    Notes 
    • Children of Thomas[4] &Rebecca [Sears] HOWES.[This is VERY IMPORTANT as past genealogists have attributed this DAVID HOWES, son of Thomas and Rebecca ,as the parents of the DAVID HOWES who married Rebecca BAKER. This has proved to be erroneous! I found this David’s grave and photographed it with the gravestone information.
      1. David b.9 May 1736 Chatham, MA;
      Source-Date of birth appears on gravestone in the Ancient Chatham Burying Ground corner of George RYDER and Queen Anne Rds Chatham
      This David died 13 Jan 1755:
      Source-.Date of death and birth from his gravestone.
      Buried in the Ancient Burying Ground, Chatham, MA.
      Gravestone reads:
      Here lyes ye body
      of David HOWES
      Who died January 13th 1755 in ye
      19th year of his age
      He lies very close to his mother Rebecca Sears HOWES and his father, Thomas HOWES.
      This is the David who has MISTAKENLY been called the son of Thomas HOWES and Hope[ Sears] Doane HOWES. There were two Davids, both sons of Thomas HOWES, but had different mothers. It was not unusual in those days for a child to be named after another child who had died. as in this case
