Few facts exist concerning Susan Ann Howard, a center board schooner purchased by the Navy from the New York Prize Court on 19 May 1863. Usually referred to as Susan A. Howard, the ship was listed on 5 June 1864 as one of a group of schooners serving on the sounds of North Carolina, presumably at New Bern, as ordnance and store vessels. On 7 July, she was at New Bern serving as an ordnance boat. On 7 September, she was listed as a hulk and serving as a coal schooner.
On 30 August, the schooner was ordered to Washington; and Susan Ann Howard was sold at the Washington Navy Yard on 15 September to H. F. Hammil.
