Jack Huston was the youngest son of 9 known children born to Arthur and Susan (Baker) Huston. He was born near Lincoln (possibly at home in Saltillo). Around 1900 the family moved to Middlebranch, NE (in Iowa Township, near Page). In 1906, when Jack was 9 years old, the family traveled by covered wagon to homestead in South Creek Township, Lyman County, SD (changed to Jones County in 1917). On May 17, 1918 Jack Married Margaret Mary McCullough, who bore 10 children (the first child, Kate, was born and died in 1920): Arthur (KIA WW1), Jack, Mary Jane, Rex, Joe, Huey, Josephine Ann (Joann), Margaret, and Sharon. Aside from being farmers, the Jack & Margaret Huston family were musicians who sometimes played for dances in Midland. Although they moved to other nearby areas sometimes, they kept the farm 8 miles outside of Midland and always moved back, until later in life when they moved to a smaller house in Rapid City (for a couple of years they lived in Capa, now a ghost town, and owned a grocery store, which Margaret ran). The couple had many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The farm was sold after their death. However, Jack's parents' old homestead is still standing (empty), about a mile from Jack's old farm. As is a railroad car won in a poker game in Capa 50+ years ago by my father, Rex (son of Jack & Margaret).
