Notes

Shared Note


"On April 22, 1889 ‎[Stephen and Rosetta Horn]‎ were at the "starting line" on the edge of the "Cherokee Strip", new lands being opened for homestead in the new state of Oklahoma ‎(the Cherokee Indian Territory)‎. ... The race lasted many hours and miles and miles before Stephen drove in his stake on a quarter section, between the Cimmaron River and where the city of Enid now stands. ... For the house they dug a hole in the prairie about two feet deep, then covered the floor with stone, and built stone walls five feet high. The roof was of poles and sod, grass side up. The window openings were covered
first with flour sacking, and later with glass. John was born in the dug out cellar in 1890 and Inis was born in the sod house in 1899." -- Horn, Shafer Family Book, 2004

"The children went to school at Enid, with Louis attending agricultural College there. Stephen never got on too well with the rest of the Terrels, who were also homesteading nearby. This eventually led to some shooting,
and in 1905 or 1906 Stephen loaded the wagons and headed north again. They traveled north across Kansas and the Dakotas, as far as Fargo, North Dakota, where they loaded outfits onto an "immigrant train" bound for Winnipeg and west. They off-loaded near Regina, SK. And took up homesteading near Craik. With the help of sons Louis and John, now eighteen and sixteen, the family "proved-up" on three-quarter sections. In 1909, Grace married Jesse Anderson, a young traveling homesteader from Illinois. Louis married Ruth Williams in 1912. The family's fortunes improved until 1912, when Stephen, Louis, John, and Jesse seeded over 400 acres of wheat with horses. Later that year young John was in a poker game that got out of hand and the farms were sold to pay his debt.

"In 1912 the families were on the move again. Stephen bought land from C.P.R. at Tudor, next to the Schafers. Louis and Ruth went to Montana, where Louis, a stern young man like his father, was sheriff of the frontier
town of Plentywood from 1912 to 1917. Grace and Jesse went to the mining town of Butte, Montana. John went loggng in Washington. In 1916 Grace and Jesse went to Tudor and started a general store. Louis and Ruth and John arrived in Tudor in 1918. The Horn, Schafer and Anderson families all lived and farmed around Tudor through the 1920's. Most of the Horn, Schafer, Anderson and Kaughman children were born there." -- Horn, Shafer Family Book, 2004

"John was best described as a free spirit and a bit of a recluse, who wanted his own way and eventually got it.

"He was a very good father and even though he was very quiet most of the time he would talk to his children one on one.

"He loved being in the bush and often said that his church was in the "wild wood" and when asked what his thoughts on salvation and eternity were, he would say "if I was saved once I was saved thirty times" and "What else is there to believe except the Bible"

"Helen grew up in lllinois. She was the vociferous one of the family and also the public figure. She did the buying and selling, paying of the bills, talking with or meeting people or anything else that needed doing. She enjoyed talking and visiting with people.

"She was a good mother who was determined to keep the family close as a family and what she taught their children has stayed with them and still feel that family is the most important part of ones life.

"While living in Kelowna B.C. Helen had an operation where they gave her a pace-maker. It made a tremendous difference. She had energy that she had not had for a lot of years, and she looked so vibrant and healthy. John and Helen bought ranch up from Summerland B.C, where they lived for many years.

"As they got into their senior years they returned to Kelowna and it is here where John died. Helen lived on in Kelowna although she traveled a lot mainly from one of her children's home to the other. In May or June 1983 she suffered two heart attacks. She was so determined to attend the first reunion in August 1984 that she made a remarkable recovery. Helen had a bad stroke in the afternoon of Nov 4, 1986 and died Nov. 7, 1986. She and a 88 year old lady friend had been out touring Kelowna the week before." -- Horn, Shafer Family Book, 2004
