Howell, Daniel L.-1st Regiment, NC Foot Volunteers

Private Daniel L. Howell,(b.4/12/1828-d.5/12?/1864), of company D (the "Goldsboro Volunteers"), 4th Regiment NC State Troops.
The "Goldsboro Volunteers", began organizing in Wayne Co. on 4/15/1861,for 12 month's service and were assigned to the 9th Regiment NC Volunteers. That regiment never completed its organization,however,on 6/28 the "Volunteers" mustered back in for the duration of the war. They joined the 4th Regiment NC State Troops as Company D.

Daniel L. Howell,32,of Wayne Co., served in the Mexican War in the 1st Regiment, NC Foot Volunteers. He enlisted as a corporal in the "Goldsboro Volunteers", on 5/22/1861, and probably because of his prior military experience, received promotions to sergeant and 1st sergeant. Some unspecified misdeed resulted in his reduction to ranks on 5/7/1863;he soldiered on,however,as a private until mortally wounded in the groin at Spotsylvania Court House, 5/12/1864- one of the forty-six members of the 4th NC to die in that battle.

Daniel married to Charity Flowers (b.1828-d.1910),my ggg grandparents. Thier son,Benjamin Haywood Howell(b1850-d1920)married Edith Marie Norris(b1849-d1903),my gg grandparents.They had 4 children: James Robert(b1874-d1957)married 1st wife,Jeanette(Nettie) Eubanks(b1876-1962)2nd wife Ada Blizzard(b?/d?), Benjamin Clarence(b1885)married Mamie Dail Howell(b?/d?), Cornelia(b1879-d1907)(m?/b?/d?),and Florida(b1876-d1957)married Lundy Williams(b1875-d1926).
Benjamin Clarence Howell and Mamie Dail Howell are my grandparents.I have very little info on her or him.
If anyone has any info on this line of Howell's I would love to share other family names,birth and death dates, and some photographs.
