"Floyd-Powell: Wyatt Powell, living somewhere in Virginia, married in 1768, Sallie Floyd, eldest child of William Floyd and Abediah Davis. She was born in Amherst County, Virginia, October 15, 1747. Wyatt and Sallie Floyd Powell had a daughter, Nancy F. Powell, born 1771, married March 1, 1792, Dr. Robert Walker; and their children were: Thomas Walker and Sallie Walker. The other children of Wyatt and Sallie Floyd Powell were: Cornelius, Richard, Rhoda, Mona Elizabeth, Addison Burton, Dr. James, and Sarah Wyatt Powell. Sallie Wyatt, born 1781, the youngest child, married March 30, 1830, Capt. John Coleman, of Caroline County, Virginia.
"There was a Wyatt family living in King and Queen County, and probably later in Caroline. The fact that Sallie Wyatt Powell married a Coleman from Caroline County might mean that the Powells may also have lived in Caroline. Because of the marriage of Nancy F. Powell to Dr. Robert Walker, it is believed that Wyatt Powell was a relative of Ambrose Powell, who accompanied Dr. Thomas Walker to Kentucky in 1754."
Notes for WIATT POWELL:
Anna Cartlidge says they lived in Amherst until about 1796 when they moved to Lynchburg, Campbell Co., Va. His will is recorded in Amherst Co., Book 6, p. 13, Sept. 21 1818. The name is usually "Wiatt."
