Re: Newbie-looking for my ancestors (Powell)
You haven't said if you have "Powells of Virginia and the South. The connection of Thomas the judge and Thomas of Wales is on a Chart by the Philadelphia Architect and in the research of a Cincinatti Powell. Without these you can't reach the onclusion that I did. I can't tell you of the many Powell lines and especially any 'Thomas' line before I had to resolve that I had the right one. There are so many Thomas Powells in early Virginia that it can be down-right confusing. But I'm certain of the line I have untill something other that's provable comes along. Even Mrs. Hiden, who wrote 'The Antecedants of Richard Powell of Amherst, Va." got this line a little mixed up. Another Powell, who researched his line of Powells and Hardings, was able to point out where she had gone wrong. The biggest problem was that she had alreay published the wrong infomation. And on it goes. I'm not on the 'NET' much so be patient waiting for my answers.. Also, I'm not home now. I'm in New York for the next 9 months and away form my 'research'.
