Carol,
I am SOOOO happy to have found you! I have been trying to sort through a puzzle, and maybe we can help each other. Through my Powers line, I have been working on Edward Powers (b.1773) and Mary (b. 1790). One family relative (who is now deceased, Howard Leaming) says that Edward Powers married Elizabeth Luce on 5 Oct 1800. Another family member, Anna Powers (who is also deceased) says that he married Mary Wright on 22 Sep 1810. I have a set of 10 children that belong to one of them, the first child being Rachel (b.1812), children #4 and #5 are twins, Edward and Mary (b. 1817). This Mary (dau.)married Thomas B. Faulkner in 1844. I have some strong reasons to believe that all these relatives were Quakers. Edward and Mary Powers are buried in Greene Co., OHio in a Quaker cemetery called New Hope.
There were two Edward Powers in Clinton Co.,OHio in the US Census of Ohio in 1820, one in Chester Twp., and the other in Clark Twp. One of them moved to Greene Co.,Ohio in 1824 or 1826. This is the Ed and Mary Powers with 10 children. But is the mother Mary Elizabeth Luce, or Mary Wright???

Can you shed any light on this confusion? I would soooo much appreciate it. Also, I can share more information with you, if you like. Maybe we are related! Thank you, Cindy

PS My last question: do you have your information from family stories, word of mouth, or from records of vital statistics? This helps to know. Thanks :)
