I am searching for information about Isaac Halivus Vanhouten who lived in Jefferson County, Arkansas. He also owned land in Washington County around 1885-1900.I am trying to verify that he and his wife Virginia Lee (Manson) lived there and perhaps where Isaac was buried. My grandmother said he was a school teacher in the county at Pine Bluff, Arkansas and they had three children, Alma born abt. 1895, Isabelle born 1894-1896 and Hal born abt. 1897. She said Isaac died in a flash flood there. Isaac disappears off the census in 1900 and his last child was born about 1897 so I gather his death was 1897-1900. Grandma said he spoke several languages and was from Holland but census record for the children says their father was born in Indiana. I am unable to find any hard information about him using the internet search engines (ancestry.com-census etc). Any assistance or clues on where to look is greatly appreciated as this search has been going on for several years. Thank You! Tena PS Hi Richard Van Houten, I am still trying to confirm this connection as Isaac disappears from tracking between 1880 and 1900. There seems to be 2 or 3 Isaac's and am trying to determine which one he is. A few folks on the net have made the connections but the birth dates do not match in my research.
