Hi Brenda,

Did you check here and see if any of these are related or could be related to you: http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Houghtaling

I believe this is an anglicized version of a Dutch name. You may also find relatives under variant spellings, so also look at http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/HOOGTEELING and the other "related names" at the top right on those two pages.
TY for answering, the only thing I know is Elizabeth was married to my great grandfather Claude Traver, I have no dates. She had 3 sons by my great grandfather, Howard, James,Elmer. Any help u can give me would greatly appreciated. The boys were born in LaGrangeville, NY Ty
I take it the family then is from New York!!  Looks like I found them. But do you know if your great grandparents came from Europe or Canada or where??
All I know is LaGrangeville, NY. Don't know if they were from any place else, sorry. Did u find anything on my great grandma Elizabeth where she's from or who her parents were? please and ty for ur help.

James Traver was born in 1908 in New York.

Elmer Traver was born in 1909 in New York.

Howard Traver was in 1910 in New York. 

Howard passed away in 1976. See Find A Grave Memorial# 122531729 at  http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=122531729&ref=acom

I found Elizabeth Houghtaling, age 19, born January 1881 in New York state, in the 1900 Census in Hyde Park, Dutchess County, New York. Daughter of James Houghtaling (born August 1851 in New York state) and his wife Georgie A. Houghtaling (born August 1858 in New York state). Sibling names are Henrietta, Lydia, and Helen.

I accessed the record in Ancestry (pay site), but the citation should be in FamilySearch. Citation is Year: 1900; Census Place: Hyde Park, Dutchess, New York; Roll: 1022; Page: 14A; Enumeration District: 0012; FHL microfilm: 1241022

Uncle James was born in 1906, his tombstone is in findagrave. His wife Lavina is also listed, they are in Pleasant Valley, Dutchess County, NY Tried finding Uncle Elmer and Aunt Helen, but cannot find these two. They are my grandfather's brother's.
TY for the info you found. Now I have something to go on.
