1883 History of Hardin County
He was again married April 9, 1872 to Mrs. Sarah J. Buckingham, whose maiden name was Howell, a native of Orange County, New York and daughter of Lewis and Sarah Ann (Anway) Howell. The ancestry of both the Howells and Anways came from Wales and were among the first settlers of Long Island. Her grandfather, Anway and his three sons were all soldiers in the Revolutionary War and Mrs. B. has now a bill of the old Continental money in which the soldiers received their pay dated 1776. Her father, Lewis Howell was born in Florida, Orange County, New York. Mr. Howell came to Iowa and settled west of Point Pleasant in this county in 1857. Miss Howell having some experience in teaching in her native country engaged in teaching three weeks after landing here. She taught the first school in Tipton Township, in a temporary log shanty or pre-emption cabin through the cracks of which the pestering little prairie snakes would frequently crawl. This was then the only school in all the southwest part of the county embracing what is now the townships of Tipton, Sherman, Grant and Concord, there being no settlement for twenty miles west or southwest. There are now in those townships thirty-three (33) good and well furnished school houses, besides the fine new graded school building at Hubbard.
