Hello. I am researching my family tree, and through the work of a great-uncle of mine, I have found that my ancestor Thomas R. Powell married Sarah (Urquhart) Powell. Sallie, as she was called, was the daughter of Henry Urquhart. Henry was a large landowner in Coweta County, GA between Turin and Luthersville. I have not been able to locate him or anyone else in his family. He died, I presume, before 1887. My great-uncle found that she worked the land given to her by her father, but sold the land back to his estate in 1887. That being said, I have found no other information on him. I am descended from Thomas R. and his first wife, Susan Willingham.

Actually, I just remembered something. I am descended from Thomas R. and Susan Willingham. I was curious to see where Sallie's family came from. I am still getting a hang on the names of those who are my ancestors.
