Lenoir Topic Newspaper---Years and years ago, in the olden day, before the Revolution, there lived at Poweltown, near Lenoir, a moose old bachelor named Ambrose Powell, who had so little gallantry and regard for the gentle sex that he refused to allow a woman to set foot on his premises. A little nephew, a namesake, lived with the old man at his solitary and cheerless abode. Tiring of so uncongenial a life, the little Ambrose started out to seek his fortune, and settled at Culpepper Court House, Virginia, where he married and raised a family. One of his daughters married a Mr. Hill, ad was the mother of the distinguished Confederate General, whose name was the last upon the lips of the dying Jackson, when in his delirium, he cried "A. P' Hill, prepare for action." Thus A. P. HILL's grandfather went from what is now Caldwell, but was then old Rowan.
I have no interest in this family and only post this as a resource.
