As far back as we have discovered, our heritage began with WILLIAM POWELL, a slave called Aspen received his freedom in 1863. He married Sarah (December 10, 1868), a Cherokee Indian. The Powells migrated to Alamo, Tennessee from Virginia. William and Sarah were the parents of four children: Amaritta Sarah Emmer Powell, Thaddeus Powell, Uriah Powell, and Cornelius Powell. From where our heritage began, many generations have contributed to our legacy.
