    Fagan, David: HIstory of Benton County, Oregon
    HORNING, F. A.--this influential and wealthy farmer and early resident of Benton county, is one of those who came to this state with small means, but through industry and correct business principle, has accumulated a fortune sufficient to retire from the active pursuits of agriculture. Mr.HORNING was born near Berlin, Prussia, in 1824. When he was 9 years of age his parents, with their family of 8 children, emigrated to America, locating in St. Clair county, Illinois, and 5 years later moved to Jackson county, Missouri. On 12 May 1850, our subject with his wife and 1 child, started with ox teams to cross the plains to California, but on the plains they were induced to change their route on account of the scarcity of feed for their stock, and consequently came on to Oregon, arriving at Oregon City 26 October 1850. In December of the same year Mr. HORNING came to Benton county, and purchased his present valuable farm, consisting of 274 acres, one mile and a half west of Corvallis, where he is largely engaged in fruit farming. The incidents that have come under Mr. HORNING'S observation, and in some of which he took a part, would not be least among the mass that constitute the advance guard of civilization west of the Rockies. There are hundreds, yes thousands, of similar experiences, varying only in the kind of danger or misfortune that hovered along their trail. With one it was sickness, and another poverty, while a third met starvation or the Indian onslaught, and a record of them in full would make another Alexandrian library. Does not a pioneer deserve all the benefits that fortune has dealt out to him, and in many cases, much that the fickle goddess has withheld? In connection with his home farm he owns residence property in the city of Corvallis. Mr. HORNING was married in Jackson county, Missouri, to Miss Mary A. JOHNSON. She died 22 May 1868, leaving a family of 11 children, all of whom are living. A view of the place where Mr. HORNING resides is placed among the illustrations of this work.
