Harry B. Houghton

Harry B. Houghton was the son of  Harry B. Houghton (b. Sep 1858) and Lottie (b. Aug 1861).  The 1900 census states he was born Aug 1879,  but I am inclined to think that this is wrong, just because there are so many other numbers that were crossed out and corrected, some by as much as 10 years. A birth date in 1879 doesn't fit with the likely date of his parents marriage, which was probably around 1882. There is a Harry B. Houghton Jr. of Ohio who appears in the census in 1910 and 1920 who would have been born around 1889.
