Alice Powell Warren (Powell-913) is attached to the wrong mother.  From the dates, it is clear she is the daughter of William's (Powell-979) second wife, Elizabeth Wyllys (Wyllys-8), not his first wife Margaret Whitney, including that if Margaret were alive, she would have been 56 when Alice was born.  Thanks.

Source for Elizabeth Wyllys

https://www.geni.com/people/Elizabeth-Powell/6000000003029810715

But a source cited there is this other site

http://www.smokykin.com/ged/f002/f46/a0024624.htm

which shows an Elizabeth Unknown marrying a later William Powell d 1695.

Geni led me to this

and that leads to this

who apparently is the same personage as

having gone round the Chinese whispers a time or two, though in what direction, I can't guess.
