. m 7 Dec 1779 Upper Marlboro, Prince George's Co, Md to Tamar Gibbons, by Thomas John Claggett, an Episcopal priest (who later
. became Washington's first Senate Chaplain). Her name was given as Frances in marr record by some accounts. She may be the
. same as the "Anny" listed as Charles' wife in his will, which is sometimes read as "Amy", and whose name was "Eamy" in an 1816
. 1798 Frederick Co, Md debenture: Charles Howes ceded land in Prince George's Co, Md to Mary Howes, of same county. He men-
. tioned that this land was owned by his father Henry Howes, who had recently died. That same year, in Berkeley Co, Va,
. Henry Howes signed over his interest in this same land to Mary Howes of Md. The language in this document insinuates that
. Henry's father was Henry. So apparently Charles and Henry were brothers. Mary could have been their mother or sister.
