HORN(e) FAMILY



JACOB HORN was a German who came to Canada and fought under General Wolf at Quebec in 1759. After the capture of that place he came to Halifax. It is said that he came from Quebec on snowshoes which is not improbable for many others at that time did the same.

After the close of the war between France and England grants of land were given to discharged soldiers. Mr.Horn was given a choice between McNab's Island and a large grant on the eastern mainland. He chose the island at first and built a house there. He found it inconvenient,however,to take cattle and produce from it to the city, so he gave up his grant and removed to Eastern Passage. His first grant at that place was the 220 acres which had been granted to Hon.Joseph Gorham, July 20,1752. This land was escheated August 24,1797 and granted to Jacob Horn and his Jacob November 1st the following year. Mr.Horn afterwards came into possession of the land formerly granted to Otho Hamilton and Hon. John Collier. His propoerty extended down to the farthest bound of the R.C. cemetery, which he presented to the Catholics. Jacob Horn prospered at Eastern Passage. Cordwood and cattle were in great demand at Halifax and he found it easy to take both to the city, for in those days the harbour was frozen over almost every winter.

Jacob Horn has been described to me as a small man with light hair hanging over his shoulders. He married a French woman from Quebec. She could not speak English at first, but would pat the heads of the children when they spoke to her.

Jacob Horn, Sr., left five sons: Jacob, John, Andrew, Benjamin and George. He, himself and several of his sons rest in the Horn graveyard on the lower side of the road. His wife also is buried there. Jacob Horn,Sr. died at the age of 101 years in 1821. I need scarcely mention that those Horn's now living at the Passage are decendants of Jacob Horn,Sr.
