Jeremiah and Sarah Howard Family
Posted by: Joanne (ID *****1128) Date: December 14, 2004 at 10:02:38

Looking for information on Jeremiah Howard and Sarah Brown of Bangor, Maine


===================================
Bangor Daily Whig And Courier
October 23, 1890


A YOUTHFUL OLD LADY


It is doubtful if a better preserved old lady for her age than Mrs. Sally Brown, of this city can be found anywhere. She is now 90 years of age and as active as many much younger. Within the last two months she has done considerable patchwork and knit a pair of heavy stockings in seven days besides this she takes all the care of her own room. Mrs. Brown was born in Barrington Ridge, now Stafford Ridge, N. H. in 1798. In 1822 she was married to Mr. Jeremiah Howard, and they moved to Bangor in 1835. They had ten children; eight of whom are living, twenty-two grandchildren and thirty eight great grandchildren. Mrs. Brown's many friends hope that her good health may contiue and that she may have many more before her.

Apprciate any help
