RE: david boyd
John- Thanks for responding.I see where you have pictures of Mourning Garrett Howell, Doctor Collin Howell and Isabelle Howell Boyd.I am new to this undertakeing but enjoying it very much. If you can help me I would appreciate it.My mother died in 2009. She was Betty Gene Boyd Enoch, born in 1923 to David L. Boyd Jr (buried in Green Hills Cemetary) and Marion Curtis Lee. D.L. Boyd Jr is the son of D.L. Boyd Sr who was married to Isabelle Howell daughter of Doctor Collin Howell who was a son of Henry Howell. We must be related along this path and any information regarding these people or additional pictures would be appreciated beyong belief. I was in Waynesville and Ashville on Saturday, Sunday and Monday looking up information and I did find the Boyd cemetary in Jonathan Creek. If you would like to call me my cell phone number is 615-939-2617. PS- I have a family picture of David Boyd and Isabelle with their one child,David Jr. You may want a copy.

Howell/Boyd
Isabelle Howell Boyd is my great grandmother on my mothers side, which makes David L. Boyd, her husband my great grand father. I currently live in Nashville and am most interested in talking with you if that is possible. I plan on staying in Waynesville NC on Saturday and Sunday night. I have some good pictures of David Boyd and his family. Do you live in the Waynesville area?

Mary Catherine Miller Howell
For DAR purposes, I have to have documentation of Mary Miller Howell's birth and death dates. They are not given on her grave marker. Would/could you share your source for her dates with me?

Thank you,
Margaret M. Teal
for Mary Frances Prebeck, a direct descendant of Joseph Howell.

RE: isaac
Sorry to have been so long in responding. I did most of my research on Joseph and Eleanor Garmon Howell in the latter part of the 1990's. Since then, I've have several computer crashes, the last one being the only one that I could recover the lost data on. Most of what I have, therefore, is on hard copy and not readily handy.

I have seen the 1930 census you mentioned. I have that Eleanor died in 1795 in Cabarrus County well before the family moved to Georgia. If this is correct, the female mentioned could not have been her. I have Joseph's birth as 1733, which would mean that he was about 97 at the time of this census. It is the concensus among family researchers that I've talked to about this that the female is one of his daughters. I no longer have online the information from his first marriage, so have not tried to verify this.

Clark's research has us descended from John Howell, brother of Hopkins Howell, who was granted a land grant in 1639, Isle of Wight, Virginia. His son John, to his son Joseph, who ended up in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. Joseph's son, Joseph, married Esther Sugg. When she was killed, he sold his lang and moved to the Cabarrus county area of North Carolina with his mother. Joseph donated the land for the building of the city of Tarboro.

One researcher in the 1990's had us descended from the New Jersey Howell's, coming by ship to South Carolina and into Georgia from there. And there was mention of two other branches of Howell's who came south through inland Virginia.

The Clark Howell line is still the most likely. One researcher in the 1990's had an aunt who had gone to the various courthouses and sifted through documents to verify the information. She was a descendent of Joseph and Esther Sugg Howell. The line from John Howell 1639 to Joseph and Esther, therefore, is pretty solid. Our Joseph and Margaret Garmon Howell with move to Georgia is pretty strong. It's the move from Edgecombe County to Cabarrus County area that is the weak link. However, the Edgecombe Joseph and the Cabarrus Joseph both ran ferries.

Where did you find the information on Joseph's death being in DeKalb County? Atlanta proper is in what is now Fulton County; Cobb is due west, just across the Chattahoochee River; DeKalb is due east (Decatur is in DeKalb); and Gwennett is northeast (where Evan settled and is buried). Campbell county is no longer a county in Georgia, but covered parts of Cobb and Fulton.

Sorry I couldn't have been more help to you. And yes, I did see the memorial with picture of Henry Howell.

RE: isaac howell 25 dec 1784-9nov 1860
John,

So nice to meet you; it is always good to meet new family.

In answer to your first question, the North Carolina marriage information online has the marriage between Isaac Howell and Margaret Tucker listed as Nov. 4, 1805 in Cabarrus County. Some of the records from that period have Howell spelled with one "l" and some with two. I don't remmember which the marriage info is under. I originally found it at genealogy.com, but Ancestry has bought them, so it should be there as well.

Your second question was concerning Joseph. No, I don't have any proof that he is buried in the Howell Cemetery, Cobb County, Georgia. At one point, I had the listing of those receiving land in the Land Lotteries of 1827 and 1832, land that was aquired by the state of Georgia from the indians. Joseph and Isaac were both listed as receiving lands. Until Gladys listed his grave as being in the Howell family cemetery, I was under the impression that the oldest grave there was Isaac's. There is no marker, so if he is buried there, he is in an unmarked grave. I personally think he is buried elsewhere, probably closer to Roswell or Smyrna--both were originally Campbell County--but I have no proof of this either.

Henry was one of the children who remained in North Carolina. I have some information on him, but not a lot. When I first started researching upline, the information was very "muddy". There was Clark Howell's book, then there were two or three other possible lines and researchers were picking up info and mixing it all up.

Feel free to write me at my email address. I've been working with a distant cousin in Georgia to try to replace the missing tombstone pictures (they all were taken down several years ago, but not sure why) for the Howell family cemetery. We have also been trying to find the relationship of each person buried there to Isaac. It's been quite interesting!

Have a wonderful Easter.

Isaac Howell
I noticed you put flowers on Isaac's memorial page. Are you a relative? Isaac was my great-great-grandfather on my Dad's side of the family.

Joseph Franklin McCracken
John, Terry said he believes Joe lost his arm when he was feeding into an oldtime feed cutter and it caught his arm and pulled it in. Terry has only once seen that type of feed cutter. Joe was in the Civil War, and Terry thinks he once owned land across from the Pilot Truckstop on 1-40, up where the Woodbine Acres deveopment is. He isn't positive, but has always thought he lived in that area. I have posted the photo that I told you about on his memorial. The one for Julia is already on her memorial.
