Rathbone Howe is also reported in the 1830 census in Solon, Cortland, NY. He is listed in the US Fed. Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1880 as having died in Newton, Calhoun, Michigan in Jun 1860. He is Listed as being widowed but the 1860 census for Newton, Calhoun, Michigan lists Nancy A Howe age 58 as head of the household with the followingpeople also listed: Maria Howe age 19, Clarissa Howe, age 6, James Howe, age 16 and Joseph Howe age 22. They are all listed as having been b in New York state. Nancy Howe is too young to have been the mother of my Albert Howe who was born in 1815 so I wonder if Nancy was a 2nd wife of Rathbone Howe. (Rathbone Howe was buried in the cemetery plot belonging to Albert Howe)Contact me at my e-mail address and we will see what we information we have in total.
