Powers
Posted by: Alan Smith (ID *****0563) Date: September 01, 2013 at 02:13:53

Could anybody help with info on my Powers line?

1870 Census, Copiah Co. Mississippi
name age born
Powers, John 31 New York
Mary A. 28 Mississippi
James E. 9 "
George Ann 6 "

1880 Perry Co., TN
Powers, Mary A. age 36 born Mississippi
Powers, Georgia A. (daughter) age 15 born Mississippi

1890 Census burned

1900 Gibson Co., TN
Smith, H.M. (Head) Dec 1847 age 52 (This was "Hite" or "Hiram")
Georgia (Wife) Dec 1864 age 35
Eddie (Son) Dec 1893 age 6
Meary (daughter) Mar 1896 age 4
Powers, Mary (Mother-In-Law)Feb 1845 age 55
It says that Mary Powers had 3 children and 2 are still living.

The entire page of this Census for Gibson Co TN shows that every person on it, and every parent of every person on it, as being born in TN, which I believe is untrue.

I've been told that Mary Powers died 31-May-1909, but my source also said her birthday was 27-Feb-1842, so I can't confirm the accuracy. I was also told concerning Mary Powers "I think she is buried Milan TN near church" which doesn't help me much
