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 genealogy 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. This website is mainly for descendants of Edward Howchens of Virginia. He is the ancestor of most Houchen(s)-Houchin(s) in the U.S. today. If you are in another descent line, please let me know as that could also be added to the website.

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'll be glad to add you to the website. The chances are that you are descended from Edward and Rebecca Howchens of Virginia, as most of the people with the family names of Houchen, Houchens, Houchin and Houchins in the US are in that line. Contact me at so that I can get you added to the website.

Ayo! David, we are on the right path my friend. John would be I think my great-great-great-grandfather. James and Sarah Richey Houchins sired Ira G., who in turn sired my dad, Herman (nmn). But it may be farther than that,eh? I am originally from the Toledo Oh area, currently living in Iowa.

I would like to invite you to participate in the Houchen(s)-Houchin(s) family website which I have on You need to have a password to access the site. If you will contact me at, I will arrange for a password for you. There is no charge to participate in the site.
