  1. Am looking for other photographs by Charles W. Howland of Cincinnati.
    He was my great-grandfather.

    • I have 2 family photos, possibly a third by Howland in Cincinnati, located at 176 &178 West Fourth St. between Elm and Plum over Michie Jeweler.

    • I have a photograph of my 3rd Great-Grandmother taken by Howland Photography. I am trying to date the photo, and am assuming that it is in the early 1860s, because my 3G-grandmother was a young girl in the photo. You can view the photo in my album here: – the photo is the one of the young girl & I scanned the back of the photo as well with the stamp from Howland’s.

      • I am certain that you are correct about the photograph of your 3rd Great-Grandmother dating back to the 1860’s. The photograph is a cdv which was the popular mode of photograph before cabinet cards and was commonly seen in the 1860’s. Your photograph was certainly taken by the senior Mr. Howland, not by his son who was born in the 1860’s. Thanks for sharing your family photograph.

    • I would like to share two photos that I have that were taken at the Howland studio. How may I do that?

  2. My husband’s father was the son of Edwin A. Howland. HIs name was Herman Chambers Howland. He was born in 1896 and died in 1964. My mother-in-law, Beatrice Rose L’Heureux Howland, also born in 1896, died in 1981, told me stories about her father-law Edwin A. Howland as well as some Howland family history. I never knew my father-in-law as he and my mother-in-law divorced in the late 1930s. Subsequently he displayed questionable behavior and was diagnosed with paranoia, which the US Army said may have resulted from his exposure to gas attacks during his deployment to France in WW I. He spent over 25 years in various US Army Hospitals. Why do I relate all this? Many in the family are interested in learning more about the Howland family history, particularly about Charles W. Howland, and I’m hopeful these comments will elicit such information.
