Alston Hunter Greene Howell was the youngest of eleven children born to Isaac and Margaret (Tucker) Howell. He grew up in Campbell (now Cobb) County, Georgia, during the early years.
He married Nancy A. Sewell, daughter of Samuel and Lucy (Trimble) Sewell. They had eight children:
Lora E. Howell (1858- )
M. L. C. Howell (1859- )
Q. Victoria Howell (1862- )
John Howell (1866- )
Jno. Amattha Howell (1867- )
Leodah Cumi Howell (1868-1868)
Chappell H. P. Howell (1873- )
Anna Celota Howell (1877- )
Alston was a farmer and Nancy kept house. By 1880, the family had a farm near Adamsville, Fulton County, Georgia, and he was also the post master. Two of Alston and Nancy's daughters, Lora and Kitty (M. L.) were separated from their husbands and were living with them along with their children. Lora had two sons: Ovid Oscar Adams (1875-1972) and William Hunter Adams (1877- ). Kitty had one daughter: Linda B. Kennedy (1877- ). This made for a busy household.
On 11 October 1883, Alston lost Nancy. Some of the children were still very young, so on 11 Sept. 1888, Alston married Sarah E McGriff. This union produced one child, Shaler H. A. Howell (1889-1957).
Alston passed on 13 May 1908 and is buried next to Nancy and their child Leodah Cumi Howell in the Mount Gilliad Methodist Church Cemetery.
