Seeking information on Alfred Howell listed on the 1900 Hale County Census, Justice Precinct # 1, E.D. 28, Sheet 1A. He is listed with his wife Sarah and two of his seven children. He lists Virginia as his birthplace and says he is a lawyer. I believe he is in Hood County, Texas for the 1880 census.

Obituary
(She is also listed as Florence Serena Howell.)

Alfred Thomas Howell, Jr.was living in Hereford, Deaf Smith County, Texas, around 1918 at the time of the WWI draft registration. His information says that he was born March 3, 1876. He is a stock raiser and his wife is Mrs Mary Wood Howell.

In 1930 he and his family are in Lubbock County, Texas.

I don't know if you have a list of the children, but what I see from the census records and other sources, they are:

1) Robert Boyte Crawford Howell
2) John Bennett Howell
3) Morton Howell
4) Mary Howell
5) Isabella Howell
6) Serena Howell
7) Alfred Thomas Howell

The Howell family was in Hood County, Texas, in 1880. In 1870 the were in Tarrant County, Texas. They were in Hunt County, Texas p 303, in 1860. Alfred Thomas Howell is living with his parents in Richmond, Richmond, Virginia, in 1850, p 324.

I will send the census records to you if you do not have them.

I am trying to connect my ancestor, Mary Margaret Howell, b. 21 Aug 1868 in Texas as the daughter of Alfred Howell. My Mary Margaret Howell married Jefferson Lee Jordan about 1888 and they raised a family of 10 children in Young County, Texas. Mary died in Young County, Texas on 21 November 1935.
