Looking for information on Reuben Nurce Howell. His wife was Louisa Eliot Olgilvie. I believe they lived somewhere in Albion in 1880s. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

My g-grandfather was Reuben and my grandfather was James Riley Howell. My father Charles Riley Howell was born in Albion in 1893. I have not been able to find any information beyond Reuben except that his father and mother were William and Sarah. Would appreciate any info you might have to share.

Hello!
Reuben's older brother's name was James Riley Howell. The older Howell made his home in Delaware County, Indiana after leaving Ohio. Another researcher, a descendant of Reuben Nurce, Jr. found them in Centre Township. He wrote an extensive history on Reuben that I would be willing to pass on to you if you like.

Was this James R. Howell the one who operated Howell's Ferry across the Snake River just below the present-day Minidoka Dam? John Mutch e-mail: tokens@idahovandals.com

My mother's father's, Thomas Hillard Pitts, mother was Michal Jane Howell, her father was Thomas Benton Howell, whos father was Riley Howell, whos son was William Riley Howell b. about 1837 in Ill. William was married to Sarah Charity Honea. The only child I have for them is Mary Elizabeth "Sis" Howell b. 1858 in Arkansas. Does this fit with your relatives?

The names you mention do not coincide with what I have found so far. Reuben's father was William but he was born in VA and since Reuben was born in 1829 in Ohio, William would have been born closer to 1800. If I find another connection I will let you know. Thanks.

Hi,
I grew up in Albion and recently began helping one of your cousins who contacted our historical society about your ancestor, Reuben Nurce (Nurse) Howell and his wife, Louisa Ogilvive Howell Elliot. I am just beginning to research this family, but know a few things. It has been so long since you posted this message, you may have already done a lot of research on this family. If you would like more information, please let me know! Janis Durfee
