There is "Knights of PA" family tree that lists a Hugh Huston with these dates. It shows his parents as John Huston and Phebe Philpot.

Do you have any more information on his daughter Rachel? I have a Rachel Huston b. 10 Apr 1809 in Ohio and d. 2 May 1859 in Wayne county, IL. She married Wiley Webb. Any chance these are the same?

I think the Knights from Pa. is Steve Knight who I corresponded with and I gave him the informaton about Hugh Huston. Does his family tree have any information about Hugh Huston's first wife, Elizabeth? That is where I am up against a bick wall. I am 99.8% sure Hugh is my ancestors' brother, but if I could confirm his wife's identity I would know for sure. In regards to Rachel, she married Thomas Mitchell. They had living children who were named as decendants of Hugh in his estate records. They were Sarah Enoch and her husband, Joseph; Margaretta; Andrew; John; and Mara. Her husband evidentally married her sister, Sarah, after she died. Rachel is buried in the Mitchell Cemetery in Washington Township, Franklin County, Ohio, along with two of her children. She died on Sept. 13, 1851, at age 39y-6m-16d. I hope this is helpful. Dale
