IC 1567 is probably IC 1565. At the end of his first list of "novae", Howe has four nebulae (IC 1564, IC 5278, and IC 5385 are the others) for which he did not measure good positions. There is nothing at any of the positions, but expecting that, we can cast about the fields, checking for objects that he might have seen.
In this case, the obvious choice is IC 1565. It is the brightest in a sub- group of Abell 0076. While there are other galaxies nearer Howe's crude position, this one is by far the brightest in the area and almost certainly the one he picked up.
