>From Book on Lee Co VA at LDS Library Salt Lake City - copied July 2004 :
The Houston (Huston) family came from England and made a settlement in
Pennsylvania. Three Hustons served as privates from PA in the American
Revolution and were in the "Battle of King's Mountain". They were : James ,
John and William. These and other Houstons. Robert, Samuel and William
McDowell Houston were all found in Washington Co, VA records after the
Revolution years. Only the family of William Huston will be given in this
William Huston fought in the "Battle of King's Mountain". He was born in
PA; he died in Lee Co VA , ante 22 April 1819; married in PA Nov 1, 1775,
Mary BURK ( marriage record from PA ). He paid both personal and land tax
in Lee Co VA in 1796.
Children of William and Mary Houston were: Sarah and Mary HOUSTON
Sarah HOUSTON , born ca 1782 , died ante nov 1820. Married
Charles C CARTER, Lee Co's first County Court Clerk ( See Charles
CARTER family ).
Mary HOUSTON ,born 1778 ; died 1842 ; married ca 1799 ,

My quest is for the area of PA in which William HUSTON lived and was
married before he reached VA.

Hello Geni Friends,
>From my information on HOUSTON/HUSTON From the Evans' book "History of
Scioto County (OH) Pioneer Sketches" pages 739-740
"WILLIAM HUSTON, one of the pioneers of Portsmouth (Scioto County, OH) was
one of the first settlers of this town site. He came to Portsmouth from
Virginia, with his father WILLIAM HUSTON, from
Frederick County, Virginia. He and his brother JOSEPH were located at
Portsmouth, but WILLIAM HUSTON, their father went to Piqua and resided
his death in 1822.
"WILLIAM HUSTON'S wife name was SUSANNAH BOYD, born in Maryland. She
with her husband to Ohio in 1802. They erected a pole cabin, the fourth on
the site of Portsmouth.
Captain SAMUEL HUSTON, Sr.., was born at Winchester, VA., on Sept. 2, 1801.
His father WILLIAM HUSTON, was one of the pioneers of Portsmouth and
to Wayne township in 1802. When the township was organized in 1809. he
(WILLIAM) was one of the trustees. In 1823 he married ELIZABETH LEONARD,
ADAM LEONARD" the couple had 14 children.
Perhaps your WILLIAM HOUSTON/HUSTON may be related here somewhere?
