Help needed with info re: Elijah Powell 1772-1869, Chenango Co. NY
Posted by: Priscilla Fleig (ID *****3925) Date: May 29, 2003 at 22:56:17
  of 919

After many years of searching, I believe I may have finally found my ggg grandfather. I am basing it on the naming pattern mainly. A cousin that I spoke to told me that when Samuel T. Powell, Sr. and Percia Gray were married, that Samuel was "turned out". He had no info regarding Samuel Powell Sr's parentage. Based on the names given in the History of Chenango Co. NY I found 6 names in common between Elijah and Samuel's children. Most notable are the names Lucina and Amanda (in my research, I have not found these two names to be common during the time period). If anyone can help Please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it.
