I have prepared a Houchens-Houchins website on I am now sending out invitations to participants for the website. You have to be listed to get access to it. If you are interested in being able to access the website, send me a reply. There is no cost associted with it as this website uses advertising and sale of various items. If you are listed as a member, your e-mail address would be listed but only visible to those with access to the site. I am only contacting people who are in the descent line from Edward Howchens of Virginia.

I have already put in my database of descendants of Edward of Virginia and have several other items in the website. As a person with access, you can put in pictures, files, historical information, other descent lines, etc. This gives all of us a place to share information with others in the Houchen(s)-Houchin(s) line.

>Let me know and I will submit your name for access.

I am looking specifically at Edward and Nancy Clements Houchins who settled in Mercer Co., KY around 1822. I am trying to link the family of Hugh Hall Houchins. He is my mother-in-law's grandfather. She has little information on her family as her father died when she was very young and her mother is now deceased also. Hugh Houchins was believed to be born in Mercer County, KY..

I have Edward Houchens and his wife Nancy Clements in my database. What I show is Edward, b. Feb. 29, 1760 in Goochland Co., Virginia, d. Feb. 14, 1846 in Mercer Co., Kentucky. Married Nancy Clements on Oct. 27, 1785. She was born in 1762 in Goochland, VA. I have nothing in my database on Hugh Hall Houchins. I also checked on the site and did not find anything.

His father was Thomas Oliver Houchins, Born near Richmond, VA 1803 and died in 1841 in Mercer County, KY near Harrodsburg. Samuel's grandfather was Edward Houchins, the person you are looking for, Born in Goochlandd Co., 1760-1846. Married Nancy Clements (1766-1849)in 1785 and the family moved to KY in 1822, bought land 2 miles south of Harrodsburg, Mercer Co. He and Nancy were burried in Terhune Cemetery, just outside of Harrodsburg.
