Birth: Sep. 15, 1826
Death: Jan. 9, 1899
Plymouth
Plymouth County
Massachusetts, USA

Son of John Howland and
his 2nd wife Nancy (Lucas).
Charles married first in
Plymouth, Betsey L. Morton
on Nov. 28, 1850. He married
second Eunice B. Finney on
Nov. 30, 1869 in Plymouth.

HON. CHARLES H. HOWLAND, Republican,
house painter, of Plymouth, was born
in that town Sept. 15, 1826, and received
a common school education. He was first
Lieutenant and Regimental Quartermaster
in the Thirty-fourth Massachusetts Regiment,
and acting Assistant Quartermaster three
years during the war. He was a member of
the House in 1860, '79, '80, and '84, and
among the committees on which he served
were those on the Fisheries, on Prisons
and on Labor. He was House Chairman of the
Prison Committee last year, and appointed
Chairman of Committee to examine the whole
subject of Reformatory Prison Discipline,
Buildings, Industry, Education and
Classification, to sit during the vacation
and report to the next Legislature. His
committee visited all the public penal
institutions, embodying the results of
their extended observations in the able
and exhaustive report, which gave to the
State the Concord and Sherborn Male and
Female Reformatories. Capt. Howland was
appointed by Gov. Robinson to the Board
of Harbor Commissions, over great com-
petition at the close of his term. His
life-long experience in local study of
riparian and marine titles, rights and
privileges, gives him exceptional facilities
for sound and judicious consideration of
the varied important questions within the
jurisdiction of the Board.
