These volunteers are volunteering their time and knowledge to help all Howard Family Association Members with assistance and information to help with their research. If not for these volunteers, there would not be a Howard Family Association. They have all worked hard to make your research a little easier. I would like to thank each and every one of them for a great job they are doing. We have all hoped for more volunteers, but we are happy we have any at all. There is so much to do and it makes it hard at times for the volunteers that we do have and they work so well under the pressure. Again, thank you volunteers for making HFA a success.

We would be happy to hear from others who could volunteer a few hours a month to help HFA be the Howard Family center for information. Please contact Robin Howard Lowery at Ml69camaro@aol.com to find out how you can volunteer. If we want to keep HFA going, we need the help. You can always contact me, if you have any questions. My email is always open.

The volunteer may create and modify the web pages in whatever application they choose and then email the HFA Webmaster the finished project to be uploaded (and linked when necessary) to the HFA Web Site.  Many volunteers are needed so that each Committee can have the necessary web pages created, maintained and updated when needed.

what improvements can be made.  Those of you who receive the HFAQN through the postal mail, who wish to submit anything to the newsletter, you can send them to me, Jen Bailey, at 821 47th Street South, Great Falls, MT  59405-5723.

We are looking for members who would be willing to be 'Lookup Volunteers'. If you have materials pertaining to Howards in a certain state, which you are willing to do simple "lookups" for others, please e-mail me at History@howard-family.com to volunteer. Please state your name, e-mail address, and materials you have available for lookups (please specify state page the materials will need to be on as well).  Canadian pages will be coming soon.

Lewis Whitfield Howard was a Lt. in the Civil War and was wounded at Petersburg on June 21, 1864. Shot in the leg, his horse killed, he was able to return to Hampstead/Grovedere Plantation, and married Rachel Mallard and had the following children: My grandfather , Bernard, Hester
Elizabeth, Mary Lillian, James (Jim), and Elma.
Lewis W. Howard was a graduate , Lawyer, from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, graduating in 1858, just before the war. His oldest son Bernard was 13 as his daddy died. Rachel Mallard was 21, and Lewis 49 at their marriage in "Grant" Township after the war. This was
later changed back to Topsail Township, as the "Yankees" left and went back home up north......
Below is a memorandum from Robert E. Lee , Gen. and sent to Hon. James A. Seddon,  Secretary of War, about the action in and around Petersburg Va.  I had seen this and knew that my Great Grandfather, Lewis W. Howard, had been wounded on the 21.  I noticed this memo was dated the June 22, 1864

Since Friday last there has been skirmishing along the lines in front of Bermuda Hundred and around Petersburg. The Federal army appearzx to be concentrated at these two places, and is strongly intrenched. Yesterday a movement of infantry, cavalry and artillery was made toward the right of our forces at Petersburg, in the direction of the Weldon Railroad. The enemy was driven back, and his infantry is reported to have halted. His cavalry have continued to advance upon the
road by the route further removed from our position. The enemy’s infantry was attacked this afternoon, on the west side of the Jerusalem Plank Road, and driven from his first line of works to his second on that road, by General Mahone with a part of his division. About sixteen hundred
prisoners, four pieces of artillery, eight stand of colors and a large number of small arms were captured.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
R.E. LEE, General
HON. JAMES A. SEDDON, Secretary of War.

Emma Howard, daughter of Harold, was born February 16, 1868, in Peoria, Ks.  On March 14, 1883, she was married to Thomas McDowell at Peoria, Ks. To this union, six children were born, all of whom survive their mother.
About 45 years ago, Mr. and Mrs. McDowell moved to a farm 18 miles northwest of Alva, OK. This remained Mrs. McDowell's home until the time of her passing, which occurred on December 8, 1914. She had been ill about a week.  Many years ago, Mrs. McDowell became a member of the Methodist church.
At the time of her passing she ha lived 76 years, 9 months and 22 days.  Among those who mourn her departure are the husband; the six children; Mrs. Florence Dickey, Kiowa, Ks; Mrs. Nellie McCorkle, Bristol, Colo; Mrs. Lorena Nicola, Alva, Ok; Mrs. Ollie Welch, Alva, Ok; Mrs. Minnie Hutchinson, Alva, Ok; Sgt.

