There were a Samuel HOWARDS listed in the 1830 census for Muskingum, Montgomery, Crawford, Butler and Ross Counties but I do not know if he is the right one for any of these so would appreciate any help . There may be some record of William Henry HOWARD's birth in one of these counties to give a clue which one is the right Samuel. Thank you.
