About the Harner surname

In the United States, the Harner name is apparently an Americanized version of the German surname Hörner. Some theorize that most Harners in the United States can trace their roots to Johann Heinrich Hörner (b. 10 Jul 1709, d. 18 Jul 1785) and Anna Maria Moock (b. 1711, d. 26 Nov 1784), who immigrated to America from Germany with their family in 1750. Johann was the son of Hanss Gall Hörner (b. 19 Nov 1665, d. 14 Apr 1724) and Juliana Margaretha Kurtz (b. 20 Jan 1665, d. 24 Nov 1737). Hanss Gall was the son of Hanss Ludwig Hörner and Anna Apollonia Kehrt. Hanss Ludwig was the son of Hanss Hörner (b. about 1620).
