Re: John Howell. b. Va
From the book "BONHAM AND RELATED FAMILY LINES A FAMILY GENEALOGY FROM THE MAYFLOWER TO THE 1990's" by Howard E. Bonham, copyright 1996:
1. Elizabeth Bonham, daughter of Benjamin and Phoebe (Oney) Bonham was born 1775 in VA; married John Howell, 4 Aug 1804; d 1850 in OH; buried in Lebanon Cemetery, Linton, IN.
Elizabeth and John Howell had: John Howell, Jr. born 1814 in VA; married Phoebe Seward in 1837.
2.Rachel Bonham, daughter of Benjamin and Phoebe (Oney) Bonham was born 1782 in VA; married William Howell, 10 Mar. 1806; died in Ohio.
The book mentions that this Bonham family was in Wythe Co in 1790; Fredrick Co VA from 1782-1788; lived in Loudoun Co. VA until 1793, then in 1794 moved to Fauquier Co, VA. They later moved back to Frederick Co, where at least three of the Bonham sons were ministers. (I assume the Howell boys were nearby at the time of their marriages to the Bonham girls.)There is more information about the Bonham siblings, if anyone needs it.
