.              became Washington's first Senate Chaplain).  Her name was given as Frances in marr record by some accounts.  She may be the

.                  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.
