Here is an overview of my family tree for the Howe line. Most all of my Howe family information is found in the book, "Genealogy and History of the John Howe Family", written in 1960 by Emma Katherine Howe of Brookville, Pennsylvania.
NEW! The John Howe Family History, written by Emma Katherine Howe in 1960, is now available online! Considering the effort that she made to write it and distribute it to all of the known descendents (spread throughout the country), I felt that she would be pleased to know that it is now available to anyone researching the Howe, Hindman and Orcutt surnames. Enjoy.
