C. Frank Horn was born on April 19, 1851, in Tamaqua, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. His full name was Charles Frank Horn, but he usually went by C. Frank Horn to distinguish his name from his father’s. His father, named Charles Horn, was a teamster born in Pennsylvania in 1800. C. Frank Horn’s mother, Matilda Horn, was born about 1820, also in Pennsylvania.

The first mention of C. Frank Horn is in the 1860 census. His father is given as Charles Horns (sic), age sixty, a teamster, with his family living in the North Ward Borough of Tamaqua, Pennsylvania, as of June 14, 1860. His mother is listed as Matilda Horn, age thirty-nine, with children Mary, nineteen, Susan, sixteen, and Charles, nine. All were born in Pennsylvania. Interestingly, another household member, possibly a boarder, is listed: Will Davis, age thirty-two, a professor of music. Perhaps having Davis in the house influenced young Charles to become a teacher and composer of music.

Horn composed some comic songs for George Thatcher of George Thatcher’s Minstrels in Philadelphia. Horn wrote many other songs, like “Miss Fogarty’s Christmas Cake,” “Miss Mulligan’s Homemade Pie,” “Grogan’s Grocery,” “The Band on Murphy’s Block,” and “McCarthy’s Fancy Ball” in an Irish dialect. Some others are “Duffy, the Rising Man,” “Mr. Finnegan,” “The Trials of Leap Year,” “The McGettigans’ Social Soiree,” and ”When McGinnes Drives Up to the Door.”

The name surname McGettigan is the Anglicised form of the name, “Mag Eiteagain” (Pronounced the same as my last name Magatagan). The name is of patronymic origin, that is, it belongs to the category of surnames derived from the first name of the father of the initial bearer. This indicates “son of Eiteagain” and is an ancient Gaelic personal name of unknown origin. This is a Tyrone surname and in medieval times was found with both the Mac and O prefix “O hEtigen”.

The Mag Eiteagain`s belong to the clan of O`Neill, Prince of Tyrone, Kings of Ulster and several times Monarchs of Ireland.

Although originally written for Piano & Voice, I created this arrangement for Flute and Acoustic Piano.
