Hi there.My name is Michael Grady Howell from Fort Worth, TX.The information I have has been verified several times.My aunt Frances moved from Sedona back to Georgia to live out her last days.She left with me information on our Howell family moving westward to AZ.
She lead me to my grandfather John Stephen Howell m. Martha S. Sweatt and their family living in Ramer, Montgomery County, AL.Just southeast of Montgomery, AL and northeast of Mobile, AL. Two brothers William Henderson and John Thomas eventually moved south to FL after marrying. My grandfather Joseph Stephen Howell moved to TX. His uncle William Travis Howell also moved to TX.
With the groundwork layed for me. We know that my W.R.Howell married Comfort Sullivan in SC/NC? and moved from Sumter, SC to AL between 1831-1837. Several families moved together and Comfort's brother JACKSON Sullivan also moved to AL.
Your JACKSON HOWELL maybe the link to W.R. Howell's family in Sumter who moved to LA. This would make sense since I find it hard to believe that my grandfather would move from AL to TX without family in LA. The first name fits with Comfort's family names and her married name.
Let me know if any of this relates in anyway to your JACKSON.
Thank you and bless you and your family for bringing everyone together.
