Howland Family Lines

Check out this Mayflower link - lots of history, records, passenger information, etc.
We found our link to the Howland family through our great great Grandmother, Angelina Gray Baker, whose name is recorded in the Hinkle family bible, which is almost 100 years old.

John Howland, Mayflower passenger, is a direct relation through Angelina Gray Baker. His wife, Elizabeth Tilley and her father John Tilley, were also passengers on the Mayflower. Since many of the passengers of the Mayflower did not survive that first harsh winter, many of the remaining people remarried those left in the village. This, of course, resulted in many of their children and grandchildren being related in some way. I believe our family can draw claim to as many as at least 7 or 8 of the original passengers, although we have concentrated on John Howland, as he is our most direct descendant from that most famous of ships.
