George Washington Powell was born 1847 in Alabama. He was living at age 13 in Marshall County 1860 Census with
Lewis Powell (1779-) and George W. Thrasher family. After that census I find no record of him. I know he was there
during the Civil War. Before 1876 he was in Marshall County, Mississippi and was married to Sarah Gassaway (of
Tennessee). In 1880 Census of Marshall now Benton County:
Powell, G. W. head 34 AL AL AL
Powell, S. M. wife 34 GA TN SC
Powell, J. W. son 16 AL AL AL
Powell, William W. son 08 AL AL GA
Powell, J.[ames] F.[ranklin] son 06 MS AL GA
Powell, B.[ryant] M.[ichael] son 04 MS AL GA
Powell, Susan dau 9/12 MS AL GA born September
Edwards, Mary neice 06 AL AL GA
George’s last child, Rosalie Powell was born 1886 somewhere in Arkansas.
In the 1900 Census of Sequoyah, Indian Territory (about 13-miles south of Sallisaw) Sarah has died and George is alone with the
last 3-children: James F.; Bryant M. and Rosalie.
(1). I am trying to identify the two oldest sons, J. W. Powell (c.1864-) & William W. Powell (c.1872-) both born in Alabama. One
family story says my grandfather, Bryant Michael, had a 1/2 brother named “Walter”.
(2). Where in Arkansas did Sarah Gassaway-Powell die?
(3). When and where did George Powell (1847-) die. Family story says he is buried in Star Cemetery, Haskell County, Oklahoma.
We have been unable to locate any information or a gravesite.
