I'm looking for any info on edmund powell born in 1815 in North Carolina. Married to Lucinda Engle in 1837 in indiana. I'm trying to find out who his parents are. he is my ggg grandfather. He died in 1872 in coles co illinois.
I believe that Edmund Powell (or Edmond Powell) may have been a brother or at least some relation to my ggg grandfather, Murphy Powell, born abt 1810 in NC. From what I can tell, Murphy Powell's parents were Henry Powell and Priscilla Beeson (possibly 2nd wife) who were married in Randolf County, NC in 1811. I've found a lot of information on the Beeson family, but not on the Powell side.
