14: Hannah Farris Howard Posted be Posted by TaNea Graves "I found this handwritten story in papers from my grandfather, Paul Howard" (son of Ernest Howard, grandson of Alonzo Howard, great grandson of Hannah Howard). I do not know who wrote the story, but this is what it reads: According to James L. Houston of Independence, MO on 11-18-1992 Hanna Farris Howard found it difficult to receive a widow's pension from Stephen Howard's Civil War Service after his death. There is/was speculation that Stephen had been or was still legally married before he married Hanna Farris in Texas. Some thought he had a first wife in Duplin, North Carolina, where he was born. After the war he would list his home & birthplace as Tennessee. Family members would say that Stephen would leave for weeks & months at a time from his home with Hannah in Miller County. Perhaps he kept in contact with his first family. Nevertheless, it appears that many questions were asked & many affidavits required concerning a previous marriage. The widow's pension of $12.00 was finally granted to Hannah. James Houston first started helping me in 2001 - He passed away a couple years ago. Mary Ellis

15: Stephen Howard Posted by Posted by TaNea Graves I found this story in some papers from my grandfather, Paul Howard (son of Ernest, grandson of Alonzo, great-grandson of Stephen). I do not know who wrote the story. According to research of James L. Houston: Stephen Howard was a Bushwhacker. (One who would rob and murder people along the trail.) Stephen did not farm to speak of nor had any gainful employment. Stephen would leave home for weeks & months at a time. Perhaps he travelled back east to see his first family or perhaps he was on the road travelling with fellow bushwhackers? Usually when he did return home to Hannah he would be drunk. He was a mean drunk and would want to refight the Civil War. As the story is told: Stephen rode up home drunk after a long trip. Hanna told the kids to quickly hide. One of the kids ducked into the cow's stall. At the time barns were attached to the house to protect the stock and grain safe from bushwhackers. Stephen took a shot at the kid diving between the cow & calf in the stall. The bullet missed the kid and killed the family's one cow. Only Hannah, the kids, and one calf lived through this episode. I am unsure if this story illustrates Stephen's death or not, but wanted to share it. I would love other information about this colorful character.

And I, Stephen Howard, do solemnly swear, that I will bear true faith and Allegiance to the United States of America, and that I will serve them honestly and faithfully against all their enemies or opposers whomsoever; and that I will observe and obey the orders of the President of the United States of America, and then orders of the Officers appointed over me, according to the "Rules and Articles of War". Sworn and subscribed to, at Point Lookout, Maryland this seventh day of June 1864. Before E. Williams, 2nd Lt. 1st U.S. Volunteer Infantry. Stephen Howard: I certify, ON HONOR, that I have carefully examined the above named volunteer, agreeably to the General Regulations of the Army, and that, in my opinion, he is free from bodily defects and mental infirmity, which would in any way disqualify him from performing the duties of a soldier. Rob Miller, Asst. Surgeon, 4th RW Examining Surgeon. I certify, ON HONOR, that I have minutely inspected the Volunteer, Stephen Howard, previously to this enlistment and that he was entirely sober when enlisted: that, to the best of my judgment and belief, he is of lawful age; and that, in accepting him as duly qualified to perform the duties of an able-bodied soldier.

Williams, Lt., 1st Regiment of the U.S. Volunteers, Recruiting Officer. Stephen was married to Mary 'Polly' when he went into the service, there is no indication of when she died or that he divorced her. When he was forced to fight for the Union he went to Texas and somewhere he met Hannah and they married. Was it legal or was he a bigamist? We may never know. | 15

32: Thomas Tart was a soldier in the American Revolution, having enlisted July 27, 1778 in Bertie County where he was living with his father. He served one year and ten months. This is more fully described in the chapter on Old Soldiers, in The Heritage of Sampson County, North Carolina 1784-1984 TART, Thomas 1761-1850 STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, SAMPSON COUNTY On this 15th of August, 1833, personally appeared before us, James Bennett and John King, two of the justices of peace in and for the county Aforesaid, Thomas Tart, a resident of Sampson County in the state of North Carolina, aged 72 years. Who being first duly sworn according to Law, doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832. That he entered the Service of the United States under the following named officers and Served as herein stated. That as near as he can recollect, it was in the month of June, 1779 (Actually enlisted July 20, 1778), a draft was to take place in the Company to which he belonged, for the term of nine months, that the Company was to furnish six men, that in order not to stand the draft, the Company made up two hundred dollars continental money to any one who would volunteer. Rather than be drafted he took the money and volunteered under command of captain William Williams; and that himself and what men were drafted from the regiment rendezvous at Windsor, Bertie County and remained there about a week, and from Windsor they were Marched to the town of Halifax in Halifax County. Before they arrived at Halifax they met some continental officers who took command of the Militia. When they arrived at Halifax, there was a considerable army Stationed there. He was then placed in a regiment commanded by Colonel Hogan, Major Thomas Hogg, Captain Redding Blount and Lt. Rueben Wilkinson. | 30

