From the Carmi newspaper

"Died On the first day of August, 1873, at Rising Sun, Illinois, Maxfield Huston, in the seventieth year of his age.
The deceased was a native of Rising Sun, and sixty years of his life was spent here as a good, useful citizen, when he purchased a large tract of land in White County, Ill., a short distance from Mr. Vernon, in this State, where he resided the last ten years of his life.  Here he laid out a town which he named after his native place, and which has grown to a village of a dozen houses.

Mr. Huston contributed as much as any citizen to the building up of our town in its early days, leaving many houses standing as monuments of his enterprise and industry; among them Christian Chapel, the meeting-house of the Christian denomination, in the construction of which he took an active part.  He united with the Christian Church of this city in July, 1834, and lived a life consistent with his religious profession.  He was a quiet, unassuming, charitable man, and will be pleasantly remembered by all who knew him."

The Mt. Vernon referred to here is, I'm sure, Mr. Vernon, Indiana.

Several of his children spelled the name "Hueston"

From a Carmi newsletter clipping concerning her death:

"Death of Mrs. Electa Houston
The host of friends of the estimable woman mentioned above will be grieved to learn the sad announcement of her death, which occured at her home in White County, Illinois, near Carmi, on the evening of the 7th inst., after an illness of about ten days, of congestion of the stomach and bowels.  She was aged 62 years, 10 months and 5 days.

The deceased was the wife of Maxfield Houston, and with him was an early resident of Rising Sun.  She was an exemplary wife and mother, a firm friend, a benevolent woman-having a reputation for kindness to the poor and suffering that few obtain-and was a devoted Christian.  In early life she united with the Methodist Church, but upon the organization of the Christian Church of this city, she united with it, being one of the organizing members, under the preaching of Rev. James Challen, and with her husband and most of her numberous family was one of its most zealous and effective workers from the time of its organization until 1864-a period of thirty years-when she withdrew by letter, in anticipation of removing to Illinois, which she did in 1865, locating with her whole family of married sons and daughters at the place where her death occurred.  Finding no church privileges there, such as the Bible taught, she devoted herself to the work of establishing an organization, which was accomplished in the summer of 1876 and finally had the pleasure of seeing nearly the whole of her family enter the church.  Thus the desire of her heart attained, she calmly awaited the coming of the last enemy, which she met in peace, exhorting weeping friends to prepare for death.  Her funeral took place on the 8th inst."

1child from this union was Susanna Brittania Hamilton Williamson b. 1833 in IN
Even though Susanna Brittania was only a half-sister to Sarah Ellen (Sallie) Huston, they were as close or closer than sisters.  I have many old letters in my possession that were written between the two of them.  There is a tremendous amount of material and family history in these letters.
