Hey Barbara,

Am glad if I can help. Would give anything if someone could help me on some of my brick walls. I was at the library today and was kind of in a hurry, but with a quick check I didn't see Anna Powers listed, but I couldn't find Vol 3 and I know they had it, so may have overlooked it. Will try to get back over there soon and look more thoroughly and will look again for Vol 3. I did see on where another researcher said she died in Pittsfield, Pike Co. IL, but the Pittsfield book was there and I didn't find her. I had wondered though since she is apparently listed with Benj. Powers in 1840 (female 80-90 years old) and they are living in (or on) SNY Island if she didn't maybe die there and buried there??? Also wondered if that isn't the book that is missing because at the beginning of each of Vol of the cemetery books it tells which city the cem in that particular book are in and I didn't see any listed for SNY Island. Any way like I said will try to get over there again soon and check again.

Good Luck,
