    Notes 
    • Recorded as Allington in marriage records


      My Hougham ancestor is CATHERINE HOUGHAM, dau of Moses 1. She was b. 21 Mar 1803 in Hillsborough, Highland Co. OH. She married, 21 Jul 1822 in Madison Co. OH, DAVID E. ELLINGTON, b. 22 Aug 1797 in KY. The following article says that they came from OH in 1828. Perhaps some of the Houghams came that early, too. "DAVID E. ELLINGTON, for some years after his marriage, was engaged in farming in the Buckeye state. In 1828 the family came to McLean County, Illinois, by wagon, a distance of over 400 miles, and settled at Blooming Grove, about two miles from the present site of the city of Bloomington, whose population at that time consisted of only four families and one store. In those early times the people of this part of the state had to go to a little grist mill near Springfield to have their corn ground into corn meal."* (*KH Note: This may be from the 1881 History of McLean Co IL, ck it.) "Sometime about 1830 the DAVID E ELLINGON family came to a tract of land in DeWitt County, three miles northeast of Waynesville, Illinois, which they entered from the Government, and here they reared their large family of twelve children, excepting one little child that died in infancy, and here these old pioneers remained until they were called to the Great Beyond."
