) wrote and published February 6, 1945 in the Falls City, Nebraska Journal. The wagon train started in Carroll County, Illinois in the spring of 1869 and was formed by Church of the Brethren Elder John Forney, who was a brother of Catherine (Forney) Horner, my great-great-grandmother. The advance party went out in spring of 1868 to Falls City, Nebraska and bought 1000 acres of land, then returned to Illinois to form the caravan.

It's this caravan that I'm referring to, and I'd be interested in whatever additional information there is on it and its members. Thanks so much.

Thanks So Much
Thank you so much for taking that tombstone photo of Catherine Horner's grave at the Silver Creek Cemetery. Catherine (Forney) Horner was my great-great-grandmother. I have my information on her on my Rootsweb tree, "the Horner Family of Carroll County, Illinois (And Nearly Everyone Else)." I'm looking for any information you have on them when they lived in Nebraska. They were on that huge wagon train of 1868, I believe it was then. It may have started in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, which is where Catherine Horner lived until maybe the end of the Civil War. Her son Peter Horner had already moved to Carroll County, Illinois in the 1850s, and didn't move on to Nebraska. My great-grandfather Benjamin Horner was on this wagon train, and I can't determine if he'd moved to Illinois before the Civil War, or after. He didn't stay in Falls City, Nebraska, where the wagon train ended; he moved onto Abilene, Kansas. I wrote a piece years ago on this wagon train, which I think is on the website, Genealogy Trails, Carroll County; I'd love any information you have on this, including a list of who was on it, and/or any information you have on Catherine (Forney) Horner.
