The Horton Family of record showed up in Miller County, in the form of Isaac & Abby Horton. They had a large family which were the ancesters of the Hortons descsndants in Miller County today. They show up in the 1860 census with all their children born in Virginia. The youngest one year old. This tells me they have not been here long. They seem to loved that Auglaize River country and never went to far from it.
