I am interested in contacting anyone who knows of, or descends from the Howard family who originated in Washington, DC, came to Texas at about the time of the Alamo, married and settled in Bexar Co., San Antonio, the Dallas area, etc. Some members of the family returned to Washington. Names included Henry Peyton Howard who married Lee Weir; his son , William E. Howard (a San Antonio and Dallas physician), and Henry Peyton Howard's brother, George Thomas Howard. William E. Howard contributed a large collection of Alamo-related objects to the Alamo library in San Antonio. George Thomas Howard was an Indian fighter and blazed the trail in an expedition to Santa Fe in 1841. George Thomas Howard's parents were William Thomas Howard (b 1779; d. 1832, both in Washington DC) and Ann Bean (1791-1836) who had some genealogical association with Thomas C.
