  • Name James HORTON  [1
    • He was an office-bearer in the church at Southold from his majority to the close of his life --a strong pillar of the church, eminent for his piety and sound Christian character. He was universally known as "Dea. James," and greatly respected. It is said that he often accompanied the Rev. Mr. Whitefield, and took an active part in his public meetings.

      Jonathan Glodsmith Horton, as quoted by Stuart T. Terry, says of him in his epitaph:

      "Intombed beneath this ponderous load
      Lies the man who loved and feared the Lord.
      A husband dear, a father ever kind,
      To the poor a close and constant friend:
      Sober, blameless, to charity inclined.
      Meriting well of all he left behind." [1]
