Some believe that the wife of John Howland was Elizabeth Hicks, daughter of Robert Hicks. But the Elizabeth "Hicks" who married John Dickenson (July 1651) was widow of Robert Hicks' son, Ephraim Hicks, daughter of John Howland.
Her first husband died "a violent death" a few months after their marriage.
After her husband's death, she deeded Oyster Bay land to John Underhill in 1684 and to her son Samuel in November 10 1688.
marriage records of Elizabeth Howland to Robert Hicks AND John Dickenson confirm her birth year and marriage to both men.

Could someone please merge Howland 1070 to this profile? I would do it, but I'm not great at post-merge clean up and this page is too pretty :) I went looking for this person (actually father), and when I found 1070 first, I thought perhaps there was a Mayflower passenger yet undocumented and nearly set to work documenting!
Howland-1206 and Howland-1148 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents so same person. Not sure where the death date difference comes from as there is no source data listed on 2d one. Please merge.
