  • Notes 
    • I am now assuming that Joseph Powell is the son of Cord Hazzard Powell and Mary Elizabeth _____. His parents were living in Worcester County, Maryland in 1850. In the familysearch.org record submitted, a Hazzard J. P. Powell is named as the son of Cord Hazzard Powell and Mary Elizabeth _____.

      There is an 1860 Sussex Co. Delaware census record with a Hazzard J. P. Powell, 10 years old, in a Jones household. In the marriage record of Joseph Powell and Jane Cunning, Joseph's parents are listed as Hazard and Elizabeth. I believe that this "Hazzard J. P. Powell" is Joseph Powell.

      This may be my Joseph Powell in the 1880 Kent County, Maryland census: Roll 512, page 32D.

      In the probate record, the death date is written as February 1st on one page and February 11th on another.

      April 2009 - I found February 1911 newspaper articles describing the finding of Jospeh Powell in a ditch covered in snow. The death index card on familysearch.org has Joseph as FOUND on February 11, 1911.

      June 2009 - Looking over census records again, I notice that Hazzard J. P. Powell is living with the same Jacob Jones in 1860 that Hiram Powell is living with in 1870.

      5April2014 - I found the probate record for "Coard H. Powell"... familysearch.org...Worcester County, Maryland Accounts 1853-1857 vol GBG, no 4. Wife is Mary E. Powell. Children are Mary H., James K. P., Hiram D., Eliza E. or C., Narcissa E. P., Hazzard J. P., Sarah G. or J. C., and William R. Powell.
