Hey there,
Could somebody please help me find records for Joseph "The Fighting Quaker" Powell, born 1 Jan 1760 in Huntington Township in this county? Specifically, I am looking to verify who his parents are.

Hi, Katrina-

Adams County didn't exist until 1800 when it was carved out of York County. I did check both York and Adams County records and don't find any evidence of a William POWELL born on that date or anywhere close to it.

There is also a Huntington Township in Luzerne County, PA, although it would not be a county where I'd expect to find the likely Welsh Quaker Joseph POWELL to have been born. There were Quaker POWELLS in Chester County, PA, at an early date and there are a few Josephs but none born on the date you listed.

Thanks for looking, Joan. I do have his parents as being John Powell, born 7 Feb 1722 in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and Nancy Ann Todd. Are these the right parents?

There are a William and Rachel listed in the records of Sadsbury Monthly Meeting. I don't find your John and Nancy Ann listed.
