Answer to:
sorry, no info, but maybe other "cousins" will have your line. You might post a message.
My line is : Walter Howell m. Nancy Lawrence < Jefferson, Tn. (His father William
Howell, may have been connected with the John
Howell fam. Grainger/Orange Co. N.C.(Deeds that "cousins" sent said he owned land in
Grainger Tn., Jefferson, Tn. A William Howell
sold land to John Howell in Orange, Co. N.C.
and a William Howell sold land to Caleb Howell Grainger, Tn. ("Cousins" think Benjamin Howell of Orange Co. N.C. & Grainger, Tn. may have been a bro.(some "cousins" before thought a Benjamin Howell was his father. "Cousins" think John, Benjamin, and Edward Howell were connected as
the names were together on an Estate doc. that some found before from N.C.( Note from
Jean:"We do not have proof of this but Henry Ivey who Jane Howell m. and Benjamin Howell are always found close together in N.C. and Tn.Also, in the Rev. papers of Hopkin Howell he stated that he served in the Rev. for his brother Henry Howell. I figure that we can pretty well accept Jane, Henry and Benjamin
Howell and Hopkin as Siblings.).