33: They were stationed there as much as three or four weeks. They then Marched from Halifax to west point fort on the north river, and as he Understood, to fill up the Third North Carolina Regiment. They marched Under command of the continental officers already named. When the regiment got to New Kent County, Virginia, Lt. Wilkinson, got a parole, as he supposed, to visit his father in said county, and took him (Thomas Tart) along to wait on the lieutenant. After staying with the father of Lt. Wilkinson for some time, they took off after the army, but never over took them until they got to West Point. They went through Richmond, Fredericksburg, Alexandria in Virginia, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Princeton, NJ. When they arrived at West Point they found their regiment back of the Fort on the commons. There was several armies stationed there and about the area. There was a large chain stretched across the river, as he reported, to prevent the British shipping from going up river. Thomas Reported that he was never in any battles but nearly all the time for Which he volunteered he had to wait on his captain and lieutenant. Lt. Wilkinson and Lt. Yarborough of another company fought a duel, and Lt. Wilkinson was wounded in the left arm. They went up the river to a town called New Windsor and to the hospital. While there and the care of a doctor, time expired on our enlistment (April 20, 1779). Our Commander, Big William Matfoot, John Male, John Hoggard, Patrick Hoggard, And Nathan Cobb were all discharged and left for Bertie County North Carolina, Lt. Wilkinson sent Thomas to Philadelphia to find Colonel Hogan To get his discharge. Hogan by then was a general and he ordered Thomas to be inoculated for the Smallpox. Thomas was sent to the hospital in Philadelphia. And before he was over the Smallpox, he was taken ill with The Putrid fever and his life was for some time despaired of. | 31

34: When Thomas was well enough to leave the hospital, he returned to General Hogan and this time obtained a discharge. He was told that he could go home, however he was still feeble and unable to make the long walk alone to North Carolina and was at a loss as what to do. He was told that he might get a job aboard a ship to the West Indies on a trading voyage. Thomas signed up on the ship Clay (actually named Jay), formerly called the ship Liverpool. (This 18-gun vessel with Captain Courter also had 100 men as American Privateers.) They sailed from the port of Philadelphia in August of 1779, and when they were three days out from the Cape of Delaware, they captured English Brig (called Pitt) laden with rum and sugar for the English Army at Halifax, Nova Scotia. She was sent to Alexandria, Virginia. They then Sailed to an island called St. Eustatius in the West Indies where they unloaded their tobacco and stores. They loaded up with salt and returned to the United States. The ship was commanded by Captain Steerman Coulter, John Douglass, and Lt. Tanner A. Fisher. When they got as far as Chester on the Delaware River the ice prevented the ship from going any farther. (About Jan. 1780. Ed.) Thomas then Went into Chester and worked with a shoemaker for his victuals while he waited for the prize money from the ship's load of salt. When all issues were resolved he returned to his father's home in Bertie County in May of 1780, being absent one year and ten months. Questions asked Thomas Tart by James Bennett and John King, Justices of The Peace, during the application for this pension. Question 1: Where and what year were you born? Answer: I was born in Nansemond Country in the state of Virginia, the 7th of February, 1761. Question 2: Have you any record of your age, and if so, where is it? Answer: I have it on a slip of paper from my father's (Nathan Tart) large Family Bible. | 32

35: Question 3: Where were you living when called into the service? Where have you lived since the revolutionary war and where do You now live? Answer: When I was called into the service, I lived with my father in Bertie County. I was absent by land and sea for one year and ten months. After my return, I married. I moved to the state of Virginia near where I Was born. I stayed one year, then I moved back to Bertie County and from thence about thirty-three (33) years ago (1800), I moved to the place That I now live on the north side of Kill Peacock Swamp and east side of The Great Coharie, Sampson County North Carolina. Question 4: How were you called into the service, were you drafted? Did You volunteer? Were you a substitute and if a substitute, for whom? Answer: When the draft was pending for a term of nine months, our company Was to furnish a quota of six men. The company offered to give any men that volunteer two hundred dollars Continental Money. Rather than run the Risk of being drafted, I took the money and volunteered for a term of Nine months. Question 5: State the names of some of the regular offices who were with The troops where you served, such continental and militia regiments as you can recollect, and the general circumstances of your service? Answer: Colonel Hogan and Major Higgs commanded the regiment where I Served, and Captain Redding Blount and Lieutenant Rueben Wilkinson Commanded the company to which I belonged. I have no recollection of any militia or regiments, nor do I remember who the officers were that commanded At West Point. Our regiments were encamped on the commons back of the Fort, and the soldiers of the fort and the soldiers of the regiment had No communication with each other. My employment was to wait on the Captain and lieutenant. Question 6: Did you ever receive a discharge from the service and if so, By whom was it given and what has become of it? Answer: I received a discharge from the army from Colonel then General Hogan in Philadelphia After my return from waiting on Lieutenant Wilkinson. I know not what has Become of it. When I received it, I had no idea of it being of any advantage to me, and I then entered on board the Ship Clay by Letter of Marque on a cruise to the West Indies. Question 7: State the name of person who can testify as to your character for veracity and their belief of your service as a soldier of the Revolution? Answer: I know of no person who can testify at this time as To my service as a soldier of the Revolution. A few years back I could have done so. I don't know whether any of them are yet alive or if alive, I know not where they live. As to my character for veracity, I will state the names of Thomas Thornton Sr. and Westbrook Lee, who have know me for about thirty-three years, the time that I have resided in this county. | 33
