Do you have the names of Sarah's parents and siblings?
If her father was Obadiah, the Powell family originated in Bethpage, Long Island NY via Thomas Powell. I think your Sarah was a sister of my Frost Powell.
I have listed as children of Obediah & Elizabeth Frost Powell as follows:
Ann Dec 1763 - 1870
Ethlennah 18 Apr 1766 - ?
Frost 1 May 1768 - 25 Nov 1846
Patience 1769 - ?
Rhoda 1777 - 11 Jun 1855
Sarah 10 Jan 1780 - 23 Oct 1863
Dorcas 1780 - ?
William B. Mar 1788-20 Nov 1868, Buried New Gansevoort Cemetery, Gansevoort, NY; Obediah 18 Nov 1791-20 Nov 1855.
Moses moved his family to the Dutchess/Westchester Co area in the early 1700s; his son Obadiah, and grandson Frost POWELL are my lines. Obadiah and Frost settled in Stillwater, Saratoga Co., NY and later Frost was in Steuben Co., NY for a time.
I am not researching in order to join a hereditary society but there is a lot of niformation on Ancestry if you are a member, but I don't know about the resources or if they are reliable but they would give you places to check in order to verify.
Good luck, Sorry I am not able to give you any more help.
