In his diary, Increase Mathews wrote about going with his future brother-in-law Martin Howard to visit Judge Howard. I'm trying to determine if these men were related. Many of Abigail Willis's sisters married into the Howard family and one married a Packard. From Mitchell's Bridgewater history, it appears these two families were intermingled. His history records 82 descendants of John Howard who settled in Bridgewater in 1651. Many of these people do not have a WikiTree profile.
To figure out the Howard relationships, I thought I would add these profiles using Mitchell's history as my starting point, then adding sourcing with FamilyTree, but I want to be sure that what I add doesn't conflict with the existing one-name-study.
