Re: ancestor of pianist-composer Bud Powell
In Response To: ancestor of pianist-composer Bud Powell ()
I'm delighted that you posted your query on Afrigeneas. I'm sure that the historians who post here will assist you.
Bennie McRae who hosts this page, also has a site focused on the black military. His legendary site Lest We Forget attracts researchers from all over the globe. His information comes from primary research sources.
The url below will take you to Lest We Forget. The page is on the Spanish American Civil War and lists the African-American units including its members. I found a few Powells.
Ironically, acclaimed researcher with the same name as Bud's is Tony Powell. He is recognized as an expert in the Spanish American war. Links on the referenced page will take you to Tony and his incredible research.
