has over 170 members, but only 7 volunteers. This makes it hard to give the
members everything they want or expect. Volunteers have had to resign
because of health, business, personal business, and even stress. It always
makes it easier for volunteers when there is a nice number of them. If we
had enough volunteers, each volunteer would only have to spend a couple of
hours a month on their project. However, as it stands now, most volunteers
have had to spend numerous hours trying to make HFA the Association that the
members expect. I would hate to see HFA dissolve because those willing to
put their time and hard work into the Association get so overwhelmed, they
have to resign. Please consider volunteering a couple of hours a month to

VICTIM OF FEVER.
MR. L.W. HOWARD, OF HAMPSTEAD, DIED OF HEMORRHAGIC FEVER YESTERDAY
MORNING AT 9 O`CLOCK
Mr Lewis Whitfield Howard, one of the well known and highly respected
citizens of Pender county, died of hemorrhagic fever yesterday morning at 9
o’clock at his residence near Hampstead. He had been in bad
health for two weeks but the disease which resulted in his death did not
seize him until Sunday last.The
deceased was between 60 and 65 years of age. He had many friends and
acquaintances in this city, several of whom were classmates of his at the StateUniversity,
of which institution he was a graduate.He served with gallantry in the late war and at the close had won the
rank of First Lieutenant in the Third North Carolina Cavalry. He was wounded
on June 21, 1864. In 1883 he married
Miss Rachel Mallard, of Hampstead, who with five children, two boys and
three girls survives him.
Mr. Howard was one of the most successful fruit growers in this section of
the country. Peaches from his orchard were on sale here in season, and were
always of a very fine grade.

article in the Michigan History Magazine written by S. Benjamin Harvey
entitled "An Incident in Early Michigan History". Hope it helps
"In October, 1895, I had the pleasure of meeting in Benzonia an old man
who was visiting that locality for the first time in sixty years. He was
John HOWARD, who was born in 1812 at CrossVillage,
the son of a fur trader there among the Indians. He thought he was the first
white man ever to have visited the Crystal Lake
region. His early life, he said, had been more that of an Indian than of a
white man until he reached his majority, as he lived mostly like the natives
and spoke their language as freely as he did English. He had made many
hunting trips to the Crystal
section of BenzieCounty
as there was much game about the lake.At
that time all that country for the greater part was one vast unbroken
wilderness. At the northeast corner of Crystal Lake
in a small valley of level ground there was an Indian village of perhaps two
or three hundred inhabitants. This site was bought many years later and
cleared for a farm by William Wilson, a former member of the crew of the
Monitor.On a cold winter day in
late December, 1831,HOWARD
happened to be at this village, when two emissaries from Black Hawk, chief
of the Fox Indians in Illinois,
arrived there and asked for a council meeting of the head men of the tribe.
Accordingly, onewas summoned at
once, he being invited to sit with them. The council house was a rude
structure located in front of and not far from the present Wilson
home, as nearly as Howard could determine after so many years.When the assembly met, the oldest chief occupied the main position,
and the others ranged themselves according to rank in a kind of oblong
circle about the walls, with the two visitors in the center. After a few
introductory words by the leader, a pipe of peace was passed around. Then
the enjoys were called upon to present their case. Each in turn arose and
violently railed against the white man, reciting a
long list of wrongs suffered at his hands. In conclusion, they asked for an
alliance of Michigan Indians, to drive out the white intruders from the red
man's hunting grounds and to kill all who might resist.There was to be no peace making until the last man had been chased
out or killed. Fortunately for Howard, he was not recognized by the envoys
as a white man, so escaped any possible personal danger.At the conclusion of these fiery addresses, there followed brief,
low-toned discussion, each man with those next to him. Then the pipe of
peace was circulated again, followed by a long silence, after which the head
man arose to speak. It was a moment of tense uncertainty.With piercing eye his glance swept around the circle of his
tribesmen, he said that the white man had been kind to his people, and he
had no particular complaint to make against him. Further, he said, the
whites were too strong to be beaten in the long run, and the result would be
the burning of their villages and the killing of their women and children.
Hefinished speaking in an air
of gloomy silence. Then others, in succession, got up to speak, echoing the
same views; but long before the last man would have a chance to say a word,
the visiting messengers sullenly arose, wrapped their blankets about them
and stalked angrily out into the dark night. Mr.Howard said that he with the others stood on the shore and watched
them disappear across the snow and ice in the direction of the lake outlet;
and the Otttawas remained loyal to their white friends. Thus ended a little
known, yet important, episode in the history of this part of Michigan's

