First Generation  Next

1. Jonathan POWELL 1,2 was born in Wales3 and died in Washington Co., Maryland.

General Notes: A seafaring man from Wales who moved to Washington County, MD, per obituary of son Upton Powell.
There must have been ten children, according to the obituary of son Upton Powell #2727, published 1/17/1880 in the Ogle County (IL) Press.

Is he the same person as Andrew/Jonathan Andrew Powell #20766 father of Isabel Powell? Shirley Siems Terry in an email of October, 2005, expresses the opinion that the father of Isabel Powell is our ancestor Jonathan Powell. Shirley has his name as Jonathan Andrew Powell.

Could he be the same person as John Upton Powell #20764 born 16 Aug 1740 married Mary Magdalena Unknown? (seems a bit too young for the latter.)
