Hello, I would like to introduce myself I am Tracy Powell and my line is from the George Cader Powell. I have been able to confirm Benjamin Powell is his father and apparently the Elizabeth that shows up in the church records is George Cader Powell's sister. In GCP family bible list Benjamin death October 17 1836.
Sharon Powell Tate passed the bible to my family and I have tried to contact through her personal emails and message boards... She has vanished...!!!
Where I am is to connect Benjamin to the correct Powell's.
George was a "COUSIN" to his wife Caroline we know her father to be William Powell 1794 - 1814 and we know his father to be Cader Powell 1750.
The Benjamin I need to connect would be born 1760 - 51 .
In 1788 Burke Co. GA. three land plats are in the Headright and Bounty records show 200 acres, 45 acres, 32 acres.
He is in Waynesboro Burke Co. Ga 1820 census:
Name Benjn Powell Home in 1820 Waynesboro, Burke, Georgia Enumeration Date August 7, 1820 Free White Persons - Males - 10 thru 15 =1 Free White Persons - Males - 45 and over =1 Free White Persons - Females - 45 and over =1 Slaves - Males - Under 14 =1 Slaves - Females - Under 14 =1 Slaves - Females - 14 thru 25 =1 Slaves - Females - 45 and over =1 Number of Persons - Engaged in Agriculture =1 Free White Persons - Under 16 =1 Free White Persons - Over 25 =2 Total Free White Persons =3 Total Slaves =4 Total All Persons - White, Slaves, Colored, Other =7
The next census is 1830 Crawford Co. GA. I am sure he is the older free white male 70 - 79 with G.C.P. Also the free white female listed to be 50 - 59 most likely is Elizabeth sister to George. Elizabeth could be from a earlier marriage for Benjamin to ...??? And George being a late in life child his mother is ...???
I would like to know if anyone is still working on Reverend George Cader Powell ...?
