Mr. Howe was born on a farm near Owosso, and his early life was spent there and in Corunna.. On June 28, 1888, he married Miss Della Bogue, of this city, who survives him. After spending several years in Mt. Pleasant, Mr. and Mrs. Howe moved to Ypsilanti where Mr. Howe immediately entered the coal business. He retired a few years ago. He was a member of First Baptist church here, and for 14 years was treasurer of that church.
