About Angeline Mallory

In 1832 George and Angeline Howe moved with their children to Missouri and then to Illinois. In 1835 George Howe joined an armed expedition sent against the Indians in the Black Hawk War. He disappeared near Galena, Illinois. His body was never recovered, so his family presumed him to be dead or captured. Angeline took their three small children and moved back to her father's home in Kentucky.

In the spring of 1838 Angeline returned to Illinois. She arrived in Grand Prairie, Vermilion County, Illinois where she had relatives on 5/6 April 1838. She appears on the 1840 census in Coles County, probably in the area that later became Douglas County. At that time the area was pioneer country. She sent her children to subscription schools but was very poor. In 1840 she was struggling to care for her children and was forced to apprentice her son William Howe and an unnamed daughter to William J. West, a neighboring farmer.

She appears on the 1840 census at Coles County as Angeline Howe. Her household consisted of 1 female 20-30 (herself), 1 male 5-10 (son James), and 1 female under 5 (probably daughter Cornelia). Her son William and an unnamed daughter were probably living with William West. West appears on the 1840 census at Coles County. His household consisted of 1 male 20-30 (himself), 1 female 20-30 (his wife, probably Mary), 1 male 10-15 (probably William Howe), and 1 female 5-10 (probably Mary Howe).

In 1842 Angeline's first husband was pronounced legally dead and she remarried. Her new husband was living in Champaign County at the time of the 1840 census, and it is likely that they lived there from the time of their marriage.

In 1853 Angeline's son William Howe settled in Coles County (which became Douglas County in 1859), and in 1854 her son James Howe settled there. In 1856 Angeline and her husband John were in living in Dallas County, Iowa.

Angeline was back in Illinois at the time of her death. The mortality schedule for the 1860 census of Douglas County says she was a widow and died of lung fever. However, her husband was still living and appears on the 1850 census near his daughter Orilla Morriston and son-in-law Hooper Morain in Dallas County, Iowa. At the time of her death her children ranged in age from 11 to 30. Her son Robert was with his father in Iowa, and her daughter Elizabeth was living with Elizabeth's half-brother William Howe in Champaign County.
