1850/css/108 GALumpkin Dahlanega Dist: fam.172: GASAWAY, Wesley 35 m farmer SC; Susan 30 f
TN; Elizabeth 11 f GA; Henry 09? m GA; Sarah 05 f GA; Feraby 04 f GA; Rachel 03 f GA.

1858 SCPICKENS Henry Gassaway has died and Wesley Gassaway is named as an heir.

1860/css/1195: ALWinston Twp.10 R.7: fam.34/34: GASSAWAY, Wesley 53 m farmer $30 $50 SC;
Susan 45 f TN; Henry 16 m GA; Elisabeth A. 20 f GA; Sarah A. 16 f GA; Emaline 13 f GA; Rachael 12
f GA; Josaphine 06 f GA; Martha J. 04 f TN.

HPNotes: Wesley Gassaway’s daughter, Sarah, married George Washington POWELL (1847-).
George is shown 1850 Census De Kalb Co., Alabama at age 3 with his mother Patience POWELL.

He is shown 1860 Census of Marshall Co., Alabama living with his presumed grandfather Lewis
POWELL (1779-) and Lewis’ daughter Edney Powell-Thrasher family.

In 1864 a child John W. POWELL was born presumably to George & Sarah. A marriage record is found
for 1867 in Chickasaw Co., Mississippi for G. W. Powell to Sarah A. Gassaway. I have not seen the
original of this record and presume the date 1867 is correctly transcribed and that George was age 17
when John W. was born.

George & Sarah are shown next in 1880 Census of Benton Co., Mississippi with sons J. W.; William;
James F.; Bryant Michael; a baby age 9/12 Susan who does not appear again; and a niece age 9 surname

George & Sarah’s last child, Rosalie, was born 1886 in Arkansas somewhere, possibly Baxter County and
next we see George in 1900 Census Sequoyah, Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory (Oklahoma). By this
time, George is a widower and with him are sons James F.; Bryant Michael & fifteen year old daughter
Rosalie. Nearby are the households of John W. & William Powell.
