I'll put this into the database. My POWELLs were in NE, too. I'll poke around a bit and see what I can find for you.

Hey Jeannine,
You should find a few POWELLs in the Long Island Genealogies. Not my lines, but I've seen several in there that helped others.

Just by way of very quick intro ... I'm researching the descendants and ancestors of Pearsall Brush POWELL (b 1798) s/o William POWELL and Abigail BRUSH of New York. I'm especially interested in continuing with William's ancestry - seeing as it took me over 13 years just to find him!

Hello Gary, and welcome!
I have two Levi POWELLs, but they are from VA and about a century before yours. Perhaps you may connect to one of them as your researches reveal further grandparents. I hope so.

Hi, Im Gary Powell from Tx., and Ok. My Powell lineage is from Ky, Tn, NC, and Va. I have researched back to my 3rd GGF "Levi Powell" born 1799 in NC, and died around 1862 in Knox, Co. Ky. His second wife was Ann Law's, first wife is unknown, whom he had most of his children, but My 2nd GGF he supposedly had with Ann. Just looking for his parents and any other info available.

Betty Jean, thank you. I'll plug these into the database here and keep track of any potential matches. I'll inform you here when they show up. Interesting is that I have Somerset County, MD ancestors, too. However, they are DIXONs.
