Members Family Announcements
- From the President.....
The Howard Family Association has been growing in a rapid rate and we seem
to be getting more organized as we grow. I cannot stress enough the
importance of everyone knowing that the Association belongs to all of the
members not just a hand full of us. I ask that every member be a part of the
Association. To do this, you can volunteer your time, offer your expertise,
make suggestions, or just send your GED file or family reunion information.
I would also like to announce that we are now taking sponsors for our
Association to help with some of the expenses. These sponsors will be Howard
family members and not outside of the Howard family. Our first sponsor is
Howard Concepts, which happens to be owned by me, that will be paying for
all the web site expenses. This will include the two Web Hosting Sites and
the two domain names. Anyone who would like to have there business sponsor
any part of the Howard Family Association, please email me at
write to Ric Howard at 10857 Amherst Ave. #302; Wheaton, MD 20902-4348. We
will place a banner on numerous web pages for you. You may send a banner
that you create or we can create one for you. Since we do not have
membership fees and only ask for donations, we could use anything we can
On another note, we have been able to obtain unlimited redirection email
addresses. What this means is that we can now give any member an email like
Ric.Howard@howard-family.com and have it automatically forward to any email
address. In my case, it would be redirected to firstname.lastname@example.org, so, if you
would like a @howard-family.com email address, just email me with the email
address you want and the email address that you want it to be redirected to.
We do have our own SMTP server, but only have 10 emails right now. We will
have to see if it would be worth it, money wise, before pursuing it. It may
cost us an extra $22.00 per month and we do not have the funds at this time.
I would like to end with the statement "Lets make this the Howard
Family Information Center of the World."
Howard Family Association, President

of the Volunteer Committee
is the Volunteer Committee’s responsibility to help find volunteers for
positions open on all the committees of the HFA.
from the Volunteer Committee*
has several projects underway. The History Committee is ready to begin
collecting family data for the Howard Family book, the Fundraising Committee
is ready to begin the cookbook, and the Reunion Committee is currently
planning for the family reunion in June. HFA needs volunteers to keep
projects like these active.
Listed below are the current volunteer openings:
Fundraising (This Committee needs a Coordinator), Website, Reunion, History,
Special Projects (This Committee needs a Coordinator), Membership, Volunteer
If you are interested in volunteering, email Robin at Volunteers@howard-family.com
of the Web Site Committee:
The Web site Committee Volunteers are assigned one or more committees to
create and maintain the web pages for those committees. They work with the
Committee Leader getting what information they would like to have posted
there. The volunteer may create and modify the web pages in whatever
application they choose and then email me the finished project to me
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.
*Report from the Web Site
- The Howard Family Web Site
Committee has been updating the site and making numerous changes. There has
been a new GED index page added for any HFA member to their GED file
indexed. So far though, there are only 2 members who have submitted their
GED file. If you want your GED file indexed and posted, please email or mail
your GED file to Ric Howard at Ric.Howard@howard-family.com
or 10857 Amherst Ave. #302;
Wheaton, MD 20902-4348.
Another addition to the Howard Family Web Site is "HFA Members Family
Reunions", where you can post your family reunion in on central
location for all to see. Again, we have not gotten a huge number of
submitters. If you would like to
have your family reunion posted on the Howard Family Web Site, you can
contact Ric Howard at Ric.Howard@howard-family.com or 10857 Amherst Ave.
#302; Wheaton, MD
There has been many changes with the location of the HFA sites, which have
not effected the visitors, to better the web site. The
www.Howard-Family-Assoc.org domain is located on 25MB hosting site. The
www.howard-family.com domain is now located on a 400MB hosting site.
Most of you should not have even noticed any change, since the new
location was updated prior to the domain being moved. With 400MB to work
with, we should have plenty of space to make the Howard Family Association
Web Site an overwhelming location of information. But, we need your help and
We had a great suggestion from Ed Howard to do the following:
Why not put together a directory that includes occupations and areas of
expertise. That way we can identify other Howards with common interests,
station in life, and maybe even throw some business someone's way. I think
that I would feel more comfortable talking with a Howard family member than
just someone in the phone book. No! I think that it would be another great
way to interact.
Please contact Ric Howard at Ric.Howard@howard-family.com or 10857 Amherst
Ave. #302; Wheaton, MD 20902-4348, to voice your comments on this or for any
other ideas, suggestions or comments.
The HFA Web Site Committee, along with the Committee Leaders, will continue
to come up with ideas to make the Howard Family Association Web Site
beneficial for all Howard family researchers.
Howard Family Association, Webmaster
of the Membership Committee
Membership Committee shall have the responsibility of maintaining membership
records of the organization, and to find ways to attract new members.
Membership committee members shall be assigned different tasks to
accomplish these goals.
from the Membership Committee*
- The Membership Committee would
like to report that there are now 121 members of the Howard Family
of the Newsletter Committee
Newsletter Committee Volunteer is assigned a section of the Newsletter, in
which he or she will collect, compile and submit information to the editor
for placement in the Newsletter. The
Newsletter is a quarterly publication in which HFA Members can share
information with other HFA Members.
of the Reunion Committee
Reunion Committee will plan the HFA Annual Reunion.
They will find a central location for which the reunion is to be held
and coordinate all activities for the reunion.
from the Reunion Committee*
- Check out the Reunion Web Site
for more information on the Reunion, go to
- We will be holding an auction
at the picnic during the Howard Family Reunion, so everyone needs to bring
an item that would be sold at a yard sale or white elephant sale for us to
action off. The funds will be used to help pay for the Howard Family
Association expenses, which occur during the year. If enough is made, we
will use what we can for next years reunion. If any member of the HFA has
any comments or questions about the Reunion, please contact one of us.

