William Ellis Howard
A story extracted from Ocracoke Island Journal: An Occasional Journal of Daily Island Life published by Phillip Howard on Friday, March 25, 2011 states that William's father was the island lighthouse keeper. William died in 1933 and Fannie died seven years later. During that interval she kept her casket in the parlor, propped up on two straight-backed chairs.
