Since this posting, I have gathered a lot of data from my uncle in michigan and numerous e-mails regarding my lineage. Elijah Howard was born about 1873 and he was the son of John C. "JC or JJC" Howard/Idress Howard Elijah married Elizabeth Forrester (d/o John Wesley Forrester/Matilda Howard). "JC" and Idress divorced. Idress was the d/o John Covey Howard,Jr/Mary "Polly" Morris. "JC" was the s/o William Slusher "Big Bill" Howard and Elizabeth Green. "Big Bill" was the s/o Benjamin Howard(brother to John Covey "Warjack" Howard, Sr)/Phoebe Slusher. Benjamin Howard was the s/o Thomas Howard/Lettie Durham. Thomas was the s/o John Howard/Kathrine unknown. John Howard was born in Nanesmond County, VA and died in 1772 in Bute County, NC. He was the Justice Of Peace in Onslow, NC 1739-1751. John was the s/o James Howard(born about 1660)/Sarah Titus. James was the son of Francis Howard(born about 1630)/unknown wife. Francis was from England.
I do not yet have Francis Howard's spouse's name, parent's names or siblings names. I am still searching for that info. If anyone has found it before I have, they can e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
. I would sure love to know. I have been told that the Howard's can be traced back to English Royalty (Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard, wives of Henry VIII)...I am out to prove/disprove that tale. Either way, I would love to know.
Thanks for your help,
