      Lewis Howell was the son of William Howell Jr of the Winchester, Virginia area. His father was WagonMaster for Colonel Daniel Morgan in the Virginia Riflemen and his brother Vincent who was a Lt. in the Dragoons (Vincent killed in battle at Trenton).

      In October 1776 he enlisted at what is now Wheeling W.VA. in a company of the Virginia Continental Line commanded by Capt. Stephan Ashby then attached to a regiment of Col. James Wood. After 2 years of service he reenlisted under Captain Abraham Tipton in the State of Virginia and was attached to a company of Col. Joseph Crockett. Lewis was wounded at the battle of Germantown.

      Lewis married Leona Sisk on December 15, 1814 in Hopkins County, Kentucky.

      On January 23, 1822 Lewis Howell declared in the court of Samuel Marshall, JP that he was now a resident of Shawneetown, Gallatin County, Ill and declared he was originally placed on the pension roll of the State of Kentucky and now wished to be transferred to the Illinois pension roll.

      On March 20, 1829 Lewis Howell appeared before Judge William Greenup in Kaskaskia, Randolph County, Illinois to declare he had lost his pension certificate. He stated the lost certificate was issued by the Secretary of War some time between September 20 and October 1, 1827 for the State of Illinois. He then was issued a new certificate. Lewis died in Gallatin County, Illinois on April 27, 1833.

      Leona married a David Barnett after the death of Lewis. Barnett died 15 December 1849 in Gallatin County, Ill.

      On January 25, 1861 Leona appeared before associate judge William M. Bruce of Gallatin County. She was 84 years old and was a resident of Saline County (near the Gallatin County line). She applied for a pension benefit as provided by a Feb 3, 1853 Act of Congress granting pensions to widows. She was eligible for $96 per year.
