      George Edward Powell?s wife was Mattie Van Dorn Jenkins. She was a school teacher and was a prolific reader. My father Edward Carter Powell and I took after that same trait . Hence my father?s intense study of ?racing forms? (he was a gambler that caused we children much distress), and also hence also my intense reading on scientific matters. Today with the internet I am in ?hog heaven?. Mattie's father Jonathan Jenkins was a Civil War Confederate veteran. He was captured and complained about the ?Parched peas? that the Yankees fed POWs. Jonathan was the only married son of about 15 sons of a Judge in NC. Jonathan Jenkin?s mother was, I believe a Lancaster. Jonathan was the only married son of about 15 sons of a Judge in NC. Mattie and George Edward had a daughter Patricia Lancaster Powell (no issue). Pattie was a CIA employee.

      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.
