I have been told John Houser's father and brother were both named Henry. Do not know who they married, possibly is Elizabeth Hershberger. Do you know if they immigrated from MD.? Here are the names of John and Sarah's children:

Samuel b: 3/21/1837 d: 4/3/1854. Fell out of a tree and broke his neck.Born in MD.
James b: 1839 - born in MD
Jacob Henry b: 1/19/1842 in MD d: 8/22/1866. My great aunt said he died in the Civil War
William Houser b: 1844 in MD. Living in Franklin, OH, 1880 Census
Spouse: Elizabeth Belsford - daughter Nellis, 11, 1880 Census
Mary Catherine Houser b: 11/15/1845 in OH. She is my husband's great grandmother. D: 1924 in Miamisburg, OH - buried in Hillgrove Cemetery. Married: November 15, 1864 in Miamisburg, OH - 1st Reformed Church to George Adam Miller
John W. Houser, Jr. b: 1849 in Miamisburg, OH
Spouse: Mary A. Sarah (Mother) & Claybourn living with him in 1870 Census in Miamisburg.
Mary Martha Elizabeth Houser b: 4/8/1851 d: 8/5/1925; She was born in Winchester (now Gratis) Preble Co., OH - Married Samuel M. Beck. She is my great grandmother.
Sarah A. Houser - b: 1854 in OH d: 8/6/1895. She never married and had lived in Chicago. Was buried either at Ellerton Cemetery or Hillgrove Cemetery.
Claybourn: b: 1858 d: 1/26/1922. Died of Carcinoma of Tongue and Mouth. He is buried with Sarah at Hillgrove.
If you have any information on these children, would love to know.
Sarah died in 1877. John supposedly died in 1872 but cannot find his stone at Hillgrove beside Sarah.
Thanks for any help.
