John Howard, b. 1667, d. 1703.
John Howard married Mary, daughter of Richard and Eleanor Browne Warfield, in 1695. Their children were: Benjamin Howard, married Catherine Buck; Alsolute Howard; Rachel Howard, married Charles, son of Charles and Deborah Dorsey Ridgely. After the death of his first wife, he married Katherine, the widow of Henry Ridgely and the daughter of Col. Nicholas Greenbury, the one time commander-in-chief of the militia of the Province. Inasmuch as Katherine is not mentioned in her husbands will, it is presumed that she died shortly after the birth of their only child, Katherine Howard, born 1703, married Orlando Griffith.
At the parental estate on the Severn, John Howard lived a life of a wealthy Maryland Planter surrounded by his family and a large number of white servants and negro slaves. John was buried, according to his request in his will, beside his father in the family graveyard at Round Bay.
