2005 Hickman Reunion

2005 Hickman Family Reunion - Held at the Hickman House, Dorchester, New Brunswick


Fall 2018 - 19th year of this research. 

Dear Reader, 

I hope these pages help you discover a bit more of your own family history. 

What can I do here? 

  • Find your ancestors - Perhaps start by searching for just your father's or mother's last name (leave the first name blank for now) using the search box in the upper right corner of this page. The system provides a list of everyone in the database that matches. (results for Howell for example).  The system does not allow searching for living persons.  

  • View details, photos and documents - From your list above, click on any name to see the individual detail page showing dates, parents, siblings, spouses, children, notes, sources, maps and whatever photos and documents I have. 

  • Generate charts and reports -Then from the individual detail page, click on the Ancestors tab at the top to see a Fan Chart of that persons ancestors. (example). Every name in the Fan Chart is also clickable for details. Then try some of the other types of reports. There are many other things to do, but that should get you started!

There are two main sections to this site: 

 1. The Family Trees section consists of a database over 10,000 individuals, 3,700+ families, and 1,950+ surnames - each person selected and entered by yours truly from information gathered since 1999. Almost everyone in the database is somehow connected to either Susan's or my family lines. 

The 900+ sources for this data include brothers, sisters, parents, uncles, aunts and grandparents, and an ever growing list of cousins that I regularly correspond with. Contributors include: 

  • Marguerite Freeney Howard - provided the initial inspiration for this site and much research on her ancestors.
  • J. Spencer Howell - provided the inspiration and details to start on the Howell, Campbell, Stone and Davison lines.
  • W. Darcy McKeough - provided much correspondence and a lifetime of work on the Stone line; 
  • Emily Campbell Price - developed an extensive genealogy on our Campbell line called "The Campbell's of Auchindrain"; 
  • Ted Lollis and Judi Wallbridge McCrae - contributed extensively on the Campbell line; 
  • Stuart Davison and the DesBrisay Museum staff - in Bridgewater Nova Scotia provided much assistance on the Davison Family; 
  • Marlene Hickman - has provided her 20 years of research on the Hickman Family of New Brunswick, NS. 
  • Betty Howell Traver - contributed many original photos and documents that helped us trace the Howell line; 
  • Betty Harrington Deveraux - provided wonderful photos and a genealogy of the Webster line; 
  • Wendy Smythe - provided her genealogy on the Boyer Family; 
  • Betty Parker Wolfe - provided her genealogy of the Davison Family; 
  • Jim Brittain, Jr. - contributed hundreds of original pages from the files of Albert Sidney Howell. 

Much interesting information is also gathered during our little Genealogy Safaris to towns in Georgia, Maryland, New Brunswick, New England, Nova Scotia, and Pennsylvania. Scanned copies of many documents and photos gathered during these visits are also in the database. 

 2. The Genealogue - highlights interesting findings in this research. Most of the articles contain links to records in the Family Trees database so it provides a quick way to get a higher level view and insights into the information.  You can also limit the Genealogue articles to just those that pertain to one of Susan's or my family lines starting with Boyer, Carlin, Carter, Freeney, Howard, Howell, Stone or Umlauf. So limiting articles by Howell will also get articles on Davison, Heard and Hickman lines for example.

I always enjoy hearing from you - so drop a line and say hello! Please don't hesitate to point out something that looks wrong to you, or to offer any new or more complete information than what you see - I'm very interested. 

Best of luck in your research, and thanks for visiting! 

Sincerely, 
John S. Howell, Jr.

Handwritten notes by Betty H. Traver.

Origins of Henry Alonzo Howell's given names by Elizabeth Howell Traver :

Henry Alonzo Howell was named for two soldiers killed in wars. "Henry" was for Henry Heard, Henry Alonzo Howell's uncle, who died at Pine Mountain during Sherman's March to the Sea in August 1864.

Alonzo McBride was the son of John McBride, surveyor general of Georgia. After John McBride died, the family moved with the Howell's to Houston County (Perry, GA). Being the oldest, he enlisted in Gen. Andrew Jackson's war against the Indians in Alabama, where he was killed. His will is in the courthouse in Perry, Jimmy Brittain's mother saw it written just before he left for the Army. Alonzo Church, early president of the University of Georgia was John McBride's best friend, so he named his eldest son for him. [JSH notes: Alonzo Church b. 1793 in Brattleboro, VT, graduated Middlebury College and moved to GA in 1816]
