    • A brief History of the Howard Family
      by Sadie Howard Maloney in 1959

      James Howard, the oldest ancestor of the Howard family of which I have record, was born in England 1796; died 1887 at the age of 91years and was buried at Hyde Chapel Gee Cross, Hyde, England.

      He was twice married. His first wife was Hannah Leighton. Three children by this marriage, namely, John, James and Hannah. His second was Jane Shyrock. Four children by this marriage, namely, Charles, William, Thomas, Chariot. 

      [JSH note: This genealogy differs from the text above and shows Hannah Howard, born in 1849, as Jane's daughter, as Hanna Leighton died in 1840]

      About 1854 John, oldest son of James Howard, and wife, Sarah Bew Howard, with their children, came to America in a sail vessel, taking about 6 weeks for the voyage. Shortly after this date his brothers followed. Chariot always lived in England, where she married and raised her family. The first families that came to America settled in Bucks County, Pa., but soon moved elsewhere.

      About 1868-1870 Frederick Howard, oldest son of John and Sarah B. Howard, came to Maryland and had built for his parents the house in which Elsie and Andrew Towers now live. He bought the adjoining farm, where all of his children were born and raised.

      The Charles Howard farm nearby is quite a landmark which still remains in the family, now owned by his daughter, Lottie Howard Graham. Howard’s School was built on this land and many of our children will always cherish the spot where they spent their first school days. This property is located in Caroline County, Maryland, between Denton and American Corner. John and Sarah B. Howard also owned other farms near Laurel Grove.

      At that time there was a school house and Methodist Church at Laurel Grove, where the children or families of Charles, Walter, Frederick and John Howard attended church and school. We, of that generation, cherish the spot and have precious memories. James and Alfred Howard owned these farms and they are still in the family. Robert Towers, son of Elsie and Andrew Towers, owns one of the farms. Mark Howard, son of Charles Howard, and the heirs of Alfred Howard, son of John and Sarah Howard, own the remaining land.

      The Howard Family Tree and the Census overlap on 8 persons.
      The Howard family tree has George, and Wright, but they do not appear above.
      The Howard family tree does not have Elizabeth, who appears above.
      The Howard family tree has Hannah, but she does not appear above.

      The Howard family tree does not have "Josh" but it is prob an abbreviation of Joseph which we do have.
      The birth order is different but there are no ages on the Howard Family Tree beyond Charles (both agree he is first)

      There is no overlap of the Census names and the names of James Howard's children by his first wife Hannah (John, James).
