Emaline Howell


4th Daughter of Anthony M. and Emily (Emma) Howell

Emaline Howell was the fourth child and third daughter of Anthony M. Howell and Emily (Emma)Williams Joyner. She was born in 1838 in Southampton County, Virginia.

Emaline was also a party to the above Chancery suit against her father, and Trustee John Moore, forcing the sale of a tract of land and slaves owned by her mother “Emma” prior to her marriage to Anthony M. Howell. Anthony and Emma filed Articles of Separation in 1849 “finding it impossible on account of domestic differences to live amicably together.” When her mother Emma died in February 1851 of small pox, her sisters Harriet and Mariah wanted the proceeds from the sale of the land and slaves to be used for themselves and for the care and maintenance of Milly, Henry, and Emaline.
