John Howell was born in North Carolina in the vicinity of Waynesboriugh (FNU) in about 1788, or there abouts. He was son of Henry Howell and (brain Farht) whose family wa original from France and were often referred to as the Boat People. Henry Howell was reported to have been born in the South Quay of Jamestown, COLONIAL VIRGINIA . His father is reported to be Ethlelred Edward Howell, who was to have been born in Wales of the United Kingdom (England). in about 1638 to 1658 or so. This is all coming out of my memory and may not be exact. Even at age 81 I still have almost all of my wits about myself. ANYWAY I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL DATA OR THOUGHTS REGARDING WHAT YOU KNOW OR MAY HAVE KNOWN REGARDING MY QUEST FOR DATA ON THE ERTHELRED EDWARD HOWELL FAMILY AND DESCENDENTS.
