Message Board Post:
My Name is Bob Ross and I am also related to Harriet Howell Trevethan and most likely
your ancestor. Her sister, Eliza Jane Howell Sweet, was my Great Grandmother. This would
be the family of which I am investigating-- The Thomas Howell/ Eduvigis Margarita
Castro-Salazar marriage. There were 13 girls and 3 boys. The name Soto does come up as a
spouse of Eliza's sister Marianna (aka Mary Ann aka Mary) Born 1866. There is another
Mary, however, who was the first born child (in 1856). I am sometimes led offtrack, but
associate the elder Mary with a spouse named Ed Sawyer of Watsonville.
I know the original for this thread is almost 10 years old, but I hope it reaches you. I
have a tree formed on Ancestry.com
, but am not sure how to tell you how to get there.
Maybe if you search for Thomas Howell, born 1832, lived in Santa Cruz or Branciforte...or
use Harriet Howell, Susan Frey, Eliza Howell, Eliza Sweet, Georgia Valencia, Paul Sweet,
Frank Howell, Clara J Rodriguez...you can find me as a fellow "searcher".
Then, the ID should be bob.ross682(a)gmail.com , rorex6, or (the tree name) SWEET and
HOWELL of Santa Cruz. Good Luck, Bob Ross bob.ross682(a)gmail.com
