It sounds as though you know something of the Ed Powers that interests me. Actually - I'm more interested in knowing what happened to that family between 1900 and the present than I am in going backwards.
Annie Arrison's mother, Josephine (Heath) Arrison, was the sister of my g-grandmother. I was in hopes of finding descendants in order to share old photographs and a letter that Josephine wrote that we have in our family.
I am happy to share what I do know of the POWERS in Inyo County, California; but I don't know much. Please tell me what you think I can do to help. Either contact me through my Email at "firstname.lastname@example.org" or carry on here on this Forum.
