For years, I have been chasing information regarding my 2xs great grandfather, George Michael Dallas Powers, b. 1845 in Smyth County, VA. George in the 1850 census of Smyth County with is mother, Nancy Powers. A couple of years ago, I received information that Nancy and her sister, Rachel were the daughters of Ann Powers. I was never sure that Ann had married because she is the head of the household in the 1830 an d1840 census of Wythe County (prior to the formation of Smyth County). Today, I discovered a marriage for a George Powers to Ann Lootz, June 21, 1810, Wythe County.
Does anyone have any information on George Powers who married Ann that would tell me whether or not I am on the right track? I know that Ann had several children including Nancy, Rachel, Rebecca, William, Ezra and a daughter who is unknown.
Nancy did name her only son, George which makes me believe that her father may have been named George.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
