George immigrated with his parents to Jennings County, Indiana, about 1836 from Sheshequin, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. His parents helped establish the Flat Rock Baptist Church, and their home was a station on the Underground Railway, passing slaves through Indiana to Canada. Perhaps George helped too, but he was married and had children of his own by then.

He resided in Jackson Township, Ripley County, Indiana, and Columbia Township, Jennings County, Indiana.

George and his wife Susannah were married before her parents and siblings left Indiana, and they lived on her parents’ place. Their youngest son was just a baby when they left Indiana by train and settled in Eagle Creek, Clackamas County, Oregon, not far from where Susannah’s family had settled.

When Susannah died in 1879, she left small children. George then married a widow with small children of her own and had two sons by his second wife.

Nelson Howlett immigrated to Indiana about 1820 with his father and stepmother. Nelson’s father, William, was a Revolutionary War soldier and sailor.

He had extensive holdings in Jennings County, Indiana, which he sold to join a wagon train
traveling to Oregon in the spring of 1851. Somewhere in eastern Oregon, he died of a “bite of a buffalo gnat” and was buried along the Oregon Trail at the Birch Creek Crossing, now in Malheur County, Oregon, not far from Huntington. His widow and children became pioneers in Oregon, where Lydia Howlett married a man from the same wagon train who had also been widowed on the Oregon Trail.
