    • Lundie W. Barlow 17 Dec 1944 letter to Sidney Howell notes:

      "Based on the notes previously sent, and on those herewith, it appears that the Howell line may have been as follows:

      1. Matthew Howell of Isle of Wight County, Virginia; married Mary, daughter of Joseph Lane; died 1720; issue an unborn child, son Joseph, and son
      2. Thomas Howell of Bertie-Edgecombe-Halifax County, N. Carolina; born 1703; married Ann _____; died 1777; issue son William and son
      3. Thomas Howell of Halifax County, N. Carolina; born 1725; married _______; daughter of (? John McKinne; died 1795; issue: five daughters, (? son McKinne), and son
      4. Matthew Howell of Halifax County, N. Carolina; born 1747; married Temperance; daughter of  (?Charles) Cavanah of Edgecombe County, N. Carolina and Burke County, Ga. (?son) of Charles Cavanah who died 1757 in Edgecombe) died 1802; issue: Sarah (married Rhodes), sons Matthew, Thomas, Joseph, William and son
      5 McKinne Howell of Halifax County, N. Carolina, and Greene County, Georgia; born 1781; married Mary, daughter of John Johnson; died 1851.

      It is merely an assumption that the Thomas, son of Matthew of Isle of Wight, was identical with the Thomas who died in Halifax in 1777 - research in the records of Isle of Wight and of Bertie, N. Carolina is indicated in this connection.  the time element favors the conclusion, however, and the Lane associations are persuasive.  That the Thomas who died in 1795 is strongly evidenced by the fact that Patience Pierce, daughter of the former, witnessed the will of the latter, her grandfather.  Patience was a McKinne name.  No will or record of administration of the Mattew who died in 1802 has been found, but it is obvious that he was the son of Thomas who died in 1795 and the father of the brothers who moved to Georgia -- they sold the land for which Matthew was assessed in 1800 and for which his father, Thomas, was assessed on prior rolls.  I hope to find something further regarding this Matthew on my next trip to Raleigh"
