Thank you for your responses,(about Tarbutton. editor) We have been confused by all the Joseph’s, William’s and Robert’s too. Ron must have married me to bring another Elizabeth to the family! I am fairly confident that if we can determine William B’s parents without a doubt, that the line will tie to the Maryland line that is well documented. My husband, Ron, is the grandson of Robert Howard, born to Joseph A. and Mary Ann Sanders. Robert Howard was a noted aviation pioneer in Oklahoma.
If you have any suggestions on other areas to search, we live in Denton, which is an easy trip to the Wood County area.
