  • Notes 
    • JSH notes:  The name on her gravestone is Elmina, Albert S. Howell's notes refer to her as Elmina, however Havilah Howell Mapp and other documents references say "Elmira".

      From Albert Sidney Howell in a letter to Florence O. Pollard:

      "..Elmina McBride was raised in Milledgeville and Eatonton and married John Johnson Howell in Perry, Houston County, Georgia"

      From William Heard Kilpatrick notes from a book which belonged to his father:
      "Elmirra [McBride] Howell was born 13 Aug. 1815 and died 23 May 1883."

      From James Brittain - three items:

      1. In a letter from Villa [Havila] Howell Mapp White Plains, Ga. to W. S Howell Greenville, Ga. Feb 20,1911.
      "...John Johnson Howell married Elmira Mc Bride when she was sixteen. She was reared in Milledgeville [Ga.] and Eatonton, Georgia."

      2. In a letter (about 20 pages) from Lundie W Barlow, Richmond Va. Nov, 8 1944 to Albert Sidney Howell
      "...My parents John Johnson Howell and Elmira McBride Howell, were married in the town of Perry Houston Co. Ga. in 1832."

      3. The third document I am not sure of the author, possibly Florence Stewart Howell Pollard. No date but about late 1960's
      "...Checking back to Elmira McBride who was married to John Johnson Howell, she was the Daughter of John McBride who died in 1830. He was married to Elizabeth Veazey or Veasy, who was the daughter of Delilah Rhodes[?], Delilah was the daughter of a Mr. Southerland and wife who was a Miss Cleyborn before her marriage.: [21, 31]
