My husband is descended from John Howard and Mary Allison, she being a daughter of Hugh Allison.
My husband's uncle told me when I began to do genealogy in the 1960s that John Howard was shot and left for dead by bushwhackers. When I was doing research I discovered that Hugh Allison was his father-in-law.
So when I later found out that Hugh Allison had been killed by bushwhackers I assumed that John Howard had been there. This may not have been the case but....
John Howard is the one brick wall that I have never been able to breach. I have no idea who his parents were. Nor do I know who his first wife was.
This is what I know about John Howard. These are my research notes
