      Lizzie Van Cleave Walker (daughter of Ida Hougham) wrote about the family. "I
      always admired Grandfather Hougham. Grandmother died at the age of 42 years
      leaving 10 children - one almost a baby who died soon after her death. He never
      married again, devoted his whole life to his family and did a good job training
      them - no disgraces or shotgun weddings. Grandfather died at the age of 63. The
      youngest Uncle Jake (Ellen's gf) was 17 years old - made his home with my
      parents until he married Josie (sister to Lizzie's husband John Bothwell
      Walker)....Grandfather was a good provider, had several hundred acres of land,
      raised and fed lots of cattle. After Grandfather was older his children who
      lived around near had lots of potlucks and get togethers at his hime. He was
      very proud of us grandchildren and I wonder how he survived those days for we
      all tried to sit on his lap at once, braided his hair, braided his beard, ouch!!
      It must have hurt. Listened to his watch tick until we almost wore it off its
      chain. He gave the ground where the cemetery is when the first man in that
      community passed away and that man was my great grandfather Van Cleave born long
      before I existed."
