I live in Kansas City, Missouri, where do you live?
I know that many Houxes lived in the Columbus area; it was
the first settlement in Johnson County, Missouri, with the
early Houxes coming from Lafayette County. Prior to that,
the family had mostly settled in Boone and Cooper Counties
in Missouri. The Houx family came from Frederick, Maryland, settling in Tennessee and Kentucky for a few years. Mathias Houx was a Revolutionary War soldier in Maryland; he and Susannah Morningstar (MOrgenstern) were
married at Frederick. Then, with their children, they moved west to find land. Those two families were German Lutherans. I attended a Morningstar family reunion at
Buckystown, Maryland, in June 2003.
I will see what additional data I can find regarding your
Have you looked at census records? What happened to the
family during the Civil War? Why did they move to Texas?
A number of Houx families did migrate to the Dallas area, it seems.
