(Editor: Some report that the early Wyatt Powells all spelled their name Wiatt.... this is the Wiatt Preston Tuley in these notes elsewhere... and Wm White must be Mary's father...)

Notes for MARY WHITE:

"Nathaniel Floyd, the youngest brother, who married Mollie Thomas in Louisville in 1793, was a soldier in Thomas Joyes' regiment at the battle of New Orleans," says Kathleen Jennings in her work Louisville's First Families -A SERIES OF GENEALOGICAL SKETCHES, Published by THE STANDARD PRINTING CO.- Louisville, KY 1920.

Was Mollie a Mary and a White before a Thomas?? Or vice versa? (editor: it seems so. See Tuley's record)
