John McCarver/LULA OH McCarver/Mary Ann Powers GR Marlow (parents:Sam/Anna Bridges)/Sarah(Sally)McCarver Thomas Ellis (parents:Hurbert/Martha Needham)/Sophia Marlow Robert Patrick Meagher/LULA Eva Ellis Robert Ivan Meagher/Cleda Cranmer.
My father lived with his grandparents GR and Sally when he attended Fredericktown High School in the mid 1920's.
I have a picture of Sarah McCarver Marlow but not one of the Sarah I was questioning you about as to if she could be Mary Ann's mother.
I returned this week after spending a month in Missouri. While there I visted OH and Mary Ann (Powers) McCarver's grave at the Womack Methodist Cemetery (where Thomas and Sophia (Marlow) Ellis are also buried) and GR and Sally (McCarver) Marlow's grave at the Old Masonic Cemetery in Fredericktown.
If anyone has ideas on how to find info on Mary Ann Powers please help. I am now reading a couple of books on the Trail of Tears which began when she was about four years old. I wonder how her family escaped as I found many Europeans married to an Indian were also forced West. Just possibly her family had no property the 'white man' wanted to confiscate.
