    Houck. John Houck (ca1773-21 May 1855), m. Eleanor Burgess (McCann) (ca1788-ca1870's) on 24 March 1824 in New Market, MD. His parents are ukn. He had (at least) 2 brothers, George & Henry. In my email of 17 Feb, I enumerated the 5 children of John Houck by his first wife (name and DOM are ukn). I also indicated that Eleanor Burgess (McCann) only brought 1 dau, Minerva McCann from her 1st marriage to John McCann. But looking at the 1820 census it shows there were 4 young children in the McCann household. Then John Houck and Eleanor Burgess (McCann) had 4 more children together, all born in Frederick Co. Here is the marriage info on these 4 children. Margaret Eleanor Houck (1 Jan 1825-18 Aug 1908) m. (ca1847) in Frederick Co Lewis Henry Dill (8 Nov 1821-14 Feb 1894). Anne Houck m. James McDermott and had issue. Charles Houck m. Mary Stockett and had no issue. William Houck died in the Gold Rush of 1849 .... no info whether he ever married and had issue.
