Facts and Events
She came from Ireland with her father, John Houston, the progenitor of us all...when about eleven years of age, and before the removal of the family from Pennsylvania, where they first settled, to Virginia, she was married to John Montgomery.
Elsewhere, Houston, 1882 places the arrival of the family in Pennsylvania as in 1735. Land records show them in Augusta County by c1740, which would mean that Esther's marriage to John Montgomery occurred between 1735 and 1740. Source:Schantz, 1896 identifies a marriage in Lancaster County, Earl Township, PA, between an Esther Heuston and a John Mountgomery on 2 July 1738. It seems likely that this marriage is in fact for the daughter of John Houston (15).
