The above named persons are all dead now & my great grandmother Houghton was a Fowler before she was married.  She came from Wales and my Great grand father S---- said his grandfather came from Ireland.  His grand mother was a Skelton and I do not know where she was born.  My great Grand father S---s name was Isreal.  He had 12 sons and 2 daughters.  He was married twice, his first wife came from England her name was Susan Heard & before that he was married. So ? we have a mixture of English, Irish and Welch.
