This may be the same Burrell Powell that appears on the 1860 Census of Duplin County, NC. This was just north of Pender County. The census lists: Sarah Powell, 64, William Powell, 38, James Powell, 28, Burrell Powell, 6, Mathew Powell, 6 and John Powell 8. I don't know how these younger children on the census are related to Sarah, but suspect they are grandchildren. Perhaps, William or James was widowed and moved back into the household with their mother. The Sarah Powell listed was Sarah Burnham and married Wiley Powell. Sarah was a daughter of John and Ann Burnham of Duplin County, North Carolina.
