Here is the literal entry into the marriage register in Germany.
MARRIAGE REGISTER KREUZWERTHEIM 1722:
Feb 17, 1722: Christoph Horn, son of the former Niclauss Horn,
inhabitant of Aichel (old spelling for "Eichel") and the virgin Anna
Catarina, daughter of Peter Schneider, teacher in Kreuzwertheim)
The children of this marriage, all born in Eichel, are registered as
follows in the baptismal register at Wertheim:
1. Catarina Barbara b. Feb 2, 1723
2. Margaretha b. Feb 25, 1725 (buried Sept 6,1725)
3. Sebastian b. June 18, 1726 (married Feb 8,1752)
(emigrated as "Sebastian Hore" with his wife and his parents
on Sept 24, 1753 in the ship Neptune)
4. Anna MARGARETHA b. Mar 5, 1729
5. Philipp Jacob b. Apr 18, 1732
6. Johann VALENTIN b. Dec 13, 1734

8. Ferdinand b. July 9, 1740
9. EVA Barbara b. Apr 26, 1743
10. Johann STEPHAN b. July 10, 1745
I suppose that the 8th child, Ferdinand died soon after birth.
But already we have a total identification of the 5 children mentioned
in the emigration petition, whereas MARGARETHA and VALENTINE, who were
at the time of the emigration in 1752 over or almost 18 years of age,
seemed to have stayed on for awhile..."

Notes for DANIEL HORN:
"Daniel died in 1828 without a will and instead relied upon the normal
equal distribution of his estate to his children. By law, Susannah had
dower rights to the farm and apparently lived there for the rest of her
full life. Daniel asked his son Jacob and Jacob's father-in-law,
Benjamin Rutter, to witness his deathbed wish:
Daniel said, "...it was his will and intention that his two daughters,
Christena and Susannah should each of them have the following property,
viz, one young horse beast, a cow and a bed and that this property
should be taken out before the appraisers to make them equal to his
other childlren that he had given property to...."
"Susannah and son Jacob were the adminmistrators of the estate; after
the property was appraised, Susannah set aside her few needs, the
balance of the estate, excluding the farm land and buildings, was sold
"The widow was allowed to take with her those items deemed to be
necessary for her support and the support of the children, for one
year. The appraisers stated she could have items with a value up to
$165.56 and one-fourth cent; she also set aside other items at appriased
value, before the public auction.
"The sale was held May 27, 1828, a beautiful spring day [how do they
know?], but a very sad day for the family. In-laws and family were
there, along with neighbors. Everyone found something. Henry Lenhart
purchased a quilt, sheet and barrel of dried apples. Lenhart's
GGgranddaughter married Daniel Horn's GGgrandson, John Clark. These
families were all inerlocked together by religion and common needs..."
