Birth: Oct. 30, 1847
Marion County
Ohio, USA
Death: Dec. 18, 1932
Elliott County
Kentucky, USA

wife of William Lester Horton. Grave recorded May 30, 1977, visited again Sep 2008 to find headstone gone but footstone remaining, cemetery in bad shape, grave sunken in, footstone uprooted and lying on ground. Kentucky Death Cert # 28366 year 1932 gives birth and death dates but notes father was John Hood born Scotland and mother was Eliza Colegrove born Ohio, notes burial was in Horton burying ground.
However the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Census all record John Hood and wife Eliza having been born in KY. The 1880 census still records John Hood being born in Kentucky but wife Eliza being born in Vermont.
The Eliza Colegrove mentioned was the daughter of Jeremiah Colegrove of Vermont and Olive Stephens of Steuben Co., NY.
Jeremiah Colegrove and family moved to Greenup Co., KY where they died.
Sister of the Erastus M. Hood also buried this cemetery
