Surnames: McCarty, Houghland

I'm interested in info on the Oscar Houghland family. He married an aunt of mine named Louisa McCarty. They started out in Dubois County, IN, but at some point moved to Bingham County, Sterling, Idaho. According to census records, they had at least two kids--Robert and Hellen. I'm especially interested to know if any descendants of this family know about Louisa's ancestors.

Oscar was my great grandfather. I still live in Idaho close to their home place. Did you ever find out anything about Louise?
