Downtown Howe, Ok

Howe, Oklahoma was one of the largest "cities" in Oklahoma (at the turn of the century). Howe was home to several coal mines and smelters. It is located about 30 miles southwest of Fort Smith, Arkansas, in Le Flore County.

SueNell Aimes I was born in Oklahoma and though I've never been to Howe. It brings back memories of my home town. Thank you, Lois Hubbard for your picture. Sue Aimes

Sandra Merchant I know that at one time, my husband's great aunt Mollie N. Merchant Briggs lived in Howe. I'm wondering if the James W. Merchant family ever lived there in the late 1800s. Or the James M. Merchants? Some of the family is buried over in Ellis Chapel Cemetery at Wister.
