Looking for William Jennings Howell b. abt. 1850 (-+ 10yrs). He had a Calvin Howell. Calvin had a son Benjamin Franklin Howell  His son Jasper Marion Howell b. abt1890 Rockwall, Tx. d. 1958 Seminole, Ok. Jasper married Mollie Smith b. 1907 Oklahoma Indian Territory d. 1979 Wewoka, Ok. There are more than one William Jennings Howell and that has created a lot of confusion  William J. could actually be William Lassiter Howell. One of the William J. Howell's is of Native American heritage but My family DNA indicates I am not of Native American heritage. William could be from Howard or Howell counties in  Missouri or from Arkansas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking up information based on what you posted I found Jasper Marion Howell born 9 Oct 1895/96 Rockwall Tx son of Benjamin. In the 1900 US census Benjamin is listed as 50 years old and being born in Missouri making his birth around 1850. Calvin father of Benjamin was born around 1824 in Tenn, William Jennings was born around 1790 in North Carolina, died 11 Dec 1875 in Iron City Missouri
