John Huston from Illinois

John Huston from Illinois

Posted: 1369324637000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Huston, Lewis
I have only been able to trace Huston side of my family (my mom's family) back to 1872 in Mason County, IL.And I hit a wall at John Huston born abt. 1850 in IL. He married Lucy (Lucinda) Lewis in Havana in June of 1872. They had one son (my grt. grandfather) born 7 Feb 1873 in Illinois. In late 1873 Lucy was married to Israel Wise and they left IL for Nebraska where they had 4 children. She died in IL abt 1922. Would appreciate any help I can get. I have been stuck here for a couple of years. All the older family members are gone so I can't get any info from them. All my grandma would ever say is that the Huston's were a bunch of outlaws and might have been related to Jesse James.

Thank you for the info. I already had this info in my files but I appreciate the response. What I'm looking for is any info I can find on William Levi Huston's father. He was born abt. 1850 but not sure where. Could have been Illinois, Missouri, Kansas or Nebraska. We believe that his name was John Huston (Houston, Hurston or Hurton). He married Lucy Lewis in Havanna, IL in June of 1872. By the middle of !873 Lucy Lewis was remarried to Israel Wise and they left for Nebraska. So I am bloccked from 1872 back. Cannot find anything on John Huston before this.

There is a Kentucky death record for John Huston on 31 Mar 1873 in Louisville, KY. If Lucy remarried because John died, this is a possibility.

John married Lucy in Havana, IL which is in Mason County so possibly there are other Hustons in this location that could lead to something new.

On the marriage record for John and Lucy, it says that he is John D. Huston. There is a Civil War pension record for a John D. Huston in Illinois - maybe a lead to pursue. If not, maybe look at other Civil War pension records since he could have served in the Civil War.
