Even though Aaron E. Johnston passed away in 1913 the Howell Society continued on into at least the mid 1930s. During this time several reunions were held. A photo of one is on display at the MacKenzie House, 427 Farmingdale Lakewood Rd Howell, N.J. (See Above) At this time the MacKenzie House is closed for renovations and the Covid restrictions. Hopefully it will be opened again soon. Further research on the Howell Society may be done at Newspapers.com, a paid service.
