The first Howery I know came from Virginia. His name was Joseph and was born in 1803. He married Lodema Kingsley who was born in New York, in 1815. They had nine children, I think. All were born in Indiana. Samuel, Axy Jane, Charles Snider (my Great Grandfather), Jacob, Mariah, Emily, James, Mary, and Hilda. Charles lived in Brookfield, MO with his wife Rebecca Alice McClintick. Some of Charles' children moved to Colorado. They were Joseph Finley Howery, and Mayme Lodema Howery who married William Singleton.
