Howard was born in Massachusetts about 1779. He had enlisted in the army in 180l, and entered on the rolls of the expedition at Camp Dubois, January 1, 1804. Although Clark noted that “Howard never drinks water,” there is no record of his abusing the enlisted mens’ liquor allotment privileges. Howard was, however, court marshaled for scaling the Fort Mandan stockade wall when returning after hours from a visit to the Mandan Indian village. He is another among the missing in Clark’s 1825-1828 “List of Men on Lewis and Clark's Trip.”
