Here's what I have from
1. My research
2. Helen's research
3. Yvonne's research
4. Jane Foley's research
I'm still trying to figure out Anthony's life before 1848/49..... I'm still
suspicious that he may have had a previous family before wife Elenor & son
George....


POWELL, ANTHONY WAYNE
birth: 1812/13 SCPendleton
death: abt. 1908 ARSevier, bur. Valley Cemetery
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

father: George Powell (1794SC-1872AL) of SCPendleton- TN ALBlount
mother: Elizabeth Kirksey Davis

sp1-ELENAR nee?
birth: c.1824 AL (1850 census)
death: 1906 AR, bur. Valley Cem.
Notes: Buried beside "Wayne Powell (1812-1908)" in Valley Cemetery is
"Nellie Powell (1844-1906)" It would seem that this should be Elenar of the
1850 census who was born about 1824 AL (census). "Nellie" in the cemetery
was supposedly born in 1844. Researchers for this family say that Anthony
had a 2nd wife named "Mary". My first instinct would be that he only had
the one wife Elenar "Nellie" and that the cemetery record transcription
below is an error with the birthdate that should be 1824 instead of 1844.
If there was a sp2-named Mary, she may have fitted in somewhere between
1906-1908.
Cem Rec's: [Powell, Wayne 1812-1908] [Powel Nellie 1844-1906]
sp2-MARY b.c. 1826 AL (researcher)
HPNote: spouse Mary appears to be a census aberration as both names are
either incorrect or they are not the same people.

ABOUT ELENAR POWELL
HPNotes: Anthony's wife appears as "Elenar", "Nellie", and "Mary". Her age
is pretty consistent in the records. I think she might be named "Mary
Elenar" and called "Nellie".
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~
ABOUT ANTHONY WAYNE POWELL:
I can't find him anywhere in the records until the 1850 census where he
appears at age 37 with a new wife and a baby son named George W. Powell born
1849. Anthony has just started a family...... or is it a new family....I
can't make any sense of him before 1850. In 1830 an "A. Powell" signed the
census returns for Blount County, AL.
Researchers say: Anthony and wife Mary moved in 1870's to Sevier County,
Arkansas......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now GUESS what Curtis Powell named one of his sons.... Anthony Wayne
Powell...... and Curtis can't figure out how he came up with that
name....Now for Benjamin..... I might have another theory too..............I
'll send this first... can't find my message about Jonathan Winchester
Powell who also showed up in Sequoyah County... a younger one than George's
son J.W.Powell who was born 1822 in ALBlount- ..... but the name is too
strange not to be related.

Hannah's Notes: The above George Washington Powell according to 1850 census
was born about Dec of 1849, could
be an error, however Anthony Powell, b. 1812 would be the right age to be
