Immediate Family

About Noah Powell

"He married Mary Smith in 1830. In April 1851, he and his family started for Oregon with his brothers John and Alfred, arriving in September. He settled in the north end of Howell's Prairie in Marion County. In 1853 he moved into Yamhill County near Amity. During the five years he lived there he preached every Sunday and farmed during the week, doing his best to make a living and educate his family. He moved back into Marion County near the site of the present town of Marion, where he lived until his death. Although he had much to do on his large stock and grain farm, he never neglected his regular trips on horseback to preach at Howell's Prairie and other places, for he was a very devout Christian and a faithful minister of the Church of Christ. In addition to preaching he led the singing, first lining out the song as was the custom in those days owing to the scarcity of hymn books. With his nephew, John Propst, he often went out into the highways and byway in different parts of the country to preach the gospel. Many times the three brothers met at Central Church and took turns in preaching.

He passed away on March 8, 1875, and was buried in the Hunsaker Cemetery by the side of his two sons, John and Josiah. His wife was left to spend her remaining days with her three children living, making her home with Lavina Cornelius.
