Hello Duane Howell,

I am a descendant of Adelaide Howell, the child of Sydney and Lucy Howell of Hams Bay. Adelaide was my great grandmother. She was the mother of my grandfather Ludvig Emanuel Hansen as well several other siblings whom she had with one Hans Hansen. I know very little about my great grandmother other than her name and the names of her children. She was a washer and lived and worked near the barracks in Christiansted where she must have met my great grandfather Hans. He apparently was a sargent in the military. I know nothing about him except his name. I would love to know more about the Howell part of my family. I live in St. Croix part time now and I am trying to do some research on this topic.I have not spent a lot of time on this website but I did find my great grandmother's family with the names you have listed. I did meet a couple of my Howell relatives at a family reunion years ago but that was long before I had access to most of the information I can see online now. I would love to hear from you. Sincerely, Julie
