Please tell me the father of this George Pownall:

GEORGE POWNALL (AA) was born in 1787 and died April 11, 1856 and is buried in a cemetery located about two miles north of Deefield, Portage County, Ohio. He married Agnes Pancake who was born in Virginia. She is buried in the same cemetery as George.

       A Joseph P. 6-21-1810, Sarah Du Boiis
       B Andrew G. 1821 Jane Rogers

       George Pownall and wife were part of the Baptist congregation in 1818 in Portage County, Ohio (176-420). “In 18?? another church was organized by Rev. Andrew Clark, a Baptist minister, and the members from
Pennsylvania were William Brown and wife, Benjamin McDaniel and wife, George Pownall and wife, and Abigal Tuttle.” (176)

       JOSEPH P. POWNALL (AAA) was born January 21, 1810 and married Sarah Du Bois September 15, 1836. Sarah was born April 13, 1813.

       A Mary Emaline 9-23-1839, 12-2-1899 George Robb
       B Lydia A. 3-16-1838 George W. Fox

       A tombstone inscription in the cemetery two miles north of Deefield, Ohio reads “Nancy Pownall, wife of Joseph P. Pownall, died December 10, 1831 at age 20 years, 7 months. Probably Joseph’s first wife. TVR could not distinguish with certainty the date.

       According to H.H. Robb, Joseph P. Pownall went to Missouri where he died and was buried. There was an intimation that Joseph had fled Ohio to escape the consequences of some illegal act.

       “Grandma Robb’s father, Grandpa Pownall, migrated to Missouri where he died and is buried. I’ve heard Dad tell of the place, but have forgotten.” (18-72)

MARY EMALINE POWNALL (AAAA) was born September 23, 1839 in Deerfield Township, Portage County, Ohio and died December 2, 1899 in Williams County, Ohio. She married George Robb November 14, 1861. In the spring of 1866 they moved to Williams County where they have since resided. Mrs. Robb was the mother of five children, three boys and two girls. Elmer, the oldest, lives near Nashville, Tennessee and Clinton, the youngest departed this life at the
age of one year and three days and the mother now rests beside him. Grant, Minnie, and Emma live in Williams County. Six grandchildren, also three brothers and two sisters are left to travel life’s way without her. Mrs. Robb united with the
church when 18 years of age and has ever lived a devoted Christian life and several times in her last sickness expressed herself ready and willing should the summons come. She often spoke of her trust in Christ as her Savior and had great faith in prayer. Mrs. Robb had an active disposition and enjoyed work. She was careful and orderly about her home. Anyone who enjoyed the hospitality of her home must have noticed the perfect order that prevailed there. (James Allen Robb, son of Clarence Allen Robb, had Mary Emaline’s Bible)(James is now
I'll be grateful for any help you give me. Thanks. Tracy V. Robb