=+="Death of Harold Howard"
H. Howard, and aged and respected farmer of Osage Twp. died Friday evening, September 10, 1909 at the home one mile northwest of Fontana.  He had been in failing health for several years and the morning of his death was taken suddenly ill. His ailment was Bright's disease.  Mr. Howard was born in New York State in 1830. In 1842 he removed with his parents (John Jay and Lydia Howard) to Kalamazoo, Michigan, and ten years later, during the gold excitement in California, in a wagon train of forty wagons and 150 people, he made the trip, which required seventy-five days. He remained in California almost three years, returning by way of the Isthmus of Panama to New York and west to St. Louis by rail, and from St. Louis to Leavenworth by boat in 1855. He remained in that vicinity several years, engaging in various occupations and eventually purchased and operated a saw mill on the Marquis des Cygnes river at old Peoria City, from where he came to this county about twenty five years ago and purchased the D.H. Cooper farm, where he spent his remaining years.
Mr. Howard was a quiet, unassuming man, who took an interest in his farm and in all public affairs. He was a kind husband and father and a faithful Christian. With his wife he is survived by three daughters and one son, Mrs. Arthur Lowe of Osage twp., Clarence in Idaho and Mrs. Thomas McDowell and Mrs. Oaks in Oklahoma. The funeral services were held from the residence. The remains were buried in the Fontana cemetery Sunday.

Bartholomew. The "Esq." was to denote he was a Justice of the peace etc. , and the first court held was held in his house. John was on the "Militia" of Onslow before, and during the Revolutionary War...

James Howard came to New Hanover (then) , in 1762 and settled on the "Fredericks Creek " later to be called the Virginia Creek area. He bought 303 acres from a Thomas Merrick, who had bought it earlier from a "Frederick" by land grant. in about 1726. James Howard was married to

Virginia Creek and the area surrounding that area being developed by "Pelican Reef" on beautiful Virginia Creek, was not always called by those names. This part of Topsail Sound was granted to a man identified only as "Frederick" in 1728. About the same time a Richard Nixon was getting a land grant on those portions south . This was a year before the area was deemed to be located in New Hanover County. Frederick lived on the approximately 300 acres and sold it to a Thomas Merrick in 1737. Both deeds are still on file in the old records of the New Hanover County Registrar of Deeds office in Wilmington. 
A James Howard, and wife Hester Moore Howard, bought 203 acres from Thomas Merrick on the creek by deed in 1762 and it name was changed sometime during his 35 year tenure of the  property. This was the same James Howard, who during the Revolutionary War, served as a paymaster for the Continental Troops. He was a major in the Continental Militia.  This James Howard and Hester Moore Howard, were the parents of James Whitfield Howard who bought  three tracts of land...a total of 1525 acres....that today encompass all that is called Hampstead N.C. in 1835.  This land, and surrounding, had been land granted to a Richard Nixon in 1728 . The first tract, beginning over to the north at Campbell Creek, was a smaller part deemed "Old Grovedere" and originally owned by a Campbell. The second and middle of the three tracts was at old Mobson Road, today Factory and Peanut Roads. Near the center was the Mobson Plantation. The third tract was to the south and called "The Ennett Plantation, and bordered today’s Deerfield", and part of it.  James W. Howard lived on the three combined tracts, now called Grovedere Plantation , for many years until his death in 1837. He also still owned some property near Virginia Creek, and on "Wolvin Ridge" by inheritance. His father having purchased the Wolvin Ridge property from the McClammy brothers, neighbors at the time.... James  Whitfield Howard had but two boys. One was Robert James Howard, who married a Margaret Nixon, and the two of them lived on a large portion of what is today the Belvedere, and Olde Point Golf courses.
The second son was Lewis Whitfield Howard, who married Rachel Mallard, and settled and lived where his father first lived. Today, Factory Landing overlooks Howards Landing and Howards Channel. There were three plantation homes located on the sound, overlooking the Howard Channel . The first built by James W......burned during or right after the civil war. The second built by Lewis W., and a third that was torn down, as the Hunnicutt family built there on the same location.  Grovedere ran from the "low water mark to the run of the bay", from Campbell Creek to about the Deerfield property and then some.  The area of Hampstead, today, was first settled by mostly Onslow County families early on : Batts, Batson, Howard, Nixon , Ennett, McClammy........and some later such as the Sidbury et. al. ......As you continue southwestward about this time you find......Nixon, Foy, Jonathon, and Soloman Ogden, and et. al.  Bordering Pelican Reef....Freedericks' Creek property was the old Ashe property that was granted to a member of the Baptista Ashe Family, also in 1727-28. The old house still stands and has been declared one of the oldest houses still standing in North Carolina.
The house was sold several years later to a Baptist Minister from Lenoir Co., Lewis Whitfield. He settled his oldest daughter Rachel Whitfield on the property and she married a Wright whose daughter married "old" Dougal McMillan.   Many still remember fondly Miss Nellie and Janie  McMillan. Old Mr. Dougal McMillan founded the first Presbyterian Church in Topsail, the only church for man years. Most here at the time were of that faith. Later, a large Mormon  congregation was established. The Howards were Presbyterian prior to the founding the  Pentecostal Holiness Church in 1904, and as it failed, Rachel Mallard Howard, took back the property and building, and the first Methodist church was built in 1929. The Howard Cemetery is still located at the original location, as the Methodist Church has been sold and relocated. The Cemetery is now the property of the Hampstead United Methodist Church, and like the older Mormon Cemetery, is a protected and registered cemetery.
By 1892 the Weldon railroad spur had been finished from Wilmington to Jacksonville and by 1893 to Pollocksville and New Bern. The railroad placed English names on the many stops along tracks: Hampstead, Annandale, Folkston, Edgecombe and others....The first property holders in this area were of English descent, who came down from Virginia, along with people from Bertie, Craven and Onslow Co's.  Many came to this country to get away from the rebellion of the "Round Heads", during the Cromwell versus the Crown and Catholic Church Disputes. Most were loyal to the King of England and left to come to the New World to escape all of the turmoil of the time.  We were Farmers and Fishermen.... In the beginning we were Protestant, and all  worshiped the one God....We were materially poor....and family rich. We were secure, in a place where the water and air were clean....
Saying that the name was not given in early years could sum up the total genealogy of Hampstead proper. We find it in use in 1835. However the land is of much interest...being PART of an earlier patent to Richard Nixon 1728. 
500 acres 64.... Francis McIlwean and his wife Mary, formerly Mary Nixon, daughter of Richard Nixon to Charles Hollingsworth. 
390 acres 1778...Charles Hollingsworth to Norman Harrison Chevers and David Forbes. 505 acres...1829 Henry B. Howard to Alexander Anderson 
505 acres...1832 Ed Dudley and A. Anderson, assignees of Henry B Howard to Moses Westbrook
505 acres 1835...Moses Westbrook to James W. Howard for 4500.00
5 tracts "A plantation call Grovedere" ...Hampstead today, and more. .... James Howard younger son Lewis Whitfield son inherited the property later on, and Lewis Howards sons Bernard Howard, and James (Jim) eventually held what was left at their maturity...Elmore Howard son of James Howard, and Joe G. Howard, grandson of Bernard, have since sold into the development called Forest Sound. Prior Howard Simmons Sr. son of Hester Elizabeth Howard Simmons, had sold parts, and The properties located south of Grovedere on the sound were sold by her son Howard Simmons Sr. , to Mr. Hampton Lea Sr. in the early 1900`s as the Lea family had arrived from Southport, where they were tenant fishermen, cominging originally from Charleston S.C. ... The property did include from Campbell creek.... to and part of Deerfield development....from the "low water Mark", to the "run of the bay. 1525 acres. Much has been sold over the years by Bernard Howard heirs....James and heirs ...and Hester Howard Simmons, and heirs...
Thanks all you Howards out there......see if you can plug in to us along our way......... and thank you Jen Bailey.....

