I am just beginning my search on May POWELL born april of 1900 in I believe Il, She was married to Aud Dallas in carrier Mills Il., her father was Jethro Honor POWELL b abt 1873 in Missouri and her mother was Elizabeth TANNER b abt 1875 in Dykersburg Williamson Il.(Elizabeth's father was James TANNER and mother Catherine).. I believe Jethro married a second time to Nora TANNER, the sister of Elizabeth., likely after the death of Elizabeth.I believe Jethro's father to be William R POWELL b abt 1834 in Tn, and a Mary A surname unkown b 1835 also in Tn. The information here is from the census. I have never done any research this far back in the US. So far all my research has been in other countries, I am not experienced with US research and need some help, please so if this family sounds familiar to you please let me know. May POWELL was my former mother in law and I am researching her to fill in my daughter's family history. Any help or suggestions will be appriciated.
