Birth: unknown
Death: Jun. 19, 1893
Atchison County
Kansas, USA

The Atchison Daily Champion, Tuesday, 20 June 1893
Henry Howe, father of C. F. and E. W. Howe, died at the residence of E. W. Howe, editor of the Globe, Sunday afternoon, aged 71 years. Interment took place at 4 p.m. yesterday, at Mt. Vernon. The deceased had been a resident of Oklahoma during the past four years, entering that country at the opening, and securing a claim on the border of Oklahoma City, which attracted a large number because of its value. About a year ago he was taken sick, which resulted in cirrhosis of the liver. a few weeks ago he went to Hot Springs, but failing to improve, he came to Atchison a week ago Sunday. Fifty years of his life he was a frontier Methodist preacher. In his younger days he was a circuit rider in Indiana, at the same time opening a farm in the woods near the present town of Treaty. In 1857 he removed to Harrison county, Missouri, where he was active as an abolitionist. In 1859 he had a public debate with a southern Methodist on the question of slavery, and was arrested by the state, charged with exciting the slaves to rebellion. When the trial came on, the Iowa men came over the border, and openly defied the court, and the war put an end to the matter. Later he established a Republican paper, which he edited with a great deal of vigor. Although he suffered intensely, his mind was clear to the last moment, and almost with his last words he reaffirmed his devotion to his religion.
