In Reply to: Powell reunion in IOW Virginia by william POWELL of 1389

William,
Just lately DNA has shown that my Powells go back to the Isle of Wight Powells. I note that you were a speaker at the 2007 reunion. We have known for a long time that our line went back to James Powell b.1759 and married to Rebecca Bynum and that he was born in Virginia. We have some material that was written by his son George Powell who was active in Blount Co. Ala.that said that James's father was John Powell jr. married to Alice Brewer (Chatham Co. NC) and that his grandfather was John Powell Sr. married to Mary Cromwell. However, from Lucas book there are no John Powells that are shown with those wives. I was wondering if you might have some incite about this?
Helen Smith
