Kim are you still blogging on ? I have been working so hard on my dear late friends genealogy. I was so surprised to find the name William Huntting Howell on your blog and photo's of Benjamin Huntting. Would love to communicate with you, my friends name was Judith Huntting Pellicone. She was so excited the information I had for her and she so sadly passed away just two weeks ago. Benjamin Huntting was her 4x great granfather.
