Maryann Simpson (Powell) in Duchesne, Utah

Contributor: Poffenbergerds 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 21 years old when American Civil War: Fort Sumter surrenders to Confederate forces. The American Civil War was a war fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865. As a result of the long-standing controversy over slavery, war broke out in April 1861, when Confederate forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, shortly after U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated. The nationalists of the Union proclaimed loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States, who advocated for states' rights to expand slavery.
Mary Ann Powell was 38 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Mary Ann Powell was 44 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.
