My paternal grandfather was Henry P. Howe, born in Augusta, WI in 1898. He moved to St. Paul, MN in the 1920s after a fire destroyed his business.
I never met him as he passed prior to my birth, but I did see that he had a sister named Nellie, who became Nellie Schmitz and lived in IN. Is this the same Nellie Howe from Augusta, WI you are looking for?
If so, do you have any information about my grandfather, especially concerning the fire that burned his livery stable and the death of his father, Daniel David Howe?
My parents and my cousin put together a family tree book in the 1980s about the Howes. Perhaps I might be able to look in there for information regarding Nellie for you.
