Birth: May 18, 1871
New Jersey, USA
Death: Jul. 18, 1929
Monmouth County
New Jersey, USA

Catharine Ader Clawson was born on May 18, 1871 the daughter of William Clawson (Clausen) and Mary M. Ader. Catharine was most likely born in Washington township, Morris County, New Jersey but I have no written proof for that. Moses and Catharine were married by Isaac D. Horton. The couple had five children listed below in the order of their births:

William Cleveland Howell, Sr.
June 23, 1889 - March 21, 1941

Mary Jane Howell Frace Anderson
May 15, 1890 - May 19, 1982

Grace Mae Howell Burd
June 6, 1893 - December 9, 1985

Mabel Florence Howell Van Pelt
February 24, 1897 - February 27, 1983

Ervilla Ethel Howell Fislter
March 22, 1903 - February 6, 1985

The family homestead was located in Washington Township, Morris County, New Jersey in German Valley (now Long Valley). The homestead remained in the family till 1955 when it was sold. In the valley the family church was the First Presbyterian Church of Fairmont, New Jersey. As a child Ervilla Ethel (Howell) Fisler could remember their minister as being the Rev. Baker Smith. She spoke extremely well of him and says he would come and ride the family to church whenever there was bad weather.

Moses Howell supported his family by working on a farm owned by a neighbor down the road from the homestead. On the homestead the family is said to have had a cow and raised guiney hens, but only for family use. Moses Frederick Howell died on November 18, 1951 in Belford, New Jersey in the home of his daughter Ervilla Ethel Howell Fisler. Catharine Ader Clawson Howell died on July 18, 1929 in the home of her daughter Ervilla Ethel Howell Fisler in Matawan, New Jersey, of stomach cancer. Bedle Funeral Home was ahead of her funeral and Scott Funeral Home of Belford, New Jersey was ahead of Moses burial. The 1910 Census list Catharine Howell as having given birth to five children and that all 5 were still alive which rules out any stillbirths and/or infant deaths unless they occured after 1910.

In should be noted that Moses and Catherine raised two of their granddaughters. Olive Sarah Burd Applegate and Elizabeth Hazel Frace Hoffman
