Birth: 1845
Death: 1926

Married Joseph Stanley Howard on 5 December 1865 in Northampton; she was 20, born England to John & Sarah Shearn.

The 1870 census shows a wife Fannie 25, son Charles 3 and daughter Anna 1

Stanley Howard, overseer in the mill of the Nonotuck silk company of Leeds, met with an accident on Tuesday, which must result fatally. In attempting to cross a bridge in a wagon to which a horse-rake was attached, the rake came in collision with the corner of the bridge, and he was thrown violently to the ground, striking on his head and shoulders with a shock so severe as to part the ligaments of the spinal column just below the base of the neck, causing a total paralysis of the body and limbs. His wife was driving the horse at the time,and he was attempting to guide the rake.
(Springfield Republican, Saturday 6 July 1872, p2 & Boston Traveler, Monday 8 July 1872, p4)

She appears in the 1880 census as a widow with two children, Charles and Ella. Their daughter, Anna, does not appear in the 1880 census; she probably died in infancy. Ella was born 8 months after her father's death.

Married Samuel A Ewing 22 May 1883 in Northampton. Parents listed as Austin & Sarah Shearn.
