    Origins of Henry Alonzo Howell's given names by Elizabeth Howell Traver :

    Henry Alonzo Howell was named for two soldiers killed in wars. "Henry" was for Henry Heard, Henry Alonzo Howell's uncle, who died at Pine Mountain during Sherman's March to the Sea in August 1864.

    Alonzo McBride was the son of John McBride, surveyor general of Georgia. After John McBride died, the family moved with the Howell's to Houston County (Perry, GA). Being the oldest, he enlisted in Gen. Andrew Jackson's war against the Indians in Alabama, where he was killed. His will is in the courthouse in Perry, Jimmy Brittain's mother saw it written just before he left for the Army. Alonzo Church, early president of the University of Georgia was John McBride's best friend, so he named his eldest son for him. [JSH notes: Alonzo Church b. 1793 in Brattleboro, VT, graduated Middlebury College and moved to GA in 1816]
