Is our subject's son, John, really the one who married Hannah, as it says in the LDS Ancestral File?  Because in the 1860 census, John's wife appears to be named Louisa.  I couldn't find a marriage between a John and Louisa, but if his name was badly misspelled or misread, I could have missed it.

John should be 29, not 21, and I would have guessed that Louisa is his wife.  Is her name enumerator error?  Elizabeth must be the junior William's wife, and George W. HORTON is probably Elizabeth's brother.
