Hello. Thank you so much for responding to my query. From what I know, John G. Howse was born March 9, 1805 in either SC or GA. He died August 22, 1863 in Jackson, Barrow County, Georgia. He married a Margaret Harriett Shields on August 18, 1835 in Jefferson, Jackson County, Georgia. They had children: James Lawrence, John Harris, William LaFayette, Henry Jackson, Marcus Cicero, Mary Jane, Margaret Elizabeth, Francie Caroline, and Missouri Ann Elizabeth. John's father was John Blanton Howse b. 1777 in SC and d. 1857 in Jackson, Barrow County, Georgia. John Blanton Howse's father was Samuel (Grandshire) Howse, b. probably in England. I will send you a private e-mail with the name of a family member who researches this line further in depth.
