Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 13, 1721
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Apr., 1777
East Poultney
Rutland County
Vermont, USA

Son of Peter Howe and Grace Bush. Served in the Revolutionary War.
Husband of Beulah "Betsey" Wheeler, whom he married on March 4 1747, in Bolton, Worcester, MA, and with whom he had nine children: Abner, Olive, Phebe, Beulah, Peter, Candis, Phebe2, John and Joel Howe.
No gravestone. "The small 'Ward' Cemetery on Finel Hollow road, is located on the old Nehemiah How homestead. Nehemiah died in 1777 and it is supposed that he and his wife Betsey . . . are buried here, but no stones mark the spot . . . There are numerous slate slabs which probably mark graves."
