Is this the Francis Powell who married Nancy Whitehead, daughter of John and Sarah, 2 Dec. 1784, in Amherst County, VA and moved to Monticello, GA? Do you have a source for his death date?

This is the same Francis Powell, however, he moved to and died in Danburg, Wilkes, GA. (Monticello is in Jefferson Co.)
I don't have a definite date of death, however, it was between Jan. 1, 1838 and March 22, 1839. These dates are derived from guardianship and Adm'r returns records. Nancy died between the 1820-1830 censuses.
This is not the same Francis Powell as those of Elbert and Lincoln Counties.

Keith Giddeon, are you still out there? I have lotsa info about Nancy Marshall Williams, wife of Nelson Powell (among others!). I desend from her oldest brother, William Marshall Williams Sr, who died 1800 in Wilkes Co GA. Her father was Drury Williams who died 1806 in Wilkes Co GA.

Would love to compare notes with any interested party! Mrs. Powell's maternal line can be traced to James Towne 1616.

Yes, still here. I have all I need on Nancy, now. I did receive a photo of Nancy taken around 1848-50, with her son, Green Marshall Kendrick. Very interesting that I can still find old things like that.
