Welcome to a Kevin Duerinck Genealogy Page
--Huston Family of Pennsylvania (1799)>Ohio>Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana

Created: 19 July 2003, last revised 31 May 2011 thanks to Jason Bell (thanks previously to Robin Huston-Wesley, Rylla Huston and Pam Huston Cunningham; also Jan Streiff, Nancy "Pf", Vickie Van Blarcom, Terri Nelson Scott and Verbsky family) and January 8, 2006 (added a link for Alexander Huston's family and a web page with this information). Thank you to Chris McCollough, Renae Huston Rosscup, Betty Eastman, and Christopher Lye for research done. Thank you also to Jim Houston of Forth Worth, Texas, for his vision and research into the medieval Houston family in Scotland, whether or not we are related.

Scope: To increase the knowledge of my wife's paternal family, Huston. I have added federal census information at the bottom of this page, as well as tons of books on Huston/Houston, and don't forget to check out other tools, such as the CDs links at the bottom. For rumors linking these families to Clan Donald, please see "Links". Apparently the Huston/Houston family was Scotch-Irish, and one family from Dublin, Ireland (goes back to 1450), with 2 brothers (Alfred Houseson "Houston" and Abner Houseson "Huston"), came over from Scotland to Jamestown, Virginia in 1612 and 1616, respectively. This Houseson family moved to Kentucky. There was also the family from Cotreoch Manor, Whithorn Parish, Wigtownshire, Scotland, tracing its lineage back to 1500 in Scotland. The 2 immigrant brothers emigrated to the USA about 1710 (Anthony Houston and brother William Houston), to Delaware (Kent or New Castle County). Another family, the Kilbarchan, Scotland Houston family, was from a small settlement near the Cotreoch families, connection still being researched. Another wave of families from Londonderry, Northern Ireland, came over in 1850 and settled in Pittsburgh, Alleghany County, Pennsylvania (see "Links" below). There certainly were other Houston families coming to America, such as the Kilbarchan, Scotland Houston families; the County Tyrone, Ireland Houston family arriving in South Carolina, movement into Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, etc.

NOTE: could 1799 John Huston be from Dickinson Township (or another township), Cumberland County, Pennsylvania? If yes, then the book "History of the Huston families and their descendants 1450-1912; with an genealogical record", by E. Rankin Huston might have some information. On David Beckwith's web site, where he extracted information from the book, there is an index of all the Huston names in his GEDCOM in the 1700's and 1800's: Huston's by David Beckwith . See also: Huston's by Gail Barham


ALEXANDER HUSTON: See the Alexander Huston family (courtesy of ancestral files at, on this web site, at this link: Alexander Huston Family of Pennsylvania. You will see that Alexander Huston or Alexander Houston was NOT the father of John Huston, but possibly the grandfather of John (b.1799). The below Alexander Huston did marry Mary Ann Johnson. The theory has it that Alexander and Mary Ann had 16 children, one of which was John Huston (b.1799, Pennsylvania). That theory is wrong as we see John (b.1799) would possibly have been a grandchild of Alexander and Mary Ann. The theory also says that Alexander Huston's parents were Andrew Huston Jr and Rachel Huston; and the father of Andrew Huston Jr was Andrew Houston, and mom was Elizabeth ___. We still need to verify this information that some kind soul put up on family trees [Note that 17 individuals put up trees re a John Huston of Ohio, born 1787--they are all a jumble. One individual combined children of 2 different families from the 1850 census of 2 different counties, Richland Co. and Columbiana Co. Abigail Huston is not from the same family as Hiram and Levi Huston. Abigail's dad is Thomas b.1811 Ohio, mom Mary b.1810 Penn., and Hiram and Levi's dad is John b.1799 Penn., mother Mary b.1804 Penn.]. In the 1873 Plat Book for Bloomingrove Twp., Richland Co. Ohio, there is an Alex Huston in the farm index. He owned what appears to have been 133 acres of land in sections 4 and 5. 1873 Plat Book Bloomingrove Twp. Source: ATLAS MAP OF RICHLAND COUNTY, OHIO. Compiled, Drawn & Published from Personal Graminations & Surveys by A.T. Andreas. Chicago, Ill., 1873, p. 13

JOHN HUSTON (see "On the Trail of John Huston" research notes), born April 26, 1799 somewhere in Pennsylvania. We definitely know that he married Mary who was born approx 1804 in Pennsylvania, but what her surname is, I have heard Mary Taylor and Mary Hersh (or Mary Harsh, but I believe Mary Hersh or Hersch was the wife in a different family), the latter being born December 5, 1805 somewhere in Pennsylvania, that they were married on May 25, 1824. I need to see the birth record of Hiram Huston. "They" were in Mansfield, Richland County, Ohio for the birth of their son Hiram HUSTON, born April 25, 1846. Note: The ONLY record of John is an 1850 census, Richland Co., Ohio, Butler Twp: 1850 Census Index for Richland County, Ohio John Huston is page 249A of the official census. (be careful, there are many John Huston’s in Richland Co., Ohio and even two in Butler township. There is no John Huston or Houston in the census index to the Bloomingrove township, Richland Co. Ohio, but there is a Kersey Huston.). Anyway, John and Mary had 11 children:

1. Rebecca HUSTON born 4 APR 1825
1.1. Note: another researcher states that there was an Abigail born to John and Mary--this is not true of this family. There was an Abigail born to Thomas and Mary Huston (see 1850 census, Centre, Columbiana Co., Ohio).

