Houghton, Charles (27 AUG 1851)

Charles Houghton was born Aug. 27, 1851, in Allegheny Co., N.Y., and came to Wisconsin in 1855. He was the son of Sidney Houghton and still lives on the old homestead in Houghtonburg settle by his father so many years ago. He was married to Miss Mae Waltker July 4, 1876. Mrs. Houghton was an invalid for many years and passed away Jan. 1, 1894. Mr. Houghton believes that Humbird is doing as much business as any of the small towns and that we are going to see better times from now on. Extensive advertising by the merchants has drawn more trade here, which has greatly helped the town. Now if we could have a small manufacturing plant and more men with capital there would be no question of Humbird, Clark County, Wis.'s rapid growth.
