I am looking for William Austin Powell, my g-grandfather. I found him at age 16, in a 1860 Census in Pigeon Roost, ARK. (Prairie Co.) living in the home of a Levi Byram (Levi's wife's name is listed as Mary also from TN). William Austin Powell is also listed in that household, also of TN. I know there was a Powell Valley in Knox Co., TN. Also, a Levi Byram, in Knox Co., TN.
An 1850 Census has the same Levi Byram from Alabama has Levi living in Southern Division, DeSoto, Mississippi.
An 1860 Census has the same Levi Byram from Tennessee has living now in Pigeon Roost, Ark.
I'm sure this is the same Levi Byram....his wife's name is Mary and all children have the same name and ages coincide.
All Census' for Powell have him from TN (for the most part)
Does anyone have anymore information on the Knox Co. TN..Levi Byram? Could W. A. Powell been a nephew of his wife? Or himself? Relative or neighbor? Orphan?
I want to find the parents or any information on W.A. Powell. Why would he be living in the household of Levi Byram? What was the connection of Powell and this Levi Byram?
Could someone tell me mre about this Levi Byram of Knox County, TN. married to Mary?
Can anybody help?Please?I'm about ready to throw the towel in at this one. Somebody has to have heard of him somewhere...maybe?
