This family moved to Simmerville
58 years before the TS2, and there are still descendants living in Simmerville.
The first Hornsbys
This family moved to Simmerville
58 years before the TS2 transmition. But the family can be traced even
124 years before TS2, Swan
Hornsby bought 4 Lobsterville (Rolley County, Mazaloom). The property was
cleared only since 30 years, and Swan kept pigs and grew lettuce. He married
Ballanna Ivvy, and they had only one son, Alvin. Both Swan Hornsby and
Ballanna Ivvy were born in the downtown area.
Alvin Hornsby married Loretta
Steephy, and they had a son and a daughter. Son, Swey Hornsby was heir
to 4 Lobsterville, but he is the one who introduced this family to Simmerville.
After 13 years of farming at 4 Lobsterville, Swey sold the house to his
younge sister Louanna, and moved to Simmerville with wife Claire (Hillhill)
and their only child Albert (3). This took place 58 years before TS2.
Lots and property
The Hornsby family was wealthy
but they never owned much land in Simmerville. Their small generations
allowed them to mainly reside 9 Simmerville, where they had one of the
largest houses of the hood.
Lots in Simmerville where
this family resided:
58 years before TS2, Swey
Hornsby bought 9 Simmerville from Josella Grumblin (7 Simmerville). The
former renter was Raolius Gobelin. The lot included major cabbage fields,
but Swey reduced the cabbage produce and started holding pigs like he used
to back in Lobsterville. The farm's total produce was 2/3 cabbage and 1/3
The farming success did not
last long. When Albert Hornsby inherited 9 Simmerville (38 years before
TS2) he kept producing cabbage and pigs but to a much smaller scale. The
total farming produce was only 8/50 of the household's total working efforts.
Albert did very well with finances and his wife Henny Gross from far-away
did well in business. When Swey and Claire could no longer work, there
was no farming activity left at 9 Simmerville.
A terrible car accident
Albert and Henny had 2 sons,
Sven and Ronny. They were one of Simmerville's wealthiest households. Everything
looked bright for the next generation. Then, only 8 years before TS2 something
terrible happened. Albert (53), Henny (50) and the boys Sven (22) and Ronny
(20) were driving their modern car when Albert had a heart attack and they
crashed with the school bus! All except the oldest son, Sven Hornsby, died.
The Hornsbys of today
The Hornsby family is currently
a very small family. The family in Simmerville seems to be the only one
because back in Lobsterville Louanna Hornsby married to Jacob Litton and
they took the Litton family name.
Back in TS1 Sven Hornsby
partnered with Carl Lobos, they adopted a son, Johnny CS Hornsby. Then
Carl Lobos was killed in the secret Alien Operation just before Simmerville
got back the 3rd dimension. Sven had a career in the Law Enforcement track,
then after TS2 he tried both Science and Medicine. 34 simdays after TS2
Sven Hornsby is still alive and resides the Hornsby residence's senior
Their old house at 9 Simmerville
was mostly rebuilt after TS2, and it's a very large house now at 6 New
Simmer Lane. Even though the Hornsby family seems to have had more than
their share of bad luck, the Hornsby household is still very wealthy. Johnny
CS Hornsby has married local Fedima (Beartop), and they have 3 children,
Susan (6), Charlow (3) and Shawn (1).
