I just recently learned that I have a 3rd cousin, once removed, named Queen Victoria. She was the great-great-great-great-granddaughter of William Howard, Sr., one time owner of Ocracoke Island. I also have an Ocracoke relative named Napoleon Howard...and another one named Lafayette Howard. I also have a few kinfolk with relatively uncommon biblical names, including Abner, Amon, Enoch, Dorcas, and Solomon. Yesterday a visitor to the island told me about her relative, King Solomon Howard. I couldn't fit him in the family line, but I think there is a good chance he's kin somehow!
One day I plan to write a monthly Ocracoke Newsletter about unusual Ocracoke Island names. In the meanwhile, take a look at our latest Ocracoke Newsletter, Molly Lovejoy's 2012 Ocracoke School Valedictory Address. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news062112.htm.
