DEMPSEY POWELL and a gristmill in Wake Co. NC in 1772

It sounds as though you already have this information, but I wanted to mention that in the book he compiled (HISTORY AND GENEALOGIES OF THE POWELLS IN AMERICA, 1935), Charles S. Powell mentions Dempsey POWELL on p. 233. "Petition of Dempsey Powell--for a Gristmill--on SmithCreek, March 3, 1772. June Court. File P. -- Basement of office of Clerk of Court, Wake Co. NC."
And:
"Wake Court Minutes, 1777-1784, p. 27, Capt. Powell's Dist. Assessors in County of Wake--Dempsey Powell, Justice Mich'l Rogers; Constable Wm. Mobley. Sept. 1777."
And:
"Persuant to an Order of Wake Court to us Directed we have Devided [sic.] the Property of Demey Powell Dec'd as followeth--23 Negroes, 10 Horses, Thirty Bushels of Wheat, 10,000 lb. of pork, 40 small hogs, 10 Feather Beds and funiture. 125 Barrels of Corn, 1690 lb. Cotten [sic.], 60 lb. of Flax, 20 chairs, a quantity of Puter [sic.] Earthen ware Sifters & Sives [sic.], a parcill [sic.] of Iron tools, &c. -- (viz)"

Several persons are listed in tabular format, including
Demsy Powell -- Charles and Frances at
and
Caswell Powell--James & Cate at

It looks as though both of them received 158 pounds, but there are other numbers I don't understand. I could FAX this page for your examination. Other names are Pleasant Powell, Robert Temples, John Streeter, James Fort, Benton Powell, John Sims, Pattie Powell, Jessey Powell, then some names were repeated (they received 1 horse each as well as pounds), and the last line is "Caswell Pattee & Jessey in Lue [sic.] of a horse..."
I have further information about the Capt. Powell of "Capt. Powell's Dist." mentioned above if you want it (see my response of 4-1-00 to posting by someone named Cardenas posted 9-12-99 about Thomas Powell of England; mine is entitled "William Powell b 1620").

Hi Mary...do you have info on Robert Temples? I am seeking
the parents of Andrew Jackson Temples, b.1819 {somewhere in
NC}, he purchased land in Monroe Co.IN. in 1848. There was also a Phillip Temples, b.1805 {somewhere in NC}, who lived
and owned property in Monroe Co.IN.,during the 1840's and 50's. Have been unable to tie them together and/or unlock
this line. Anytiome I come across a reference to Temples
from NC, I have to check it out. Thanks and heres hoping you
can help................................mobie in Indiana

Hello. I am a descendant of Clara Elizabeth Bell, whose maternal grandmother was Mary Mourning Powell, dtr. of Benjamin Powell, son of Caswell, son of Dempsey Powell. Mary Mourning Powell was always called 'Pollie'.Her sisters were Eliza Jimmie and Lydia Caswell Powell. I have a handwritten document written by Lydia Caroline Powell (m. Elisha Ray of Texas)which she titles "Geneology of the Powells". I allowed the Oklahoma Historical Society to copy this document, which unfortunately has fragments torn out of it. It starts with "The ancestors came from Wales, settled in Va. and moved to Halifax Co. N.C. before the Revolution." She then lists all of the sons and dtrs and who they married, where they moved (Tenn., Ms., Texas, Ind. Territory. If anyone wants it, I have a photograph of Lydia Caroline Powell and her husband, Mr. Ray with his two children, also another tintype of Mary Mourning and Eliza Jimmie dressed in their finery, and a professional photograph of Lydia Caroline, who had no issue, being self-described as a "barren woman, of as much use as a barren field". She whiled her time away in taking a trip to Wales to aquire furniture, painting in oils wherever she traveled. I have two of her paintings, one of a scene in Fla., one in Wales on "My grand tour of the old country". She was a newpaper columnist, a forerunner of Ann Landers, with a column called "Ask Aunt Pollie". She regularly took the waters in Eureka Springs, Ak. She said of her sister, Mary Mourning who married ____Bell that "she married beneath her". Why? Money? family? My sister has two large portraits of Mr. Bell and Mary Mourning (Pollie) and he is extremely handsome. Lydia was a member of Colonial Dames, as was her cousin in Texas. The Okla. Hist. Society has a book entitled 'The Annals of the Fowlers' by Mrs. James Joyce Arthur which contains letters from Lydia C. Powell to her cousin, Eliza Fowler.
