Looking for information on the family of Levi Powell and wife Elizabeth (maiden name also Powell).They were married in Monroe Co., MS. 10-19-1834; resided in Choctaw Co., MS. ca. 1837 – 1841.Census records place this family in LA. In 1844 but deed records show they were in Lafayette Co., MS. in 1846.They apparently went to TN. in 1848 and returned to Lafayette Co. MS where they were found on the 1850 census.Levi and Elizabeth moved to St. Francis Co., AR. by 1860 where Levi apparently died sometime between 1860 – 1869 because Elizabeth was listed as head of household on the 1870 St. Francis Co. census.Elizabeth not on census records after 1870.Mary Powell and brother Seaburn Powell both in Conway Co., AR. where Mary married cousin Isaac M. Powell (1874) and Seaburn Powell married Sarah Jane “Jenny” Ridling, nee Roberts (1878).
