Sorry, when I wrote down the census information, I forgot to write down the house number.

1860 Smyth County, VA

Powers, Nancy 42
Jane 18
George 16
Matilda 2

In then 1860 census of Smyth County, there are several Powers; Harvey, age 49, John B. 49, Nancy 42, Andrew 40, Josiah 33, and Rachel 35 is in Wythe County.

As you can see, they are all about the same age. Just wondering what the connection is, cousins perhaps?

After the 1850 census, I lose William H. and Ezra. I cannot even find military records for them.

Also, someone mentioned to me the other day that Nancy and Rachel's father was an Andrew Powers. Well, it is obvious that it is not the one in the 1860 census and I have searched and I cannot find any Andrew that would fit the age category. I don't know, but I suspect that Ann was never married and most likely, Nancy and Rachel did not know who their father/fathers were.
