Powers, Lois

Birth Name Powers, Lois
Gender female
Age at Death 77 years, 2 months, 20 days


She is buried in Porter Cemetery, Ferrisburg, VT.

[kdd: I suspect Lois Powers is related to (probably aunt) Silas Powers who named his children:
Paul, Lois, Artemas, Lovina, and Julia
Also Joseph Powers who had sons Moses and Nathan.
Silas, Lavina, Joseph, and Gideon, Jr. were sons of Gideon Powers and Ruth Hosmer of Temple, NH.
Gideon was son of Gideon Powers and Lydia Russell of Littleton, Mass.
(see "A Genealogy of the Descendants of Joseph Bartlett of Newton, Mass.")

In "The Powers family : a genealogical and historical record of Walter Power and some of his descendants":
Gideon Powers and Lydia Russell had children:
Gideon b.1729
Elliott b.1732
Jonas b.1738
William b.1740
(missing daughters?)
Note Gideon's brother Jonathan named a daughter Lois b.27 Mar 1732
Gideon s/o Capt. Isaac Powers, s/o Walter Powers b.1639 and Mary Winship]

Note: Noah Porter served in Rev War from Richmond, NH with Joseph, Nathaniel, and Abner Powers.
also in Charlestown, NH with Abner, Simeon, Nathaniel, Benjamin, Whitcomb, Joseph Powers
(all names in Walter Powers descendants in NH)

Her daughter, Lois Potter Davis said she was of Irish stock, and another line of Powers came from Ireland unrelated to Walter... http://news.rootsweb.com/th/read/HCPD/1999-07/0933342908

Event Note

many trees carry a birthdate of 1742-08-17 . This seems to have come from Frank Fremont Porter's earlier genealogy based on word of mouth, and is probably wrong.

Death 1820-10-25 Ferrisburg, Addison Co, VT   2a
