- Married: 24 Dec 1783, Manchester, Bennington, Vermont
JOHN HOWARD and his brother GIDEON bought land in Bennington in January 1789. GIDEON sold part of this in 1791 at which time he was living in Holland Patent, New York. The next record for these families found to date is the 1792 Oneida tax list for the area of Fort Stanwix (Rome, New York). The Jefferson County history suggests they came via the Black River with others from New England seeking home sites about 1798 and that John G. Howard had 150 acres of land. Perhaps this should have said JOHN and G. HOWARD. Although the 1800 census indicates John had two sons and five daughters, the only two found on Bennington records are Mehala born 8 October 1784 and Gehazi born 13 October 1786. He married 24 Dec 1783 at Manchester, Bennington County, Vermont
John married Lavinah Harris on 24 Dec 1783 in Manchester, Bennington, Vermont.