In 1868 Cersey remarried to Mrs. Evaline Chilton in Williams County, Ohio. The 1870 census is the the last I find of Cersey and the children, Evaline is a widow in 1880. Note from Kevin 1-27-2007: Looking at the original image of the 1870 federal census for Florence, Williams County, Ohio, it shows her name as "Emiline". A misspelling by the census taker?

He was buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Silvercreek Township, Cass County, Michigan. He married Mary Albertson, who was born October 20, 1866, died Jan 18, 1931. Note: rumor that maybe Hiram Huston first married Nancy J. Deck on Dec. 1, 1867.

Hiram had 7 children with Mary Albertson:
1. Clyde Huston, b. Indiana Dec 2, 1879 (WWI draft registration card says Dec 2, 1878), d. May 27, 1947; married Jessie May Reynolds (born Michigan ~1885) according to the 1920 census for Michigan, Cass County, Silver Creek Township, E.D. 139. No children listed. The Social Security Death Index has Jessie Huston (her married name) of Dowagiac, Michigan as being born April 15, 1881, died March 1973 in Dowagiac, Michigan. She was married at least twice, her second husband being Clyde Huston. Jessie's first marriage, according to the 1900 census for Cass County, Silver Creek Township, Michigan, was for 4 years, (1896) to Lowell Reed (born Oct. 1879 in Iowa). Lowell was a moulder. They had 2 children. The son, Forest Reed, was born January 1897 and was 3 years old at census time. The daughter, Mabel Reed, was born October 1899 and was thus 1 year old at census time. Records went cold for a time these two children according to the researcher Lynn Jackson. She picked up their trace again in the 1920 federal census, finding Forest Reed "in Berrien Michigan as a roomer, working in a foundry. Same birth year 1897. In 1930, I found him in Toledo Lucas Ohio, District 94, 844 Central Avenue. Same birth year, father born in Iowa, mom Michigan, etc. Forest Reed was a restaurant proprietor, if I read the handwriting correctly. Forest Reed was 33 and married to Mary, age 30 and had a son, it says "Foster Jr.", but it must be Forest Jr. I think I found a lead on Mabel too. Michigan Deaths, 1971-1996: Mabel F. Hayes born October 15, 1899. Death Date: March 3, 1990. Resided in Cassopolis Cass Michigan, died in Dowagiac, Cass Michigan. Lived in Ohio before 1951 according to the SSDI."
According to the Michigan Death Records, Jessie Reynolds Huston died March 18, 1973 in Dowagiac, Michigan--Death Certificate #15216. Her parents were Albert Reynolds and Emma D. Whitmore--they are listed in the Federal Census, June 25 1880 living in the Village of Cassopolis, Michigan. Albert was a 29 year old house painter and Emma was a 16 year old housekeeper.

Houstoune (Houston) family in Scotland in medieval times [messages between Jim Houston and Jim __ on, the Scotland Board (Medieval History), Feb. 2003]:
Three sources of information on this family. George Way of Plean and Romilly Squire, ?The Scottish Clan & Family Encyclopedia? (HarperCollins, 1994) lists this family on pp. 405-06 as a territorial name from an old barony of the same name in Lanarkshire. Hugh de Padinan is apparently the progenitor and was granted the lands of Kilpeter in the 1100s, later known as Huston. The article mentions a few notable individuals in the family, but no detailed genealogy is offered. Sir Bernard Burke, ?Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Landed Gentry of Great Britain & Ireland,? Volumes I & II (Harison, Pall Mall; 1882) has three Houston families listed in Volume I; Houston of Orngefield, Houston of Johnstone Castle, and Houston of Clerkington. The Johnstone Castle family seems to be the same as is listed in the Clan & Family Encyclopedia. ?The Scots Peerage, Founded on Wood's Edition of Sir Robert Douglas's Peerage of Scotland,? edited by Sir James Balfour Paul, Lord Lyon King of Arms (Edinburgh: David Douglas, 1904-1914), contains several members of this family.

Notes from Eileen Buchanan:
"Houston is derived from Hu's town, named after the 11th century Hugo De Padvinan, Knight Templar who built his castle there- some say he was named after Hugh De Payens, leader of the Knights Templar, others that he was the same man!" For more from Eileen, including the 600 year old yew grove at Craigends, Houston in Renfrewshire, Scotland (and the cool-looking Craigends House), see her site at: Eileen Buchanan and Scottish surname Houston . According to Eileen, there was a 16th century Houston Castle site, but it is gone.
