My mother's maiden name was Houk... Virginia Nannie Noble, nee Houk. The family was from the Ellwood City, PA area. My grandfather's name was Willis Edgar Houk. He died in the mid-late 1920's. First wife was Minnie Fox. His parents were Elijah Houk of Newcastle/Elwood City area of PA, he married Lydia Houk who had married twice, both marriages to Houks. Any information on this line would be greatly appreciated.

My information only goes back to Elijah Houk and Lydia Houk, my GGrandparents. Don't have anything else about them yet, their families or their siblings. I believe Lydia was married twice, both times to men named Houk. My Grandfather was Willis Edgar Houk, married to Minnie Estelle Fox. My mother, Virginia Nannie Noble (nee Houk) was born December 13, 1909. Hope this helps. I'm trying to check Census records, and emmigration records, to find Elijah.

I just finished reading your posting. I have been tracing my Houk line from Iowa, through Ohio and now into PA. I was struck by the similarity of names in your message to those I am researching. My facts say that Jacob Houk married Polly Conner in PA in 1806, they had 9 children: Rebecca, William, Phillip, Mary, John, Cornelius, Matilda, David and Jacob. William is my g-g-g-grandfather. I know that certain naming conventions existed and it may just be grasping at straws, but I was wondering if there might be a connection between my Houk line and yours that you would recognize. This Houk family moved to Scioto Co, OH in 1819 and then to Pike Co., OH in 1825. Any responses would be greatly appreciated. Good luck to you! -- Jim Houk
