Looking for the Howland family of which Elizabeth "Betsy"Howland Smith was in. Betsy was born in Mass. c 1797. Her family moved to Farmington, NY.. After marrying Dr Elisha Fitch Smith about 1820 she moved with him to East Hamburgh ,NY. Today the town is Orchard Park, NY. I have found many Howland families on Have not been able so far to figure out where Betsy fits in.

My great-great-grandmother was Flora Howland (buried in Castana, IA) and my great-grandparents were William and Hallie Howland, also buried in Castana. Any connections.

@ Norma Lawson
William J Howland's father and mother was...
Barnabus Howland (b. 1828 Brockville, Ontario d. 1894 Masonville, IA)
Phoebe A. Bullock (b. 1833 Sheldon, NY d. 1901 Manchester, IA)

Before Barnabus, there were two more William Howlands, an Israel Howland, John Howland, Nathaniel Howland, then Zoeth Howland, Henry Howland (of Plymouth Colony), Henry Howland (of Fen Stanton, Huntingdonshire, England), through three John Howlands, finally to an unamed Howland that was born 1450.

I've already requested that you add me as a friend so we might discuss our shared lineage. I have more information if you are interested. Also, if anyone else is interested to share information, please feel free to add me as a friend so that we might speak.

My Grandmother is a Howland. Her Father's name was Jay E Howland. I trace my ancestry all the way back past Zoeth Howland (1635-1676), to Henry Howland (1604-1671) who arrived in 1623 on a ship named the 'Ann', all the way back to England to John Howland (1481-1550). After that, I only get a name, 'Howland' b. 1450, d. ???.

Hello, I just found this site today. I'm a Howland, but my line of Howland's don't arrive in the US until early 1800's sometime. They come from Kent Co., UK, and live in Oswego, NY for some time. William and Hannah (Greenought, sp?) are as far back as I can go. Can anyone else contribute to information from this line? Everything else is "pilgrim" related, but I believe all Howlands are connected somehow.

Katrina and Sue, I am also a descendent of Henry Howland...if it is the Henry Howland that was married to Mary Simpson and had a son Samuel? That is all I have. DOB 1565 in Fenstanton, England? Let me know. I do not have his parents or his wife's parents yet. Sounds like he has some stories to go with him, but want to make sure he is the right one! thanks!

My husband descends from John Howland & Elizabeth Tilley> Desire Howland & John Gorham> Joseph Whilden/Whillden & Hannah Gorham> Josiah Crowell & Mary Whilldin> James Godfrey & Elishabee Crowell> James Godfrey & Phebe Townsend and on down the line through several of the Godfreys. I have picked up where my mother-in-law left off and work on these as I can.
