Zilpha m. James Matison "Matt" BALLARD 30 Dec 1878 in Scott Co., VA. On the marriage register only first names of parents were required. Zilpha gives her father's name as Patterson & mother as Jamiah. Later a cousin tells me that Grt Grandmother Zilpha lived with her family the last years of her life and that as a little girl she was always told Zilpha's parents were Hopkins Richardson & Mary "Polly" Davis Richardson. On the marriage register the place of birth is listed as Wise County, VA. I have not been able to find any proof of this. Another Richardson researcher tells me that Zilpha was born in Russell Co., VA in 1855. Of course I have not found this proof either. It is suppose to be in the County records. Hopkins was suppose to have been born in NC, Mary Davis born I believe in Grayson Co., VA.

I've long tried to locate birth AND
death records for Lafayette AKA Fayette POWELL...who was
born probably somewhere in KY c1860.
The only thing I know for sure - I have the marriage
register - is that the marriage of Elizabeth ['Lizzie']
Rogers and Lafayette Powell was solemnized on 9 May 1881
in Scott Co KY. The bride's father gave consent and
Lafayette was 'of age'.
Their only offspring - my grandfather - Lewis Irwin/Erwin
POWELL was born Mar 1882. Lizzie remarries in Nov 1884
and I have no idea what happened to, or where Fayette
went. I've long searched for either a birth or death
record...so if anyone has any clues about this POWELL,
I'd love to hear them.
