  • Notes 
    • Notes from Albert Sidney Howell, Jr.:

      "..lived about 2 miles Northeast of White Plains, Georgia in Greene County."
      "..both were members of Richland Creek Church, before 1819 (from the White Plains Baptist Church rolls). Both were buried at the Johnson Home Place, in Taliaferro County, Georgia. (was part of Hancock County before 1825.)

      From Julia Dyar:

      "His [meaning John Johnson Howell's] father was John McKinney Howell who married Mary Johnson.  They lived at Mecklenburg, N.C.; later in York, S.C. before coming to Georgia. I have no dates on them at this time.  I do know they had three children, John Johnson Howell, Matthew Howell and Mary Howell."

      From William Heard Kilpatrick notes from a book which belonged to his father:

      "McKinne [jsh: no 'y'] had two sons, Matthew and John."

      From "History of Greene County, Georgia" by Rice and Williams:

      p. 49 "Thomas Hart, the grandfather of Judge John C. Hart, was among the pioneers.  Likewise...... McKinney Howell,.....the Davises, the McWhorters, the Lewises, etc."

      The 1830 Census of Taliaferro Co., GA p 363 appears to show (hard to read his name. Virginia Crilley independently transcribed for USGenWeb)  McKinney Howell, head. 1 male 15-20 (John Johnson Howell would be about 19), 1 male 20-30 (Matthew Cavenah Howell would be about 22), 1 male 40-50 (Mckinney would be 49 in 1830 if born in 1781), 1 female 15-20, 2 females 20-30, 5 male slaves, 8 female slaves. (McKinney's wife Mary would be about 43 and there are no females listed in this age group)

      The Samel Johnson (his brother in law?) family also appears on the same census page. 1 male 15-20, 1 male 30-40 (Saumuel would be ~38), 1 female 70 to 80

      The 1840 Census of Greene Co., GA shows only two Howell families - and they appear on the same page as follows:
      A. "Jno Howell" - Males 1 under 10, 2 5-10, 1 30-40. Females 1 under 5, 2 5-10, 1 10-16, 1 20-30.

      B. "M Howell". males 1 age 50-60 (McKinney would be approx 59). Females, 1 age 20-30 (Sarah Simonton, McKinney's daughter in law and the widow of Mathew C. Howell would be 26 - but her two children do not appear). One female age 50-60 (McKinneys' wife Mary would be 54). 

      The 1850 Census of Greene Co., GA (District 144) shows McKinney Howell, head of household age 69, Mary age 64.  His grandchildren Samuel and Mary Jane Howell are also shown living in the household as is their mother Sarah (Simonton). Sarah is the widow of Matthew C. Howell who died 16 years previously and the daughter in law of McKinney and Mary Howell.

      From: Memoirs of Georgia, Vol. II, Atlanta, Ga., pub. 1895, Georgia: Southern Historical Association
      p. 511-512. 

      (This text relates to W.S. Howell, a great grandson of McKinney Howell, but provides a some good history of the Howell's in Georgia)

      W. S. Howell

      W. S. Howell, an attorney of distinguished ability of Meriwether county, belongs to one of the pioneer families of the state, to which his great- grandfather with five brothers came to North Carolina in the last century. Four of the brothers drifted on with the tide of emigration, but one other remained in Georgia. He was McKinney Howell, one of the earliest settlers of Greene county. His wife was Mary Johnson, and their son, Matthew C. Howell, was born in Greene county in 1812. He married Sarah Simonton, and they also made their home in Greene county, as did their son, Samuel A. Howell. The latter married Georgia Ely (JSH: Eley), a daughter of John W. and Virginia (Baugh) Ely, also residents of Greene county. Mr. Ely was born in North Carolina in 1799. His father, Michael Ely, came to Greene county, Ga., in 1814, where for many years he kept a public inn. The son served in the war of 1836, fought under Gen. Scott, and died in 1885. W.S. Howell, the son of Samuel A. and Georgia (Ely) Howell, was born in Greene county, Jan. 11, 1859, and being reared upon the farm, obtained his first training in the country school; he added to this a course at Dawson institute, White Plains, and finally graduated from Mercer university, Macon, Ga., in 1882. He went to Greeneville and taught for four years, beginning the study of law, to which he devoted himself under the wise supervision of Maj. J.W. Parks, and in 1889 was admitted to the bar. The young attorney has continued in the practice of his profession ever since with ever increasing success. He also carried on a thriving farm, and is a man of high standing among his fellow-citizens. In 1885 Mr. Howell married Miss Hattie Kilpatrick, born in White Plains in 1862, daughter of J.H. and Cornelia (Hall) Kilpatrick; the father was a minister, and president of the Baptist convention of 1894. One child, Cornelia H., was given to Mr. and Mrs. Howell; the latter died in 1886. In 1889 Mr. Howell married Miss Annie Davidson, daughter of Monroe and Reginia (Park) Davidson; the father served in the late war under Gen. Evans. Mrs. Howell was born in Meriwether county in 1866; she is a graduate of Mary Sharp college, Winchester, Tenn. She and Mr. Howell are both members of the Missionary Baptist church. Two children have blessed this union: Samuel M. and William S.

