  • Notes 
    • From a MD or DE newspaper article (clip on file) written cir Dec 1950:

      "page four - 25 Years Ago - News Items Taken From The Journal Of 25 Years Ago This Week"

      "The funeral of Mr. Frederick Howard, who died December 6th, after a lingering illness, was held at the home in Williston, on December 9th, and was largely attended.  Rev. L. I. Tafel, of the New Church, spoke feelingly of the life and character of the deceased.  Mr. Howard was born in England 77 years ago and came to the United States with his parents when a boy of 6.  His family settled in Philadelphia and engaged in the manufacture of plush and other fabric.  When a young man, Mr. Howard came to Caroline, where he married Miss Sarah Priscilla Andrews.  Four children of the marriage survive -- Mr. John W. Howard, Mrs. William T. Love, Mrs. Edward B. Maloney and Mr. Frank Howard, of this county, and an adopted son, Mr. Harry Haskins, of New York.  Two brothers. Mr. John Howard of Pennsylvania and Mr. James Howard of New Jersey, also survive.  An only sister died in her youth.  Interment was made in Federalsburg cemetery."

      "On December 15th, Mrs. Sarah P. Howard, widow of Frederick Howard, who preceded her by only ten days, died at Williston, aged 73 years.  She was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Ager Andrews, who were Delawareans.  She has two sisters, Mrs. Mary Lizzie Legates, of Federalsburg, and Mrs. C. T. White, of Philadelphia.  Mrs Howard made many friends by her happy disposition.  Se expressed a desire when her husband died not to stay here without him. 'So God took her.' Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend the funeral from her home on Saturday, December 19th, at 1 o'clock.  Interment will be made at Federalsburg."

      1880 US Census indicates he and his parents were born in England. 

      His grandson William L. Howard recalls:

      "Immigrated to America at age 6"

      "Frederick Howard and his wife Sallie had 60 acre farm near the Howard School House and near the road between Martin Grove and Denton, MD. (The origin of the Howard School House is unknown to WLH.  Note: the Howard School house is about 5 miles from the Old Country School in American Corner, where WLH went until 6th grade then went to Federalsburg school)"

      "After the children were grown, he moved to Williston" [13]
