About Thomas Howard, Sr.

From THE HOWARDS OF EASTERN KENTUCKY published by the Magoffin County Historical Society, c1985

We may have more appropriately said "The Howard Families of America" as this illustrious family has dispersed itself so widely. Descendants of the early Howard settlers of Eastern Kentucky can be found in every state of the union. Eastern Kentucky has been noted for its large clannish families. The Howard family may well rank among the largest of these families. It could be noted that the Howard's were great believers in populating the land, as they averaged ten or more offspring and some are actually credited with fathering more than 25 children. The origin of the Howard name has been a challenge to previous publications and writers have offered differing viewpoints. This will be very lightly touched upon in this volume. There is speculation that the Howards are of the royalty of England through a Sir Thomas Howard.
