  • Notes 
    • The following notes from Lundie Barlow's 17 Dec 1944 letter to Sidney Howell:

      "The McKinne Howell who had a deed to 320 acres in Halifax is somewhat of a puzzle.  He could not have been the man who married Mary Johnson for that McKinne was not born until 1781, two years after the date of the deed.  I have assumed that he was a son of the Thomas who died in 1795 and that he died intestate and without issue, his land falling first to his father, then to his brother, Matthew, and later to Matthew's sons, the Georgia Brothers, who sold it in 1806.  But L.L. Knight, in his Georgia Landmarks, stated that McKinne Howell was one of the original settlers of Greene County, Georgia.  This could not have been the McKinney who married Mary Johnson -- this McKinney was only five years old at that time and he was still in North Carolina as late as 1804, eighteen years after Greene County was established.  Possibly the McKinne Howell referred to by Knight was the same man who took title to the land in Halifax, North Carolina in 1779 and then disappeared from that section."
