One addition to you ancestor list.

The will of David Lilly (married Lucretia Phelps) lists a daughter Susan Powers (decsd). Susan Lilly (born apx 1832 according to census records died prior 1866 in Johnson KY) married David A Powers born apx 1828/30, son of Henry Powers (1802/6)and Sarah/Sallie Gobble of Washington VA.

Washington County VA Will Book 17 Pg 480/481.

"And I will that Susan Powers decdt have to the benefit of his (sic) several heirs what will make to them twenty dollars."

This will agrees with the death certificate of Susan's daughter "Creasy" Powers married to Francis Hurt in Johnson KY. Her mother was listed as Susan "Lillie"....

David and Susan are listed as "Bowers" in the Washington VA 1850 census and as Davis Power,Susan and family in the 1860 Johnson, KY census.
