Surnames: Powell, Baumgardner, Shackleford, York or Yourk, Couch
My Grandfather is Marion Powell (born February 14, 1924 in Cawood,Ky). He is married to Mary Baumgardner (who is originally from around Virginia or North Carolina). He is the son of Otis Powell and Nancy Shackleford-Powell(born in May 30,1899) who was wed in 1920.

Nancy's mother is Susan Shackleford. Nancy's brother's name is Henry who was born in May 1891. Nancy's mother was also divorced. I am not sure what Susan's maiden name is.

My Grandfather's brothers and sisters are:
John Henry who was born on Jan. 8, 1923,
Faye who was born on Nov. 14, 1926,
Vinia who was born on May 22, 1928,
Otis who was born on Jan. 19, 1932,
Lawrence who was born on July 7, 1934,
Carlo who was born on July 28, 1937 and
Ernest who was born on March 23, 1940.

I also know that my grandfather had a great uncle named Floyd Powell and a cousin named James.

I am also looking for relatives on my grandmother's side.My grandmother's name is Mary Baumgardner-Powell.She is the daughter of Maude Baumgardner (I am not sure what her maiden name was)who was married to Jesse Baumgardner. My grandma's grandmother's last name may have been York or Yourk. I am not to sure on the spelling.
My grandmother has three brothers Kimp, Chester, and Robert(Bobb).

I am not sure how the surname of Couch is tied in because I do not know how many other cousins,etc. there are.
