Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Henry Owen Houston {Gen 4}

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

Henry Owen Houston (Gabriel Houston, Sarah, James, William) was born in Glenwood, New Jersey May 10th 1834, to parents Gabriel Houston and Susan Ann Owen.

Henry married Harriet Hindes about 1862 in either New Jersey or New York.

The couple had at least two children:
  • Walter Burchard Houston b. 5 Sep 1863 d. 3 Apr 1890 never married
  • Eloise Houston b. 30 Oct 1868 d. 28 Jan 1963 m. James Oliver Clark

Not much is known about Henry Houston other than he was a bookkeeper in Rahway, New Jersey. Henry died August 5th 1894 at the age of 60. His son Walter preceding him in death.

Harriet Hindes Houston lived 6 more years, attending the wedding of her daughter in 1899. Harriet died March 8th 1900, four days after her 64th birthday.

The Houston's are buried in Hazel Wood Cemetery in Rahway, New Jersey with their son Walter.
