Please check out the newest entry in the Mystery/Fun Photos section, this time one of the "mysteries." Author William Henry Manning claims that he and his father, William Wallace Manning, are Howland descendants but the 1990 John Howland of the Mayflower, volume 2, says the ancestor they claim is only the reputed daughter of a Gorham and the only person that so claims is William Henry Manning. If you have an old family bible, a baptismal record, a deed of sale, or a will/probate record showing Amy Manning to have been Amy Gorham before her marriage to Samuel Manning and can specify her parents, you can make the 2 Williams very happy because I can move them out of the mystery section and into the Howland-Tilley section.
The author is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
