Pioneer Farmer of Upright Principles

Eugene E. Howe was born September 26, 1848 in Genessee county New York, the eldest son of Seymour E. and Phoebe Ann Howe. At the age of 8 years he came with his parents and settled on the old Howe farm in Howell township. He attended Miss Dayfoot's school in Howell village, taught in the rural schools and worked on the farm and in the pine woods. March 1st 1877 he was united in marriage to Adelphia C. Hill of Howell township by Rev. Jesse Kilpatrick. The couple made their home on the W. C. Howe farm and later purchased what is now the farm of Tracy Crandall where they lived until the family moved to Howell in 1905. Mrs. Howe passed away Feruary 28th 1907. On January 1st 1910, Mr. Howe was united in marriage with Miss Mary E. Kilpatrick of Howell who survives.

The deceased leaves to mourn their loss besides his bereaved wife, three daughters, Mrs. Charles White, and Mrs. Tracy Crandall both of Howell township and Alice Howe, a teacher in the public schools of Bay City Michigan. One brother, George F. Howe, of Howell now in Florida, and two sisters Alice C. Howe and Mrs. Ida L. Abrams both of Santiago Calif., five grandchildren, one great grandchild and several nieces and nephews.

Mr. Howe came of a generation that contributed much to the betterment of Livingston county. A stalwart disciple of honesty and integrity, too much can not be said of his influence and work. He has been a member of the Walnut street Methodist church for over a half century. He held with credit many many civil offices of trust and responsibility. He was a charter member of the Howell Farmer's Club, the organization being founded in his home. He was also a member of Howell Lodge No. 38 F. and A. M. At the time of his death he was an active member of the Howell City Park Commission. He loved trees and found his greatest pleasures in life in working with his plants and trees. He was always busy doing constructive work for himself and community, such as building houses, and developing various plats and subdivisions. Throughout his alloted span of life Mr. Howe's influence has been ever on the side of righteousness.
