He had three sons: Seth (Dea.), William and Samuel.
Seth born in England, William removed to
Boston and was the progenitor of the family
of Chief Justice Joseph Story. Samuel was
a mariner progenitor of a large part of
the Storys now in EssexCo. Mass. Had five

Clara m. Josiah Powers had 9 children. No
one knew anything about them. Have
record of all of them now.

Mrs. N. A. Klemme
granddaughter res. Ridgeway, Winneshiek Co. Iowa
quite interested in this genealogy of great
assistance. (Would like to hear from again) Her
father Geo. Balleo m. Mary Angeline daughter
Clare & Josiah Powers. Her Brother Nahum Powers
lives at Paradise Calif. Everett Powers Atty
Los Angeles, Calif.

NOTES by Byron Edwards (2007) follow:

RootWeb db fittingsbf2: Nellie Rosemon Klemme was b. 10 Mar 1871 in Winneschiel [sic. should be Winneshiek] Co., Iowa. Thus Caleb must have prepared the genealogy well after that date. Guess 1900.

Same database: Everett E. Powers is listed as 'atty at law' in the 1884-5 directory for Butte Co., in Paradise. Everett E. Powers is also listed as a farmer, age 21 from Iowa, in Paradise in the Great Register for California in 1880. In the [Soundex index for the] 1900 census in Los Angeles, Los Angeles co., California, Edward E. Powers was born Dec. 1861 in Iowa, [wife?] E. Lydia was born July 1871 in California and niece Beryl Brown was born Feb 1893 in California

Same database: Children of Josiah and Clare are
       Mary Angeline Powers Klemmes
       John Emery Powers whose son is Edward Everett Powers
       Nahum Nevens Powers
       Cyrus Powers
       Wilbur F. Powers
       Louise E. Powers
       Alexander William Powers
       Erimina Annette Powers

I can find no real support for connecting the family with Justice Joesph Powers though several internet databases do make the connection though William Story. This William did not appear to have “removed to Boston” since his children were born in Ipswich.

Companion letter from Cyrus to son Caleb establishes Caleb's father as Cyrus.
Cabel's 4th great grand father was Andrew Story who immigrated to Massachusetts with his son William in 1637.

I have information regards Caleb and his descendants.

Mary Stockbridge's 3rd great grand father was John Stockbridge who immigrated to Massachusetts in 1635 and was one on the original residents of Scituate, Massachusetts.
