Comment on Abner Powers by Gary Wed, 24 Oct 2012 20:45:39 +0000 I’m sorry Beverly, I don’t have further information. According to my records Manly Powers was married to Roxanne Caswell (or perhaps Caldwell) and they had two kids: Their daughter Lucinda Manly Powers had at least one child – Wesley J. Powers — and Amanda Powers (not sure of this). If you have further information which would perhaps help clarify this I would appreciate it. You can find further information on Wesley Powers on this site.
