Of course Prudence Powell, like everyone else, had a full and interesting life. If she had
kept a diary, it may have been interesting, but I think we're out of luck.
However, Prudence was more than "thought to be" the mother of Powell Hoff 1801. She
is known to be the mother of Powell Hoff by Powell, himself, and his children. Some who
passed down the information to their descendants. There's no "conflict".

There are some who might "presumed" a marriage, but without information, marriages
are assumed, not presumed, and are also deemed sacred. Especially by descendants.

"Virtually nothing known" about ancesters is often the situation.

Arnold Hovey admitted to indecision in the Amos area, because he had no information.
Any current opinion by Arnold, should come from him.

Prudence died in 1847 while the family was still in Illinois.
I would appreciate more information about subject, Prudence.
