      Edward Powell in your records is almost certainly my grandfather. I remember him. I think that the birthdate you have recorded is too early. I think he was born circa 1883 , but, I'm not certain. His offspring were my father Edward Carter Powell, daughter Gale, daughter Elizabeth Powell Kavanaugh.
