Mary (SURANY) HORN, b.1724
What is known of the Surany name? I am related to Mary M.Surany (b.1724) married to Moses Horn (1719). It is like a dead-end with this line in North Carolina. Can anyone help solve the mystery?
Thank you for posting so much factual information on the Horn family of Edgecombe County. Is this possibly a typo in the subject line for the Will of Michael Horn (1875)? It appears to me that this should be (1785)instead.
