Dr. Thomas Pitchlyn Howell was born at Eagletown, Choctaw Nation, August 28, 1849, the
son of Calvin and Rhoda Pitchlyn Howell.  He graduated from Cumberland University and
finished his medical education at the University of Maryland.

Dr. Howell settled west of Davis where he was a successful farmer and stockman.
He practiced medicine until 1893 and was at one time or another, president of the First
National Bank at Wynnewood, vice president of the First National Bank of Davis, and
president of the Wynnewood Cotton Oil Company.

He was a Mason, a Shriner, a member of the Knights of Pythias and, at the time of his
death in 1943, president of the Old Settler's Association of Garvin County.  Dr. Howell
was also active in the Methodist Church.

Dr. Howell first married Lizzie Grant, daughter of Tom Grant of Fort Arbuckle.  Their
children were Deila, Daisey and Hickman.

After the death of his first wife he married Hennrietta Wright, of Paris, Texas, and to them
were born Tom P., Vivian and Gladys.

Dr. Howell passed away July 16, 1943 and is buried at the Howell Cemetery, located just
beside the interstate between Davis and Hennepin.  It is a very small family cemetery.

In the Howell cemetery just outside of Davis, Dr. Thomas P. Howell is buried.  In his biography
it shows three children with his second wife.  There were three but they were all girls, Vivian, Gladys and Laura.
There was no son from this marriage.

Laura was married to Tom Youngblood and she had one son, Thomas Howell Youngblood.
He Married Alvera Jennings from Wynnewood. They has one son Thomas Howell Youngblood, Jr.
Laura's son died a number of years ago, he is buried in the National Cemetery in Washington, DC.
Laura passed away in, I believe, the 70's.

Her ash's were scattered in the front garden of the old home that Dr. Howell built.
Her Grandson T.H. Youngblood, Jr, died in the early 90's and his ashs's were scattered in the
bay of San Francisco, CA.

Alvera Jennings Youngblood Johnson (Married to Paul Johnson, of Davis) is my First Cousin once removed.
T.H. Youngblood, Jr and his Grandmother, Laura, were very dear to me. This is how I happen to know this history.

The last paragraph of Dr. Howell's Biography list his death as 1903 it should be 1943


Corrections provided by Bill Howell

This is a biography of my great-grandfather, Dr Tom P Howell..
In the corrections by Ben Crump he states there were no sons by his second marriage.
That is incorrect. My grandfather, Tom P Howell, Jr was born from that marriage.
He was a rancher and lived his entire life in the Davis area.
