THE CHILDERS, MARTIN, HOUSTON & ELSTER FAMILIESUpdated July 2, 2008
I am looking for ancestors of Israel D. HOUSTON (1830- 1888), who was born in Alabama.His name first appears in the 1850 Texas census.He then settled in Tulare County, CA. and married Sarah Ann DUNN in 1862.They had three children, John Wilbur, Nancy Jane and Josephine.Their daughter, Nancy Jane had stated in a newspaper that her father, Israel was a nephew of General Samuel HOUSTON (1793-1863).I am looking for any ties to the Houston bloodline whether General Sam Houston is an ancestor or not. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I'm also looking for any information regarding to Oliver CHILDERS and Louise LEE. They were married in Clark County, Illinois, in 1852. Oliver Childers died near Fresno, California in 1902.I am very interested in any ancestors and descendants of this bloodline.
I am also willing to share the information I have.
