Peter and Electa Bigelow Houck
Family Bible

The following is a part of a letter from Harriet Wever and may be of Historical and Genealogical value to readers searching the Houck Family.

"In one Historical account of Ionia Co., Michigan, I found this about the name Houck. James E. Hazelitt ( a prominent business man in the Ionia area) married Mary E. Houck—oldest of six children of Electa (Bigelow) Houck and Peter Houck. Mary was born in Yates county N.Y. June 2, 1838. Her Mother Electa died in N.Y. S. The father died in Michigan."

"From a Steuben Co. N.Y. Record: Henry Houck came from Germany, married Polly Bell of New York City---an English Lady, and settled in the town of Wayne, N.Y. He was a farmer and belonged to the Presbyterian Church. Their children were: Andrew; Nellie; Peter; Henry; Sallie; Abel; John; Joseph."

"There are no dates on this information but it was in the early 1800’s The Peter mentioned might be Electa’s husband."

"There was another Houck who settled in Wayne—but seems to be of no relation. He came from England. None of the family name match those from the Bible, but he apparently came over later than Henry."
