This is quite interesting: Yesterday we buried Vera Powell, wife of Spurlin Orvid Powell (20Apr1915-3Aug1997). Spurlin was the son of Nathaniel Truitt Powell and Mary? Spurlin? Too many clues within this my writing, and your messages on Genforum not to base the names together.My Powells didn't come to Panola Co., TX until the 1910 census where we find three distinct families: 1. Luke M. Powell = Lula Mae Scott(Luke b. ca. 1852)
2. Nathaniel Truitt Powell = Mary P. Spurlin (Nat b. 1876)
Named one of their sons, Spurlin Orvid Powell !!
3. Alfred Powell = Theodora Agnes Scott
Please let me know if you can place these three Powell families within your database?
