Notes for P
ORTMAN HOWARD:
Born about 1770, Portman was residing in Wayne County, Kentucky in 1810 according to the census, he is shown with 2 males under 10, 1 male 26 - 45, 2 females under 10 and 1 female 16-45. He entered Capt. Micah Taul's company on Infantry, 7th Regiment (Barbee's) Kentucky Volunteer Militia on August 23, 1812 as a private. He was engaged for six months service but it appears he served less according to the journal and his pay voucher.

The following is from the book "A Century of Wayne County, Kentucky".
"In the war of 1812 Wayne County took a part far out of proportion to her population. These men were almost all Revolutionary soldiers, or their sons, from Southwest Virginia and the Northwestern part of North Carolina, and when the call came they responded eagerly. The first volunteers from Wayne left August 24, 1812, under Captain Taul. . . . . . they were among the Kentucky Volunteers called in August for six month's service."

A member of Captain Taul's Company, Rodes Garth, kept a journal of the daily occurrences. This journal was published in the Wayne County Outlook in 1898. An entry dated September 12 reported that "Portman Howard and George Neal were left sick". A pay voucher for Portman Howard dated September 10, 1812 had as a remark "sick".

In 1820 Portman Howard is shown still in Wayne Co., Kentucky on the census report, there are 2 males under 10, 2 males between 10 and 15, 1 male between 26-44, also there are 3 females under 10 and 1 female 26-44.

In 1825, a tax record is found for Portman Howard in White Co., Tennessee. Peter Howard was in Wayne Co., Kentucky near Portman, aged 45+ with one female over 16 and under 26 and a female over 45. There is also a Peter Howard listed in White Co., Tennessee on the 1825 tax lists.

In 1836, Portman Howard is listed on the Overton Co., Tenn. Tax list as owning 187 acres. He is also listed on the 1840 census as being between the ages of 60-70 with 1 female 15-20 and 1 female 50-60.
