Descendants of William Bethel Powers & Nancy Jane Martin

Am trying to find my first cousins and their descendants - descendants of my grandmother Louella Powers' siblings. Want to share family history and to let everyone know of an upcoming Powers Clan worldwide reunion in Ireland in 2013.

Would really like to find some males in my line still carrying the surname. They would be descendants of the two brothers who had sons:

1) John H Powers who was married to Agnes O'Trimble and had a son named: 1a) Leroy Powers who would be in his late 60's or 70's now, or any of his descendants.


2) Pryor Bethel Powers who married Carolyn Elizabeth Haid and they had three sons:

2a) Bethel Haid Powers who married Margaret Koebrick and they had a son named James Bethel Powers who would be in his 60's or 70's now, or any of his descendants.

2b) A second son named William Henry Powers who married Betty Williams and they had a son named John Pryor Powers who who would be in his 60's or 70's now, or any of his descendants.

3c) And a third son named Warren Paul Powers who married Jo Anne and they had two sons: Patrick David Powers and Tommy Joe Powers, both are probably in their late 50's to late 60's now, or any of their descendants.

I have our family traced back to a Thomas Powers who came over from Ireland in 1762 and his descendants on down once here to my branch that settled in northwest Missouri and Mt Pleasant Kansas in the 1840's. I have done the FamilyFinder DNA testing and if one of our male line that still carries the surname does the Y-DNA testing we would have a chance to match it up at this clan reunion to try to trace our lines there in Ireland.
