Jackson Powell does have a son named william borne a little later in 1800's.And he had a son named robert who went to Missippi and was married to a woman named maggie.I believe tupalow, Miss. (I don't know if spelled wright)I my aunt Florence Powell who was daughter of Monroe, William's (Might be called Robert)brother.
Now I say that to say this, "Jackson could have a brother named william who named a son after him which was the custom.There is a william powell in the Union, SC and York, SC census.I don't any of Jackson Powell's people.Mother, Father, Sisters or brothers, but I sure would hope to find out.I hope william was a brother.
Jackson was born in 1806 or 1815. But does not appear in Union Census until about 1850.Which tells me He could have come in from someplace else.He died in Alms House, poor house, and was buried at duckpond, Lower fairforese cemetery so say an article about him in Progressive. I will try to attack it.
I hope this makes sense.
