John HOUNSHELL b. 05 Oct 1756, d. 11 Aug 1827 and Susannah b. 01 Jul 1766, d. 11 Mar 1828 (we have been unable to determine Susannah's maiden name thus far) were married ~1781 and are the parents of William Ward HOUNSHELL. Our source,The Edwards-Honchell Newsletter, lists William's birth as 12 Feb 1793 at Rural Retreat, Wythe Co., VA, d. 28 Apr 1875. William married Nancy HOLSTON b. 15 Sep 1799, d. 04 Apr 1893 (d/o Benjamin HOLSTON and Sarah SIMMERMAN) on 23 Aug 1821 also at Rural Retreat, Wythe Co., VA. William and Nancy had 7 children:
James Holston Hounshell b. 06 Jul 1823
Harriet Jane Hounshell b. 1824-1825
Sarah Susan Hounshell b. 02 Apr 1826
Nancy Hounshell b. 1827-1828
Robert A. Hounshell b. 30 Mar 1829
Charles Hounshell b. ~1832
David Stuart Hounshell b. 04 Nov 1835

I have no note of a Harold from this marriage. I have additional information on this Hounshell line if you would like it. Most of the information came from Clifford Canfield's book "History of the Hounshell Family of Southwest Virginia." I am interested to know how you fit into this line.
