In this interview by Reverend Dickey, William M. Combs names several generations of his family and even names many of the female spouses with their maiden names.

The marriage of Matthias Horn to Susanna Hall.
The marriage of Matthias Horn to Susanna Hall.
It seems that the brothers, Matthias Horn and William Horn, both married women named Susanna or Susan.
There are many online family trees that give "Hall" as the maiden name of William Horn's wife; this is probably incorrect. As shown in these excerpts from the pension file (W10110) of Matthias Horn and Susanna Hall-Horn, the wife of Matthias had a maiden name of "Hall". Though not impossible (think cousins) it is unlikely that both wives were named Susan Hall.
