157. Anna Ragland STAMPS was born on 22 August 1842 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.1,7 She died on 11 June 1901 at the age of 58 in Tarboro, Edgecombe County, North Carolina.1,7

Anna Ragland STAMPS and Judge George HOWARD were married on 3 December 1861 in Caswell County, North Carolina.1,7 Judge George HOWARD1,7,77, son of George HOWARD and Alice Clark THURSTON, was born on 22 September 1829 in Tarboro, Edgecombe County, North Carolina.1,7 He died on 24 February 1905 at the age of 75 in Tarboro, Edgecombe County, North Carolina.1,7 The information from the Stamps database that Alex Howard and Susan Slade, daughter of Thomas Slade, Jr.were parents of George Howard seems to be completely erroneous.
Howard family research suggests that Judge George Howard's parents were George (1798-1863) and Alice Thurston Clark (1807-1871). The Howard family was present in early Anne Arundel Co MD and some records place the Slade family there as well. Quite possibly there is some relation between George and Alex Howard.
George Howard was granted license to practice law in 1860; in 1854 he helped form the county of Wilson, NC. In 1859 he was elected to the Supreme Court of NC, an office he held for life. Some of his accomplishments include being Director of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, Director of University of North Carolina, President of Pamlico Banking and Insurance Co.