Cemetery plots, especially in public cemeteries, are also considered land
records. You can find indexes to plot deeds in the CountyRecorder's
Office of the appropriate county. These deeds are often invaluable because
the owner of the plot may be a distant relative you didn't know about. Be
certain to check out who bought the plot.
From time to time we all run across information which helps fill in among
some otherwise sometimes dull facts in our HOWARD ancestry. Here is my
contribution. I'll be looking forward to others'.
I recently ran across an article in a book entitled, "Century Readings
in English Literature" (1910) by Cunliffe, Pyre & Young which sent
me down an interesting rabbit trail. Earl Henry HOWARD (1517?-1547), was a
close friend of Sir Thomas Wyatt (notably remembered as the youthful lover
of Anne Boleyn, later the 2nd wife of King Henry VIII) and each were authors
of sonnets and poems among their other endeavors. Following at the end of
this message is the article which introduces about 3 1/2 pages of selections
of his writings.
From another book, "The Reformation in England,
Vol 2" (pg 484-489) (orig. pub in 1866-78), we find that there were two
major families struggling for control in England,
(whose fortune and strength was rising) and the long powerful
Norfolk/Howards (at one time, second only to the king) whose power was
Henry was Thomas' eldest son and "was a young man of great
intelligence, high spirit and indomitable courage, and excelled in military
exercises. To these qualifications he added the polish of a courtier, fine
taste and an ardent love for the fine arts; his contemporaries were charmed
by his poems; and he was looked upon as the flower of the English nobility.
These brilliant endowments formed a snare for him."
Henry apparently became the "fall guy" in a plot to eliminate the
Norfolk/Howard family from the running. Henry Howard and/or his father,
Thomas (Howard) Norfolk,
in a collateral line of succession, had been named (before the birth of the
king's [Henry VIII] son, Edward) as probable successors to the throne of England.
Henry and Thomas had on occasion been seen to wear the "arms of England"
in the "first quarter" [in his coat of arms]. This together with
some private and public statements attributed to
them were used to arrest Thomas and Henry for high treason on Dec 12, 1546.Henry was declared guilty on Jan
7, 1547 before the council and again on Jan 13 before a
jury (after a special message from the king was read to the reluctant
"This young nobleman, only about 30 years of age, the idol of his
countrymen, was executed [beheaded] on Tower Hill. Public feeling was
shocked by this act of cruelty, and everyone extolled the high qualities of
the earl. His sister, the duchess of Richmond,
took charge of his five children, and admirably fulfilled her duty as their
aunt, appointing as their tutor John Foxe, [the famous] author of the
"Acts and Monuments of the Martyrs.""
His father, Thomas (Howard) Norfolk
was only barely saved from the same fate by the death of King Henry himself
on Friday, Jan 28, 1547.
The new government declined to begin the new reign by putting to death the
foremost peer of England.
Thomas lived for another eight years and died in Kenninghall.
From my data, Henry was the son of Thomas Howard, (3rd Duke of Norfolk) and
Lady Anne Plantagent. One of Thomas' brothers was Edmund, whose (supposed)
lineage follows. Notice Edmund's daughter was Catherine HOWARD, 5th of King
Henry VIII's wives who was also beheaded, accused of adultery.
Most of you know that the exact ancestry of Matthew Howard, Sr, the
immigrant to America
(who is my ancestor), has not been proven to everyone's satisfaction, but
this is the most common which I've seen. Please use this and all other
similarly acquired information, not as proof, but as a starting point for
your own research. If anyone needs more info, let me know.

Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey (1517?-1547)
Henry Howard, or, as he is commonly called, Surrey, was, like [Sir Thomas]
Wyatt, actively connected with the English court. His courtly occupations,
however, were not so much administrative and diplomatic as military and
chivalric. From his early years up to manhood, Surrey
was the companion ofprinces,
and more than once his elders bargained for his marriage with a princess. As
a boy of some fifteen years, Surrey accompanied the king to France,
and remained at the French court. At the age of twenty, by striking a
courtier who had accused him of seditious intentions, he landed himself in
confinement for a few months at Windsor.
These months Surrey
spent in versifying, a diversion for which he had been well prepared by
previous practice and by considerable reading in classical and contemporary
literature. After having distinguished himself from time to time in jousts,
he was made Knight of the Garter in 1541. Surrey's
impulsive and adventurous spirit, which established him as "the most
foolish proud boy that is in England,"
led him to eminent military service in France,
during which he called forth the king's reprimand by exposing himself
needlessly to danger. By numerous angry and trenchant utterances, he
eventually brought upon himself the charge of treason, which he vigorously
denied, but which led, ultimately, to his beheading on Tower Hill, January
Although Surrey composed verse during most of
his lifetime, his poems first appeared in print in 1557, when Richard Tottel
published "Songs and Sonnets written by the right honorable Lord Henry
Howard, late Earl of Surrey, and others." During the same year appeared
translation of the second and fourth books of Virgil's "AEneid", a
translation in which blank verse is used for the first time in any notable
way in English.Although Surrey
was the poetical disciple of his friend [Sir Thomas] Wyatt, he excelled his
master in range of subject, in refinement and variety of versification, and
in delicacy of feeling. Submitted by Tom Burch < Tomburch@aol.com
