I have scans of the pages to two different POWELL family surname books.
The first one was written in 1906 and the second one is 1945.
The second one is an update of information on some of the families in the 1906 book.
All are relatives to me.
The first POWELL mentioned in these books is William POWELL, b.1750 of Maryland. In my case his descendants left the area and came on to Ohio to settle and flurish.
