Maria Hardenbrook Powell

Maria Hardenbrook was born abt 1815 in New Jersey. She was the second child of George and Ann Kline Hardenbrook.  According to the records at the Ulysses Historical Society, Maria married John T. Powell on 7 September 1853. 

John was married previously to Ann Eliza (last name unknown). John and Ann Eliza had two sons, Nelson b: 1830 and Frank b: abt 1839.  John and Maria had a daughter, Ellen (Helen) Powell b: abt 1855.

John T. Powell made his living as a tailor. He died 12 March 1881 at the age of 74.  John, and the rest of his family, except Maria, is buried in the Tyrone (NY) Union Cemetery. This cemetery was also known as the Williams Burying Grounds.

It would therefore make sense that Maria would be interred in the Tyrone Union Cemetery, but she does not show up on the listing of graves.  Consequently, I have yet to discover Maria’s death date and where she is buried.  I have a call into the caretaker of the Tyrone Union Cemetery and hope to hear from him soon. And I would love to have any information Powell family genealogists might have as to Ann Eliza’s maiden name as well as to where Maria’s final resting place is located.
