Re: POWELL of MD - adoption brickwall

Did you ever find anything about your relatives Audrey? I think I may have found the right family in the census.

Their childrens names didn't match yours at first, but look at the name of the mother-in-law, MYERS. I think this couple are your grandparents. I think Charles Powell's name may have been Charles Herbert Powell.
