Mindwell Howard was born on May 26, 1769 in Cumberland, RI, daughter of Seth Howard (March 08, 1738/39 Stoughton (Canton, Norfolk) Massachusetts) and Phebe Hayden (September 29, 1742, Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts). This branch of the Howards go back to Bridgewater MA where John Howard/Haward immigrated in c. 1651) Seth took his family to Rowe MA (then known as Myrifield) in 1776. It was there that Mindwell married Jonathan Gleason -there was a large family of Gleasons in the area, and I have information about a number of them. The vital records of Rowe show Mindwell and Jonathan losing two two children -Aug 29, 1790 and Nov. 5, 1790 -no names or sexes given.
I believe I descend from Mindwell's older brother Nathan, whose offspring ended up in Sophiasburgh, Ontario.
I would like to trace Jonathan and Mindwell Gleason's progress after they leave Rowe, in case Nathan took the same route. Please let me know if you have an idea where they settled before arriving in Haldimand Twp., Ontario.
Hope this is of interest.
