Notes for W
ILLIAM HOWARD:
The myth, legend of the "Howard Inheritance" is bases on oral history and solid facts that a William Howard of New York left his only son John Howard, a large sum of money. The money would now be worth multi-millions. The mystery, intrigue, sudden unexplained deaths, reads like a Hollywood movie. Still, maybe one of John P Howard descendants may have that one critical documentation which would provide enough money for a cup of coffee!!! I would like to give credit here to those who previously did all the hard work on the Howard Tree. The primary mover and shaker, Ruby (Howard) Smith, Doris (Howard) Lofton, Barbara Jean Howard (Bobby), and Sybil (Howard) Mitchell, who gave me this treasure trove of documentation and pictures.

      Miscellaneous Information      FACT? FICTION?

This information was compiled from several sources and acquired by word of mouth from stories that I have heard all my life.


WILLIAM H. HOWARD: A very rich man who came from England and settled in N.Y. City/and Troy N.Y. This was in the late 1700. He exported furs and imported fur and leather ready made garments He and his wife EUPHRASIA, had two children. The encyclopedia list Sir John Egar Howard, an early colonist and statesman, of N.Y. Colony

The two children were:
SARAH ELIZABETH(BETSY) HOWARD HART: married a man      Hart. she lived and died in NY (N.Y. City or Troy NY) This information~ came from her grandson, Richart Hart, who was in his 80's when he was located, in the 1960's. He lived and died in N.Y. (City or state?)

JOHN P. HOWARD: My ancestor, was born in Troy, NY about 1820. In 1834, at age 14, he ran away from home because he didn't like the life of a rich boy of that time, watched over and accompied at all times by a servant. Imagine this;
Servant(slave)?"Marse John, I'll tell yo daddy if you don't stop beating that horse". or "Marse John, I'll tell Mr William, if you loose any more money on that horse race" or "Marse John, yo can't go into that whore house, I'll tell Mr. William"

What a bore' Poor boy He just had to rebel

At any rate, general information has it that he was at sea for an unknown number of years. He landed in Mobile, Ala. and went to St. Louis,Mo where he worked his way through school. His father traced him to Mobile, and then to Selma, Ala. William Howard contacted him and sent him $700 dollars, and begged him to come back home, all was forgiven. Many letters were exchanged over the next few years, but he never went back to N.Y. John P. took the money that his father sent and bought a farm in Butler County, Alabama. He worked as a school teacher. Worked in a local cotton gin. He ran for sheriff of Lowndes County, Ala, was elected and served two terms. This was confirmed by records in the court house in Butler County. This court house burned in 1953 and all positive proof records were destroyed.
He married a Mary Louise Blount and they had six children; John, James, Sallie, Robert, Jack, and Walter.
John P. died of measles in 1863, and was buried in Alabama. The~is some evidence that Mary Louise died at this time, probable also; from measles.
John P.,knowing that he was going to die, told his wife and children that he was willed a lot of money by his father. That proof was in his desk. Get a good lawyer and get the money for herself and the children.
Following their deaths, the oldest son John, would not even read the letters, but piled them up and burned most of them,
page 2


thus destroying positive evidence of identity and inheritance for the rest of the dependences. A male relative of Mary Louise , liked keepsakes, and he salvaged some of the things and letters out of John P. desk. These things were traced to the relative's grandaughter1 about 1960, but she was overseas, and the family were never to get these things.(thought to be mostly letters)

The family moved to Texas, exact dates are unknown, but around the end of the Civil War. approx 1865. Things were very upleasant in Alabama at the end of the Civil War, and Texas was open for home steading. Exact location of homestead was unknown.

ROBERT WREADWRIGHT HOWARD: my ancestor, was born in Alabama in 1850. He died in 1919, and was buried at Rosebud, Falls County, Texas. All of Robert's children were born in Milam or Falls County, Texas. All of Robert's brothers and sisters lived and died in that area, so it must be assumed that they settled in this area when they moved from Alabama.

NOTE. The original burial record of William Howard list the following information. He was interred in the Auchincloss vault of the New York Marble Cemetery

HOWARD, William bur. 1 Feb 1845 67 yrs
Born NY; died 18 Dey St. Marasmus senilis. Removed to Albany.
