aaaaaWelcome to our Powell family's genealogical website.

aaaaaPowell Quest was created as a tribute to our departed love ones, and as a beacon to help locate other ancestors and descendants who are, as of yet, unknown to us. To achieve this goal we are providing Free genealogical information about William Henry Powell, Mary Elizabeth Swartwood-Powell and their known descendants.

aaaaaOur Powell family can trace its lineage back to the rich oil fields of Bradford Pennsylvania of the late 1800's. William Henry Powell, our most distant Powell ancestor known to date, is believed to have been born in Troy New York on July 20, 1829. He also lived in Williamsburg New York during the 1850's were he joined the U.S. Navy and fought in the Second Opium War in China. William met and married Mary Elizabeth Swartwood sometime in the early 1870's. Mary was born on June 14, 1850 to John Swartwood and Sarah DeGout in Waverly New York. Both William and Mary Powell moved to Bradford, Pa. in the mid 1870's where the family became prominent oil producers. William died in Corry, Pa. in 1895 and Mary died in Bradford Hospital in 1915. Both are buried in the Powell Family Plot in Oak Hill Cemetery, which overlooks downtown Bradford, Pa.

aaaaaThe four people pictured above are the children of William and Mary Powell. They are, from left to right: Lloyd Swartwood Powell, Lee William Powell, Maude Pearl Lucy Powell-Arnts and Charles Henry Powell. All Powell descendants on this website can trace their lineage back to these four ancestors and to William and Mary. We hope you will enjoy exploring the rich history and heritage of our Powell Family Tree.
