 World War I

Harry Clyde Horton

(From Hortons in America, 1931) VI. HARRY CLYDE (10th Gen.) Horton, son of Horace Ibzan (9th Gen.) and Josephine (Boggs) Horton, b. June 16th, 1897; killed in action during the World War in the St. Mihiel Battle, September 12th, 1918; attended Clemson Agricultural College two years and was in the Junior Class at the University of South Carolina when, in 1917, he volunteered for service in the World War. He trained and received his commission at Ft. Oglethorpe, near Chattanooga, Tenn., as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Regular Army or a 1st Lieutenant in the Reserves. He chose the 2nd Lieutenancy in the Regular Army. He was at once assigned to the machine gun company of the 11th Infantry, whose history dates back to those last days of the 18th Century. Later he was transferred to the Regimental Intelligence Office,--the 11th Infantry was a part of the Fifth Division, Regular Army,--the Red Diamond (Meuse) Division. They saw continuous service from April, 1918, until the Armistice was signed.

         Harry Horton was killed in the battle of the St. Mihiel salient; is buried in one of our National Cemeteries in Thiacourt, France. The following is from a letter from Lieutenant-Colonel Herbert Parsons, assistant chief of staff:

         "Horace I. Horton:

"Your son, at the time of death, was then acting and, for some time, had been a battalion scout officer, and as I am head of the Intelligence Section of the General Staff of the Fifth Division I had come to know him well. He had rendered most splendid service as an Intelligence Officer and had proved of great assistance to his superiors, who have told me how deeply they lamented his death."
