Howell – Read connection in New Brunswick

Howell – Read

Westmorland County, New Brunswick

A friends wife mentioned having Read ancestors from Westmorland County New Brunswick.  This is where our Hickman’s are from.  She also has Nova Scotia ancestors that were in the lumber business – same as our Davison family.

We must be related right?  So the hunt is on!

Thus far, I’ve found a Reed – Howell connection starting with the marriage of Annie M. Wells to Capt Benjamin A. S. Read  in 1822 .  Not sure where that leads  – more to follow.
