Ms. Freeman, I am trying to find information about a John Powers married to Nelly Ewell. They appear in the 1860 Fed Census in Palo Cinto County, however I know they had relatives in the Whitesboro area before the Civil War. They did have Southern leanings as family in Missouri owned Slaves. Nelly Powers died in Missouri in 1897. John would have been way to old to do much during the Civil War. He was born in 1793. Can you tell me what your interests are and I'll compare them with my information and share what I have as well.
