Howell was married first to Rebecca Willis who died in 1756 and is believed to be the mother of Ambrose who was born in 1753. Howell then married Marian May and had two more children at least: Isaac in 1763 and Reuben in 1769. Oma Richardson was the daughter of Drury (and Sara "Sally" Richardson) born about 1745 in Bladen co NC and died May 1811 in Moore Co NC. Drury was the son of John Richardson born about 1720 in Moore Co NC, married Nancy/Mary, and died about 1777. John was the son of Stephen Richardson born about 1680 in Wales and died in NC.
