Notes on Sources

This Genealogy is based on the Howe Genealogies by Daniel Wait Howe published in 1929 by NEHGS of the brothers Abraham Howe of Roxbury and James Howe of Ipswich, John Howe of Marlborough, and other original Howe settlers, augmented by my own and my family's research. Facts where no source is given, should be attributed to the published text. The information was compiled in Family Tree Maker, saved as a GEDCOM file, and translated into web pages by The Next Generation software.

The Coat of Arms at the upper right is a copy of the Coat of Arms hanging in the Wayside Inn and printed in the Howe Family Gathering book. If you want a larger copy, link to Coat of Arms.
