Powell Family of Angelina County, Texas
Posted by: Gary Northen Jr (ID *****6981) Date: March 24, 2003 at 19:55:42
  of 603

Surnames: POWELL, RUSSELL, HAVARD, NEWBY (NUBY), KNIGHT, MURPHY, POULAND (POULAND), SELMAN, FERGUSON

Looking for any and all information on a POWELL line and associated families.

Alvin Glenn POWELL (my father-in-law who died before I met my wife) was born July 22, 1913 in Angelina County, TX and died August 29, 1974 in Shreveport, Caddo Parish, LA. He had one sister Jennie Lyn POWELL who married a KNIGHT and then later a MURPHY.

His father was Denman POWELL born in April 1891 in Angelina County, TX. He married Grace RUSSELL on May 20, 1911 who was born February 21, 1888 and died December 13, 1979 and is buried in Hillcrest Cemetery in Lufkin, Angelina County, TX. Grace RUSSELL's parents were James Littleton RUSSELL (1850-1915) and Mary Jane DENTON (1856-1945). They are buried in the Jonesville Cemetery, Huntington, Angelina County, TX.

I have no further information on Denman POWELL himself. He had 1 brother named Benjamin or Jim by different census records. When did he die? Where is he buried? From book research--Grace is buried in Lufkin but he is not. Why? I do not have access to the 1930 Angelina Census so I don't know if he was there in 1930.

Denman's parents were Henry C. POWELL born December 24, 1842 (in Georgia according to census records) and died October 22, 1904 and is buried in the Prairie Grove Cemetery west of Diboll, Angelina County, TX. He married Denman's mother, Virginia HAVARD on December 26, 1888 in Angelina County, TX. She was born about 1867 by census records. Her parents were Benjamin (Benajah) W. HAVARD (1840-1897) and Nancy Jane POULAN (POULAND) (1842-1910). They are buried in Tom Havard Cemetery, Angelina County, TX. It appears that Henry married Elizabth SELMAN and Isabella FERGUSON before Virginia HAVARD.

I have no other information on Henry or his ancestors. Anyone know anything? I know little else about Virginia. She is not buried beside Henry at Prairie Grove Cemetery. After Henry's death she remarried. In 1905 she married a William NEWBY (NUBY in census records). When did she die? Where is she buried?

Any information on Nancy Jane POULAN (POULAND)'s family?

A good bit of information, but I still have many questions. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
