Thank you for taking a moment to remember our dear Grandpa John.
Your visit is very appreciated. God bless.


༺⊰❁ John Briggs Powell was the son of William and Elizabeth Briggs Powell, who were farmers, born on March 19, 1824, South Charleston, Clark County, Ohio. His parents were married on November 16, 1820 in Clark County, Ohio. John's parents later divorced and both remarried. William married Mary Anderson and Elizabeth married Jacob Kizer. John married Caroline Hon Powell on November 5, 1845.
Known children of John Briggs and Caroline Hon Powell:
1) Sarah Jane Powell Buffenbarger, born 1846 in Ohio;
2) Dallas Powell, born 1847 in Ohio;
3) Mary Powell Elder, born 1851 in Ohio;
4) Melinda Powell, born 1853 in Ohio;
5) William Hon Powell, born 1855 in Ohio;
6) Caroline Powell;
7) Anna Powell; and
8) Lizzie, born 1859 in Ohio.
Dallas died young after the 1860 census and may also be buried in Old Columbia Cemetery in Springfield, Ohio. Dallas also has a carved life-like lamb on top of his headstone, the same as Arizona.
Their daughter Mary married Sam Elder and they had a son Arlee Elder.
We know that Caroline and Anna died while young ladies, know nothing about Lizzie, which may have been a nickname for one of the two younger girls, and that is all we know about the girls at this time.
GG-Grandpa John Briggs Powell passed away in Selma, Ohio in 1902.


May Grandpa John rest in the loving peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Note: Elizabeth Briggs Powell, born October 8, 1803, Ross County, Ohio. She was the daughter of John Marion Briggs and Catherine Peterson Briggs.
