The only Powell in the 1810 census living in Mercer Co., KY
was John Powell. He is listed from 1810 to 1830 in Perryville Twp., Mercer Co., KY. In the 1830 cenus living in Perryville you have Jas Nixon and William Nixon. I also found marriage records for John Powell married Amy Bunch, Mar 12, 1806. Did you find James Powell death record. He died after 1880 in Martin Co., IN. that may tell you who his father is. I also sent you census record on James from 1850 to 1880. I hope this helps.
