About Calvin Hickman Howell

Calvin H. Howell was a Choctaw Chief

Calvin H. Howell came from Mississippi when the Choctaw Indians came to this country in 1832.

My grandfather, Calvin H. Howell, settled a quarter of a mile north of Eagletown where he built a fine mission. He owned many slaves to do the work and he put in a large plantation.

Around the house [,] he had big orchards, vineyard, garden, rice patch. One of the pear trees is standing there yet.

My grandparents raised a large family of nine children, John, Margaret, Mary, Edward, Calvin, Ellen, Tom P., and Fannie Howell. In the time of war, grandfather died in 1865.
