I hope this information is helpful.There was no Rezin Powell born 1796 about whom I have any information. Rezin Vermillion Powell was the son of Henry Powell (b. 1785 in North Carolina) and Priscilla (Pricey) Vermillion (b. abt. 1793 in Greenbriar Co., VA).They were married Jan. 15, 1810 in Lawrence Co., OH Pricey Vermillion was the daughter of Uriah Vermillion (b. 1761) and Susannah Barker (b. 1762).Pricey was the fifth of nine children in that marriage.Uriah was married a second time to Elizabeth Shumate Peters in 1801 and had seven more children in that marriage.There are many of us who descend from these two marriages who have a great deal of family genealogical data to share.Feel free to contact me for more information.
