Joseph Horne, Henry James Horne, John F. Horne, Gail B. Horne, Robert C. Horne
The history of the Horne family starts with Joseph Horne pictured above. Joseph migrated to Utah by wagon train in 1847.
The Horne family has been in Arizona for over 140 years. Henry James Horne, the first of the Horne’s to settle in Arizona, moved to Mesa, Arizona on December 2, 1880. Henry was a landowner on the extension of Main Street on about 80 acres of property. You can gauge where the Horne family was established as you drive through Mesa even today. Keep your eyes peeled for Horne Road.
One of Henry Horne’s eleven children, John F. Horne, owned and operated a dairy farm near what is now Horne road and Main Street in Mesa.
Gail B. Horne, son of John F. Horne, earned his CPA’s license in 1951 and co-founded the Henry and Horne CPA Firm in 1957, Arizona’s largest independently owned accounting firm. Gail worked daily well into his 90’s before passing at the age of 97.
Robert C. Horne was a partner at Henry & Horne for 14 years. He learned from his father how to be an honest, ethical and hard-working American businessman. The Horne family instills these traits through the generations and works hard to deliver them to the great State of Arizona.
Later with his accounting background, Robert purchased a small Chevrolet dealership in Show Low, Arizona in 1991. From that small start Robert C. Horne and sons Aaron, Adam, Andrew, Michael and son-in-law Martin P. Jones, with the support of their families, have grown the business into the Horne Auto Group.
Horne Auto Group continues to grow today and works hard to instill the same traits of Honesty and Integrity through ethical business practices in each of their locations. We are grateful to the community that has trusted Horne Auto Group now and, in the future, to help with all your automotive needs.
