General Notes: Husband - Hiram T. Houghton
His father died when he (Hiram) was fourteen years old, leaving his mother a widow with six children, of which he was the oldest. At the age of twenty years, with the family of Thomas Farnsworth (his uncle), he settled in Cherry Grove, formerly a part of Sheffield, Warren County, Pennsylvania, where he cleared a piece of land and built a house for his widowed mother, who came about one year after. He stayed until 1842, when he settled on the Tionesta Creek, in Sheffield township. He went to Van Buren County, Michigan, in 1844, and remained there for three years, when he returned with his family to make a visit and sell his lands-between three and four hundred acres-which he had acquired in earlier years. But not being able to dispose of them satisfactorily he then remained in Sheffield. He served with credit in the Civil War for three years, in Company H, Tenth Regiment P. R. V. C.
By occupation he was a carpenter. Before the Civil War he was a Democrat, but afterward he affiliated with the Republican party.
