I see that your entry was written in 2000, so I don't know if you will read this. I am a descendent of Sarah and James Howard, who were my Great Grandparents.According to the minimal information I have, she was born in 1824, and their son David Howard was my
Grandfather, born in 1851. It has been my family's oral history that Sarah Lee was related to Robert E Lee, but I don't know how. It appears that you and I are cousins! I'd love to hear from you!
