  • Notes 

    • 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.
