The entire page of this Census for Gibson Co TN shows that every person on it, and every parent of every person on it, as being born in TN, which I believe is untrue.
I've been told that Mary Powers died 31-May-1909, but my source also said her birthday was 27-Feb-1842, so I can't confirm the accuracy. I was also told concerning Mary Powers "I think she is buried Milan TN near church" which doesn't help me much
