This Horton family originates in Virginia very early. Nelson Horton was an early immigrant to Middle Tennessee, Rutherford County. He was probably the father of Elijah Horton, the proven patriarch of the family. This Elijah Horton connected with his neighbors, the Wadley family, through his marriage to Rachel Wadley, daughter of Samuel Wadley who was a wealthy landowner. Later, his son, Mason Dodson Horton married his first cousin, a Wadley, in Fulton County, Kentucky. This family eventually removed, after the Civil War, to Texas where hundreds of descendants now live.
