I am interested in any information about the family of Thomas Van Horn, who with his wife Hannah (Whitman) and son, Nicholas (b. 1834 in OH) came to Wells Co (before 1836 when my ancestor Nelson Van Horn was born). I know that most of the family left Wells Co. for Polk Co., IA but I am not sure when they left. I suspect that Nicholas remained in Wells Co on the family farm because I have not been able to find him in IA. I would very much appreciate any information about Nicholas and his family. Nelson and his family moved to Polk Co. in 1863 where they remained. In 1850 there were two Van Horn families: my Thomas and a John. I am not sure if they are related and would be very interested in any information about John's family.
Thank you for your help. pam Wagner
