His grave marker is inscribed died "Aged 66 years" which indicates a birth of ca 1758-9 since he died on 25 May 1825, which would accomodate a birth on 15 Nov 1758.


However, Mark Lozer has supplied a birth date of Nov. 15, 1759 (not 1758) which he says is from a book titled "Thomas Howard & Elizabeth Armstrong Howard & their descendents", by Margaret Dequine; Mary Ann Hoppe; and Carolyn K Howard, and published/printed in Sudbury, Ohio ca 2007.


From Lozer email 23 Jan 2016: The Howard book has birth dates for Thomas and his family based on a family bible chart written 1889 by Agnes Howard McClarren.
Thomas Howard b. Nov 15, 1759 place Unknown (maybe NY) died May 25, 1825 at Gilead (Now Grand Rapids) Wood County, Ohio
married 17 Mar 1783 to Elizabeth Armstong b. Jan 14, 1761 in Pennsylvania, died Sept 17, 1810 in Benton, Ontario (now Yates) county New York. They were married in Mexico, Mifflin County PA.2,3,4,5 He married Elizabeth Armstrong, daughter of (?) Armstrong, on 17 March 1783 at Cumberland Co. (then), Pennsylvania, USA; Lozer [23 Jan 2016] cites a book titled "Thomas Howard & Elizabeth Armstrong Howard & their descendents", by Margaret Dequine; Mary Ann Hoppe; and Carolyn K Howard, and published/printed in Sudbury, Ohio ca 2007 as his source for the marriage date.

Note: At present I only speculate that the Elizabeth ARMSTRONG that Thomas HOWARD married was the Elizabeth who was sister of Alexander ARMSTRONG. This is based in part on the date of marriage and in part on the ARMSTRONG and HOWARD households being close together (same page) in the 1790 census.
Date of marriage is from SAR Application #40442 and may not be accurate since their daughter Sarah was already born in 1783 when she was mentioned in her Uncle Robert's June 1783 will.6,2,7,8,4 Thomas Howard died on 25 May 1825 at Gilead (now Grand Rapids), Wood Co., Ohio, USA.3 He was buried after 25 May 1825 at Howard Cemetery, Grand Rapids, Wood Co., Ohio, USA; from Find A Grave website:

Thomas Howard was listed as Epenetus Hart and Mary Armstrong's neighbor in a census in 1790 at Mifflin Co., Pennsylvania, USA; [Note: Next door to Alexander ARMSTRONG and John McLAIN; same paged a Thomas HOWARD. It is on the basis of the number of children in this household (9) that I speculate on the existence of two as yet unidentified children]

Thomas Howard appeared in the census of 1790 at Mifflin Co. (then), Pennsylvania, USA; [Note: There are two Thomas HOWARDs in the 1790 Mifflin Co. federal census: Thomas #1 is on the same page (p. 104) as Epenetus HART, Alexander ARMSTRONG, John MCLAIN and Hugh MCALLISTER; Thomas #2 is later, on p. 112 next to two ARMSTRONG households (Joseph and Daniel). I believe that Thomas #1 is the same Thomas who 1) served with Hugh McAllister and Epenetus Hart in 1782; 2) moved to (then) Ontario Co., NY ca 1793, 3) married an Elizabeth ARMSTRONG, and 4) appears in the 1800 census for Seneca Twp., Ontario Co., NY. I believe that the fact that the household of Thomas #1 is a mature family with apparently 6 children, while that of Thomas #2 is a couple with no children supports the conclusion that Thomas #1 is the Thomas who married an Elizabeth ARMSTRONG and moved to NY as Elizabeth (Armstrong) is mentioned in the 1783 will of her uncle as having a daughter Sarah.]

