These children all mig. west after the Civil War, stillborder hopping, and by the time they got to AR & OK, their childrendidn't know whether they were from AL, TN, MS or AR. . .anyway, Mr.pain-in-the-rear Powell who died without leaving his name anywherethat I can find may have been holed up in Marion County part of thetime. On military records, two of his boys gave their address as"Shell Mound, AL" which I understand is just across the border fromMarion Co.
