5x Great Grandmother - Elizabeth C. Veazey

Betty Howell Traver had another surprise for us in her album – a photo of Elizabeth C. Veazey who married John McBride (1793– 1828).  She was married several times after John McBride died – but so far the only other name I have for her is ‘Great Grandmother Eley’.

Elizabeth Veazey is the 5x great grandmother of the youngest members of our Howell line today.  See chart here.5Gens

Albert Sidney Howell Jr.'s - McKinney Howell chart

During a visit last week, Betty Howell Traver and Jim Brittain provided a copy of a handwritten Howell chart from the records of Albert Sidney Howell, Jr. The starting point is McKinney Howell.  The chart re-confirms much of what we already know, and provides the names of some “new” cousins including: Reed, Holden, Madison and Grimes.

The chart should be of interest to Julia Howell Traylor Dyar, as well as Mark McBride Howell as it shows their lines.

Magnolia Cemetery - Thompson

Thompson -> Heard -> Howell

William Thompson (1781–1839) and his wife Hannah Brooks (1789–1872) are the 4x great grandparents of the Howell’s in my generation.  I learned last week during a visit with Jim Brittain and Betty Howell Traver that they are buried in the Magnolia Cemetery, Augusta, Georgia, along with many of their family.  

Jim Brittain provided photos and a plot map – The photos are now linked back to the database entry for each person.

The marker describing the plot reads: 

“William and Hannah Thompson and the following members of their family, Edmund Heard, Ellen Heard, Henry Heard, Hannah Heard, Daniel B. Thompson, Elizabeth Thompson, Sarah Thompson, Mary Thompson, Jane Thompson, James Thompson, Jane Thompson, Sarah J. Lathrop”
