Howard Family Association Shutdown
From the President.....
As we near our second year, the Howard Family Association is shutting down.  We do not have the interest or volunteers to keep the association going. It has been a great feeling being able to share family information and work
with other Howards. But, there is to much work and time and not enough help.  I have enjoyed working with Jen (Howard) Bailey, which has been with HFA from the start, and Robin Howard Lowery, who was with HFA from the start and had to leave just recently for personal reasons. I have been happy to work with Burton Howard, our treasurer.
Jen (Howard) Bailey will continue to do the Howard FE Newsletter, but this will be the last Howard Family Association Newsletter. Jen has done a fantastic job with both Newsletters. I recently received an email from
Ramonyca Howard, who founded the Howard FE Newsletter and asked us to take it over when she was no longer able to, and she said "I like the way she (Jen) is doing the newsletter. It's great." Like I said, Jen will continue
the Howard FE Newsletter and I will put it, as well as the back issues, on a web site. I should have that web site up and running soon. I am keeping the Howard-Family.com domain and moving it to another web host to put some, if
not most, of the data and information from the HFA web sites for anyone to see. I will not be doing research or answering any questions on the information, since I only have what others have given me.
All Newsletters, hopefully updated as much as possible, will be placed on the website, including Ramonyca's.
As I end this great honor of being the President of the Howard Family Association, I want to thank all of you who have volunteered (no matter what the length) and those who have contributed information, stories, or even
kind words of thanks and encouragement. If anyone ever wants to try to get the HFA going again, let me know, I would love to be a member.
Thanks You,
Ric Howard
Howard Family Association, President

My earliest known ancestor is Minson Brough Howard born 15 January 1764 and died 20 December 1829 in Sampson County, North Carolina; married (1) ca1788 probably in Sampson County, North Carolina to Ann Williams, daughter of John "She" Williams and Katherine "Kate" Carouth; married ca1797 to Dorcas White.
Comments: Minson's father is believed to be Thomas Howard. As there were several Thomas Howards in NC at that time, it is yet to be determined which one is the father of Minson. It is also suspected that Brough is a family name, most likely on his mother's side. I have found info that suggests that a daughter of Coleman Brough (of Virginia) married Thomas Howard, though those dates do not coincide with  Minson's father Thomas Howard. I am wondering if perhaps my Thomas was the son of Thomas Howard Sr and Unknown Brough.

My earliest known ancestor is Charles Howard. 
Comments: This is written just as it was Oct. 18, 1918 in Greenville, Tennessee (except I used modern abbreviations some) My great-great grandfather Charles Howard was with Gen. George Washington, from commencement to close of the Revolutionary War as his body guard. He settled in Surry County, North Carolina. I do not know who he married. I only know of three children. Two girls and one boy. Later Charles Howard moved to Tennessee and settled on Lick Creek. One of the girls m: a Jones and one married a Dobbins. The son Abram (my great grandfather) was the only son. He disliked Tennessee and ran away and went back to Surry Co. NC to a Howard uncle he had out there. He was then about 12 years old. He grew to manhood, married and raised a family, but I know nothing of any of them except Charles, my grandfather. He married Jane O'Summers. (there is where we get our Scotch Irish from the O'Summers, they had blue gray eyes and black hair like your grandfather and Uncle Joe .
The Howards are red and sandy and brown-haired and blue eyes. ) To them were eleven children born and reared to manhood and womanhood. Elizabeth (Betsy) m: Greene Whittaker; two children blessed this home: Charles & Rachel Charles married, died and left a large family in lower East Tennessee.  Nancy married John Holder; five children came to their home: Rachel, Mary, William, Gabriel, & John.
William is living in Oklahoma, Gabriel, Rachel (who married a Williams) and John live in Knox County, Tennessee and is a Baptist Minister. Mary died unmarried.  William Howard married Sarah ( Sallie) Taliferio two daughters came to live with them: Mary & Sarah. Mary & Sarah married brothers by the name of Leach. The Leaches are living in Ms/Mo. (cannot read it clearly ) William Howard moved to Missouri/Mississippi ( cannot read it clearly ) and died in about two years. His widow married a man by the name of Peters. John Howard died at the age of 21 unmarried Lonreno Don (or Dow) Howard married, went to Illinois then to Mississippi, he had a large family, but I don't remember who he married, nor any of the children’s names except the oldest son was William Lancaster Howard that married ?, settled in Knox County, Tennessee and raised three children: Phoebe, Abra and Eliza They are in Knox County near Concord.  **Thomas
Jeff erson Howard married Lucinda Blair. Two children blessed this home: John and Mary Jane. Uncle Tom and wife have passed over the river, the children live in Grason County, Virginia. Jane and Rachel Howard were twins.  Jane married Tillery O'Summers They had one child a daughter. don't know where she is , they lived and died in Knox County. Rachel married Thomas Nichols, lived and died in Anderson County, Tennessee, they had no children.  Our grandfather, Charles Howard, after his children were all grown and most of them were married moved from Surry County, North Carolina to Knox County, Tennessee.  Eventually most of his children settled around him. They were not wealthy, but owned their homes and were good livers. Mary Howard, one of the dearest good women of earth and my fathers sister, died unmarried. Abram Wesley Howard married Mary Margaret Weaver and settled in Greenville, Tenn. To them nine children came: Nancy Caroline (stillborn) Mary Jane, now living in Oklahoma. Martha Elizabeth Rachel, living in Greenville, Tennessee. Tillman Abram, burned to cinders in a Railroad disaster at Ashtabula Ohio in 1873 Charles George, sleeping in Oak Grove Cemetery Greenville, Tennessee.  Nathaniel G. Taylor, and Joseph Wesley both living in Greenville, Tennessee. Aunt Mary (Polly) and father should have come in just after Uncle Charlie L. and just before Uncle Tom J., but I was interrupted and made me forget. This is badly done, but it is true history and as far as I know and you can write it off nice when you get ready. For Joe Jr., son of the 3rd Charles Howard from Aunt Mattie on.

