County, daughter of Thomas Woods; she was half-sister to John M. and Geo. 
W. Allen (q.v.), having the same mother. The tombstone of the oldest 
daughter, Sarah Jane, says she was born Oct. 3, 1858, but the 1860 census 
of Pierce county shows Henry N. and Emily had no children and had been 
married within the year; and the 1870 census of Charlton county shows Sarah 
Jane was 7 years old. The nine children of Henry N. and Emily Howard were:

Henry Howard grew up in Appling County, but in the creation of Pierce 
County in 1858 partly out of Appling he and others of his family were cut 
into the new county. He enlisted Sept. 29, 1861, in Co. "N", 26th Georgia 
Infantry Regiment, the first company to be raised in Pierce County for the 
Confederate Army. The intitial enlistment in the 26th Regiment was for only 
six months. The men were mustered out March 31,1862. Shortly after, the 4th 
Georgia Cavalry was raised by volunteer enlistment, and Mr. Howard enlisted 
May 1, 1862, in Co. "A", made up mostly of those who had served the 6-month 
enlistment in the 26th Georgia. Mr. Howard was chosen corporal. The last 
roll on file of this company was dated June 30, 1864, and shows that he had 
deserted June 19, 1864. His command at the time was serving in protecting 
the South Carolina coast around Beaufort.
Mr. Howard after the war moved to Charlton County and lived there until his 
death Aug. 29, 1899. His farm where he lived was in the northeast part of 
the county, near the Allen Cemetery. His wife died about 1887, and was 
buried on their homeplace, the only grave there. His grave is marked; hers 
is not.
