Maryann Simpson (Powell) in Duchesne, Utah

Contributor: goinboatin Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

Maryann Simpson Powell was my Great, Great Grandmother. Cindy LaCrue mentioned in the history of William James Powell, that it is not known how or when Maryann moved from Richfield to Duchesne. However, my grandfather, Carlos Batrum Marsing remembers GG Grandmother Maryann. Grandfather Carlos Marsing and his sister, Emma Caroline Marsing (Remund) were raised by their uncle, Martin Luther Marsing and aunt, Lucy Fidelia Powell (Marsing). They (M. L. and Lucy) built the first brick house in Duchense, Utah. The house still stands on the southwest corner of 200 West and Highway 40 in Duchesne. Martin Luther Marsing and Lucy Fidelia Powell (daughter of William James Powell and Maryann Simpson) raised their family there. Grandpa Carlos remembers that GG Maryann lived across the street from M.L. and Lucy in a small house on the southeast corner of 200 West in Duchesne. Grandpa Carlos was 12 years old when GG Maryann died. He remembers that he would milk a cow and take the milk across the street to Maryann. It was also apparent that her daughter, Lucy and Martin Luther pretty much took care of her and assisted her while she lived in Duchesne until her death. Although Grandpa Carlos Marsing was not directly related to Maryann, he called her Grandma Powell. The genealogy of Grandpa Carlos is a little convoluted but Grandpa Carlos had a sound basis for calling her Grandma Powell. Grandpa Carlos Marsing married Thenelda Powell who was a daughter of Joseph Hyrum Powell, son of Maryann and William Joseph Powell. So, Maryann was my grandmother, Thenelda Powell Marsing's grandmother. Grandpa Carlos Marsing was raised as if he was one of the children and son of M. L. Marsing and Lucy Fidelia Powell. Therefore, his cousins were actually grandchildren of Maryann Powell and he like his cousins would refer to her as Grandma Powell.

Life timeline of Mary Ann Powell

Mary Ann Powell was 20 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Mary Ann Powell was 29 years old when Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, breaking away from the American Equal Rights Association which they had also previously founded. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.
Mary Ann Powell was 35 years old when Winston Churchill, English colonel, journalist, and politician, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1965) Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British politician, army officer, and writer, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party.

Mary Ann Powell was 59 years old when Spanish–American War: The Treaty of Paris is signed, officially ending the conflict. The Spanish–American War was fought between the United States and Spain in 1898.

Mary Ann Powell was 64 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
