Everything I have on her is in the memorial. I don't know if it is a custom of the Welsh, but marriage partners of children seem not to be mentioned in obituaries. I know Edna and Richard Daniel moved to Sarasota, Florida. I have a record of his death but nothing on her. He was 16 years older than she. I had a terrible time finding her maiden name and her family.

A simple "was taken care of would be sufficient".

Worthington, Powell, Evans
Jane Worthington-Powell and Ann Evans-Worthington were sisters from Llanidloes, Wales. Jane "Jennie" married Evan David Powell, who was born in Ebensburg, and they married December 12, 1889. Jane and Evan had eight children, but only two survived infancy. Surviving were Daniel Richard and Thomas Haydn. The two married, but never had children.

Ann Worthington, 22, and Thomas Edward Evans, Sr., 24, both of Llanidloes, Montgomeryshire, Wales, were married April 11, 1887, in Llanidloes.

I have a lot of history on both families, but to cut it short They lived side by side in separate houses on Clarion Street in Westmont. The Powell sons after retirement moved to Florida with their wives. I have obituaries on the families. The Powell's six children who died as infants are buried at Grandview. I believe their names are on the other side of the tombstone that commemorates Jane's Mother, Mary Morgan Worthington. The Evan's daughter, Mary Ann, married John Oliver Myers in 1949. She and her husband are buried near her parents as well as Thomas Edward Evans, Jr., who died in WWII.

Made a mistake. Ann Worthington Evans is the sister of Jane Evans-Powell. Disregard last message. I have the following information you can use for the Powell Family.

Evan David Powell of Westmont is suddenly called
Well-known Churchman became ill at Lorain Plant and died at hospital

Evan David Powell, an inspector for the Lorain St Company, was taken suddenly ill at the plant in the Seventeenth ward about 7:30 o'clock this morning and died at 9:15 o'clock at the Memorial Hospital, when he was taken soon after he fell over in the order office. Mr. Powell made his home at 146 Clarion Street, Westmont, and left there shortly after 6 o'clock this morning for the Moxham plant. He had not been ill and did not complain of being sick this morning. His death was due to apoplexy. The body was turned over to Undertaker Pendry, who prepared it for burial and removed it to the Powell residence this afternoon.

Evan David Powell was born at Ebensburg in 1866 and was a son of David and Eleanor (Hughes) Powell. He was a brother of David Powell, Jr., of Ebensburg and Howard Powell of the Second Ward, this City. Evan D. Powell came to Johnstown in 1888 and started to work for the Johnson Company in Woodvale. He helped to transfer this plant to the Moxham district and has since been with the company there Mr. Powell was one of the oldest employees in the Moxham plant, where he was highly esteemed by his fellow workmen. He was identified with the Veterans' Association at the Lorain Plant.

In December 1889, Mr. Powell and Miss Jane Worthington of this city, were married here by the late Rev. Dr. David M. Miller of the Presbyterian denomination. Besides his widow and brothers, the deceased is survived by two sons, Dan Powell, late of Roswell, New Mexico, but now of Jeannette, and T. Haydn Powell, at home. Dan Powell arrived home from Jeannette at noon today.

The deceased was prominent in church and Sunday School work here for a long time. He united with the South Ebensburg C. M. (Calvinistic Methodist?) Church many years ago and transferred his membership to the Vine Street Congregation during the pastorate of the Rev. D. C. Phillips. Mr. Powell was a Trustee of the Vine Street Church for a long time, was a teacher of a class of boys in the Sunday School, and sang in the Friendly Male Chorus for some years. He was identified with the Salem Church Reunion Association and was one of the promoters of the Presbyterian Church now being erected on Westmont. Mr. Powell was a member of Agla Commandery Knights of Malta Mountain Castle, Knights of the Mystic Chain and was identified with the Philharmonic Society under the leadership of Thomas E. Morgan.

Funeral services will be held at the Powell residence at 2:30 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon by the Rev. John Rhys Roberts of the Vine Street Congregation with internment in Grandview Cemetery.