Thomas Howard and Thomas Lucas emigrated on 21 May 1821 from Grand Rapids, Wood Co., Ohio, USA;      per Historical Marker at Howard Cemetery: "Thomas Howard, aged 66, a Revolutionary War veteran, arrived at the head of the great rapids of the Maumee from New York State in 1822. Three cabins were erected for his family and the families of his two sons Edward and Robert..."
     per Leeson [1897:268-9]: "In the reminiscences of Dresden W. H. Howard, it is related that, in May, 1821, his grandfather, Thomas (aged 63 years), his father, Edward (aged 43), his uncle, Robert A. (aged 23), with their wives and children, left Yates county, New York, embarked on Capt. Anson reed's schooner at Cleveland, and on June 17 that year, landed at Orleans of the North."
     per Leeson [1897:471]: "Thomas Howard... came from Yates county, N. Y., in 1823 with his wife, a daughter Sidney, who afterward became Mrs. Howard Davidson, and his three sons - Edward, Robert A., and Richard M. W. with their respective families. Part of the family came by water, the rest taking the land route driving their livestock."
From Waggoner [1888:690-92]: Dresden W. H. Howard was born in Yates County, New York, November 3, 1817. He was a son of Edward, his grandfather being Thomas Howard. May 22, 1821, the grandfather, with his sons Edward, Robert A. and Richard, their wives and two children (Dresden and a cousin named Sidney), and a daughter of Sidney H. Nelson, left their pleasant homes on the banks of Seneca Lake, near Geneva, for the west. The grandfather rode on horseback, the families and small supplies of clothing and household goods being loaded into two two-horse covered wagons. In due time, over roads almost impassable, the party reached the then Village of Buffalo. Here, the grandfather, with the women and children, embarked on board a 30-ton Schooner (name not remembered), commanded by Captain Anson Reed, for a long and perilous voyage to Fort Meigs, 14 miles above the mouth of the Maumee River. This destination was reached at dusk, June 17th, after a trip of 26 days, where they were cordially welcomed by the few white settlers at "Orleans," the little hamlet under the Fort. Dresden's recollection of the scene that met his view on entering the mouth of the River, about 10 o'clock A.M., is yet very clear to him. The dark color of the water of the River was in strong contrast with that of the clear water of the Lake. The scene of chief interest as they slowly passed up the stream, consisted of the white tents of Indians camped on the West bank, from the house of Major Stickney (near Bush Street), to the mouth of Swan Creek - the Indians being there on business with Major Stickney, then Indian Agent for the Government. They were actively engaged in racing and other sports peculiar to Indians: but upon discovering the little Vessel, they gave one wild (to the passengers, unearthly) yell, and ran down the bank, to get as near as possible to the craft. While the boy was deeply interested in the scene, the women were crouched in deadly fear on the deck at such first view of the locality which was to be their home. The Vessel made slow progress up the River, with nothing to be seen but the primeval forest which lined its banks, and a deer and her fawn which had sought protection in the water from swarms of mosquitoes, or from some hunger wolf. In due time, the end of the journey was reached. The teams were many days behind the arrival of the Vessel, they having in bad roads - especially through the "Black Swamp" - more to overcome than the calms and adverse winds of the Lake. The real destination of the party was Tecumseh, or An-au-ba (now known as Ann Arbor), Michigan; but the persuasions of the Hollisters, Spaffords, Forsyths, General Hunt and other residents induced them to stop, when they soon were quartered in little cabins of bark-covered walls. Some cleared land was rented, and a small crop of corn, potatoes, pumpkins, squashes, etc., soon planted. With "dog-days" came ague and fever, attended by want and privation known to none but the pioneer. Several times the entire family was prostrated, with no one able to attend upon the sick. The frosts of October were patiently awaited as the only source of relief to sufferers; which season was made the more grateful for the abundant supplies of fish and corn-"pone," which it brought. The grandfather had little means with which to start in the new home. He first entered 160 acres of Government lands, where now is the Village of Woodville, Sandusky County; but the Black Swamp proved too much for him, and he abandoned his purchase, subsequently selling it to Amos E. Wood, the founder of Woodville. In 1822, lands were purchased at Grand Rapids, Wood County, when cabins were built for Edward, Robert A. and Richard Howard; and in the Spring of 1823 they cut a road from the Indian Mission, eight miles below, through a dense wilderness to the Grand Rapids of Maumee. And founded a settlement immediately opposite the Ottawa Indian Village of Kin-jo-i-no and Reservation of 12 miles square, at the head of the Rapids.
