Elizabeth Muse was born in North Carolina (1850 San Augustine Co. TX census). Elizabeth Muse married (1) Benjamin Franklin Howard (or Harwood) who was born about 1807. They were married Jan. 31, 1830 or 1831 in Madison Co, TN. The Howard family moved to Texas before the Texas Revolutionary War. B.F. Howard served in the Texas Revolution. According to a land grant record, he came to Texas in 1835.
Benjamin Franklin Howard and Elizabeth Muse had one child:
George Washington Howard, born about 1834 (1850 and 1860 census) or 1832 (Howard family history and Civil War records) in TN. He married Sereptha Williams, born in Feb 1822 in AL. Sereptha had first married Thomas Watts, Jr. (1822-1849). Follow the link below to George Washington Howard.
B.F. Howard and Elizabeth Muse separated. One family history account says that B.F. Howard left his family and was reported dead. Records show that he was still living in 1865 and possibly 1874 or later. For more on the Howard family, see micspoon.tripod.com/nti/nti11685.html .
