Re: Hannah Lightfoot - The Fair Quaker
Patience Lightfoot married Cap. John Howard. She was his fourth wife. He first married Lucy, then Hanna, then Mariah. My records show that she is buried at St. Stephen, N.B. but her name is on her husband's stone. He is buried at St. Paul's Cemetery, Hampton, N.B. I have seen Capt. John's burial site. There are eleven children listed for that family so we hope she did have a lot of patience. By the way native Canadians always refer to the city as Saint John to differentiate it from St. John's Quebec or St. Johns Newfoundland. Would you like the names of the children? Capt. John was originally a member of the King's Orange Rangers. My source is the book Loyalists All p. 49, compiled and edited by Gail Bonsall Pipes, 1985.
