Deathbefore Apr, 1826Amwell, Hunterdon Co., NJ, USA, James Lowell Houghton: 1775
ProblemBill Stout raises significant doubt about this marriage to Mary, daughter of Thomas and Maria. Note birthdates of children.: I am a direct descendant of Abraham Stout and Alice Houghton of
New Jersey. Alice was the daughter of Thomas Houghton and Maria (Mary) Mershon. The data on your web site is great, but I would have to guestion the information on Alice's sister Mary Houghton (#1923). She did indeed marry a William Drake, but I'm not convinced that the children listed are those of William Drake and Mary Houghton. The main problem I have is that the youngest son, Amos S. Drake was
born on 16 Dec 1800. According to the data in this record, Mary Houghton died in 1775. If that is the case than she certainly didn't mother Amos S. Drake or Permelia Drake (my gg grandmother). Now even if we say that she didn't die then, she would have been 61-63 years old when Amos was born. That seems very unlikely. So one possible explanation would be that she wasn't born between 1737 and 1739, but
I have never seen anyone who says she was born later. As to when Mary died, look at the following:

Mary Drake
Apr 18, 1802
Catharine Drake (says nothing after name)
Catherine Houghton dismissed (could this be Mary's mother???)
Mary Drake dismissed
William Drake dismissed
This shows that a William and Mary Drake were dismissed from the church on Apr 18, 1802. This is about the time that my William and Mary Drake
left New Jersey and moved to New York state. So if this Mary Drake is our Mary Houghton, then she didn't die in 1775. BTW, the Catherine
Houghton mentioned as being dismissed was the wife of Joab Houghton, and we know that she left New Jersey for Kentucky to be with her childen
after her husband died (in 1798). We see William Drake and Mary Drake and Catherine Houghton together in these records. Your records show that
Col. Joab Houghton and Catharine Runyan had a daughter named Mary Houghton who was born in 1754. I'm wondering if this might be the Mary Drake in
this church record? She was certainly born at the correct time. We have nothing in the records as to what happened to her. What could also support
this is that my William Drake and Mary ???? had the following children: Katharine, Mary, Permelia, Aaron, Gideon, Susanna, Sarah, Else, Elizabeth,
Joab, Nathan, Francina, and Amos. The first born, Katharine would tend to indicate that Mary's mother could have been named Katharine (Catherine),
and they also had a son named Joab. Katharine was born abt 1775 which would make Mary about 21 then. So this Mary ties together much better that
the other Mary Houghton who did marry a William Drake, but likey a different one, or she died and William remarried the other Mary Houghton. Lots of
possible explanations, but not enough evidence to make a firm conclusion. There could have been two William Drakes.
Thanks for your time. Some day I hope to get this all resolved for sure.

"...absolute evidence that the Mary Houghton who married William Drake was the daughter of Joab and Catherine Houghton. In the book, Our Houghton Heritage, on page 65 is a document that contains the signature of William Houghton's (son of Joab and Catherine) brothers and sisters. Among these signatures is that of "Mary Drake". This document is dated December 16, 1801. In the same book on page 23, we have the will of Thomas Houghton, brother of Joab Houghton in which he states: "I give and Bequeath unto my Niece Mary Drake a pair of Sheats and two Coverlids." This will was written on 21 Dec 1784. It should also be noted that Thomas never mentions a sister Mary in this document, so one must assume that she was dead."

CJV: Howard Houghton, in his Our Houghton Heritage, p. 19, gives Mary, daug. of Thomas and Maria (Mesrshon) Houghton, as wife of William Drake, but see above for correct marriage (p. 23 and 65)
