Double headstone with John P. Tucker.

Actual birth date was May 1871 in Blount Co., Alabama.

Jo Anna Powell was the daughter and youngest of 6 children born to Anthony Wayne Powell and his wife Mary Ellender "Ellie" Bland (listed as "Nellie Bland" on Joanna's death record). She first appears on the 1880 Arkansas Census, Sevier Co., Mineral Township, with her parents.

Jo Anna's name is shown as "Jo Anna E. Tucker" on her headstone. Her marriage record showed her name as "J. I. Powel". Some family members have indicated her middle name was Isabell. Her name was shown as "Joanna E. Powell" on the 1880 Arkansas Census, Sevier Co., Mineral, with her parents. She may have spelled her middle name "Esabell".

The birth date for Jo Anna is shown as Jan 1869 on her headstone. This is an error. She appears to have been born May 1871. The 1900 Arkansas Census, Sevier Co., Mineral, shows her with her husband and her birthdate is shown as May 1871. The 1910, 1920 & 1930 census records (same place) also confirm this year of birth as does her marriage record. Since Jo Anna does not appear on the 1870 census with her parents, it is more likely that she was born in 1871 and not 1869.

Jo Anna I. Powell married John Phillip Tucker on March 30, 1890 in Sevier Co., Arkansas. He was listed as "J.P. Tucker", age 33, of Cove, Polk Co., Arkansas. She was listed as "J. I. Powel", age 18, of Silver Hill, Sevier Co., Arkansas.

Jo Anna's place of birth was shown as Georgia on the 1900, 1910 & 1920 census records with her husband. The 1930 census and 1880 census records showed her birth in Alabama.

Her parents were living in Blount Co., Alabama for the 1850, 1860 & 1870 census records. They were in Sevier Co., Arkansas for the 1880 census. Jo Anna most likely was born in Blount Co., Alabama in 1871.
