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.
