HOWLAND, WRIGHT posted by Denise (Dierberger) Baker on Sunday, November 23, 1997

I am searching for information about two Howland brothers. Andy Howland was a South West Union bachelor. His picture is among the collections of photographs in the Solomon Butcher's Pioneer Photos. Andy disappeared (year unknown) and was never seen or heard from again. Rumors heard at that time said he was murdered. It was also rumored that he left suddenly and moved to California. I have a photograph of him with a young lady (I was told her name was Rufes Predmore). The picture appears to be taken in a studio. If anyone can tell me anymore about Andy, I'd appreciate your help. Andy had a brother Charles Howland born September 23, 1856 in New Hampshire. Charles was my Great Great Grandfather. He came to the Custer County Area and married Rebecca Evangeline WRIGHT born August 12, 1862. They had eight children; Lottie, Ernie, Rosie, Elsie, Bertha, Dotti, Sam and Edgar. Dotti was my Great Grandmother. Anyone that can offer any information about these individuals, your help would be greatly appreciated.
