Why don't you go up to your Aunt Betty's bedroom and dig up all her geneology reports she worked so hard on! Or are you looking for a rich relative you hope is on the deceased list?

If you don't have anything nice to say...

Why don't you say who you are? Got something to hide? Bobo, huh? You sound like a jerk to me. I loved my AUNT BETTY, and I don't appreciate any derogatory comments about her or anyone in my family. I'm only interested in relatives of mine that are human, Bobo, you don't seem to fit that profile. If you don't have the guts to use your real name...well...I don't find you to be a reliable source of information.

My cousin sent me a copy of a Pownell-Pownall Genealogy Book compiled by a Dr. Donald Wissinger in 1980.

Can you tell me more about your Frank?

In this book they all seemed to come from Hampshire Co., West Virginia and a lot of them went to Fulton Co., Indiania.

Please e-mail me at oleary

Romney is only about 20 miles from Keyser. So very likely we are related. But unfortunatly the only ones I knew were my grandparents and my aunt and uncles. Their names are Donald Pownell, Charles Pownell, and Edith Pownell Cox. Thank you
