Starting in 1730, we see only Mrs. Elizabeth Power (and her slaves) on the list of tithables in Lower Norfolk. And in 1733, the list includes a son Sampson Junior. We assume that is the year he turned 16. Sampson and his mother's last appearance on the list of tithables is 1736.

The line of George C. Eller is provided by John Eller of Richmond, Virginia. John Eller is one of my son's best friends all the way through High School and College. We often joked that he was somehow related. As it turns out, we are!

There is some question about "Susan" or Susannah Eller and whether she is a daughter of Jacob and Mary. Ms. Porter only lists her as a possible daughter, but says she moved to Rabun County, Georgia. Charlotte Eller Marshall shows no Susannah, but does list three daughters for whom she has no names. We show her here, as the youngest of those daughters. She could, in fact, be any of the three.
Ed Eller (of Dalton, GA) shows her as a daughter of Jacob, but only shows five children (not George). Ed has located her gravesite. He also says she was unmarried (and the five children, illegitimate) which explains why they cary the Eller name from their Mother.

|RYAN, Raymond Whiting (I17879)
This Joseph may be key to connecting his brother Sampson to Mecklenburg County. Joseph sold his land in Princess Anne County between 1792 and 1795 to John Rose. This might make Joseph the Joseph Power in Mecklenburg County with whom Sampson Power is involved in a 1780 land deal.
We believe this Joseph Power went on to Spartanburg County SC and recieved a land grant on the Tyger River in 1785. He was on the tax rolls in Mecklenberg for 1783, but not 1784.
|POWER, Joseph (I15992)
This person is also shown as Elizabeth Ann Terrell (by Dale McKinney, 2002 W. Granite St., Siloam Springs, AR 72761). The other variation, Oxford, comes from Emma Dicken's 1952 book. He writes that he believes she may have been Elizabeth Ann Oxford Terrell. Her daughter, Mary Evaline Terrell Mozeley, also apparently dropped the Terrell. Elizabeth and her husband lived in the "Old 96th District" (SC?) before 1790 and then moved to Rabun County, GA about 1890 (Rabun was created in 1819 from land once owned by the Cherokees).

When Belle and Douglas Rudd were married in 1891, William Henry Powers gave them a farm that included a small log cabin. Several rooms were added along with a porch.
In the 1920's, the family moved to Chaptico, later to be Milford Rudd's home. Chaptico apparently originated from the roundtable and maintance facility that was part of a narrow guage railroad that was used to bring timber from rural parts of southside Virginia to the main railroad in South Hill.

Harvey Street Powers was a tobacco farmer who also raised beef cattle. He ran the "country store" originally operated by his father under the name "W.H. Powers and Sons," with a mailing address of Kinderwood, Va.
He was a member of the Lunenburg County School Board.
His property holding began with his father's "home place," Oak Shade. He added the farm that was left to his brother John and the property known as the Neblett farm.
He was active in Salem Church (Methodist) not far from the Powers farm although the author can not recall his ever attending church.
He enjoyed hunting, but there was a grove of oak trees between his home and "John's home" where there was a large family of squirrels, which were off limits. His shotgun was handed-down to this author who has given it to his namesake, Harvey Street Powers (RIN#0003).
The author also proudly uses Harvey Street Powers' roll-top desk, which was made by an itinerant cabinet maker from trees felled on the Powers farm.
Harvey Street Powers died from cancer.
