Transcribed by Marcia Siegfried Redding


J. H. H. Horney, the subject of this sketch, was born in Warren county Ill., Aug. 3, 1841, and is a son of Lemuel and Cynthia Horney, the former a native of North Carolina, and the latter of Ohio. Mr. Horney was reared on a farm and educated at Monmouth, Ill,; he began teaching in 1861, and has taught for the most part since that time, save during the war. He served one year in the late war in Co. H, 118th I. V. I., filling the office of Sergeant. He was discharged on account of disability at the expiration of one year. The best evidence we have of Mr. Horney’s merits as a teacher is, that he teaches two or three years in the same school. He was married Jan. 30, 1868, to Miss Clara E. Berry, daughter of Joshua C. Berry, of Wythe tp.; they have had 3 children, 2 of whom are living; viz., Frank B. and Marietta A. Mr. Horney is also a practical surveyor.
