    Notes 


    • Frank had a son John S. Hougham born 2 Feb. 1900 in Indiana. He had a grandson named Boynton Frank Moore. This Francis Marion Hougham did not serve in the Civil War from Iowa, but it is very possible that his Uncle Francis M. Hougham (born 1841) did. Judy Aikman [email protected]

      The following relates to a mysterious Boynton Hougham, reputedly the grandson of Frank and Lena

      I believe that there was no Boynton Hougham! My father, who is still living (92), Boynton Frank Moore, was Milda Hougham Moore's first son and Frank Hougham's grandson. My father, Boynton, spent quite a bit of time with his grandparents Frank and Lena Hougham at both their "city" home in Indianapolis, Indiana and at their farm just north of the city in Madison County Indiana during the time from 1920 until Frank's death in 1940. A large part of his summers were at the farm. Lena Hougham was born in Germany and my father still remembers the German that she taught him. They, my father, Boynton, and his grandparents, Frank and Lena Hougham were very close. Perhaps neighbors thought he was actually their son at some point.
      My father (Boynton), was named after his father who was Boynton John Moore and his grandfather, Frank Hougham. Boynton is such an unusual first name...my other great grandmother, Lulu Carbaugh Moore, named her son (my grandfather Moore) after her doctor, Dr. Charles Boynton! (She gave him the middle name John after her husband and his father). Really very odd, in my opinion.
      I thank my mother continuously for stopping the tradition...my Moore grandparents thought she should name one of their daughters Boyntontina!!! Can you imagine? We ended up Suzanne, Judith, and Patricia...much better choices don't you think?

      After sending my last lengthy reply, I realized the most likely source of the confusion about Frank Hougham having a son named Boynton...
      Frank had a son-in-law named Boynton as well as a grandson named Boynton. His daughter, Milda Louise Hougham married a man named Boynton John Moore and she had a son she named Boynton Frank Moore. These families spent a lot of time together so possibly Boynton, the son-in-law, was mistaken for Frank's actual son??
      Sorry, I don't mean to be so confusing.
