Memories Of Charles F. Howe

Arbuckle Footnotes

I was at the historical society meeting long ago and had a relative of Charles Howe ask me to run his W.P.A. interview again, so, here it is. This interview was recorded on May 18, 1937.

My father was Harvey M. Howe, born February 17, 1837 in Illinois. He was a schoolteacher.

My mother was Harriet Richardson Howe, born December 25, 1841 in Woostershire, England. There were five children in our family. I was born August 1, 1877 in Missouri.

Father decided to make the ‘Run’ in 1889. He was tired of teaching and so he came to Oklahoma and staked a claim, April 22, 1889, near Orlando, north of Guthrie. In November, he moved us here on an immigrant train.
