looking for any information about Horners in Nova Scotia. I think there were just two Horner families in the 1800s, so any information about anyone with the last name Horner would be appreciated.

I have lots of information but too many puzzle pieces missing.

Thanks.

Hi listers:

I have a Sophia Bayers born about 1807 in Nova Scotia. . Her parents might have been James Bayers and Margaret Horner.

Any help in putting these pieces together would be deeply appreciated.

Let me know if there is a link up to these names.

Thanks;

Hello!

it's been so long since I have done ancestry work since we live far away from the US and Canada! it is exciting to think about it again.

> You can find my great grand father in the 1901 census of > Halifax his name being William his son is Joseph ...

Unfortunately, based on my research, I found that there are two family paths in Nova Scotia, mine that is descended from Alexander Horner who came from Northern Ireland via the British Army and settled in the opposite corner of Nova Scotia from Halifax (I still have Horner cousins in Digby Neck), and the Halifax family that has no connection with my Horners. In fact, I saw quite a few Horners in the Halifax area from the same family.

Where did your first Horner come from? I have all my notes in storage, and so don't remember the details any more.

Hi,

I just read your posting after all two years. I don't have any record of a Mary Jane Horner. Did you find out more information where she came from? My ancestor settled in southern Nova Scotia (Dalhousie settlement) and then his children and grandchildren were in Yarmouth, Digby, Bear River, etc.

My mother's family is linked to the Nova Scotia Horner family in Halifax - Martha Horner married to Thomas Hiles. Their daughter Daisy married William Howe my grandfather. Would be interested in knowing if anyone else information that might relate.

Hi! I saw your posting. Sadly, though, your Horner branch is a different one that seems to be from the Darmouth/Halifax side of the island. Mine settled in Dalhousie after getting out of the British army (he came from Templepatrick, Northern Ireland) and my ancestors came from Alexander. They settled in the south and western part of Nova Scotia.

Surnames: Greenalch, Horner, Homer, McIvar, McDow, Roach
My family is connected to the Horners in Dartmouth/Halifax.

I've seen marriage certificates for:

1874 marriage of Mary Jane Johnston - [age 23, spinster, parents David and Maria] and George Homer (likely incorrect transcription of Horner) - [age 20, bachelor, parents Elizabeth Horner].

The witnesses at this marriage were John McIvar (who I believe was married to Sophia Horner) and Emma Roach (whose parents I believe were William Roach and Jane Horner).

1885 marriage of Mary J Horner - [age 35, widow, parents David and Maria] and John Greenalch (this is the transcription spelling) - [age 42, bachelor, parents John and Susan].

One of the witnesses at this latter wedding was Emmeline McDow. It is possible that this is Emma Roach who married Charles McDow in 1884. Emma's parents were William Roach and Jane Horner.

I'm still trying to piece this information together to see how it connects to my Horner family. I trying to find the connections/relationship betwee Jane (Horner) Roach, George Horner, and Sophia Horner.

I'm interested in any other information you might have.