     All of the families, with the grandfather, lived upon their original purchases, cleared away the forests, and made for themselves comfortable homes (save Robert A., who sold his place in 1836, and moved to what now is Fulton County, where he died), and in due time were "gathered to their fathers," their bodies resting on the banks of the Maumee within hearing of the never-ceasing murmur of the Rapids.
     Edward Howard (the father of Dresden) was a Soldier in the War of 1812-15, as was Thomas in the Revolutionary War. The former was at the battles of Lundy's Lane and Fort Erie. He was never robust after the War, and died in 1841. The mother (Nancy Haight Howard) survived him until 1881, dying at the age of 84 years, and being buried beside her husband. The children were Dresden; one brother, James Monroe, born in Yates County, New York; and one sister (Anjinette), born in Wood County. James died in 1841; and the sister is the wife of Hon. George Laskey, of Toledo. Coming here in childhood, with Indian boys for playmates, Dresden learned the languages of the several tribes in the Valley, and became more or less attached to Indian life. His inclinations early turned toward Indian trade and the hunter's life. The fur trade with the tribes was then a lucrative business, and his readiness with their dialects made his services in demand by traders, who paid well for them. With others, he was employed by Government Agents in collecting the wandering bands for removal to their new homes beyond the Mississippi in 1832, and again in 1838. In 1832 he aided the removal, when they were transported across the country by wagons and on the backs of their ponies. For a boy, the trip was attractive. Scarcely any settlement was passed for the whole distance. The Indians were located on the banks of the Osage River (now in Kansas), where is the Town of Ottawa, name for the tribe. In 1840, Mr. Howard was employed by W. G. and Geo. W. Ewing, fur traders at Fort Wayne, Indiana, to take a stock of Indian goods up the Missouri River, and open trade with the Omahas, Missouries, lower Sioux, Pottawatomies and other tribes inhabiting the Valley and tributaries of that stream. His father and brother dying in 1841, made it necessary for him to return and care for an invalid mother and his sister, and accept the more quiet life of farming and civilization, for which his previous experience had done little toward fitting him. His school days (from seven to 10 years) were entirely spent at the "Old Indian Mission," 10 miles above Fort Meigs, in a School of 100 Indian children - he being the only White pupil, save a few Indian and French half-breed boys and girls. That School was organized by the Home Missionary Society of New England, and was closed upon the removal of the Indians in 1838.
     The tribes inhabiting the Valley of the Maumee, and also that of the Wabash and their tributaries, at the time of Mr. Howard's earliest recollections (and for many years before), were the Ottawas, Pottawatomies, Miamis, We-aws, Piankishaws, Shawnees and Delawares, with a few of the Ochibewas and Muncies. The principal Chiefs of the Ottawas were Na-wash, O-to-saw, Char-lo, Oeque-nox-ie, Kin-jo-a-no, Ot-to-kee, Wa-se-on, Wa-se-on-i-quet, and others/. Of the Pottawatomies were Waw-bon-see, Baw-beece, Me-te-ah, Win-a-meg; of the Miamis, La Fountain and Richard-ville, with many others, whose names are not recalled; of Shawnees, were Joseph and William Parks, whose Reservation was at Wa-pa-kon-neta. The Walkers (half-breeds) were principal men among the Wyandotts at Upper Sandusky. Turkey Foot (Mis-sis-sa-inzit), was a noted Ottawa Chief, as was O-to-saw. Little Turtle (Mis-she-kenee) perhaps was the most noted, as he was the most intelligent Chief of the Miamis, who, Mr. Howard things, lies buried near Fort Wayne, Indiana. Turkey Foot was buried near the rock from which he harangued his