== Howard, Lewis Whitfield.....Lawyer
From New Hanover co.: Hampstead: b Topsail Sound. June 1, 1833: d. Oct. 26, 1897;
A.B 1857; civil engineer.; fruit grower; farmer; 1st. Lieut. C.S. A. co. " A " 41st reg.
CAMP HEATH
Co. A, 41st Regiment N.C.T. (3rd Regiment N.C. Cavalry)
This company, originally known as "Rebel Rangers", was enlisted at Scotts Hill, New Hanover County, beginning October 1, 1861, for twelve months service. The original recruits were principally from New Hanover County. (Before Pender was est.) The company was organized under an act passed by the confederate Congress, dated August 21, 1861, for local defense and special service. The company’s special service was to guard the coastline of New Hanover County, and it became known as "Newkirk`s
Coast Guard" after the first captain. The company was mustered into Confederate States service October 18, 1861, and remained in New Hanover County. On March 13th, 1862, the company reorganized, and by act of the Confederate Congress, dated April 16, 1862, the period of enlistment was automatically extended from twelve months to three years or the war.  Throughout this period the company remained in the District of the Cape Fear encamped at Camp Heath, Scotts Hill, performing the duties of
scouting and patrolling.
On September 3, 1862 the company was assigned to the 41st Regiment N.C. Troops (3rd Regiment N.C. Cavalry) and became Company A of that regiment.  Even after the assignment the company remained independent and was not ordered to the regiment until April 1863. The company’s activities after September 3, 1862 are recorded in the regimental history since it was officially a part of the regiment.
Although there are no Roll of Honor records for this company, useful information was obtained from receipt rolls, medical records, prisoner of war records, and other primary records, supplemented by state pension applications, United Daughters of the Confederacy records, and postwar rosters and histories.....
My Great Grandfather: Lewis Whitfield Howard of above......
HOWARD, LEWIS W. 2nd Lieutenant
Resided in New Hanover County where he enlisted May 12, 1862 for the Mustered in as Private and elected 3rd lieutenant September 5th 1862 and appointed to rank from that date.  Promoted to 2nd Lieutenant September 12, 1863. Wounded in action near Petersburg Va., June 21 1864 and reported as absent wounded until discharged on January 22, 1865. Paroled at Greensboro, N.C. in 1865.
(Lewis Whitfield`s horse was killed, and he was hit in the leg/hip region.)  The duty was protecting the Weldon Railroad Terminal......The skirmish was with Col. Barlow`s troops........
The following is a letter written from Robert E. Lee, to Sec. of War for the Confederacy the Hon. James A. Seddon, Sec: HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA
June 22, 1864
Since Friday last there has been skirmishing along the lines in front of Bermuda Hundred and around Petersburg. The Federal army appears to be concentrated at these two places, and is strongly entrenched. 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 a 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 stands of colors and a large number of small arms were captured.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
R.E. LEE, General.

