King William Howell (b. 1797) parents?

52 views
In many family trees I see Robert A. Howell listed as father, and either Anna King or Rachel Wilkinson listed as mother.  I can find a census document with Robert and Rachel living on an adjacent farm, but nothing else that links them together.  Is anyone else tracking this same line?

Maris' lineage is fairly well established.  She was a Quaker and I have extensive records on her life and family.  I keep hitting a dead end when trying to trace her husband, King William Howell.  I can find no documents anywhere that reveal who his parents are.
