William H Howard
Birth: May, 1853
Death: 1921

My great-great Uncle. Son of Abner Howard & Mary Ellen Willoby (parents married October 30, 1850 in Brown Co., OH).

Married Catherine Elmina "El" Pittman, April 1878 in Miami Co., KS.

1880 Jefferson, Brown Co., OH census:
Mary E. (head) 60 b KY, Widow
Children: William H. 27, Eldora 24, Abraham L. 21.

Maybe Uncle Howard & Aunt El divorced is the reason he is listed as being single on the above census and why he is listed as having been married for 13 years with Mary on the 1900 census.

Married Mary Francis Lowry, July 13, 1886 in Brown Co., OH.

1900 Jefferson, Brown Co., OH census:
William (head) May 1853 47 b OH,
