Tenn. Death & Burial Index Mary Ann Powers d. 5/31/1909 Gibson, TN age 68 (b. abt 1841 in MS)
The actual death record is indexed on Ancesty as Maryan Rowels.It says she died of "heart trouble."Unfortunately in 1909 they didn't have forms with information on parents or place of burial.
Georgia's brother was James Edward Decell. According to his death cert, he was b. 8/18/1861 MS and died 11/9/1937 at Western State Hospital in Hardemon Co, TN.At the time of his death he was a resident of Carroll Co. TN.Says both parents born MS, but names unknown by the Hospital.He was buried at Milan, TN by Fields Undertaking Co.His death Cert is under the name Ed Decell.
According to censuses, etc., he was married at least twice, and I think had several children.
