Powell b. 1794[who was a doctor] m. Isabella Unknown b. 1788, both born
GA, who knows where? They were in Rutherford County, TN in 1830 where my
great gfather[Alexander Wise Youngblood Powell] was born in Feb 1830. They
already had daughter Elva b. ca 1815, William E. b. 1818. [William E was
Methodist Preacher in 1870 in Summerville, Chattooga County, GA.] About
1836 this family including son William already on his own, moved to Walker
County, GA, then by 1845 Dr. Thomas and William were buying land in GA.
His other children included James R, b. 1817; Martha, b. 1826; Alexander,
b. 1830; Louisa b. 1832. All children born TN. I need information of where
Thomas and Isabella were born. Later, Oliver Conrad Powell, son of Alexander,
married Annie C. Unknown January 17, 1895. They had one daughter Lennie
Irene Powell. Oliver Conrad divorced Annie C. August 3, 1903 at Griffin,
Spaulding County, GA. They had lived in Forsyth County, GA. My main question

county they went to in 1836 had been Cherokee land, without white people
until 1832. Thanks for any suggestions and help.

DorothySearching for info
on my Powell line. My 5th great grandparents were John Powell, Sr. who
married Mary Cromwell; 4th great grandparents John Powell whose spouse
was Alice Brewer, 3rd great grandparents were James Powell and Rebecca
Bynum, then Green "Berry" Powell who married Martha "Patsey" Tidmore, great
grandparents were Henry Carl Powell and Lela Harrison (second wife). This
is about all I know on this line. There is a note on this research that
Mary Cromwell was a direct descendant of the famed Oliver Cromwell, but
no proof of this. I would be so happy to hear from someone who might have
done research on anyone in my Powell line. This has been a difficult family
to trace since there are many James and John Powells.
to trace a member of my family tree NELLIE POWELL,of CHELTENHAM ,ENGLAND,she
lived in either SWINDON ROAD or QUEEN`S RETREAT.She had a son in 1907,LIONEL
PERCY POWELL,[my late grandfather].This is where it becomes a dead end,and
as I`m new to reseaching family tree`s, I need some advice as to where
I go to from here.Could you point me in the right direction,here`s hoping
for good news,and thanks for your time.

J. Paul Sides I'm still
trying to locate any information on my g-grandfather David Frank Powell.
Died June 1902 in Lindale, Texas. I went to the library today in Smith
County to look for obits. They had no newspapers on film for that year.
I'm new to genealogy and have had some success with other branches
of my family tree. This one is frustrating. My father is an only child.
His mother was an only child. Her dad, David Frank, died 9 months after
she was born. It appears that her parents were only married for a couple
of years before his death. So...hardly anything is known about this side
of my family.
Kristina This is very
little to go on, but it's all I have. I am looking to find info on my Great
great grandmother's line. Her name was Sara Powell. She was called "Granny
Grimes", for some reason? I don't know birthdates or places or death info.
I do know that she married someone with the last name Graham. They had
a daughter Winafred Graham. b. 11Nov1856. pb. Anderson County, 20 miles
out of Oak Ridge TN. She died 28Nov1926. She married Richard Petree. b.

Alex I am from Malta.
I would like to know something about our Powell family in England. My grandfather,
Percy Powell, was born on 14 Sept. 1895 in Burn St.Winnow RB.(according
to the birth certificate) There he lived in the county of Cornwall, Sub-district
Lanlivery. Registration district: Bodmin. Though not registered, I think
that Torquay was a place he lived in as well. His parents were James (occupation:
farmers hand) and Hannah maiden Cooms. Percy was in the Royal Navy which
eventually took him to Malta where he married Helen Gordon in Nov. 1917.
They settled in Malta. He died in 1954. Presumably he had about 13 siblings,
three of them may be Walter, Mabel, Sarah. Any information would help me
and my family to know our far away family better.
