A Little Mystery Solved

I have known since early into my research of the Howard (Harward) family that James Harward (1760-1840) was in the home of Daniel Parham in the White Oak District of Wake County, NC for the 1840 federal census.  (James died in Sep 1840). I have just never known why.  Who was this Daniel Parham?  Was he a son-in-law? Grandson-in-law?

Thanks to a Parham family researcher, I got the clue I needed this week. It turns out Daniel Parham was the son-in-law of James’ second wife Rachel Belvin Harward.  Daniel was married to Rachel’s daughter Mary from her first marriage.

It’s nice to have another piece or the puzzle in place.
