Van Horn, Theodore H., Lockport's leading druggist, was born at Newburgh, Orange county, N. Y., August 11, 1832. After attending the public schools he entered a drug store as a clerk and after four years' service removed to the West, where he remained for a few months, when he returned to Lockport and engaged in the drug business on his own account which he conducted for ten years. He at this date disposed of his drug business and engaged in the tanning and oil refining business, which he carried on for five years, when he again embarked in the drug business, since which time he has devoted his entire time and attention to that business. October 28, 1859, he married Loraine, daughter of David M. Mather of Lockport.
