Many Prominent Family Connections Here — Funeral
After an illness of many months duration, Mr. Richard
L. Howell, 70, beloved resident of Bartow County for many years, passed
away at his home here late Friday evening. He had been in failing
health for some time and the end was not unexpected.
Funeral services were conducted at Macedonia Sunday morning at 11
o’clock, Rev. W.E. Hembree officiating in the presence of a
large following of sorrowing relatives and friends. Interment was
in the family lot at Macedonia cemetery. Cummings-Long-Owen were in
charge of funeral arrangements.
Born in Bartow County in 1887, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Steve
Howell, Mr. Howell spent much of his life-time here, although he made
his home in Cherokee County for a number of years. He has many prominent
family connections here and had a wide circle of friends throughout
this section. He and his wife, the former Miss Alice Elliott, only
recently celebrated their fiftieth anniversary.
Besides his wife, he is survived by one son, Mr. Jesse A. Howell of
Cartersville and six daughters. They are Mrs. B.T. Abernathy, Mrs.
Silas Hardin, Mrs. E.R. Abernathy, and Mrs. J.M. Tidwell of Cartersville;
Mrs. W.A. Abernathy of Woodstock and Mrs. J.T. Abernathy of Acworth.
Three brothers and one sister also survive. They are Messrs R.W.,
W.M., and J.D. Howell of Cartersville, and Mrs. Nancy Banks of California.
