| Howland Simpson
| Character Information
Howland Simpson married Gabby Crouse and they had five children: "Old Tut" Simpson, Gaston Simpson, Hugo Simpson I, Dulcine Simpson and Lou Simpson. His brothers are Zeke and Floyd Simpson and his sister is Pippa Simpson.
Howland was the son of Garwood Simpson and Clowta Stillman.
Grampa said once that in 1835, Howland had a double caramel macchiato in a cafe near Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The Liberty Bell rang to honor the death of Chief Justice John Marshall. Because of the temperature of the drink, it coupled with the sonic frequency of the peal of the bell as it cracked, the mug fractured in a way nearly identical tho that of the famous symbol of liberty.
Behind the Laughter
According to one notable Simpsons family tree, Howland is the great grandfather of Abraham Simpson II, however, Abraham himself has stated that his great grandfather of the name "Simpson" was (like himself) called Abraham Simpson. If this is true, then the only place that these two contradicting family trees could possibly reconnect is at some place before Orville Simpson, who is confirmed by both sources to be Abraham's father, or it is possible that Orville was adopted.
