In case this did not get posted in the last two days...
Does anyone know what became of this man? He was somewhat famous for a time
having been the Captain of Guard at a Florida prison in the 1880's and an
author. Born about November 1849 Georgia to Samuel W. POWELL and Harriet PACE.
Had a brother, William F. POWELL who also worked at the Florida prison camp for
a time. He was married to Elizabeth (Ann Elizabeth) MILLS in 1869 Georgia.
Their children that I know of were Thomas (1870 GA), Samuel N. (1874 GA), and
Fannie (1876 FL, married a WALKER).
I have a possibility that he may have died in Covington County Alabama
(married to Sarah with her sons Ralf P. and Otis). No way to confirm so far.
