Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Thomas E Houston {Gen 4}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Thomas E Houston (Gabriel Houston, Sarah, James, William) was born in Glenwood, New Jersey October 5th 1827, to parents Gabriel Houston and Susan Ann Owen.

Thomas married Armintia Treadwell Fleet (1831-1907) on June 10th 1856 in either New York City or Brooklyn, New York.

The couple had one child:

  • Clara Fleet Houston b. 9 May 1861 d. 14 Jun 1943 never married

Thomas' life was cut short just one year after his daughter was born. He died in Yonkers, New York on June 17th 1862 at the age of 37. I have not found a cause of death or why he was in Yonkers at the time.

Armintia Treadwell Fleet Houston went on to marry the widower George Baxter about 1868/69. She became stepmother to George's six children, but never had another natural child.

Thomas E Houston is buried in the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, Kings Co, New York. His wife Armintia T Fleet Houston Baxter and daughter Clara F Houston Baxter are buried there as well.
