Miss Ennis Howell (still alive but very old), daughter of Benson Howell, my

grandfather's brother, came into possession of three leaves from the family Bible

(Jan. 2, 1943) of my great, great grandfather, Joseph R. Howell.  The leaves were

found among the muniments of title of V. C. Badham, who bought my grandfather's

home place (and resides there), now Badham, on the Southern Railway from

Charleston to Columbia, about four miles from St. George.  Mr. Badham also bought

and cut the timber from my great, great grandfather's land and came into possession

of the leaves from the family Bible.  The leaves show the following:
