Hello. I came across your post and would love to see if you could help with a Howerton connection we have struggled with a bit while tracing our Lyons family line. We are seeking lineage information for Julia Howerton Born approximately 1890. In 1900 at a very young age, she was married to Elijah (Lige) David Robinson in Joplin MIssouri. We have found the marriage license for this and he is referenced as L.D. Robinson and her name is spelled as Howardin on it. The license notes that her mother Elizabeth "Howardin" (Howerton) granted permission for the marriage due to Julia's age.

Julia went on to have three children, Ethel, Lonnie, and Sarah. Around 1907, she removed herself from her situation and the view within the family is that the situation was never really a good one from Julia's perspective. We've lost track of her after that. We are descendants of Julia's daughter Ethel and have a good picture of the lineage from Ethel on. But, we've been trying to find out what became of Julia. There was a family member that had found her afterward, but information is extremely limited. She remarried and her name became Anderson/Andersen. but we don't know where she ended up or know of any other family members.

So, we'd love see if you have any information on Julia Howerton and would love to see if you have any info on tracing backward from her in the Howerton line through her mother Elizabeth, etc. In terms of migration, it is believed that there was a land transaction for 40 acres that took place that was part of the permission arrangement for Julia's marriage. A family member remembers hearing that the land was perhaps in Kentucky. I did find a Jackson Purchase land patent in Kentucky in what is now Marshall County near the MIssouri boarder for two parcels totally 320 acres that went to a "John Robinson". Elijah had a great grandfather in the same 1830's timeframe in Kentucky whose name was John Robinson. It's conceivable that some of this family land could have ended up in Elijah's name and he could have then transferred it to Elizabeth Howerton. I haven't found concrete evidence that this is the correct land, but it seems to line up and seems plausible.

Certainly though, they were in MIssouri in 1900 and it is believed Elizabeth Howerton and her relatives were sharecroppers. Thank you for taking the time to read and for any response or information you might have. The best way to reach out to me would be at our email address of : csmith2112@metrocast.net. I look forward to hearing from you!
