I just read your posting of several months ago regarding pension for Albert Howard. I have been searching for ANY information on my mothers family. Alma Howard of Eaton, Jackson County area was married to George Cady.(my gr. grandfather ) who living in Charlevoix County in 1894. I THINK that she had a brother Albert. Would appreciate any info you may have. Thanks Naida

I don't recall an Alma HOWARD in my tree. I can't access my program right now to check. There were other HOWARDs in Charlevoix, and they were related to some of mine. Albert's father was John HOWARD who died in Eaton County. His mother was Janet KNOX.
In October my dog ate through the cord of my computer and blew out my motherboard. I just got a new computer today!! YIPPPEEEE!! I don't have access to any of my old data yet. I have to take the old computer back in and they will try to retrieve the family tree program I had saved. They aren't sure if they can get my old stuff for me or not.

Surnames: Howard, Cady, Hewlett
I have just started researching the Howard name because of the Cady connection. There is some confusing info on the LDS site regarding DORCAS HOWARD who m. Jerome CADY in 1867 in Jackson Co, MI. This conflicts with some of my info.

The site also states that ALMA HOWARD m. George A. CADY 1866 in Ingham Co, MI. The LDS site shows Abraham & Elizabeth Hewlett Howard as parents to both Dorcas & Alma Howard.

I did find this family on the 1850 census in Jackson Co, MI. Seven children are listed, including Dorcas b. 1839, Albert b. 1846 and Almon (Alma?) b. 1849 (it shows that Almon is male).

I have been trying to confirm that Dorcas & Alma were sisters and they married brothers, Jerome & George.

I don't have any info on the parents of the Cady's, do you? By the way, George & Alma are my ggg grandparents.

I don't believe this Albert Rudolphus HOWARD is related to yours. He is the son of John William HOWARD born Canada and Janet KNOX born Scotland. They came to Eaton County, Michigan before 1860 from Ontario, Canada. John died in Eaton County, Janet died in Buxton, Washington, Oregon. Albert R. HOWARD moved to Charlevoix Co, where he died. There was another John HOWARD in Eaton County during this timeframe. Have you gotten any death records, wills, census records for your HOWARDs yet? Cemetery records and obituaries will also help you out. There are no known CADYs in my line either. Sorry they don't fit my tree as far as I can tell, Pam

Michael Cady b: 1798 in Middlebury, Tioga Co., PA. married Sarah George b: 1802 in NJ.

Michael Cady and Sarah George had the following children:

Eliza Jane Cady b: 3/17/1839 - My gg-grandmother
George Cady b: 1840 married Alma Howard Jan 14, 1866
Serenna Cady b: 1838
Sarah M. Cady b: 1842
Michael Cady Jr. b: 1844

My grandmother is still living, and in her 90's. Her grandmother was Eliza Jane Cady. I am also interested in the Cady line. I have all info on Eliza Jane Cady's line, but am working on her siblings.

I hope this helps: )

Thank you very, very much. I had found Michael and his children on 1850 census in Michigan but could not confirm George and Alma as there apparently were several Cady families in about the same area: Ingham and Jackson Counties in 1850. My mother was Elizabeth May Cady, daughter of Leroy Cady and Evelena Howie, granddaughter of
George and Alma. I have a picture of "Grandma Cady" as my mother called her. But I do not think she is Alma. I beleive this is George's second wife as my grandfather, Leroy, had I think, two half brothers. Guy Cady and Leslie Cady. I'm quite sure that neiher Guy nor Leslie had any children. I do remember them from when I was a small child. Thanks again. Naida Chew Cogswell
