William AlfredHorton
I can mot prove that William Horton who according to his stone was born in 1862 was the son of John Horton and Mary Ann Shackelford. As you can see, their son was born in 1859 and in the 1860 census he was listed as age 8/12

Wm A Horton
in the Kentucky, Birth Records, 1847-1911
Name: Wm A Horton
Birth Date: 7 Oct 1859
Birth Place: Owsley, Kentucky, USA
Ethnicity: White
Gender: Male
Father: John W Horton
Mother: Mary A Shackelford

Do you have any proof?

Centers-White birth city edits.
I can't find documentation for birth information. You sent a census notice that the family lived in Campton,but that does not verify birth city location,only state. Please send birth index or record doc and I will edit accordingly. I only edit what I can prove,not on supposition. This makes memorial accurate and keeps everyone happy. Thank you and have a wonderful week.

Hello again,
I accepted most of your edits that I could document. Those that I could not or that were partly correct I accepted and kept the correct data,but changed back the known data, until I could validate.

You sent several first names to be added to memorial. I will list names in bio section. I list all memorials as the stone reads for two reasons. The departed has the the final say on what name that they want to be remembered by. Also,when Findagrave photographers photo cem and add to database,most likely they check for name on stone,if not found,often they add name and dupes get made,and family links get confused.

Thanks for your help,and take care.

Rondal Arnett
You sent an edit to add birth city to Rondal's memorial. I can only find birth county listed in all docs that I have located. Most likely he was born in Campton,since the family lived in town,but I only add what I can prove.I am from Wolfe Co.,and although very small,each area has it's own name. If you could tell me where to look for birth city document, I will add it.
