Charts for other members of this lineage, ancestors and descendents, will be added when time permits or you 

may write for information.  Peggy Hoehne's website provides good information on

this family at:


Homer. Sr:  early records spelled his name HomAr, his son was named HomEr,  but  by 1910 

census, both names were spelled HomEr.  Mary Ann:  Married Charles William Huston-

Appleby:  He was born  to an Appleby family,   but was raised by a family named Huston.  He used 

this name at the time of  his first marriage  and his children were given the surname of Huston.    

At some point in time,  he changed his name back to Appleby.  

Isabella:  Some controversy  over name and birthplace.

Joseph Frank:  A researcher wrote:  "I have trouble tracing this family.   

Most of the children were placed in an orphanage.    Some say that Sophia died in childbirth."

Other than basic research,  Appleby Heritage has not documented the material for Homer and 

Isabella or their children except where noted.  The data for this lineage was, mostly, contributed

by descendents.
