A Little Horntown History From Burley Turner
Burley graduated in the class of 1932
Reported by his daughter Jean (Turner) Grimm
talked with Daddy about Horntown over the weekend. He said that
Emmit Horne's father was T.C. Horne and he had a store 1 mile west of Moss
on the northeast corner and this was called Horne's Corner. He later moved
the store to the southwest corner at Horntown. He also sold Ford
cars there and was the only Ford dealer in the area. Later, a Mr.
Hawthorne built a store on the northwest corner and Franz Lawyer, who was
Guy Webber's uncle, build a store on the southeast corner. There
were a few houses on the northeast corner. Daddy wasn't sure about
the spelling of these names.
Does anyone have any more information to add to Burley's
recollection? Does anyone have any pictures of any of these
buildings? If so let me know.
