Reference Sources for the Family History of

Author's Note: This genealogy - because it was created over many years - does not cite all sources in the footnotes, but instead may oftentimes include both the full source text and citation in the Notes attached to a person's entry. There may also be uncited sources for some early entries into this database, for which the author apologizes. In general, uncited Kielley family relations are most probably from Henry J Conroy's large well documented file for this family, Posey family sources are likely from James Wade Emison's 'Emison Families' 1962 book, or from posts to the Posey forum (especially those of Fredric Saunders and Joy McDaniel). Charles Co., MD entries may be from Michael Marshall's well documented file tree. For medieval time period entries, the author relied much on Leo van de Pas' massive well documented genealogics website, Jim Weber's large tree at with its copious notes, or the many great posts to soc.genealogy.medieval newsgroup SGM. Apologies for incompletely citing all the valuable contributions of these and other individuals - and unbounded thanks to all genealogist's who have provided help. Apologies to them, and others, for not being given full recognition herein for their scholarship and help.
About These Sources : While the following list is believed to be the most relevant/reliable, new sources, corrections and additions are welcomed. These should be directed to the author, Terry J. Booth, at email address

1.   Bonner, Becky; Varner, Cheryl and others,  Various,  (An interesting but undocumented (and probably wrong) summary of genealogical traditions for these families. A variety of sources, most lacking key source citations, that in combination suggest a link between the early Fleming and Tarleton families of New Kent Co., VA, and the earlier Fleming and Tarleton landed gentry of Scotland. See Bonner's Flemming family at - the chronology works better than shown elsewhere, and she is one of the few to note there were 2 Ursula Flemings of different generations, the first who m. George Keeling and a later generation who m. Tarleton Woodson. Cheryl Varners's version is on her tree, db=:2753682.)

Many records were transcribed by Richard Smith to his tree (db=waslug), the only available source until the book becomes more widely available. In a 11 May 2005 email he notes "You are correct in that Randall's book had a very limited distribution. This branch of the Howard and related families has a strong presence here in the northwest since the big family move in 1864, with a lot of genealogy interest. I am sorry to say that Randall passed away in 2003. The book, "The House of Howard" was compiled, printed and assembled by Randall from his own and family sources and was contributed to by many family members. The distribution was basically within the family, although before he died I referred a number of people to him who may or may not have been able to get copies. If you have some specific information I would be happy to do lookups for you. The Anna Howard you refer to is probably from another line. As near as I can tell our Howards came into the country in the south NC, VA and over the years spread west to TN with some ending up in IL. A large contingent approx. 76 family members made up the Howard wagon train and moved west in 1864 because of local conflicts during the war. They were anti slavery so unwelcome in the south, but were vocally pro-southern which put them in conflict with their neighbors in IL. Richard C. Smith
