Can any of you Huston people help find my ancestor James HUSTON who lived in Augusta Co., Va. approximately 1750-1820. James and wife Nancy supposedly had 7 HUSTON daughters. If you can provide info. on any of these 7 daughters would be appreciated:1. Elizabeth HUSTON married Matthew KENNEY; 2. Euphemia HUSTON married Daniel MCDOWELL; Nancy HUSTON married Joseph MCDOWELL; Patience HUSTON married James KERR; Polly HUSTON married William MCCREERY; Sarah HUSTON married Robert BOGGS; Phebe HUSTON married Robert KENNEY. Can some one help. I hope so with all these names I have. Thanks, Bill Sharp Jw0813@aol.com
