The goal of this project is to find ancestors of mine on the Powell side who immigrated to the British North American Colonies in the mid-1700s. I have information from a family source that my most distant Powell ancestor was born between 1787 and 1793 in Fairfield, North. The source I use gives two possible birth years. His parents came from Ireland, it is believed. William married one Vicy (possibly Lavicey Nelson), who was also born in Fairfield.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Jonathan Gilbreath.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- Finding the parents of William Powell (Powell-16380)
- Finding any relatives of theirs who may have come with them
- Finding their ancestors in Ireland
