Rev. Robert Shaw Howland was born on 11 Sep 1820 in New York City. He died on 01 Feb 1887 in Morristown, Middlesex, New Jersey, USA. He is the son of Gardiner Greene Howland and Louisa Edgar. I am very proud to share this photo of Rev. Robert Shaw Howland with the genealogical community. Rev. Robert Shaw Howland with the help of veterans after the end of the Civil War started the Episcopal Church of Heavenly Rest in New York City. I do not know when the photo was taken, but would be interested if anyone else has information about the photo. Rev. Robert Shaw Howland married Mary Elizabeth Watt Woolsey on 16 Jan 1853. They had the following children: Mary Woolsey Howland, Eliza Newton Howland, Abbie Roberts Howland, Una Felicia Howland, and Georgianna Howland. I am a descendent of Rev. Robert Shaw Howland’s first daughter Mary Elizabeth Watt Woolsey and her husband James Russell Soley. Enjoy the photo!
