There are lots of Horton's named: Charles, Henry, James and Martha by going to:  http://www.findagrave.com.  Go there and enter the Last name:  Horton, Cemetery in:  The United States, and the State:  Virginia.  This will bring up the listings of all the Horton's in the state of Virginia.  There are a bunch of them there that looked promising for the years you mentioned.  Hope this helps.  The next best way to locate people is by looking up marriages under the last name Horton.  Sounds strange but usually the less information you type in forms tend to bring up the best results.
