Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Ambrose POWELL

Ambrose was not listed among John's children in the early reunion notes, but because he received disinterested shares of John's estate, he is included here.

Residences & events:

1853 Moultrie Co, IL, Ambrose signed the following:

"June the 4th 1853 Recievd of John Powell administrator of the Estate of Wm powell deseast mi disinterrested shear in full of the Estate of Said Deseast.
Ambrose Powell"

The handwriting and spelling on this receipt is identical to George's note and dated the same day. It was probably written by George and signed by Ambrose.
