[This is from an email on the genealogy webpage of Diana Gale Matthiesen of Gainesville, FL, and Saratoga, CA. Posted under sources for Matthew Howard, Gentleman. It cites the work of Henry Wright Newman in his book, "Anne Arundel Gentry." On the web at: dgmweb.net/genealogy/FGS/H/HowardMathew-Anne_.shtml ] 


Email from Becky Fox <beckfox @ aol.com> (28 Jun 2003):

" ... Henry Wright Newman, who wrote "Anne Arundel Gentry," proves that Cornelius Howard's wife was Elizabeth Gorsuch. He is a direct descendant of Cornelius and Elizabeth, and says, "For fifty or more years the identity of my ancestress, Elizabeth, the wife of Captain Cornelius Howard, has haunted me." He obviously put a lot of time, thought and research of primary sources into his conclusion.

On pages 261-261, he details the evidence from primary sources which prove that Elizabeth Gorsuch was the wife of Cornelius Howard. Among other things: 1) in the 1663 will of Capt. John Sisson, husband of her sister Frances Gorsuch, Cornelius Howard is called "brother," is named executor of Sisson's will, is asked to look after Sisson's wife and children, and is bequeathed indentured servant, Richard Warfield; 2) a will of Cornelius Howard written in 1663 called John Sisson "brother" and named him executor of his will; 3) in 1671 Cornelius Howard was named guardian to John Todd, son of sister Anne Gorsuch and Capt. Thomas Todd's son; 4) in the 1690 will of Lancelot Todd, son of her sister Anne Gorsuch and Capt. Thomas Todd, Elizabeth is named as daughter Mary Todd's "Aunt Elizabeth Howard." These records show pretty clearly that Elizabeth Howard, Anne Todd and Frances Sisson were sisters..."
