children:
Frank b. Nov(?) 1896

Next to

Julia Martin b. May 1882

Note: Julia Martin is my aunt. I believe her parents are Jordan and Jane (affectionately known as “Judge”) Martin. Julia Martin later married William Phillips and had a daughter named Sarah. Julia had a sister named Bama (I have not been able to find Bama in any of the records…it is possible that Bama is a nickname, and the name she was born with is Agnes?). Bama married a man with the last name of Dock and had a daughter named Jane. I am also related to a Luke Martin and a Jim (Martin or Green).

    I am just beginning to look into my family background. My grandfather, Henry Russell Powell, I believe was born in Summerfield Dec 7, 1868. On his death certicicate in Richmond County, GA lists his father as Frank Powell and his mother as Kate Martin. In another place I found a reference to Anna Elizabeth Martin. Can you shed any light on this little bit of information?

    Thank you for stopping by! I will be in touch if I find any information…
    You are welcome to post a query on this page, under the heading of Martin.

    * This is the e-mail address to someone researching the Powell family in Dallas County, AL:

    POWELL Alwilter or William Wilson, alwilter@erols.com

    I found the name at:
    Dallas County Surnames and Researchers
    http://www.prairiebluff.com/algenweb/dallas/dalnames.htm

    * Also, Genealogy of Powell family in South Carolina and North Carolina:
    http://home.earthlink.net/~kmcgee03/dtadspyron.html#powell

    * The 1880 Census is free online and I cannot find these names for Dallas County, AL, also had trouble in Georgia…

    Here is a link to the 1880 Census at Ancestor Hunt:
    http://www.ancestorhunt.com/free_1880_census_online.htm

    * Does Henry Russell Powell have any siblings? If so, what are their names?

    * Is the Powell family from AL or GA? How about these Martins?

    * Do you know of any other spellings of these names?
