I have for Richard an approximate birth year of 1848 and the date of his marriage to Lucinda GILMORE of 25 November 1870. I have for his death date only the year 1890 which I think indicates that he was dead by the time the 1890 Census was taken. For Lucinda GILMORE HOUCK I have a birth date of 31 March 1851 and a death date of 14 April 1898. Alva HOUCK was born in Clay Township so this may be a good place to start. I do not know who Lucinda's parents were for sure and wonder if they were John GILMORE and Anna Lee CLARK. Richard HOUCK's father was Henry HOUCK but I do not know who his spouse was. Henry's parents were Felty HOUCK and Susan KERNS. Was Felty his real name? Any information or lead source you can provide would be most helpful. I live in Idaho and do not get to Ohio except rarely.

SURNAMES: CLARK, HAWKINS
William HAWKINS married Senor CLARK in Gallia Co in 1823. It is possible that they may have a connection to Ephraim HAWKINS who married Jane CLARK in Gallia Co. in 1830. Later census say that Wm and Ephraim HAWKINS were both from VA and Jane and Senor (or Scena) CLARK were from NY. I think the boys may have been siblings as well as the girls. I am trying to establish that Wm and Senor HAWKINS are the same people as Wm and Scena HAWKINS, who were in Harrison and Crawford Co, IN by 1850. Please contact me if you know of them or any HAWKINS or CLARKS in Gallia Co who were from VA and NY and may be relatives. Would like to establish the parents of Wm and Senor (Scena).
