Facts and Events
John Houston was one of the Early Settlers of Augusta County, Virginia
From Chalkley's Augusta County Records:
Note: the following record can be used to reconstruct much of John Houston's family:
- Vol. 2 - Huston vs. Huston--O. S. 266; N. S. 93--Bill, 1817. Complainants are, viz: Stephen Huston and as administrator of Nathan Huston, deceased; Mary Ann Huston, widow and administratrix of John Huston; Patty Huston, widow and administratrix of Archibald Huston, who was son of John Huston, deceased; Polly Huston, daughter of Archibald Huston; Walter Huston, son of John; Peter Eyler, administrator of Joseph Huston, one of sons of John Huston; Polly Huston, widow of Joseph Huston; Jenetta Huston, daughter of Joseph; Julius Foster and Patsy, his wife; Joseph Mahoy and Grizzy, his wife (Patsy and Grizzy being daughters of John); Polly and Sophia Huston, daughters of John; Nathan, Cynthia, Jane, George, David Huston, infant children of John; and George Huston. Previous to 1792, John Huston, deceased, and his brother, Archibald, owned 3 tracts in Rockingham, about 300 acres on Mill Creek. John Huston's title was derived to him by being eldest son and heir, and he agreed with Archibald that they should sell the land and divide with their brothers, Stephen, George and Nathaniel (?). They were sons of Archibald Huston who died, testate, leaving part of the land to his son James, who died 1774 under age.
