Dear Airy,
I don't have Faithe's date of death or location, but her son, David moved to Laurel
County with his wife Almira, and that's where
my great grandmother, Florence Onkst McIlquham was born on 22 Aug. 1876. That's
where the rest of the family is buried.

I have been given conflicting information
about Faithe's parents--one person told me
she was William's daughter, another said that
was incorrect and I haven't tracked down any
positive information I can confirm. Any info
you have would be appreciated.

according , Faithe is the daughter of MY 4great-grandfather John Houston Elizabeth Kelly. But she is the only child listed. there are several John Houstons in Greene co at that time and several elizabeth Kelly's. No one in my family has Faithe written down ,but she would have been the first child of Johns. by the way William is Johns father. And there are several of them also at the same time! Faithe's mother is to have died before 1835. I thought if I could find out about Faithe, it would make it easier to tract down Elizabeth and John . John and elizabeth were married in Apr 9 1822 and/or oct 16 1824? in Greene co Tn and Washington co Tn. Will post further developments. Thanks.

Thanks so much Airy, I really appreciate
the information--sorry I couldn't return
the favor, but I only found out about Faithe
in August, as the name of my grgrgrandfather's parents were written as a
footnote on the census records of Laurel Co.
for David Onkst. Thanks again, and if I find
out where Faithe is buried I'll let you know.

It Seems that the Faithe Houston we were given is Faithy Huston, Henry Onksts 1st wife. She had 16 children. She was born 25th Dec.,1826 in Washington Co Tn. He mother is suppose to be Elizabeth Hunter, I do not know who her father is.She died Feb 3rd 1866 in Laurel Co Ky and then they had Warren Grove Cemetary listed? I still do not know Which Huston/Houston she is from, maybe some of your Kin would know. I'll keep a look out for her in my research! Airy

Thanks a lot--that sounds like her for sure.
Warren Grove Cemetery is basically a family
cemetery. My distant cousin, Rod Warren,
told me it was on the property line between
Onkst and Warrens' and there was a little
dispute about the exact line so they compromised and put a cemetery there for both
and I believe a small chapel as well. Also,
family information handed down told me David
had 15 brothers and sisters, so that fits
perfectly as well--thanks so much for the
dates, etc. I appreciate it a lot,

Henry Onkst and Faithy Houston were married in Washington Co. Tn in Nov l846. Henry and Faithy came to Laurel Co, London, Ky. Faithy died in 1866 and she is buried in the Warren's Grove cemetery in Laurel Co. She has a headstone which verifies same. Parents are believed to be John Houston and Elizabeth Kelly. I cannot locate my 1860 Laurel Co. census but I believe it has mother, Elizabeth Huston, in her household. I do believe this would be the correct parents for Faithy as Elizabeth's sister, Barbara Kelly married George Little and their son, John Little who married Barbara Range had a daughter, Ellen Barbara Little who married Henry Onkst's son, John Franklin. Many researchers think John Houston's father was William Houston and mother, Hannah Sherrill. I found on the internet the other day that a Houston researcher said this was not possible as that William went to Roane Co. Tn. We also had Riley Houston in Laurel Co, Ky whose mother was a Higgins and he married into the Henry Onkst family also. Our Houstons did not come from Roane Co. Tn. to Laurel Co. Faithy Houstonand Henry Onkst only had 10 children. After her death he married Joanna Wood and they had an additional 7 children. I would like to have a copy of your Houston research material. This family was prone to marry cousins.

Faithe's parents, I have conflicting stories, that is why I keep asking to see if any Kin has family history written down that could help us. I have found Faithe's mother listed as Elizabeth Hunter,Anna Hunters sister, which would make her Elizabeth Kellys aunt and no father listed, then as daughter to John and Eliz Houston/Huston.
