 We were delighted to receive our first email from the HOWARD list today!

 All that we have confirmed about our  Mary "Polly" HOWARD, b ca: 1797 is
a
copy of
 her and husband, William MEADOWS' Monroe Co, VA 16 Feb 1816 marriage
bond.

 DCarey7524@aol.com was kind enough to send the following HOWARD info,
saying, "I
 don't seem to have anything on this Mary Howard in my file.  I checked
the
world
 family tree (Vol. 10 Tree #1774)... all it shows for Mary is that she was
daughter
 of Jacob Howard and Sarah Sellers.  And that Jacob was son of Michael,
but
no dates
 or anything."

 She also checked Vol. 11 Tree #1702 but found "nothing on Mary" and
"checked
FTM
 disc #162 Virginia Genealogies but didn't find anything relevant."

 Suttafran@aol.com (a very helpful Meadows List member) checked the 3
volume
 microfilm of Victor Meador's books, indicating that her family "wasn't
linked to
 anyone by Victor, so I don't have proof on them." However, Fran
indicated, "I
 tentatively have your William with Jeremiah Isaac Meadows and Elizabeth
Conley...
 I know nothing about William Salon & Sarah (Davis) Meadows' children,
although
 there may be some postings that I haven't processed.  I have little on
