POWELL, Silas H. Marriage
Wife: Margaret E. FELLERS
Marriage Date: 31 Jul 1873 Recorded in: Fairfield, Ohio
Husband's Father: George POWELL
Source: FHL Number 295270 Dates: 1869-1880

I found an old picture box with Powell information. There are some pre 1900's, 200 or so of early 1900's, and 20-40 modern day. It also includes alot of post cards and:

George Powell death notice - Jan 31, 1893 Indiana
Silas H Powell and wife Margaret E Powell - picture
Chauncey Wood Powell - various tax statements in Ohio and Michigan - 1940's to 1950's.
Chester W Powell - high school report card 1921
Note: the tax statements may be Chester's. Same initials.

I bought this box in Houston, Harris county, Texas for 35.00 at a flea market. I am trying to find any direct decendant of this family. Hopefully to find them here in Texas. Might you be able to help? Sure would like to return the box to the right family.
