    Anecdote
    • The Howe Family.
      Three brothers came to America from England, and settled in
      Vermont in the end of the seventeenth century or the beginning
      of the eighteenth; and it was from one of these that our
      pioneer is descended. As a young man he heard glowing accounts
      of Canada as a country where youth and vigour had rich
      possibilities; taking their fortunes in their hands, he (Rufus
      Howe) and an elder brother started for Canada about the year
      1815 and arrived in Prince Edward County, settling first on a
      hundred acre lot in Hallowell. for some reason his brother did
      not remain in Canada, but returned to the United States; but
      Rufus Howe made up his mind from the start that Prince Edward
      County had before it a great agricultural future. Seeing a
      better chance of speedy success in Hillier, he sold out to
      Harvey and Peter Hunt and removed from Hallowell to that
      township, where he bought one hundred and fifty acres. a few
      acres only had been cleared; for the most part the land was as
      nature fashioned it,! and besides being heavily timbered, it
      presented nearly every aspect of wilderness. He went through
      the routine hardship and patient toil, which the husbandman
      experiences under such circumstances, besides clearing and
      improving his own farm, he was accustomed to work for other
      early settlers, bearing names of Huff and Saylor. He availed
      himself of every opportunity of bettering his fortunes; in late
      autumn when the press of work on the farm was over, he betook
      himself to fishing on the lake, and in this way added to and
      income which was increasing yearly. He married Elizabeth Hunt.
      At the time of his death he had accumulated considerable
      wealth, which he willed to his sons and daughters leaving the
      old homestead to the youngest son, John H. all of his children
      survive him, except his son, Charles R. and two daughters, Jane
      and Sarah. Daniel lives near Concecon, and his daughter, Marion
      L. is a teacher of the local school.
      Hon. Joseph Howe (Father of Confederation), of the Maritime
      Provinces, was a distant relative of the pioneer.
