William Rees Powell @ GVMP
Thanks for the additional information. We were able to find the 1880 US Federal Census and 1895 MN State Census to confirm your 1871 year and Wales as the place. We've updated his page and added an explanation in the bio.

Any idea what the connection to Southern California was? Both William and his wife died elsewhere, but were shipped here for burial. That's not too unusual for the last surviving spouse, but somewhat unusual for both.

Thanks again!
