There were five or six adult John Houghtons in the vicinity at that time, and to keep their identities separate has resolved into an insoluble muddle. I am of the opinion that B. & G. [Burr & Gage] had their Keziah married to the wrong John... It is a matter of opinion." Vide NEHGR, V. 79; CJV: John, son of Jonas, is one of only 3 John Houghtons born in Lancaster between 1700 and 1750, and is therefore the most likely candidate
