Arthur Howland: Birth: BEF. 1647.
Title: The Truth Abouth the Pilgrims
Title: Arthur Howland of Plymouth, Mass. 1640, his wife Margaret (__) Walker, & their Children, by Wakefield & Sherman, National Genealogical Quaterly V71
Note: Most important, in the first edition of Plymouth Colony Marriages to 1650, it is noticed that there is a conflict between the statement there that John Walker and Lydia Reed "married before 1643," and the record of their marriage in Marshfield in 1654. the process of reconciling these contradictory statements provided evidence that Arthur Howland's wife Margaret was a widow Walker before she married him, not a widow Reed, as has been stated many times for more than a century, perhaps most recently in 1975 by Carl Moyer 3rd. Regrettably, Walter Goodwin Davis' 1945 correction of this point has gone relatively unnoticed. - (Robert Wakefield and Robert Sherman)
