RE: Mabel McLawhorn
Find A Grave had no Powell Cemetery Listed. I added that cemetery and changed Mabel's memorial to that cemetery.

RE: Mabel McLawhorn
I have John Powell's children listed as Josepine and Martha. Because I was focusing my family research on the Morris and Franks families, I have not yet delved into the history of the spouses. There may be more children for John Powell; I just haven't researched them in depth as of this date. I had your brother listed as James Eliott not James Darrell.

Username John47 had made the memorial for James Henry McLawhorn. His memorial number is 93636800. I made Aunt Mabel's memorial and others so that they could be linked with their family members. Can you look at James McLawhorn's memorial and tell me if that is the correct grave for him? If that is the correct gravesite, then it might be that when someone added the Morris gravesites, they took it upon themselves to name it Morris Cemetery. This particular cemetery is listed as being on webster lane. I did notice that on there is a 2 acre plot of land that is used for a cemetery on Butler Ford Rd. Then there is a Powell Rd just down the road on 43.

On quite a few death certificates, the burial place is listed as "Morris Family Burial Grounds". These 2 cemeteries might be the same.

I just sent you an invitation to view the family tree. I believe that the invites go to your email address. I'm not entirely sure on that though.

Hi Gerald,

I have a Martha Eliot Powell Born 16 Mar 1878 Died 19 Feb 1926. She married Francis Marion Morris. Martha's father is John Powell Born 1836 Died 1924. Her mother is Mary Jane Laughinghouse Born 1834. Is this the information that you need? Do you have an Ancstry account? If you do, send me a request to view the family tree. My user name is deanna496

I have done extensive family research. Because Nina married Samuel Bishop Franks, I have alot of information on both the Morris and Franks families.

Gerald,

Mabel's sister, Nina, was my Grandmother. Yes, we are related.

I'll check the databases that I use to find cemeteries. Some of my resources list directions for the cemeteries. I thought I saw something for 43.

RE: Mabel McLawhorn
I need more information on the "Powell Cemetery". I've researched all of the cemetery records that I can find on all the databases that I use and cannot find that cemetery. The only cemetery that comes close to it is the Powell-Gaskins Family Cemetery. Do you have an address for the cemetery that you are referencing?

Thanks,
Deanna