== Hereward, "The Saxon", was an 11th century Saxon outlaw and the hero of many legends. He was later called Hereward the "Wake". He led the Saxon revolt against William the Conqueror on the island of Eli in 1070-1071 and , with the assistance of the Danes, plundered Peterborough Abby. After William’s methodical assaults won the island, Hereward distinguished himself by a dramatic escape. According the one account he was subsequently pardoned by William.
Legends and ballads relating He reward’s exploits against the Normans were popular in England and formed the basis of Charles Kingsley’s novel..."He reward the Wake" (1866)
He reward "The Wake" and the first of what was to become Howard, of England, was the father of Lord Leofrick. Hereward, who married "Lady Godiva".
Godiva, Lady....(died in 1086), English countess renowned in folklore for riding naked through the marketplace at Coventry. Godiva, more properly Godifu ( meaning "gift of God), first appears in English
sources about 1028, when, ill and near death, she donated as estate to the abbey of Elf. She apparently recovered and married Leofric(k) He reward, the Earl of Leicester.
The earliest account of Godiva’s ride comes from the chronicler Roger of Windover (died 1236), who relates that the countess appealed to her husband to remit the heavy taxes imposed on Coventry, Wearied by her pleas, Leaflike promised to comply if she would ride nude through the town. Having let down her hair so that only her beautiful legs showed Godiva mounted a horse and made the journey . Later accounts mention that Godiva had ordered everyone to remain indoors with windows shut and one
version that she was seen by "Peeping Tom" (its where we get the name".)  There were no factual basis for Godiva’s ride and no contemporary evidence that she ever visited Coventry, but historically she was
remembered as a patroness of monasteries and churches.....Leofrick, and Godiva, were from the area, to become Norfolk England at a later date....Where the Howards came later from, as the name was later to
become de Hayward....and later still normanized to Howard.....And yes all of the aforementioned were grandfathers, and grandmother of we later Howards from originally Schleswig, in German Hereward the Saxon was in England from, Germany during the "Rein of King Edgar" 957-973...
Godiva and Leofrick were the parents of Hereward "The Banished" who lived at Wigenhall-Torrington, in Norfolk, England. His son was ??  Hereward; who had a son Robert Hereward, who had a John Hereward, who was the father of William de Hayward, who had changed the name during this time, and was the "Chief Justice of Common Pleas"......And then we progress, or degress into the name Howard with the entry of de Haywards son.....John Howard....John was married to Lucy Germond...Time frame is 1297-1308 and after.....William de Hayward was married twice to Alice Ufford, but it is believed that John is the 2nd wife Alice Fillen`s son.........John Howard married Joan de Corwall......Sir Robert Howard married Margaret Scales....Sir John Howard married twice Margaret Plaiz, and Alice Tendering (My grandmother).......Sir Robert Thomas Howard married Lady Margaret Mowbray....and the first Duke of Norfolk in the Howard family started here with the loss of the title by the Mowbray`s.....Duke John Howard married Katherine  Moyleyns........and the 2nd Duke was Lord Thomas Howard who married to Lady Margaret Douglas........My (Roland J. Howard ) line is thru a younger son and brother to Thomas the third Duke
of Norfolk...Robert Howard who married Phillipa Buxton.....and his son was John Howard who married to Elizabeth Lock......James Francis Howard was married to Mary Warren.......and in 1656 their son James Obadiah, and his son James who married a Sarah Titus came to America......and thus my line sprung from here.......John and Frances Denson (Onslow)....James Howard and Hester Moore to Fredericks Creek in today Pender Co. (Virginia Creek)....James Whitfield Howard and Mary Leith who bought today Hampstead.....Grovedere Plantation......Lewis Whitfield, and Rachel Mallard...He was in Civil War, and wounded at Petersburg in June 21, 1864....A graduate Lawyer of the University of North Carolina , Chapel
Hill.....Bernard, was married to Eliza Lenora Smithwick....Roland Bernard married Opal Louise Reeves of Lake Junaluska N.C......and Roland Jackson Howard, (yours truly) married Joan Jarrett of Early County
Georgia........My son Roland J. Jr. has 5 children....1 girl and 4, forever to be......Howard.......Gods been good to me...

