John, I did receive your e-mail. I believe Harriet was a BUSH; hence, James BUSH HOWARD (1840-1921).Also i have been in touch with someone who has done research on the BUSHfamily andin the estate of William BUSH, who died 1837 Edgefield, SC, it refers to Henry and Harriet Howard.Harriet's mothermay have been the DeLoach and another source has her as Elizabeth Burgess. As far as James Bush HOWARDS's date of birth.It had to be 1812 or 1813.My grandmother had in her notes of family history that he was born in 1812.He is listed in the 1850 Census of Edgefield County, SC as 37 years old, it just depends if he turned 37 before or after the census was taken. Again, what child of JBH do you descend from?Are you descended from JBH's first wife? The siblings of JBH are: Christianna Elizabeth b. c.1842 David R. b. c.1844 Harriet H. b. c.1848. Where did you get the name William Henry HOWARD for JBH's father?I have only heard Henry so far. I have a copy of a photo of JBH.If interested let me know. Thanks.
