Yes I do have 2 scanned images of the Powis monument and one of the cross of branches marking the boundary between the Powis and Daniels lots at the Restvale Cemetery in Seneca Falls, NY. I will be glad to email them to you if you provide me your email address. One side of the monument reads in caps as follows: Richard Powis born Greenwich, Kent, England July 22, 1779, Died Seneca Co., N.Y. April 4, 1859 ---- Sophia wife of Richard Powis born London Eng'd, Aug 30 1784, died Feb. 27. 1870. The monument is surrounded by numerous other head stones from members of the Powis family. I have not researched the Powis line as I am not sure they are related; our Daniels family lore indicates that they were mariners of Welsh origin but I have no proof of the Welsh roots.
