Huff/Hough Newsletter 

 

Volume 1, Number 5 - August 1, 1993

 

This issue might well be titled the "Granville Hough Special Edition". He recently sent a package of material, some published by him earlier and some are unpublished. I hope to eventually share all of them with you, but the following article is too good to wait. It was of particular interest, as I have spent some time reading the "Horn Papers" and had no idea of their background. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did.

 


The Horn Papers

(From the West VA Encyclopedia)

 

One of the most extraordinary hoaxes in the history of historical research, The Horn Papers, published in 1945, were purported to be source material for the early history of the Monongahela and upper Ohio Valleys. According to W. F. Horn, the Topeka, Kansas carpenter who apparently perpetrated the hoax for reasons of his own, the papers were based upon "various diaries and Virginia court records, maps, and other records handed down to the present day through the Horn family, descendants of Jacob Horn, who was one of the judges of the first Virginia courts in this region which in early days was part of Virginia." Jacob Horn was said to have been an associate of Christopher Gist, one of the early frontiersmen of western Virginia .

Horn's work first appeared in the Waynesburg, Pennsylvania Democrat Messenger, with the explanation that the original diaries no longer existed, but that he had made careful copies of the moth-eaten" and partly illegible documents. The newspaper articles spoke of historical events about which historians knew nothing; the Battle of Flint Top in which 12,000 lndians were killed, cities in Greene and Washington Counties Pennsylvania, which were more important than Pittsburgh, maps and descriptions of the "lost" cities of Razortown and Augusta Town, etc.

The work appeared so remarkable that a committee of the Greene County (Pennsylvania) Historical Society in Waynesburg arranged to publish the complete work in a three-volume set of books, one volume of which consisted of nothing but maps. The publication brought forth acclaim from historians. West Virginia historical expert Delf Norona who was later instrumental in exposing the work as a fraud, at first wrote to the author, "The Horn Papers have exceeded my expectations. It is a publication to which, as long as I am interested in pioneer history, I shall be referring to again and again. It is marvelous to see so much data collected and presented in the various studies, to say nothing about maps and illustrations. I am sure that from this time on practically every historical writer dealing with the Colonial and Revolutionary period of this area will find it necessary to draw on the material you have now made available."

A copy was received by Julian P. Boyd, librarian at Princeton University. He promptly labeled The Horn Papers "fabrications" and demanded that a committee of historians be convened to examine them for authenticity. The committee was appointed, under the auspices of the Institute of Early American History and Culture at Williamsburg, Virginia, and after a thorough investigation, its findings were published in the William and Mary Quarterly. The investigators reported that "nothing genuine could be found, in the entire publication". Among its findings, the committee said that Horn's transcript of the diaries was remarkably complete, having been copied from documents said to be partly illegible; that certain phrases were used which were unknown in the 18th century; that the Julian calendar was in use during that historical period, but the dates in Horn's work were from the Gregorian calendar of more modern times; that the court documents and maps carried 19th century watermarks and had been artificially "aged," probably with ammonia; and that the lead marker plates, supposedly placed by French explorers and dug up by Horn, were made of a type of lead which could not have been used in the 18th century. Horn never made any money from the fraud. In fact, after the papers were published and he became recognized as an authority on local history and genealogy, he refused to accept fees for the lectures he gave to historical societies and other groups.

Horn, who never commented on the verdict remained in silence in Kansas. To this day it is not known what his motives were in fabricating such an enormous mass of material which contained just enough historical truth to fool some of the most distinguished experts on Western American history for a time. Horn's fabrication has been compared to Chatterton's invention of poems by a non-existent monk of the 15th century and to Ireland's forgery of a play said to be by Shakespeare. Papers and magazines, especially Time, referred to the hoax as "The Great Hornswoggle."

 


The following is a fictitious Lineage based on The Horn Papers:

ABIGA AND CATHERINE HOUGH OF PA AND VA

(In 1945, W. F. Horn published Vol I of three Of "The Horn Papers - Early Westward Movement on the Monongahela and Upper Ohio, 1765-1795". This work had been commissioned by a committee of the Green County Historical Society, Waynesburg, PA. The work is interesting to read as it contains many anecdotes of the life and times of early pioneers of the area. When genealogists have tried to verify the biographical sketches and movements of the early settlers; they find supporting evidence in other works for some, but absolutely nothing for others. The conclusion among genealogists has been that Horn simply invented whatever it took to make an interesting story. The term "hornswoggle" has since been used to describe any genealogical work which purports to be factual but is not supported by any public or private records. With this background, it is noted that, thus far, there has been no record found for the existence of either Abiga HOUGH nor his son Martin HOUGH. If their name were actually HOUCK, HAUGH, HOUK, etc, they have not been investigated.)

Abiga HOUGH (1721 Philadelphia, PA Dec 1798 PA, bur in Horn Cem, Buffalo twp, Washington Co, PA) in 1756 in VA md Catherine BLACK ( ) and they settled in 1756 on Snow Creek in present day Franklin Co, VA. Their ch incl:

1. Elizabeth (1748 -17 Dec 1823, Knox Co, bur Mt Vernon, Knox Co, OH) c 1771 md Hardtman HORN (17 June 1747 - Oct. 1811, bur Horn Cem, Buffalo twp, Washington Co, PA), son of Jacob and Duschea (VAN NATTA) HORN, and lived in Franklin Co, VA, and Washington Co, PA. Ch incl Martin; Christian; Isaac; Catherine; Jacob; Elizabeth; Joseph; Mary Ann; and Benjamin.

2. Martin (6 Sep 1749 James River Flats, VA - 1808 Eastern VA) is said to have become interested in working with iron and made a Virginia rifle at the age of 16. In March 1772, he is said to have accompanied his father to Camp Cat Fish in Washington Co, PA. In 1778-80, he made rifles at Augusta Town, PA, from iron smelted at McCullough. He was a chainman in the survey of Greene Co, PA, when it was separated from Washington Co in 1796. He is said to have returned to Eastern VA and to have died there about 1808. No family nor ch have been proposed. (The only Martin HOUGH who has been found in records of that era died 1816 in Newberry Co, SC, leaving wife Margaret, but no ch. He seems to be an entirely different person.)

3. dau ( ) no info.

4. dau ( ) no info.

 

Abiga HOUGH is said to have gone to Baltimore in 1763, where he was engaged as an axman for the survey of the Mason and Dixon line from 1763 until 1767. In March, he and his son Martin went to Camp Cat Fish in Washington Co, PA. He helped John HORN build the Wallace Mill in 1791-92. He died in the home of his dau, Elizabeth (HOUGH) HORN and is said to be buried in an unmarked grave in the Horn Cem. of Buffalo Twp.

Hough lineage is Abiga and Catherine (Black) of PA and VA;

References for HoA&CB1, 17 May 1992: Vol I:530, W. F. Horn, The Horn Papers - Early Westward Movement on the Monongahela and Upper Ohio, 1765 - 1795.

(Additional Note by G. W. H.)

So far, I have spent considerable time for several people who believe the Horn Papers are authentic. There is some accurate information in them which has been verified, but every statement must be separately verified. I have never found an Abiga Hough nor a Martin Hough in VA or Southwest PA records. It is my conclusion that they are both fictitious. .....Granville W. Hough