Braves when he fell with a bullet from one of Wayne's soldiers, August 20, 1794. Mr. Howard's memory is stored with facts and associations connected with the aboriginal tribes with whom he was so long intimate. When asked by Governor Noyes, of Ohio, why he always spoke with such special kindness of the Indians, he replied, "They have always, in childhood and in manhood, treated me with kindness, and I could not be ungrateful for their uniform generosity. Treat an Indian justly, and you will secure his friendship for life. Treat him illy, and you have his enmity for life." Mr. Howard's present residence is on the site of the old Indian Village of Winameg, Fulton County, where the former residents so long enjoyed savage life, and where so many of them found their last resting place, which is now carefully protected. The Red Man has taken his last drink from the shaded spring at the foot of the hill, his last look upon the landscape so long his pride, and now sleeps nearer the setting Sun. In the Spring of 1827-28, Mr. Howard - then a boy of 10 years - first visited that locality, and there ate his first bowl of hominy and roast venison, and took his first drink from the pure waters of the spring. The Indians had just returned from their Winter hunting-grounds in the pine and sugar-maple forest of the then wild Territory, now the fertile and rich State of Michigan, where they had enjoyed a successful hunt; bringing in a bountiful supply of Maple sugar (of which they were fond). They were having their annual dance or worship of the Great Spirit (Chi Manitoo), returning thanks for success in the hunt, and asking for a prosperous season to come. For the Summer, the women were to plant and how, while the men, besides lounging about, were to look for an occasional deer. Corn, beans and pumpkins were still planted there; but not by the faithful, patient squaws of former days.
     Mr. Howard, with all his early attachment for the primitive ways of the Indians, has not been backward in promoting the methods and means of Christian civilization. For forty years past he has been identified, to greater or less extent with the agricultural, the financial, the political, and the social movements of the age, seeking faithfully to meet his full duty in these several relations of life. In promoting the construction of good roads, elevating the farming interests, and the establishment of sound morals and general education, he has been active. In 1870 he represented the Tenth District on the State Board of Equalization. Elected to the State Senate in 1871 from the Thirty-Third District, he served in that body for two years. In 1860 he was Presidential Elector, casting the vote of the Fifth Congressional District for Abraham Lincoln. Of all his record in connection with elections, that which gives him his chief pride, was made in the fight for the exclusion of the sale of intoxicating liquors at Wauseon, in April, 1887. He was appointed by Governor Foraker, April 1, 1887, a Trustee of the Toledo Asylum for the Insane, constructed for the State, near Toledo. Mr. Howard was married in 1843 with Mary b. Copeland. There were born to them two children - Osceola E. M., Civil Engineer, of San Diego, California; and M. Agnes, now residing with her parents at Wauseon, Ohio.
per Knapp [1872:649-50]: "Thomas Howard, from Yates county, N. Y., landed at fort Meigs in the spring of 1823. He and part of the families made the trip from buffalo n a 30 ton schooner, commanded by Capt. Almon Reed - the teams and livestock being driven over land by another part of his family, which struck the Maumee at a point now known as East Toledo. From here they proceeded up the river to Fort Meigs, experiencing some difficulty in urging their livestock through the Indian camps, which at that time lined the banks of the Maumee, and snuffing danger afar off, the horses and cattle manifested greater fear of these lords of the forest than did their owners. The branches of the emigrating families, some taking the water, and others the overland route, and which came to the Maumee Valley at that time, consisted of his three sons, Edward, Robert A., and Richard M. W. Howard, and their several families. Subsequently these households, and also a daughter, Mrs. Sidney Howard Davison (now a resident of La Salle Co., Ill, and aged 77 years) removed to the head of the rapids of the Maumee (Gilead). Thomas Howard, born November 15, 1758, died at the head of the rapids, May 25, 1825."114,115,116,117