of the History Committee
History Committee volunteer may be asked to maintain files, organize family
sheets, keep a card index of all Howard descendants and their spouses,
compile and write biographical records, family histories and personal
histories of Howard progenitors and descendants, and help with the Howard
lineage book to be published by the family organization.
from the History Committee*
- Greetings Howard family!
The History Committee will be working on separating and tracing the Howard
family(ies). I know this sounds like an incredible job (and it is) but I'm
sure that with everyone’s help, we can do it. What I need from everyone is
an updated version of your GEDCOM files. I can't follow anything if I don't
have it. Also, I'd like to begin work on that Howard family book that Ric
mentioned earlier. That will take a miracle to do but I think a little bit
at a time is better than none at all. If you have links to your genealogy
sites, please let Ric know so that he can post them and we all can view them
ourselves. Also, if there are any "Howard Legends" floating around
out there...I'd love to hear about them. I think that'd make an interesting
read, don't you?
Thanks for your support!

you have a Howard Family Story or any other interesting items concerning a
Howard Family please send to Dana Rambler at email@example.com.
the avid history fanatic when asked by a fellow "Howardonian"
if I would accept a transmitted copy of an original letter written by her
uncle, I readily accepted.
letter was written by a soldier fighting in Germany during WWII. His name is
Daniel Thomas Howard III, b. 09/06/1926 in Eufaula, McIntosh Co., OK.
Wonderfully he is still alive! Good
for you Uncle Dan. I found his letter a gem in a historical nature, but
fascinating as well. I would
love to hear some of his great “war” stories.
began to wonder just how many Howard’s died or were prisoners of war or
possibly even heroes of this war. War is such a devastating intrusion on
families. Not only do the
soldiers pay a bitter price but the families for years to come may also
confront any number of situations that may have been imposed on their lives
due to war.
was intrigued by the flavor of this letter. Uncle Dan had access to a
typewriter and states that he is using this during his guard duty.
Allowing for typewritten errors, the expression and subject matter
exposes insight to its author. He was from the OK/AR area, which at times
seems to have a dialect of its own. Having
lived in the South all of my life, travelling quite extensively over the
years, I’ve oftentimes heard remarks about the southern accent.
My mother insisted that the southern language (slang) not be used so
I have avoided the ridicule of this—but have a certain pride in my own
heritage and easily maintain my accent.
so desperately try to imagine what this young man must have sounded like
when in Germany. I grin at the
image of this young, naļve, mountain-speaking American in the midst of the
German Army. Not only would they
have been confused by the unusual language, not being what they may have
learned as “English”, but they may have been bewildered with the
attempts at communication. Maybe
we should consider the idea of training all soldiers in an unusual dialect
just to distract the enemy…
humorous image was short lived as I began to that Uncle Dan was also so very
far from home, so far from his family, fighting such a brutal war.
Once again the sorrowful images of so many lost consume my thoughts.
it be great to come together as a united group, the Howard Family
Association, and build our own small Howard Memorial to the fallen as well
as the heroes of wars? I propose
that all those who have access to any information of Howard family members
who have served submit this to me for an upcoming Down
Memory Lane. Not only would
this be an interesting project for myself, but also could provide valuable
information for the reader. Please
contribute some feedback to this concept.
cannot begin to do justice to Sandy Fischer’s uncles’ letter; the
original is wonderful on its own so I am enclosing the copy I received of
the actual letter. The second
page was inadvertently missed so Sandy typed this and sent it at a later
time. I hope that you too will
find it so valuable.
has her own web site out there, http://hometown.aol.com/Sfisc73516/page/index.htm,
providing some information to her Howard family roots.
Her email address is Sfisc73516@aol.com.
She is a genealogy enthusiast and a joy to correspond with. Thank you
Sandy for sharing such a wonderful moment Down Memory Lane.

that is our only current connection to the surname Howard. Prudence was
married to Simeon Everly, son of Casper (Gasper/Jasper) Everly. Casper
apparently was at one time in Maryland.
He with wife Sarah, and one or two children probably moved into
Monongalia Co. VA (but also claimed
by PA then) about 1767. Simeon said he was born in Cumberland (? County).
Md. Simeon probably married in
Monongalia or adjacent Green County, Pa territory, perhaps twice, the last
in about 1794 to Prudence Howard. Raised large family of about ten, said to
have lived out their lives in Morgantown, VA. Have names of most children.

great great grandmother Mahala (HOWARD) RATLIFF THURSTON (twice widowed) was
last known to be in Peoria IL 1862. I have lost contact with her, but have
recently been told that a Mahala J. Thurston married 3 Jul 1871 to a Harvey
Ferrel in DuPage county, Illinois, license 4952 V8. Could some kind soul
tell me if she was listed as a widow? or where she was living? She was
reported as age 47 in the 1860 Peoria census ( could neither read nor
write), so would be about 58 when married. TIA.

Howard b. Abt. 1842 in TN; Married: John Noah Ratliff b. Abt. 1818 in NC.
Elizabeth was probably his 2nd wife.
am a new genealogist and also new to the computer world and internet......I
am trying to decide if I am from the same Howard line.
I have been told by others researching my tree that I am a descendent
of Matthew Howard born in England and died in Virginia approx. April 1659
and spouse of Ann Hall and son of English born John Howard (spouse of
Elizabeth Lock). Is there anyway
you can help me? Thanks.

NY>WI>MN --- I am looking for NY Howards.
I have three that I think are brother and sisters: John Howard b.
1814 NY; living 1860 Watertown,
WI with Clarissa's family Clarissa Amelia Howard b. 21 Feb 1818 Madison, NY
m. 18 Apr 1838 to Wm H. Nelson d. 27 Jan 1887 Alexandria, Douglas, MN.
Helen Howard b. 1835 NY; living 1850 Watertown,
erson, WI with Clarissa's
family. I'm afraid I don't have
any more than that. I have no
further information on John or Helen except the one time they each appeared
with Clarissa and Wm Nelson's family in the Census in WI.
I have tried to obtain information in Madison Co., NY with no luck.
There was a John Howard about the right age to be the father in
