Unbelievable that you found that much information!! Yes, I do know that they are buried there except for Minerva because the listing I found didn't give dates for her. I have an uncle living in Pickton and I have been trying to prompt him to go
look up these people but I suppose he doesn't have the time.
And I still haven't gotten past the brick wall of who James Lyman Powell's parents were. He was born in IL, and according to my father, peoria IL area. My Grandfather was
William Cebron Powell, J. L. Powell's second child born in Wood Co TX.1873, married to Exa (Whisenant) Powell. The Whisenants came from GA and settled in Smith Co. TX. You have been very helpful in answering some of my otjer questions though amd I thank ypu I will look into thodr tecorfs you mentioned. Thanks Colleen
