    I am trying to find my father’s relatives. His name was Richard Milroy Horner, and he was born in Argos, Indiana. He had three brothers: Anthony, Elwood, and Jefferson. He also had three sisters: Julie, Georgia, and Luella. My father died about 1954. I was only four years old then and didn’t know that he had any siblings until after my mother passed away in 1985. I have been looking for them for quite a few years. If i could find out the family tree I could continue with my search. I dont know where to look.

      Linda,
      I can’t be of much help as my wife’s Horners are all from Somerset County, PA. However, I am posting your inquiry here hoping that a reader will be of assistance. Best wishes,
      Larry

    Thanks for your help, Larry. I am going to try looking in Somerset, PA, but most of my father’s family was from Indiana. They could have moved and resettled. My cousin, Donald Horner, told me that my father’s family settled in and around Buchanan, Michigan, about 1900. He also told me that our grandfather fought in the Civil War in Georgia, but he lost all track of him and my grandmother. He did’t know where they are buried and he stopped looking.

      Hi Linda,
      Perhaps some of our readers can provide additional information on your family and will post it here. Thanks for sharing, and by all means, inquire at the PA State Historical Center in Somerset.
      Larry
