identity of Stanton POWELL's parents is uncertain. He may have
been the son of E.A. POWELL and a Miss THOMPSON — the names inscribed
on Stanton's death certificate by his second wife, Mrs. Winnie
POWELL. Winnie should
have been able to correctly identify her mother-in-law, considering
that the two women appear to have lived together for more than a
decade. Both were recorded in Stanton's household on the U.S.
census in 1910 and
1920. Listed as Eliza H.
Stanton's mother was born
about 1853 in Alabama. Other evidence suggests that she was Eliza
Hasseltine POWELL (1852-1925), also known
as Hasseltine or "Puss"
highly regarded midwife in the Bluff community. More
research is needed to resolve this matter.
Stanton attended school with his only sibling, Bertha Lee POWELL
at the Bluff school
mid-1880s. He was listed as a voter in Bluff in 1904.
Stanton remarried in 1909 and left Fayette County sometime after
1912. The family lived in Oklahoma (Pittsburg and Seminole
before settling in Cameron Co., TX, about 1920. Stanton A. POWELL
was struck and killed by a car while he was walking home from work one
evening in 1933.
