    Individual Note Benjamin Franklin Horton, second son of George W. and Elizabeth (Horton) Horton, was born in New York City, December 25, 1815. He came with his parents to City Island during his early childhood years, and received his educational training at New Rochelle and Prospect Hill. Upon attaining to manhood years he learned the trade of a wheelwright at Westchester. He did not, however, pursue this line of trade very long, but took up the occupation of pilot on the waters of Long Island Sound. He had not been in this line of employment for any great length of time when he entered into the mercantile business on City Island, where he conducted one of the leading stores and where for a number of years he served as postmaster, having received his first appointment under President James K. Polk. He later again took up the occupation as pilot in the East River and Hell Gate, continuing in that line of pursuit until his death, which occurred March 20, 1867, resultant upon being capsized in his boat off Sands Point, near City Island. Captain Horton was a good and useful citizen, and during the many years of his residence on City Island had won the esteem and respect of his fellow citizens. He was a consistent member of the Baptist Church of City Island. He married, January 4, 1846, Delia A. Abbott, who was born February 23, 1825, daughter of Samuel K. and Mary Ann (Petit) Abbott; both the latter were natives of New York City.
