My Powers Family Album

WILLIAM D. POWERS: b: 11/9/1765 Fredrick Co. Va. d: 6/6/1856, Jane Lew, Lewis Co, Va./WVa..
Wife: HANNAH STOUT b: 11/9/1765 Hunterdon Co, NJ. d: 8/4/1846 Jane Lew, Lewis Co. Va./WVa..

William is the father of Great Great Grandfather Benoni Teter Powers. I have a copy of a Certificate saying his mother was (Jemima Teter  ) and that William D. was his father and that Jemima and that she remarried to a first name unknown with the last name of Jones and moved West.

Also an article was Published in Volume XIV Issue 2 1995-1996 of the Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descendant's Journal.
Benoni T. Powers Family by: Michel O. Gould that said the same thing about his parents.

Everyone goes by the fact that WILLIAM D. POWERS had been married to HANNAH STOUT and leaving out JEMIMA TETER.

"Is there a more definite proof to be had on this family?"

I had been asked "Can you ID the older couple. I think they are Benoni C. and Polly but all I have are pictures when they were older. Also can you date it?" I was told about this one "Well, one of them is your Grand Daddy. As I recall Henry was your Great Grand Pappy. He is one of them. The rest are his Bros and their Ma and Pa - I think. T. Lee was my guy. He is sitting on the right side of the pix. Do you have any contacts that might ID the old ones for sure? How about Ms. Valentine? But I don't know who they are! DO YOU?
