- I have been researching the Abner Powers 1801-1853 b. TN
d. MS and related names. He married Sarah Dunn in Robertson Co.
Tn in 1828. His children were Stephen Conyers and Azariah Francis.
These two boys marry Margaret Jane and Martha Ann Stevens of
the Washinton Co. Stevens Conrad, et al. Other names for which
I have searrched for 22 years are the wherabouts of Lewis B.,
John, kin to Abner. I think it may be possible that this family
of Powers came from Washington County along with the Stevens
to TN. Any help will be appreciated. Emmett E. Powers

Friday, November 17, 2000
- I have recently learned that my James Robert (called Robert)
SUIT(S) and his wife Missouri ROWLAND lived in the Damascus area.
The time frame would have been about 1900-1920. Also, I have
reason to believe that another line of mine, Enoc Franklin ANDERSON,
called Frank, may have lived in the Damascus, Washington Co.,
VA. area as well. This would have also been between 1900-1920.
Frank was married to Margaret Keesling at the time and was a
Baprist Preacher. Would anyone know of records of the Baptist
Church in Damascus? If anyone has any info on either of these,
I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you.
