looking for parents of one John Lewis Powers
I don't know much of my great-great grandfather, John Lewis Powers. He was born in Ireland sometime in 1853 and died on the Mississippi River between Memphis and Helena between 1898 and 1900. He was married to Ellen Marnetta Sanderson of St. Paul, Minnesota and also to a woman named Ouineda (pronounced We-ne-da). Ouineda was a Native American, most likely Cherokee.
