Bio Photo Like a tiny seed
That fell to earth.
When no one cared
Or knew it's worth.

Through wind and rain
Sleet and snow.
It sprouted roots.
And began to grow.

Now Whoever thought
That you and me.
Would be one branch
Of that mighty tree.

Thomas Howard Marriage to Polly Patrick
Hi Sherry,
Thank you for your reply. The only way a marriage between Thomas Howard and Polly Patrick works is if Frances Jackson had died in 1805 as several people including Barbara Pointer falsely claim. Frances Jackson Howard died sometime after 1871. "On 2 Dec. 1871 in Magoffin County KY Mrs. Frances Howard 90, applied for a pension declaring that she married Thomas Howardon or about 15 Aug. 1796 and that he died on 27 Jan. 1853" Transcribed and annotated by C. Leon Harris.
"Thomas and Francis Howard moved to Bourbon Co., Kentucky before 1800 [Tax List]. All of their other children, starting with Matilda (1802) were born in Kentucky. (part of Bourbon Co. changed to Floyd Co., to Perry Co., to Morgan Co., and later to Magoffin Co.).
Thomas Howard died 27 January 1853, on Paint Creek, Morgan Co., Kentucky. He was buried at the "Mouth of Coon" Cemetery, [Raccoon Creek, near Lick Creek Rd., north of Salyersville] Magoffin Co., Kentucky. His wife, Francis Jackson Howard, died sometime after 1871 in Magoffin Co., Kentucky". This was included in the Howard Family Cherokee Heritage. Connie Wireman does not offer any documented source that show Polly Patrick ever existed. No one, including Babbara Pointer has any sources for one event in Polly's life. Don't you find this strange?
Good wishes. Rita

Frances [ Jackson] Howard
Frances certainly did die "sometime after 1805".
In 1850 Frances [Jackson] Howard was living with her husband, Thomas Howard. Documented Source: 1850 United States Federal Census. Thomas spent his entire married life with Frances Jackson. There isn't one mention of any Mary Ann "Polly" Patrick in the family history. This marriage is nonsense!

Mary Polly Patrick/Thomas (1770)
Do you know if there are any records that Mary Polly Patrick was the mother of James,Henry,Reubin,Andrew and Nancy? My next question is, If she is, how would Thomas have been in the 1850 census with Frances?

Copying photos
THANK YOU for your notes about the copying of pictures. I feel the same way as you but the genealogy thieves still copy and post elsewhere.
The least they could do is be honest and give credit where it is due---but then they wouldn't have the glory of posting pics.
Your notes made my day

RE: Mary Ann
I have found where Mary Ann Polly Patrick married MOSES Howard (Thomas' firstborn) and I have found a marriage in 1804 between Amelia Patrick and Thomas C. Howard. THOSE dates work, but I still have to verify, as I can find no middle initial on Thomas. Do you have any idea as to whether Frances Jackson died, perhaps in childbirth, or did they divorce?
