Well, not sure I can help you but I have a Ambrose Powell born March 17, 1829 in Harlan Co. Ky and died August 18, 1896, Harlan Co. Ky.

He was married to a Margaret Smith who I believe was his second wife.

Ambrose who died in 1827 in Maury Co married a Miss Holt before coming to TN, and all his children were hers. After arrival in TN he married Margaret Knox (a widow). Her children were all by her first marriage to James Knox. One of Ambrose's sons married one of Margaret's daughters, so depending on how you are descended, you might be connected to her. For Ambrose's children, begin with the 1830 lawsuit which names them all, along with some grandchildren.

Hi,

Do you know of a site or book to try and request that has a copy of the law suit.
Thank you, Diane

The historian at the Maury Co. Historical Society has kindly sent out photocopies of the lawsuit. It is difficult to decipher. Look on the Powell Forum of GenForum; you will find a number of messages there dealing with Ambrose and his lineage, including transcriptions/translations of the lawsuit and a "sorting" of the children.
