Godman-Powell family in Vanderburgh Co, IN
Posted by: William Muller (ID *****3372) Date: December 05, 2005 at 17:59:01

Not a query for a change:
UPDATE: Elizabeth Powell is the granddaughter of Alexander Negley. She married Alexander Godman/Goodman/Gottman in 1839 (or was it actually 1849)? The two published reports on the family (as well as several electronic sites) have the children born in the 1840s. But the 1850, 60, 70 and 80 censuses clearly indicate that they were born in the 1850s. I have yet to follow up on the children but felt that this should be brought to everyones attention ASAP.
