"GEORGE J. HOUSTON MAY 1912 (from Middletown newspaper.)
George J. Houston, one of the best known residents of Scotchtown and a direct descendant of General Sam Houston, of Texas fame, died suddenly at his home at Scotchtown on Wednesday evening at 8:30, as a result of an attack of heart trouble, with which he had several times been afflicted slightly in the past.
Mr. Houston was born on March 26, 1852, on the old homestead at Scotchtown, the son of the late John G., and Mary W. Bradner Houston, and had spent the greater part of his life in that vicinity. He was united in marriage on October 18, 1876, to Miss Charity B. White, a daughter of James and Mary Ann White, the ceremony being performed by the late Rev. Davie Beattie, then pastor of the Scotchtown Church.
Mr. Houston is survived by his wife and the following children: John B., of this city; Miss Anna May and Denton W., at home, and H. Van Duzer, of this city. Two half-sisters, Mrs. Ida Bradner and Mrs. William Mills, are both dead.
Mr. Houston was an attendant at the Scotchtown Presbyterian Church and was a trustee of the Scotchtown cemetery."
