I am at my wits end in trying to figure this one out...
Here is what I have (working backwards):
(on my fathers Howell line)
William Wilburn Howell b.May 1, 1892 Illinois (son of):
Paul (James?) Howell b. 1868/1872 Illinois (son of):
Harvey Hardin Howell b. 1822 Tenn. (Married to):
Melvina (Lowry-all var.) b. 1825-1830 Tenn.(?) d. June 4, 1911
Now, according to her death cert., her father and mother were from
Tenn., and on the cert. it lists her mothers name as: Melvina
(Arnden)...(I am wondering if it might have some var.like a silent H- -
Does anyone know anything about this surname?
Can anyone help?
