The Ayling House - a Memory of Houghton.

I know this house is where my great-great-grandfather Harvey Ayling was born (in 1834). The Aylings were in this house for many generations. I have a picture of this same house from the late 1800s with 2 horse wagons parked out front. Still, even today, the same house has the same Ayling family decendents living there.
I even have a record of my g-g-g-g-grandpa John Ayling being a resident in Houghton dated from 1778. It could go back even more years than that.

I also have a photo of this house from circa 1930 showing my father as a young man together with other relatives. My great-great-grandfather was William Ayling born 1826 who is Harvey Ayling's elder brother.
