I am seeking the parents and birthplace of Thomas HOWE who died abt 1825 from a fall at the Towar's Mill west of the village of Lyons, NY. At the time of his death he was married to Abigail, nee possibly HEATH and they had 4 children the oldest being named John Quincy Howe.(I have much info about him) Abigail later married an Englishman by the name of William GIBBS. possibly a tavern owner. She moved to his residence somewhere between Newark, NY and Port Gibson, NY..
Abigail had at least one child with Mr. Gibbs, Cornelia Gibbs.She married John B HOSFORD and was residing in Phelps, NY. They had 2 children Morton Hosford and Mrs.Charles GARLOCK.
It is said Thomas was born in Vermont and on Abigail"s stone is written, born in Bradford, VT.
This is my brick wall...sure could use some help.
