He has many prominent family connections here and had a wide circle of friends throughout this section. He and his wife, the former Miss Alice Elliott, only recently celebrated their fiftieth anniversary.
Besides his wife, he is survived by one son, Mr. Jesse A. Howell of Cartersville and six daughters. They are Mrs. B.T. Abernathy, Mrs. Silas Hardin, Mrs. E.R. Abernathy, and Mrs. J.M.
