William Thomas Howe married Mary Ann Donald on 24 June 1862, and they resided at Penniac in the parish of Saint Mary's, York County, New Brunswick for the rest of their lives. William and Mary Ann Howe had four children: Sarah Esther (1862-1902), Minnie (b. 1864), William Alexander (1869-1873), and James Watson (1867-1965). Sarah Howe and Minnie Howe married into the Boyd and Sansom families respectively.
This Bible was passed down through the family over several generations with the last owner being E. W. Sansom, the son of Minnie Howe Sansom.
