Charles L. Fay
   
   
He was buried as Charles L. Fay
   
   
He was Charles L. Fay when he served in the Civil War and when he was granted a pension.
   
He was Charles L. Fay when his 17 children were born in Spencer, MA.
   
But when he died, the name of his father was given as "John Horne" --
   
and he was born Lewis Marshall Horn --
   
and he was married - the first time - as Lewis M. Horn --
(a marriage he does not mention in his civil war pension questionnaire)
   
and he had his first child as Lewis Marshall Horn, and perhaps his second
This child is registered as "Lewis Marshall," but he was called "Charles M." in the census of 1850, and is buried as "Charles M. Horn" in the cemetery at Southborough. There he lies beside Anson H. Horn, died age 9 months, also a child of Julia. I think they probably died at the same time. Anson's birth does not seem to be recorded.
   
The connection between Charles L. Fay and Lewis Marshall Horn was made on the basis of his death certificate and the civil war pension records for him and his wife. The line has been thoroughly researched and documented by one of his descendants, Marjorie P. Dudley Locke. Not all of her material is posted here, but much is. To make it easier to move through this section, the following directory should be of help.
