Joel Houghton was married to Amy (unknown), possibly a cousin born a Houghton.  He was born in VT in 1792.  His father, Ebenezer Houghton, a Revolutionary War veteran, moved with his wife, a Houghton cousin, to Maryland, Otsego, New York where his name is on a monument to the veterans of the Revolutionary War.  Joel was his youngest child. Joel lived in Ontario County in NY in the1830 census. and the moved later to Ogden, Monroe, NY.

Reuben Benjamin Houhton died at the age of 26 in 1846.  He is buried in the Locust Grove Cemetery in Adams Basin, NY next to Ogden.  His wife was Ruth Ann Follansbee Ring.  She is buried in the same cemetery with her new husband, Thomas Myers.

Joel Houghton was a grain cradle maker and so was Reuben Houghton.  Joel got the first patent on the auto dishwasher in the US and Reuben got the patent on the Franklin Stove, and Joel supported him.  Joel lived next door to the parents of Reuben's wife, Ruth Ring.  They were Abner Ring and Mary Follansbee Ring  Reuben had a daughter named Mary Amy Houghton named after her two grandmothers.  There is so much more but no birth records for Reuben.  There was no other Houghton male in that area but Joel to be Reuben's father
