I have been looking for my ggggrandfather for several years. His name was William Hardy "Jim" Howard and was born in Alabama in 1827. He was married to Nancy Gulley and they moved to Union Parish in Louisiana . I beleive he had a brother named John. This was in North Louisiana. my mother was a Howard . I have a lot of information on my family and am hoping there is a connection.
