My line of Howlands (descended from Henry) originated in RI and moved to Florida. I am not sure when the move took place. I suspect that either William Church Howland or his son, Edward Church moved to Florida. Maybe there was a stop-over in MD. I have always been under the impression the Agnew was from Baltimore. I do know that Veronica Magdelene (or Magdalena) was from a devout Catholic family, and she probably had sisters who were nuns. I have to admit that I know very little about the Agnew family. How many branches are there? How many Veronica Magdelenes do you have? Seriously, even the slightest clue may help.
