Caroline C Burson Howle
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 10, 1850
Cherokee County
Alabama, USA
Death: Sep. 27, 1894
Tallapoosa County
Alabama, USA

Caroline Burson was the daughter of David Lawson & Celia Ann McInish Burson. According to U. S. Census records for 1850, she was born in Cherokee County, Alabama in June of that year, which, if accurate, would make her tombstone birth date incorrect. She was married to Blount Hampton Howle on March 24, 1872 at the home of her father in Elmore County. Her mother was already deceased. Her husband's initials are incorrect on her tombstone, written as "B. W." instead of "B. H." Caroline passed away after suffering from uterine cancer for several months. Blount remarried to Emma Carleton in 1895.

Caroline and Blount were members of the County Line Baptist Church of Christ, located in the extreme NE corner of Elmore County.

"Souls of the blest, from the mansions of day,
Look on the pilgrim and lighten her way,
Wing your swift flight to the tomb of the dead,
And with visions of glory circle her head.
May her six children follow the path she weekly trod,
and reach the home she rests in now,
and dwell, like her, with God"

-Written by a friend, and
part of her funeral service


PHOTO LEGEND: The family of Blount Hampton, Sr. and Caroline Burson Howle. Photo by Richard Jackson Boyett of Birmingham, taken about 1890-1891. L-R: James Thomas Howle, Caroline, with Blount Hampton Howle Jr. in her lap, Victoria Howle, Blount Hampton Howle, Sr. with Maude in his lap, Izora Texas Howle. Not pictured: Blount and Caroline's oldest son, Ernest Oliver Howle. The young lady standing middle rear is unknown, but believed to possibly be Mary Ella Howle, Blount's niece, the daughter of his brother George M. Howle.

Caroline's eyes were blue. This was a common occurrence in the family.

Blount Hampton Howle remarried the year after Caroline's passing. His new wife was Emma Calhoun Carleton. Blount left Tallapoosa County late in the summer of 1901, headed west to Oklahoma to take part in the second Land Rush. After he was situated, Emma joined him, about 1903.

I do wish you had left us a message what the other "c" in your name stood for! Perhaps Celia?
