My grandparents, Wesley and Jewel Mears Howard, were married at caney and lived there for years.My great grandpa was John H Howard.He married Alpha Dollar and had several children.John H Howard's dad was John Samuel Howard.He and his wife Jane McCanless are buried at Caney.This is as far back as I know about my Howard line.
If anyone knows anything about the origins of my Howard's please contact me.I've been trying to trace where they came from before Caney.
Someone told me that John Samuel Howard once operated a ferry at Willis on the Red River before moving to Caney.
Don't know who John Samuel's dad was or where he may have moved to this area from.
Please contact me if you know anything at all about this family.
