red mail Howell
I am looking for a relative Howell Powell born January 1, 1783, a native of Brecknockshire, Wales. It is said he went to England and secured work as a gardener on an estate of the family Richards. He fell in love and eloped with their only daughter and returned to Brecon, Wales where he took on the name Howell Francis or Howell Francis Powell. Our family history recorded in 1938 mostly from both research and word of mouth (family records dating back to at least the 1600s were lost to a fire) says we are related to the Powell ap David Rawling/Catherine Gough line of 1611, however we seem to be missing a generation approximately 1725 to 1780, as we don't know the parents of Howell Powell, nor can we find the family of Mary Ann Richards. Please help.
