Craig Sheldon's Note: I also came across a book (on Google Book Search) about Howard's Party; this book only lists two sons of Henry JONES and Emily HOWARD - however, the gap between when these two sons were born is ten years (1841 and 1851) plenty of space to include two daughters. The book is called "Through the chequered path: the story of William Howard's party of 1820 settlers" written by Pamela Barnes.

"... the year 1842 had begun with a visit to Uitenhage where their daughter Emily and her husband Henry Jones were now living and teaching, their first child Henry having put in an appearance the previous year."

This is the entry for Emily's sister, Esther HOWARD: b6 Esther Arabella * Salem Hills c. 1823 died Grahamstown Nov. 1828
