Married1059 1909~5058. The biography of Hollis Houghton mentions daughter Neda married to C H Billings, of New Mexico. The 1910 census5058 for Malaga, New Mexico, lists Charles Billings and wife Neda as both married twice, married 1 year.

Neda Houghton married first Apr 6, 1904, in Waverly, IA, Nicholas H Christensen, born in Denmark to Chris Christensen and Ingeborg Wissen.
That marriage apparently did not last long, whether Nicholas died or they were divorced, as Neda married1059 Charles H Billings about5058 1909. She appears as Charles' wife in the 1910 census5058 for Malaga, New Mexico - Neda Billings, age 32, born Iowa, parents born Michigan/New York. In that census, both Charles and Neda are listed as married twice, currently married for 1 year. Neda is listed as the mother of 1, none living.
