Looking for information about: Robert (or John) Powell, married Louisa Short (father: Jonas Short; mother: Ms. Vardiman) in St. Tammany Parish in 1818. Three years later she sold the land. We don't have any record of what happened to her husband, where he was from. She later remarried Martin Kirkland and lived in Mississippi. Anyone with information about this family please respond. A son, Henry Jackson Powell, married Nancy Burch (Birch) and moved to Texas in 1863.
