GIBSON -   Leanore Gibson is in Sumter County with her five children in 1840.  She is listed as head of the family.  We don't know what happened to her husband, we don't know her maiden name.  She moved to Pike County, Al shortly after 1840 and lives close to the same Gibsons from Sumter that also moved to Pike.  We think there might be a connection between her late husband and Samuel Royal Gibson and his family.  Just can't seem to make one, then again we could be wrong in that assumption.   Anything that anyone can help us with would be appreciated. 2-11-2002

Possibly poisoned by her own tribe, Eliza and Johns father was a Scotsman, the tribe did not approve of the marriage.

WORRELL/ DURANT - Does anyone know the connection between Bryant Worrell to John Durant? John Durant and Bryant were both listed on the 1820 Federal census of Sumter County.  This is the only connection we have been able to discover.

Bryant named one of his sons John Durant Worrell.  John Durant Worrell was born in Sumter County c. 1817.

Bryant's wife was Dorcas.  Family history states her last name was Byrd and she was born in Sumter County c. 1795.  The only female Byrd born about this time, that we have been able to discover, was Mary Byrd who supposedly married a Mr. Williams.

Bryant and Dorcas did have a daughter, born in AL, who they named Mary Ann Worrell.  This is not to suggest that Dorcas was Mary Byrd.  Bryant's mother may have been Mary Worrell and his daughter named after her.

The other son of Bryant and Dorcas was named Kinchen Thomas Worrell.  He was born in Sumter County c. 1822.

If anyone can information that will make sense of this, please let me know. April 6, 2002.

POWERS - The individuals I am interested in tracing are John and Annie Powers.  John was born somewhere in S.C. in 1795. In one official document his son, George Washington Powers, (referred to as "Washington"), stated that his birthplace was "Clarendon County".  The 1850 Sumter County census verified the family members by name but it is possible the family actually lived in that portion of Sumter which I understand became Clarendon.  A web site noted that many people living in that area always thought of themselves as being from Clarendon.  I would like to find out more about Annie but have no leads.  In the 1850 Census there are a number of "Powers" listed close together sugesting they were neighbors as well as reletives.  I would like to correspond with anyone who might have come across the name "Powers" in their research in this geographical area but do not know how to go about it. Does anyone have an indexed 1840 or 1830 census? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. April 13, 2003