The fact is that Dickinson possesses and we have no doubt is the real owner of eighty-four acres of very fine land which he purchased nearly 20 years ago and has resided on ever since but as we are informed surely believe he made a conveyance of said land to a son of his after he was stricken from the pension roll under the law of 1820 and that his son has never been in possession, nor paid anything for the said land.
     The said Dickinson is also in possession of oxen, horses, cows which are claimed by his sons and daughters residing with him all of which we have no doubt in reality belong to him and which have been given away for the purposed of committing a fraud on the Government and thereby obtaining a pension, all of which is respectfully submitted by your obedient servants.

Mary Harbison1

F, #77805
Last Edited30 Dec 2015
     Mary Harbison married Hugh McAllister Sr. after 1730 at Pennsylvania, USA; Ellis & Hungerford [1886:834] says they married after Hugh moved to the Americas in 1730.1
     Mary Harbison was a mentioned with Hugh McAllister Jr.; from Ellis & Hungerford [1886:832-5]: Chapter XVI. Fayette Township. "At the December term of the Juniata County Court, in 1833, a petition was presented, asking for a new township to be formed from Fermanagh and Greenwood...The first settlers in this locality were designated as living on the North, the Middle or the South forks, which unite and form the Lost Creek, near Jerich...Samuel Mitchell and Hugh McAlister, Scotchmen, residing south of the Blue Ridge, after the opening of the New Purchase, started out to explore the country with a view of selecting a site on which to settle
     The tract of John Irwin, adjoining the Hoge tract, which was sold to Samuel Mitchell in 1756, was soon after sold to Hugh McAlister. He was of Scoth-Irish descent. His father was Hugh McAlister, who emigrated from the north of Ireland to this country in 1730, and married a Miss Harbison. they had three sons - John, Hugh and William. John settled early in 1755 in Sherman's Valley, and Hugh and William both settled in Lost Creek Valley.
     Hugh McAlister, Jr., settled upon his land in 1756. He joined the forces of Captain Forbes and served faithfully until the close of the Indian hostilities which then resulted from the conspiracy of Pontiac. The families then living in Lost Creek were again compelled to flee to Sherman's Valley, Carlisle and other places of safety, where their friends were congregated in greater numbers. At this time several of the men of the settlement were out with the forces of Captain Forbes. These families of McAlister, Mitcherl and others buried their pots and kettles, and taking the few things they could carry and typing packages pon their cattle, slowly and painfully made their way to Sherman's Valley and joined their friends.
     Hugh McAlister and his brother William were, in 1776, enlisted in Captain John Hamilton's forces, which joined Washington's forces the day after the capture of the Hessians at Trenton. Hugh was successively promoted to be lieutenant, captain and major. At the close of the war he was in command of the forces stationed at Potter's Fort (now Centre County), and commanded an expedition sent to punish the Indians for depredations committed near Great Island (noe Lock Haven) at the close of the revolution, and settled upon his farm and lived peacefully the remainder of his days. He died September 22, 1810, aged seventy-four years, and his wife, Sarah, died Julyl 6, 1802.
     The children of Hugh and Sarah McAlister were Robert, Hugh, John, William, Nancy and Polly.2

At the time of its settlement it was in Ulster County and was that county's seat. When Rockland County was split from Orange County in 1798, Newburgh and the other towns north of Moodna Creek were put in a redrawn Orange County. Newburgh thus lost its status as the county seat to Goshen. The former Ulster County courthouse still stands as Newburgh's old city courthouse building (currently used as municipal office space)."2,3 He died on 8 May 1847 at Angelica, Allegany Co., New York, USA, at age 76.2 He was buried after 8 May 1847 at Until the Day Dawn Cemetery, Angelica, Allegany Co., New York, USA; from Find A Grave Webstie:
