My name is Cynthia Robinson and Mary Jane Powell was my grandmother. I am searching for any relatives and records that exist for my family. I know some of my family are Cosby. My grandmother was Ethel Mae Folden daughter of Jesse Folden and Mary N Churchill.
Jesse is the son of Ambrose and Mariah and Ambrose is the son of Mary Jane and Sam. There was an article written about my grandma and posted in the Sunday Gleaner.
Quan Arnett Pruitt has some information and i would love to contact her so that she may assist me in my research on my family. I also need more info on Sam Folden and is there any powell family members who may have some old family records so i may try to find out who Mary Janes parents were?????
Cynthia, where are your Powells? Powells and Cosbys are prominent in SC and GA. Are they Southern or Northern?
