Leah – re Edmund Horton

I don’t see an Edmund in the books I have but there are a number of Horton names (36). There are Ederald, Edward, Ernest and  Everett first names starting with an E in the names that include descendants.

Lorine, I know Issac Van Valkenburg was a Butler's Ranger and this surname morphed to Vollick but would you have any info on Isaac's parents who may have been Isaac VanValkenburgh and Jannetje Clement who lived on the Susquehanna River in PA and then lived in New York?
