Biography

     John Houghton 3d was born on Jun 7, 1727 in Lancaster, Worcester Co., MA, USA. He married Mary Goddard Mary in Bolton VRs; Vermont Fam.: c 1749, Lancaster MA. John Houghton 3d married Susannah Dodge in Feb 20, 1770 at New York, New York Co., NY, USA, MLM: Mg. Bonds, Vol. of Endorsed Mg. Bonds. After the evacuation of the British in 1783, the practice of issuing licenses largely ceased. See Licenses of the Province of New York Prior to 1784, 1860, p. 9. The original records were destroyed at the time of the capital fire at Albany in 1927 (vol. 16, p. 25). John Houghton 3d appeared in the census of 1790 of Brattleboro, Windham Co., VT, USA 2 males 16+; 2 males under 16; 2 females. He married Sarah Rice in Sep 9, 1798 at Guilford, Windham Co., VT, USA, w/3; no issue. John Houghton 3d and Sarah Rice appeared in the census of 1800 of Brattleboro, Windham Co., VT, USA 00201-01101; #2 m 16-25 (Eli b.1783=17, Samuel b.1781=19)

#1 fm 16-25 (Anna b.1775=25, the permanently disabled daughter d.1864)
#1 fm 45+ (Sarah Rice b.1739=61)
If John's wife was born 1759, she would have been listed in the 26-45 column as a 41-year old. Assuming of course that the census was correct. John Houghton 3d died on Jun 11, 1826 at Guilford, Windham Co., VT, USA, JWH: "aged 99 years and 4 days"; MLM: "according to the unpublished records of Christ Church (Episcopal) of East Guilford, or Algiers, Windham Co., Vermont, the death occurring at the home of his son, Eli Houghton. At the time of his death, both in the church records mentioned and in contemporary Greenfield, Massachusetts, paper, his age was given as one hundred and one years, but the official record is very clear, and it may be supposed that the old gentleman gradually got to thinking of himself as two years older than he really was. Actually, he was 99 years old when he died. neither his burial place nor those of his three wives are known, consequently, no headstones, as far as I know (H.A.H.) However it is a fair guess that he and his second and third wives found terminal resting places in the cemetery on the meeting house hill, Brattleboro."

Hx of Berlin MA: another John Houghton, called John Tirtius, 3d, sold the place "where he lately dwelt" to Judge Samuel Baker in 1765. No record of his lineage, but his wife was Mary Goddard, the dau. of William Goddard, the miller. They rem. to Brattleboro, Vt., and later to Guilford, where he d. in 1826, aged 101 yrs.
