Amanda Houston was a daughter of Julia and Dr. Henry Henderson Houston. The family lived in Texas. I have heard they lived in Van Zandt County, Texas. Dr. Houston was a son of Col. Almanzon Houston. I do not know when William James or Amanda Houston was born - somewhere about 1870/1880.
We are doing the Houston family tree and writing the Houston family book. Thank you. If you know anything about the James or Houston families, please contact Marge at: firstname.lastname@example.org
