a. Note:   !DEATH: Cornelius Howard died Jun 14 1777 buried in Churchyard of St. Thomas' Church. (No stone found at the cemetery.)
  In the American History Vol. III NO. 4 April 1879 the story of the Howards of Maryland states that Cornelius is buried on the family property called the Forest and on his tombstone is the coat of arms which are drawn in the article. The St. Thomas church records say Cornelius was buried in the churchyard but no stone was listed on the 1881 map nor found upon my visit in 2002. The stone is on the family plantation at Greystone Apartments next to the former Howard birthplace.
  !TOMBSTONE: Sacred to the Memory of Mr. Cornelius Howard who departed this life on the 4th of June 1777 age 70. He was a Tobacco Planter in the County of Baltimore lived much esteemed died regreted by all. Howard Coat of Arms with motto Desir n'a Repose (Do not wish for rest).
  The original English Howard, Duke of Norfolk coat of arms was Gules a bend between six cross-crosslets fitchee argent. The tombstone of Cornelius Howard has these Howard arms with the difference of the two moons, which means they are descended from the same family as the Howard, Duke of Norfolk which by tradition the family claimed descent. In 1695, John Howard Sr. son of Matthew Howard stamped on this arms on his will by a wax seal. Coat of Arms: Gules on a bend argent between six cross-crosslets fitchee argent two crescent moons or. Crest: - On a chapeau gules, turned up ermine, a lion statant gardant, with tail extended, or. Motto: - Desir n'a repos. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program. The creator of each GEDCOM is solely responsible for its content.
