I was hoping that someone could help me with two obits. Ray Powers born 3-16-1913 to 3-30-1999. His wife, Eva Powers, born 1-21-1916 to 2-26-2000. All I have is at the time of their death they were in Beltsville. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Social Security Death Index says that RaY's SSN was issued in California and Eva's in Minnesota. Do you have a specific location where they lived in either state?

Do you know whether Ray always went by Ray or whether he had a middle initial or was known as Raymond? There was a Raymond W. POWERS of Hennepin Co., MN, in 1930; Ray E. of Marion Co., IA; & Ray of Milwaukee, all born approximately 1913.

Do you have Eva's maiden name or the names of her children?

All I have, is at the time of there death they where in Beltsville and that he was a minister. I don`t have a maiden name for Eva.

I don`t know of any other name Ray would have gone by. His middle name was Edward. I don`t know his whereabouts after leaving Ca. and his death in Maryland.

I just found out that they have a son Phillip and a daughter Judy. Whereabouts unknown.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Do you know the denomination of the church of which Ray Edward POWERS was a minister? If so, the church should be able to help.

The E. would match Ray E. of Marion Co., Iowa, 1930: POWERS, Charles E., b. ca. 1869; Mary M., 1874; Ruby, 1903; Cecil D., 1909; Ray E., 1914; Helen M., 1916.

Social Security Death Index has several Cecils. The most likely match seems to be Cecil POWERS (24 May 1908 - Oct. 1975), last res. Des Moines, IA.

I don`t know the denomination of the church that Ray belonged to. He was born in Nebraska and grew up in California. His parents and a brother are buried there.

Ray was not a minister, his son is a minister. Ray was a retired postal service worker and then worked for Sears for several years before his retirement.
