  • Notes 
    • Note: There are two histories below by Havilah Howell Mapp

      L. Barlow's extracts from "A Brief Record of Ancestral History" by Mrs. Havilah Howell Mapp of White Plains, Georgia - A copy in the posession of Mrs. Henry Reid, Athens, Ga.:

      "My parents, John Johnson Howell and Elmina McBride Howell, were married in the town of Perry Houston County, Ga, in 1832.  My father was the son of Mckinney Howell, and his wife who was Mary Johnson, daughter of John and Elizabeth Johnson whose maiden name was Ashfeldt (Ashfield) ----

      John Johnson Howell was born December 25, 1810; died January 19, 1858. He died in the old home place in the same room in which his father, McKinney Howell had died in the year 1851. And his mother also had died in this same room on November 26, 1856.  He was buried with them at the Johnson place.

      Matthew, William, Joseph and McKinney Howell came to Georgia from North Carolina.  Matthew remained a batchelor and accumulated considerable property.  William did not like Georgia and went to Alabama.  Joseph married and was the father of Abram and Issac and their sister, Nancy Howell who married a man named Nelms.

      McKinney Howell married Mary Johnson and they were the parents of Matthew Cavenah Howell and John Johnson Howell.

      Matthew C. Howell married Sarah Simonton and to htem were born two children, Samuel Armstrong Howell and Mary Jane Howell who was an infant when her father died.  He was only 22 years of age when his death occured.  He was buried at the family burial ground of the old Johnson place in Taliaferro County.  His widow and his son & daughter, Mary Jane Moore, are buried in the White Plains Cemetery.

      Macy Johnson Howell was the daughter of John Johnson and his wife who was Elizabeth Ashfield, pronounced Askfield, and they were the parents of John, Silas, Frederick, Ashfield, William, Samuel, Mary, Susan, Elizabeth and Hannah Johnson.

      Matthew Cavenah Howell was named for his uncle Matthew and his grandmother whose maiden name was Cavenah.  He married Sarah Simonton and they were the parents of Samuel Armstron and Mary Jane Howell.

      Matthew C. Howell was born December 30, 1807 and died August 15, 1834.  Sarah Maria Simonton Howell was born December 27, 1813 and died August 14, 1855.  Samuel Armstrong Howell was born October 22, 1832 and died September 30, 1864.  Mary Jane Howell was born May 22, 1834 and died June 15, 1869; She married Dr. Isaac Moore on January 15, 1852 and they were the parents of eight children - Alfred, Matthew, Emma, Sallie, Claudia, Annie, Blanche, and Isaac Moore."


      A Short History of the Howell and Johnson Lineage, by Villa Howell Mapp cir. 1890

      "Many years ago came the Howell family from North Carolina, who settled in Georgia.  Matthew Howell, Sr. and wife, whose maiden name was Ascenton? Cavenough and their five sons, Matthew, McKinney, Isaac, Joseph and William.  Only one daughter Nancy who married Nelms, and was mother of James, Martha and Antoinet Nelms.  As this family lived in the Crawfordville precinct our family saw them frequently.  I remember them all quite well, especially James and Martha.  Cousin Jim married Minerva Hilsman and cousin Martha married Bert Alexander. Antoinette married Dr. Nicholson.  Cousin Martha's last husband was Mr. Davenport who lived in south Ga.

      My grandfather McKinny married Mary Johnson, daughter of John Johnson, and wife's maiden name was Ashfeldt - German extraction NB Elizabeth Howell Traver notes: The Johnson Cousins say this is not so - that the Johnsons came from Scotland originally - Mary "Polly" Johnson had red hair

      My Howell grandfather's brothers, Wm and Isaac soon went to Alabama, and William changed to some other state.  Isaac used to visit my father and was an exceedingly entertaining and gentlemanly visitor.  He married a sister of Alfred Davis.

      My grandmother Mary Johnson Howell whose mother was Ashfeld, had five brothers, John, Silas, who lived in Newlou? and Morgan counties, Samuel and William, Taliaferro Co., Frederick.  Five sisters - Mary Howell Green Co., Susan Slaughter, Forsyth, Ga., Catherine Parker, Ren? Elizabeth Cain"


      From William Heard Kilpatrick notes from a book which belonged to his father:
      "Villa [Howell] Mapp born 7 July 1845."

      In the 1850 census of Hancock Co., she appears age 4 living with her parents.  The "Overseer" of the house was Moore Mapp, age 60.

      Her sister Austria married James H. Mapp (her husbands brother) [15, 21, 22]
