Notes

From "John Howard of Howard's Creek", by Harry Enoch:


In 1764 John Howard married Mary Preston, described as “a woman of superior understanding and highly cultivated taste.” She was born in 1740 in Augusta County, the youngest daughter of John and Elizabeth Patton Preston. John Preston was a native of Ireland and the brother-in-law of Col. James Patton. Both immigrated to Virginia, where they prospered while helping to develop the “back parts” of the colony.
