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.

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.
