John S. Howell, Jr.










Winter - Spring 2017 - 18th year of this research. 

Dear Reader, 

I hope these pages help you discover a bit more of your own family history. 

What can I do here? Perhaps start by searching for just your father's or mother's last name using the search box in the upper right corner of this page.  The system provides a list of everyone in the database that matches. (results for Howell for example).  From your list click on any name to see the individual detail page showing dates, parents, siblings, spouses, children, notes, sources, and whatever photos and documents I have. Then from the individual detail page, click on the Ancestors tab at the top to see a Fan Chart of that persons ancestors. (example). Every name in the Fan Chart is also clickable for details. There are many more things to do, but that should get you started!

There are two main sections to this site: 

 1. The Family Trees section consists of a database with 9,400+ individuals, 3,400+ families, and 1,850+ surnames - each person selected and entered by yours truly from information gathered since 1999.

Almost everyone in the database is somehow connected to either Susan's or my family lines.

The 900+ sources for this data include brothers, sisters, parents, uncles, aunts and grandparents, and an ever growing list of cousins that I regularly correspond with. For a complete list of sources click on "Sources" on the home page, but to name a few of the larger contributors outside of our immediate family: W. Darcy McKeough provided much correspondence and a lifetime of work on the Stone line; Emily Campbell Price, developed an extensive genealogy on our Campbell line called "The Campbell's of Auchindrain"; Ted Lollis and Judi Wallbridge McCrae contributed extensively on the Campbell line; Stuart Davison and the DesBrisay Museum staff in Bridgewater Nova Scotia provided much assistance on the Davison Family; Marlene Hickman has provided her 20 years of research on the Hickman Family of New Brunswick, NS. Betty Howell Traver contributed many original photos and documents that helped us trace the Howell line; Betty Harrington Deveraux provided wonderful photos and a genealogy of the Webster line; Wendy Smythe provided her genealogy on the Boyer Family; Betty Parker Wolfe provided her genealogy of the Davison Family and Jim Brittain, Jr. contributed hundreds of pages of research, letters and other original documents in his posession from the files of Albert Sidney Howell. Much interesting information is also gathered during our little Genealogy Safaris to towns in Georgia, Maryland, New Brunswick, New England, Nova Scotia, and Pennsylvania. Scanned copies of many documents and photos gathered during these visits are also in the database. 


 2. The Genealogue - is a diary of my adventures in genealogy displayed in reverse chronological order. Most of the articles link to records in the Family Trees database, so the Genealogue can be used as guide to some of the more interesting database entries. You can also limit the Genealogue articles to just those that pertain to one of Susan's or my family lines starting with Boyer, Carlin, Carter, Freeney, Howard, Howell, Stone or Umlauf. So limiting articles by Howell will also get articles on Davison, Heard and Hickman lines for example. 

I always enjoy hearing from you - so drop a line and say hello! Please don't hesitate to point out something that looks wrong to you, or to offer any new or more complete information than what you see - I'm very interested. 

Best of luck in your research, and thanks for visiting! 

Sincerely, 
John S. Howell, Jr. 
Naples, Florida
