Misc Powell records from Missouri
The information on Charles Powell was sent to me by Dee Godkins (email address - familyfinder1@cox.net) and was passed on to her by Fleta Aday (email address - Powell@cswnet.com) one of three sisters who have been reseaching the Powell family for a very long time. The connection between these Powells and the Powells in my family are, as of right now, not proven.

Unfortunatly other than what is posted, I do not have any further information on this line.
  Daughter of Henry Powell & Matilda Hilton

    Information from John Wood, a descendant, via internet,  jaw1964@cyberusa.com Macon MO; says information source is a Great Uncle.  Matilda Hilton Powell is said to have died of milk fever. According to the obituary Lucinda was born in Scotland County, MO, and was raised in Schuyler County. "When she was 18 years old she joined the Christian Church. In 1875 she moved to this county and settled near Avilla." Four children survived. Mrs. Malinda Gailey, of Joplin, Mrs. Annine Cahoon, Harry Spry, and Lewis Spry.

John Powell & Elisha Powell Census Records
Presented by The Three Sisters

Descendants of John Powell brother to our Henry, have found The Three Sisters .   This Elisha is known to be Henry's brother.  A Mary Powell married Henry Poore in Buchanan Co. and then in 1880 a Mary Powell age 65 is living with the family of Henry and Mary Poore.  Since Elisha's widow is accounted for in the household of her son John Lee Powell, we are at a loss as to who the second Mary Powell could be.