== I would like to "request" that all of those Howard`s out there who are interested in Genealogy.......and would like to continue communicating to keep: jack822@juno , in mind and lets keep "A look'n......I have gotten several good "pushes" in the right direction through the Association... in completing my 28th Generation back to England. My line first entered around Norwich, in Norfolk Co. (Hereward), and the "name normanized" thru (one generation in my case), deHayward, and into today.. Howard. Some of the Herewards still are in Germany, and Haywards aroung the world, and there around Schleswig too. Schleswig is located... on about, the North Sea Area, near Denmark. Right across the North Sea, and slightly south, just to the North of London is Norfolk Co., and the shores of the North Sea, where all of our ancestors landed during the 5th and 6th centuries and they had been known to have been in Germany since the 3rd and 4th centuries. The migrations of the "Sachsens"(German) , and specifically, the name Howard. (Hereward "The Saxon), arrived, or his ancestors prior) . He was living in England, in the Norfolk Co. area during the "Rein of King Edgar", of England......957-973....
We all sprang from this line, and probably , came to America about the same time.....thru Virginia, or New England...... during the 1600`s.....
My first ancestor in America was the son of Francis James Howard and wife Mary Warren, who lived in Norwich England.... James Obadiah Howard, and Son, James that married Sarah Titus. Both were on the ship, as Sarah and her father Thomas were .......This James and Sarah landed at Port Tobacco Va., and came through Kingsale Va., and after a short stay in Nansemond Co. Va. settled in Bertie County, on "Cooneriscratt and Ahorsky Swamps....Ahoskie N.C. today, where both the son and father are  burried....and on down 11 generations for me and to my grandchildren.....I have this info, and brothers and sisters of all of the 28 generations, and will be glad to share this information with all of the Howards who would ask.......
We had but a couple of grandaddys who had aquired the title of "Dukes of Norfolk", as "my" Robert, the son of the second Duke of Norfolk, was a younger son, and the older son Thomas became the third Duke of Norfolk, that had come through the Mowbray family.The Howard`s are still the premier Dukes of Norfolk today, and cousins "Wayback" of most all of us.... My line of Robert and Phillipa Buxton, were the parents of John, married to Elizabeth Lock, who were the parents of Francis James, and Mary Warren.......And then comes the America migration in the 1600`s, and most of you cousins, who "lost out"..........on the title of Duke, or Dutchess.........

Ms. Jenny......I still make a few "Genie Sticks" (you explain), and give them away if I have the genealogy.....to those who ask........as long as I can..........and Jenny......I am going to miss your HFA news, that you have so kindly sent me on e-mail......and I again thank you for such splendid and enthusiast job done!!!

NOTE FROM EDITOR: The Genie Sticks that Jack speaks of above are the most creative and wonderful thing that I have ever had given to me. He has taken a piece of wood and my genealogical line on it (What I know of it that is). He added covered wagons and flags. All I can say is that Jack is a very special and creative man who has added joy to my life. Thanks Jack for being you.

== I am trying to trace some Howard relatives in the United States. My great-great uncle Matthew Howard emigrated to the United States in 1894. He went as a coachman for Rudyard Kipling to Vermont. He eventually took his wife and 8 children over and when Kipling fell out with his in-laws and returned to England, the Howards remained behind and became American citizens.  Matthew was the publican of the golden lion public house at over, Winsford Cheshire before he went to the states and before that he was the coachman at Darnhall Hall.
His father was William Howard of Hartford. His younger brother Richard was my great grandfather.
Matthew’s wife was Elizabeth W. Howard born Liverpool, and his children included William (1881), J. W. (1880) and 6 others. My mother remembers that during the 2nd war an American cousin came to visit the Howard family. He was a doctor who had studied at either Yale or Harvard and she thinks that his family lived in Long Island N.Y. I would love to contact any members of the family as I have a lot of information on family history.
