I think that I may be onto something regarding my Powers family. As I have stated several times before, my 2xs great grandfather was George Michael Dallas Powers, son of Nancy Powers. With the help of a wonderful person a couple of years ago, I discovered that Nancy was the daughter of Ann Powers and unknown father. Ann is the head of household in the 1830 and 1840 census of Wythe County with her children in the home.
Today, I discovered a marriage record for a George Powers and Ann Lootz, June 21, 1810, Wythe County. I believe this may be my Ann Powers, who apparently became a widow earlier on. That would explain her lack of wealth when she was reported to the overseer of the poor in 1834.
Now, does anyone know anything about this George Powers who married Ann Lootz? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