      The following notes from Lundie Barlow's 17 Dec 1944 letter to Sidney Howell:

      "The McKinne Howell who had a deed to 320 acres in Halifax is somewhat of a puzzle.  He could not have been the man who married Mary Johnson for that McKinne was not born until 1781, two years after the date of the deed.  I have assumed that he was a son of the Thomas who died in 1795 and that he died intestate and without issue, his land falling first to his father, then to his brother, Matthew, and later to Matthew's sons, the Georgia Brothers, who sold it in 1806.  But L.L. Knight, in his Georgia Landmarks, stated that McKinne Howell was one of the original settlers of Greene County, Georgia.  This could not have been the McKinney who married Mary Johnson -- this McKinney was only five years old at that time and he was still in North Carolina as late as 1804, eighteen years after Greene County was established.  Possibly the McKinne Howell referred to by Knight was the same man who took title to the land in Halifax, North Carolina in 1779 and then disappeared from that section."

      L. Barlow notes:

      Abstract from page 138 of Halifax County, North Carolins, Deed Book 14. Deed - dated 8 January 1779 - from Lott Pitman and Thomas Pitman of Blanden County, North Carolina - to McKinnie Howell of Halifax County, North Carolina - consideration of L 550 current money of North Carolina - conveying 320 acres of land on north side of Beach Swamp, in Halifax County, adjoining land of Pope, part of a tract granted to Colonel William Whitehead by patent, date unknown, and conveyed by said Whitehead to Thomas Pitman, deceased, by deed dated 21 August 1739 and devised by said Thomas Pitman, deceased, and being the tract or plantation whereon Thomas Howell now livees - witnessed by Samuel Pitman, Lacy Simmons, and John Pitman - proved by oath of Lacy Simmons at Halifax County Court held February 1779.

      The following notes from T. Bargeron:

      CHILDREN-SPOUSE: Ancestors of Lillian Dell Moore (Bargeron) as shown on an old chart that was found in her possessions after she died. It is believed that this chart was prepared by Lundie Barlow (her brother-in-law who was an accomplished genealogist). This chart was probably written in the 1960s. The originial is in the possession of Tommy Bargeron, 721 West 12th Street, Tifton, Georgia.

      CENSUS-RESIDENCE: Alvin Mell Lunceford, Jr.,  The Reprint Company, 1988, page 48. The 1827 Militia List for Taliaferro County in GMD 608, Captain Alford's District, list MacKinney Howell as head of household with 1 male under 18, 1 male 18-45, one over 45, 1 female under 14, 2 females 18-45, and 14 slaves.

      CENSUS: 1830 Census of Taliaferro County, Georgia, records McKinney Howell who had 3 males, 3 females, 13 slaves, and 1 male free person of color (page 363).

      I am trying to locate more information on McKinney Howell. He came from NC, with his four brothers, (suspect they were Hezekiah, Meshack, and Joseph) and I suspect that his father was Joseph HOWELL,Sr.

      Mckinney was born in 1781, and settled in Greene Co, he died after 1850
      likely in White Plains.  He married Mary JOHNSON born 1786, she also died after 1850. His two known children include Matthew C. Howell,
      died 1834 in Taliaferro Co, and John Johnson HOWELL. Does anyone have any additional information on this family,especially any information on his descendants. Thank you, Kevin Stiles
