Recently I have come across a book that reprints items from Terrell County newspapers. It says that James W. Powell visited Texas before his death. So did Ira William Trewitt Sr. who is said to have died in Erath Co., Texas in 1888. On p.421 of the newspaper book it states "Mr.James W. Powell, an old and highly respected citizen of this county, died of consumption at his home on the evening of the 22nd instant. The deceased was a clever, jovial old gentleman and was among the first inhabitants of the county. His remains were deposited in the Sardis Cemetery last Thursday morning with Masonic honors." Date of this item was the year 1876 or 1877. I will have to examine the book at the library again to tie down the date a little better. Kathleen Rheman
