  • Notes 
    • Second wife of Florida Governor John Milton. Caroline Howze (House) came to Perry County, Alabama as a child. Members of her Howze family also lived in Mobile. She was well educated and her family was accustom to being in the social circles of politicians and lawyers. It was there she met a 37-year-old lawyer who was a recent widower with small children living in Mobile. At the age of 18 years, she became his bride in 1844. After a steam boat accident and her husband being burned badly, the family moved to his family's plantation, the Sylvannia, in Jackson County, FL. There she lived a true Southern Belle's life-style on a huge cotton plantation with slaves. She borne 10 children to this union with her youngest being 4-years-old when the governor, after realizing the Confederacy had lost the war, committed suicide in their bedroom. He left her with the task of being a single mother who was penniless in a war-torn state on a plantation without slaves to work the fields. In 1910, she was living with one of her son's in Texas, but was laid to rest next to her husband in the family's Jackson county, FL plot at her death in 1901.