Ø      My great-great grandfather was Abraham Howard born 8 March 1811 (believed to be in Westmoreland County, PA).  First records I have been able to locate are census for 1850, which showed he was in Westmoreland County.  About 1863, he moved his family or younger part of it, to Jackson County in Illinois.  If anyone has information on this family or is interested in a listing of children, etc. please contact me.

Ø       My Great Grandfather John Maney Honea, JR. married Mary Cathren Molly Melvina Kiser.  John’s parents names were: John Honey SR. and Martha Savannah Howard.  Molly’s parents names were Benjamin Kizer and Mary Howard.  Now to top the story off…Mary had a daughter named Savannah Lee Kizer…Martha had a daughter named Savannah Susie Honea…coincidence?  I don’t think so…Martha was born in 1840…while Mary was born in 1848.  I’m assuming that they were probably sisters, maybe cousins of some sort.  But I’ve yet to find any Howards that have daughters born about that time.  I know that Martha married in 1856 in Cherokee County…but I’ve yet to find any Howards in the area that match.  When Mary and Benjamin died…Jake Bouseman took two of the three orphans of theirs…leaving Savannah with another family…strange huh?  Well that’s my heritage on the Howard’s.  My hardest line to date so far…and I’m doing over 100 surnames each one with a database of their own.  If you have any information, please contact me.

Ø       I have been told, or heard that James Howard who arrived in Nansemond Co. in Virginia in the 1600’s, and was married later to Sarah Titus, daughter of Thomas Titus also of Nansemond Co., and had given much land to his son-in-law and daughter, before they moved to Bertie Co., N.C. ….. born of this marriage were, in order: James, Sarah, Edward, Samuell, John, and Solomon (the younger Solomon, inherited the Bertie Co. property on Cooneriscritt and Ahorsky Swamps area ….. today called Ahoskie N.C.)  My John came to Onslow Co. in 1742 ….. His two older brothers ….. James, and Edward had already arrived in Onslow.  And ………. etc.  Does anyone out there know who was the father for sure of James Howard, who married Sarah Titus ….. and anything about James other than what I mentioned above ….. I sure would be appreciative ….. Was it Thomas?? And if so ….. which Thomas was it ….. the father, son or grandfather ….. ??  Thanks all …..
