Howell's in Manitoba
Posted by: Ingrid Lusty (ID *****4804) Date: February 10, 2007 at 16:17:26
  of 1701

I have found the following marriage on
Ontario, Canada Marriages, 1857-1922
about Carrie Dent
Name: Carrie Dent
Birth Place: Canada
Age: 22
Father Name: William Dent
Mother Name: Elizabeth Dent [Last name for Elizabeth is Simpson]
Estimated birth year: abt 1867
Spouse Name: John Nowell [I believe the name should be John Fuller Howell]
Spouse's Age: 22
Spouse Birth Place: Canada
Spouse Father Name: John Nowell [John George Lambton Howell]
Spouse Mother Name : Mary Nowell [Elizabeth Mary Nicholson]
Marriage Date: 18 Jun 1889
Marriage Place: Wentworth
Marriage County: Wentworth
Source: Indexed by:

John George Lambton Howell d. November 8, 1928, widowed, looks like Beamsville, Ontario, registered Clinton, Lincoln County.
He was 86 years, 6 months and 1 day. Born Trafalgar.
Parents: John "L" Howell from Pennsylvania, N. Y. & Hannah Smith from Trafalgar.
Informant: Mrs. Annie Wright, from Beamsville, daughter.
Registration #022227

Anyhow, I found a John & Carrie (Caroline) on the 1906 census in Manitoba.
1 172 Howell John Head M M 38
2 172 Howell Carline Wife F M 38
3 172 Howell Bruce Son M S 16
4 172 Howell Jessie Daughter F S 14
5 172 Howell Carrie Daughter F S 11
6 172 Howell Ella Daughter F S 8
7 172 Howell Hannah Daughter F S 6

There is a death in the Manitoba Vital Statistics for a John Howell that would be the right age.
DATE OF DEATH: 05/09/1928
AGE: 62

Below is what I have.

1. JOHN FULLER3 HOWELL (JOHN GEORGE LAMBTON2, JOHN L.1) was born Abt. 1867 in Nelson Twp., Halton County, Ontario, Canada. He married CARRIE ELIZABETH DENT 18 Jun 1889 in Hamilton, Wentworth County, Ontario, Canada, daughter of WILLIAM DENT and ELIZABETH SIMPSON. She was born Abt. 1867 in Nelson Twp., Halton County, Ontario, Canada.

Children of JOHN HOWELL and CARRIE DENT are:
i. CLINTON BRUCE4 HOWELL, b. 09 Sep 1889, Nelson Twp., Halton County, Ontario, Canada.
ii. MARGARET STUART HOWELL, b. 10 Sep 1891, Nelson Twp., Halton County, Ontario, Canada.
iii. CARRIE TRILLER HOWELL, b. 05 May 1895, North Grimsby, Lincoln County, Ontario, Canada.
iv. ELLA MAY HOWELL, b. 18 Feb 1897, Lincoln County, Ontario, Canada.
v. HANNAH SMITH HOWELL, b. 31 Dec 1898, Lincoln County, Ontario, Canada.
vi. FRANCIS HOWELL, b. 09 Mar 1901, Lincoln County, Ontario, Canada; d. 09 Mar 1901, Clinton Twp., Lincoln County, Ontario, Canada.

I welcome your comments and corrections. I would greatly like to confirm that Carrie (Caroline) Dent is indeed, the daughter of William Dent and Elizabeth Simpson, and to find out more about them. I cannot, as yet find them in 1911.

Thank you.
