I am a cousin...Jo An Howard Gaines, living in Honolulu. My mother Clara Howard married to Arch Howard always spoke of Sambo. Was his grandfather Jehu? I'm so sad that I never knew Sambo. Perhaps I can connect with someone in the family. My address is Jo An H. Gaines,3594 Akaka Place, Honolulu, Hi. 96822 808-988-3020. I will contribute in his name to Roxie McClendon's Fund.
