Hey Barbara,

I found your Powers on the 1850 census as follows

SNY Island, Pike Co. IL 1850

Benjamin B Powers 52 b. Vermont 1798
Mary A 54 b. Vermont
Benjamin 24 b. NY 1826
Alanson 22 b. NY
Mary 21 b. NY
Edward 19 b. NY
Albert 17 b. NY 1833
John 14 b. IL 1836
Sarah 10 b. IL
William 9 b. IL

They are in Pike Co Ill in 1840 as well (Head of household only listed by name others only by how many in each age group) Anna is listed as female 80/90. I live 12 miles from the library that has the cemetery books, but my daughter goes to college about half way in between so will try to get over to the library tomorrow and see if I can find her for you.

I have Power(s) in my line too, but mine went from Georgia to Texas to Oklah.
