Her husband died in 1870 and she raised her nine children on the farm 1 mile east of Paola.

Query Surnames: Van Horn

Date: 16 Jan 97

Query: My family is Van Horn. They definitely lived in Ossawatomie in 1896, the year my grandmother, Pearl Margaret was born. John Calvin VanHorn was married to Mary Frances Canfield. They were supposed to have migrated to Oklahoma about the turn of the century. John Calvin and Mary Frances had these children: Verna b. abt. 1883, Myrtle b. abt. 1892, Johnny b. abt. 1893 and died soon thereafter, Marcus Tenny b. about 1895, Pearl Margaret, b. 1896 (or maybe 1898.....there seems to be a question there), and another John b. 1901 and died when he was 16 (but he must have been born either in OK or TX). My Ggmother, Mary Frances Canfield-VanHorn supposedly went back to the Kansas City, KS/Paola/Ossawatomie area where she died. There was some talk about her being linked to a man by the last name of "Husley", but we're not sure if she married him later in life or if he was just a suitor. She and John Calvin divorced in the early 1900s. If you have any information on this line, or on the line of John Montgomery Canfield in the same area, please let me know.

Susan Strain BStrain659@aol.com

Response:The only reference I found to Van Horn was in Cemeteries of Miami Co., KS, Vol. I, p. 102, Indianapolis Cemetery located in Osawatomie Twp. In row 6, grave 1, Van Horn, John (broken stone). no further information was available. There were references to Husley but several to Hussey but none appeared to relate to what you were seeking. In Cemeteries of Miami Co., Vol. II, p. 129, Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Row 6, Grave 46, Canfield, J. M. father 1864-1947; Canfield, Fannie, wife, mother 1860-1920. In Family Histories and Stories, p. 326, notation that Harry Fay Russell's first wife was Georgia Mae Canfield.
