It has always been my belief that Howard Gordon was born and raised in the
area where he first married. Since Kentucky did not become as state until 1792.

Descendants of Howard have been found in Indiana,Iowa, Illinios, Missouri,
Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, California, Louisiana, Arkansas and Washington.

Still looking for that Kentucky, Virginia connection.
