Lt. Howard At The Detroit Arsenal

Found in the Canadian records, cataloged in the British Military and Naval Records (RG 8, C Series):

C.674 = Microfilm C-3171; Page 190 [on index card]

Lt. [Joshua] Howard is the very last entry on the Distribution of the Army of the United States, showing the strength of Posts and Garrisons (P. 190)
